I turned 49 a few days ago.  No, I’m not really 50 something and just using 49 as my sticky-post age.  I’m 49. I’m not fazed.  Not being fazed is a good thing. I have never been a person who was affected by my age.  I turned 16, 21, 25, 30, 40, etc. with noContinue reading “49 For 49”

Happy Birthday Grandpa

Today is my grandfather’s 90th birthday.  He’s an amazing man….. I’ve been racking my brain to think of what to say about him.  I’m usually not too stumped for words, but somehow I can’t think of just the right thing to say.  I guess, if I had to try and sum him up in aContinue reading “Happy Birthday Grandpa”

4 Down

Had a kind of hard day today.  Just not feeling well.  It’s day 7 of my cycle.  I made the mistake of getting up and taking a bath, and then shower to rinse off, right away.  I should know better.  I need sustenance before I do anything when I’m going through this.  No energy beforeContinue reading “4 Down”

I like that she’s 51. It’s a goodContinue reading “Happy Birthday Karen!”
