Dance this mess around

My husband and I went to see The B52's last night. As far as date nights go, this was a great one. We stopped to eat on the way to the show at Margarita's. I got a Blood Orange Margarita, and it was AWESOME. Note: There is no photo of the margarita because, sadly, I … Continue reading Dance this mess around

Who am I really?

My husband was very inspired this year with his choice of birthday gift for me. He got me the MyHeritage DNA kit.   Me: How did you know I wanted to do that?! He: Because every time a commercial for it came on or anyone was saying they did it for the last year, you … Continue reading Who am I really?

MOVIE REVIEW: Bridget Jones’ Baby

My husband was hoping for a quiet house the other night, so I obliged him by going to the movies. 😀 I've seen and enjoyed the two prior Bridget Jones movies, so I was looking forward to this one. And it was great! Except for one thing.* I loved all the characters, the returning ones … Continue reading MOVIE REVIEW: Bridget Jones’ Baby

Rocky

Recently my husband wanted to see the movie Creed.  I had zero interest in watching it. I expected he knew that and that he would be watching it alone. Somehow, though, we ended up watching it together. I didn’t expect to like it, but guess what! I really did! I thought it was a movie … Continue reading Rocky

I give it three months

When my husband and I first became interested in each other, I wasn't all in. I thought he was too good-looking, and that we'd have fun for a while, and then he'd get tired of me. Where did I get this idea? Oh, from many (many, many) of my past relationships.    Me: "I give it … Continue reading I give it three months

Book Review: Not Even Dark Chocolate Can Fix This Mess

Not even dark chocolate can fix this mess by Kathy Eliscu is so much fun to read! I started reading this book weeks ago, when it first came out, and then I sadly had to put it aside so that I could finish a project (okay, publishing my own book!). But 'Not Even...' called to me … Continue reading Book Review: Not Even Dark Chocolate Can Fix This Mess

Tidying up

You may have heard of the book that I am reading: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo. Heck, you may even be reading it yourself. I found it on audio for free (after I bought the hardcover!) on YouTube. I sent the link out to my virtual book club (we've only … Continue reading Tidying up

Mental health break

I took a two-day break from Nano writing and went away overnight to celebrate my husband's birthday (and, you know, to take a break from sitting! At the computer! Writing! OMG! I haven't been able to feel two of the fingers on my left hand for a week!).  We had supper at Nolita,  a new-ish … Continue reading Mental health break

Clutterfly

My husband and I are currently having an....well, let's call it an ongoing discussion...about my clutterfulness. I admit it. I am a clutterholic. In my defense, I have never claimed to be otherwise. He has visions of my father's brown paper bags-bags and bags (and bags) of stuff surrounding his chair- after he died...and thinks … Continue reading Clutterfly

Home is where?

Recently my husband and I took a vacation. This is news, because it was OUT OF STATE. Way out. Like, in NJ. Just getting the same days off from work together to go took weeks-and an aligning of the planets AND and act of congress. What was better about Atlantic City than Wells, ME? Not … Continue reading Home is where?
