Welcome to my blog. I may not have the most EXCITING life but I do have a life with many components that men and women, (mostly women) can relate to. I am very honest, sometimes too honest which gets me in big trouble with my mother. I am a middle (older) aged woman married for over 25 years and we have 2 grown-up children. Marriage ( the good, the bad and the ugly) and two adult children (is that an oxymoron?) are achievements in themselves. Being married for that long deserves not only a medal, but a long vacation in Hawaii; I long for romance, he doesn’t have a romantic bone or thought in his body. Sigh.
I dream about living near the water, I love to collect shells, I am happiest at the beach, I write about many aspects of my life: LOVE: FOOD, FAMILY, FEELINGS, CELEBRITIES, FIBROMYALGIA, FOOD ( NO, IT’S NOT A TYPO.) I really LOVE food.
You will find all different topics, you won’t get bored. From watching Jimmy Fallon on TV (we tape it) to the stress of unemployment and my hatred of harsh, long winters, to my favorite restaurant or my delicious (alarming) food combinations (yum) it will all be here.
Expect the unexpected: the joy of marshmallow peeps or the grief from my father’s death, or the wonder of that special friend who sent me a package of Hostess’ orange cupcakes after Hostess closed. Thank goodness, they are back!
There is always something new and different. You meet a lot of great new people on blogs, some become new friends. To me, that’s like a Christmas present in April.
My philosophy when people ask me “if it’s true or fiction” is this: “There’s a bit of truth in fiction and a bit of fiction in truth.” You decide.
I’m really happy you’re here.
