A tribute to blogger friendships

When I first started blogging, my now-16-year-old son was a baby. I’m on my third blog (and I have a fourth one in which I publish erotic fiction), so I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to WordPress. Ha.

So it won’t be anyone’s surprise that I have made a few friends along the way.

Summer so far: lifted restrictions, new hobbies and a little update

This is the first summer in which neither kid is playing baseball. They both started with t-ball at age 4… They are now 13 and a half and 16.

Because we are still in the slowly emerging opening up of lockdown (stage 2 with stage 3 happening in a week) not much activity is available for them. My son picked up golf and is looking for a part-time job, but my daughter is in that tricky age where she’s too young to get a job and there aren’t too many options available right now for volunteering and other things.

So summer so far is looking very similar to the last 16 months of lockdown… Kids staring at screens.

Old and ugly

Something has been percolating in my brain for a while, but I couldn’t find the words to talk about it on a public forum until today. Perhaps I will find the words if I simply type them into the keyboard.

It began with a syndicated episode of The Big Bang Theory. I see the scene in front of me but I can’t find it when I google it. It’s not so much the scene that made an impression anyway, it’s the phrase.

This is how I remember it (paraphrased):

A quick update and some questions for you

I have two half-posts ready for Tarot Tuesdays but they sound odd. They are not ready to publish. I may skip this week and get back to my scheduled Tuesday series next week.

I also have another post almost ready where I complain about a comment Penny made on The Big Bang Theory. It hit a nerve. Allow me to give you a glimpse: old people are ugly.

Ya… no. I’m not in the right mood to address this comment today. 😛

AND, I have a lovely photo post almost ready to publish describing my first venture out to lunch at an outdoor patio. That happened last week when I spent six days with mom in the suburbs. On a whim, we decided to go to the old part of town and have pizza. They renovated the entire downtown along the Lakeshore, and it was really cute to go wander around and find a place to have lunch after the excruciating 16+ months of being locked up like inmates.

Info-graphics, bitchiness, and a brief introduction to Enneagrams

I came across a couple of bloggers recently who have impressed and entertained me on many levels, so I thought I’d give them a shout-out. They’re both fellow midlifers but a little further ahead than me, and I’m pleased as punch to have discovered them.

Tarot Supplement – What’s in the cards

Today’s Tarot Supplement title is courtesy of Deb who suggested it in this post. Read about the launch of Tarot Tuesdays here.

As you will find out on the upcoming Tarot Tuesday, I did not study anything about tarot cards prior to choosing some and reading them. I simply dove in and dabbled around the internet to make sense of the cards.
