Summer Beauty And Other Myths

Listen, I know I’ve been out for awhile. I’ve missed you. But now that we’re all back together again, can we talk about summer beauty? I don’t believe in it any more. And not only because the summer’s almost over and I’m jaded and sun damagaed. I don’t believe in because it doesn’t exist in … Continue reading “Summer Beauty And Other Myths”

You Take Care Now

I had my first manicure last week. Actually, it wasn’t a real manicure. It was a fake one, lasting only about ten minutes. And it was free. And I was in an airport lounge where the “manicurist” might also have been the “janitor.” I don’t know. I didn’t ask. Because it was FANTASTIC. My nails … Continue reading “You Take Care Now”

Swimming Upstream With Diana Nyad

Miss Diana is now 64 years old, and this week, after 35 years of pursuit, she swam from Havana, Cuba, to … Continue reading “Swimming Upstream With Diana Nyad”

Fast-Forward Family

Will the big invisible finger pushing the fast-forward button of our lives please step off? I’m serious. I’m getting irritable. When did this happen? Is anyone else hearing me on this? Four days ago, we brought Ana home from the hospital and Marc stood in her nursery in the wee hours, listening to her weep … Continue reading “Fast-Forward Family”

Pool Time and Other Dangers

I really do love me some pool time. Am I wrong to say such a thing, in this day of skin cancer awareness and limited sun hours? Well, I do. I’m not saying I bake out there until my epidermis flakes off and  my hair catches on fire, but I do love to feel the … Continue reading “Pool Time and Other Dangers”

Oscar Who?

Well, people, the transformation is complete. I am officially completely out of it. There was a time when I had seen all of the movies up for Best Picture at the Oscars. In fact, our best friends used to throw an Oscar party where folks would dress up in costumes reflecting their pick for best … Continue reading “Oscar Who?”

’94 Rules!

Remember high school? Riiiight. Me neither. I’m trying really hard in this moment to remember high school, but I’m afraid all I can remember is big hair and being nervous. Photo source. I don’t think the hair made me nervous but it certainly couldn’t have helped. I’m getting ready to speak at a youth group convention. … Continue reading “’94 Rules!”

Happy Old Age!

I, for one, have not seen the north side of midnight since I birthed my last child, and even then I needed a full medical team and IV fluids. So I’m bright and chirpy this morning! Happy New Year! I hope you rang it in with a bang, or at least without an IV. Here’s … Continue reading “Happy Old Age!”
