Are you one of those people who take great pride in your ability to do several things at once? Do you cook dinner, feed the dog, and talk on the phone all at the same time without sautéing the Alpo and giving Fido the hamburgers?   Do you wipe the sink while you’re brushing your teeth

The View from My Armchair

I am in recupery.  To describe my present condition as "recovery" gives the impression that I've entered a 12-step program.  Which I haven't.  Although I wouldn't object to attending AA meetings provided they were  held anywhere that was not my living room.

Steppin’ Out With My Baby

I have mixed feelings about formal occasions. On one hand, it’s an opportunity to release my inner child and play dress-up. On the other hand, my outer “mature” adult cringes as it contemplates the possible necessity of Spanx or other constricting undergarments. Even the idea of panty hose makes me shudder.
