Not that I have used them personally, but because I try my best to not bury my head in the technological sand just because I am 49 (...and happily married, I might add), I know a thing or two about dating sites. Bear with me… The one thing I know is that at least one… Continue reading Swipe left…

More on predicting the future (in case you have been arguing with me…)

This blog is for those of you who read my post last week and have been arguing in your head ever since. If you haven’t read it yet, take a minute to do that before you finish this or it might not make very much sense. The previous blog was about how we have a… Continue reading More on predicting the future (in case you have been arguing with me…)

“Back to the Future”

By now you know I live in the Midwest. Last week they (“they” being meteorologists who in my opinion have one of the worst jobs ever, being as most of what they forecast rarely happens as they predict, resulting in frustrated and disappointed people around the planet…or maybe that was just me) told us we… Continue reading “Back to the Future”

Extraction!

I don’t usually write at 4:30 in the afternoon, but today I am a little off because I got a tooth extracted this morning. I went in at 7:00 am and left at 9:45. I have mentioned before that I am a big baby when it comes to dental work. My heart rate rises and… Continue reading Extraction!

A huge mistake! (Followed by “God is my refuge”)

I have been reading through my book to collect quotes for my Soul-Selfettes (posted on Instagram and FB in between full blog posts). And it happened, one of my worst fears came true. I found a HUGE mistake! I haven't actually read my book in book form yet because I was afraid of this exact… Continue reading A huge mistake! (Followed by “God is my refuge”)

Pull yourself together!

“Pour yourself a glass of wine, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.”-Elizabeth Taylor Recently a friend gave me an adorable make-up pouch with this quote on it. I do whole-heartedly agree that lipstick is the cornerstone of all cosmetic collections, but that’s neither here nor there. There’s been some wildness going on in… Continue reading Pull yourself together!

“Sick and tired…”

Regardless of what you think of Bill Cosby, you have to admit that he has some pretty hilarious insights into parenting. When I was little we had a cassette tape of Bill Cosby, “Himself”. He did a little bit about How his mother was always “sick and tired” of this and “sick and tired” of… Continue reading “Sick and tired…”

Rules are made to be broken

For some reason, while I was taking my in-laws to the airport last week, I made a comment about how I was a “rule follower.” I was a little surprised that they seemed very surprised that I thought this about myself. They didn’t share my assessment. It might have something to do with a couple… Continue reading Rules are made to be broken

“Me too”

I suspect that the title of this blog will attract almost as many random hits as my blog entitled “Let’s talk about Trump”. To be specific, I guess I should have entitled this “You Too? Me Too.” Before I settled on “Soul-Selfie” for my book, that was one of the titles I was seriously considering.… Continue reading “Me too”
