On this, the eve of my 59th birthday

On this, the eve of my 59th birthday
I am perched comfortably in my bed, occasionally looking over at the clock. Right now, it’s 11:22pm and I am still 58 years old. I am hanging on to these last moments of this age because I still have the opportunity to say I’ll be fifty something one more time. Next year, well – that... Read more »

Aging: The good, the bad and the ugly

Aging: The good, the bad and the ugly
As I was writing this blog, I was on an airplane at 30,000 feet. I was on it for nearly 10 hours and could actually feel my skin drying from the altitude and lousy air circulation. I see now that I added a few new lines to my collection. When we landed and I stood... Read more »

High school high: what happens when I see my old friends
Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with high school friends. Whenever I have that pleasure, I always return home feeling a glow that is different from typical happiness.

With classes as far back as 1939 in attendance, I was excited and curious to... Read more »

The facts about my aging

The facts about my aging
Last week while on a sales call my customer was expressing her disdain at “nearly turning 33”. I laughed and I said “Ha! I only wish I were turning 33, I’m about to turn 55”. After telling me I looked fabulous (of course) she posed the question “So, how do you feel about that?” Hmmmm,... Read more »

Embarking on my second life

Embarking on my second life
This past weekend I had the honor and pleasure, pride, pomp and circumstance of watching my youngest daughter graduate from college. (Yes, as always the music, “pomp and circumstance” was played as I wept, forgetting to wear waterproof mascara; not pretty). As surreal a day as it was for her, she has no idea just... Read more »

Exercise is not the devil after all

Exercise is not the devil after all
(Caution – this blog will contain foul language. Once in awhile it’s a necessary evil for me).  Tonight has been a very big night for me. After completing the 60 minute DVD of Dancing With the Stars Cardio Dance I discovered something so exciting I just had to talk about it. I hate to brag... Read more »
