LAX, SUV’s and Fifty Shades

It is 5:45 and the sky is black.  Secretly I am hoping for a massive thunderstorm so no LAX practice and Yes Zumba with Laurie......not so lucky.  Practice is on and I grab my Kindle, my LAXer and off we go. Jack jumps out of the car happy to be in the rain.  I get a wave and off he goes.....leaving me to the 70's on 7 and my Fifty Shades Trilogy. I have made a few references over the…

5 months to 50

It's the 13th of the month...I am behind in reviewing my previous month's pledge and deciding what to work on this month. So let's not.  Let's just take this month to just "be": no plan, no agenda, no momentous idea....so not like me. It's Mother's Day. I am in my kitchen with my Kindle and a Iced Latte from Starbuck's.

Chip was off to the SEFCU Center for our daughter's…

I have a difficult time…

7 months to 50: Did I find peace?

Wow, February went fast, even with the extra day.  Peace came and went.  The  New England Patriots lost the Super Bowl which kind of messed up my chi for the month. Did I have any peace? Of course I did. I had peace watching the Godfather Part I with my son and explaining how beautiful and yet violent Sicily was.  I had peace when I walked my dog last night with Jack and it was snowing and quiet.  I love that…
