A Helmet-Less Summer

Biking without a helmet. Roller skating without a helmet. Jumping off of really high things without a helmet. Climbing trees without a helmet. Is anyone sensing a theme? Okay, I’m older than a lot of moms out there. Much older. As in, I’m a grandmother already older. (Dear God, I still can’t wrap my head around that.) Back in the “old days,” which, for me, meant being a child in the ‘60’s (Gaaaaaahhhhhh!!!), [...]

A Little Less Freedom, Please

The arguments will continue ad nauseam, until the next horrific killing. Last month, it was people enjoying a night out in an Orlando night club. Last week, a sniper took the lives of police officers in Dallas with an automatic weapon. I'm sick of it. All of the killing. And I don't care what anyone says, Yes, it's the nut with the gun, BUT IT'S ALSO THE GUN. Generally, I stay away from [...]

Cleaning Up Your Self-Talk

I talk to myself a lot. And I'm pretty sure you do, too. Sometimes, I'm trying to talk out why the heck I walked into the kitchen: "What did I come in here for?" Other times, I'm talking about what I'm going to make for dinner: "Maybe I can do pasta tonight." Those are the benign chats. Yet it's not always that innocent. Sometimes, my self-talk seems designed to beat me up, even [...]

An Almost Perfect Vacation

Me and Dave enjoying Florida, as evidenced by Dave smiling. He usually looks like someone's sticking bamboo shoots under his fingernails in photos. Ultimately, it was the bathrooms. After nearly 35 years of marriage, with the anniversary coming upon us in June, my husband, Dave, and I decided to take a vacation to celebrate. We traveled to Florida, spending a few days in Sarasota, a favorite spot, with the blue-green waters [...]

Hello Doris! A Movie Review.

Sweet Sally Field. I can never get let go of her roll in 'The Flying Nun' which I watched (hmm) religiously as a kid. But here she is, post Forest Gump, The Amazing Spider Man and some less significant tv roles. And she brings all the things we love together---romance, youth, quirkiness and her sweet ways in her role as 'Doris'---the odd older woman who works in a Manhattan ad agency in the [...]

The Need for Indulgence

Whatever it is--a manicure, a spa day, a piece of chocolate, or even a new lipstick--indulgence is a must for women, and one we too often forget. Heck, we don't forget it; it never registers to begin with! We're busy, over-worked, tired, and we don't take care of ourselves. The good news is, it doesn't take much. But we have to put ourselves, and a little indulgence, on the program. Click here to check [...]
