Thoughts on the Rear View

Have you ever noticed that a woman carries herself differently when she feels cute? I have. I know I do it myself. I walk taller, throw my shoulders back, and have more spring in my step when I feel like I’m having a really good hair day or wearing a particularly flattering outfit. This is […]

Just Call Me Grace

Dateline: Thursday, May 8, around 4:30 PM
The scene: An office, where, toward the end of a very long and uber-busy day, our heroine (that would be me, because it’s my blog and if I can’t be the heroine of my own blog, then what’s the point!) is whizzing between one desk and another on her […]

Mangled Monday Revisited

It’s been about a month since I shared the words of wisdom of my anonymous “friend” who is doing some sort of bizarre lost-in-translation thing with my blog posts and it hasn’t stopped, so I decided it’s time for another edition of Mangled Monday.

Mangled Monday

First of all thank you for the comments from yesterday!!! It feels good to know there are people out there who get it and who went through the muddy taupes at oddball ages too. (And interesting that several of us have had 46 be a nasty one! Go figure!) It was wonderful to hear from […]

Dreaming in Verse

Y’know, sometimes even when you remember a dream after you wake up, you just can’t quite capture the incredibly majestic bizarriosity (<—new word!) of it on paper…or on screen, as the case may be. But I have to try to tell you this anyway. Yes, really, I have to!
The last dream I had before I […]

Well, Alrighty Then

If you recall, it was exactly two weeks ago today that I announced J had brought home a new kitten (aaawwww) who we named Trixie.
It was only a day or two later that we took Trixie to the vet for an exam*, feline leukemia test, and vaccines (please note this fact carefully, because it’s about […]
