Today is my birthday. One more year and I’ll be in a new decade.
My husband gave me this stuff as one of my gifts. I am not sure how I feel about it. Is he trying to tell me something? Do I need anti-aging lotions? I’ll tell myself he knows I like Biotherm products and he just didn’t realise what exactly he was giving me.
I don’t feel older. I don’t feel like a grownup. People treat me like an adult. I’m expected to act like an adult and make reasonable decisions…and most of the time I do, but a piece of that insecure, awkward teenager I used to be still lives inside me. I don’t know when I will feel like I’m really a grownup…maybe never. And that’s okay.
Guess what?! Yesterday my husband woke up with a cold. Not just any cold though, a MAN COLD.
What’s the difference between a cold and a man cold you ask? Well let me tell you.
A cold is what we normally know as a stuffy/runny nose, cough, a few aches.
A man cold is all that plus a whiny, grown man who can’t quite grasp why he feels so awful. He feels like he’s dying and the world is coming to an end because he feels so terrible.
A man cold isn’t fun, especially for wives. You’d think the man was on his death-bed or suffering a horrific illness. Nope just a cold. But, a man cold because you know, men can be such babies.
Just why??? Why do this to yourself?
Kids will put salt and ice on their skin, then see how long they can endure the burn.
It might not sound like salt and ice can do much damage, but together, they can cause great harm.
The salt supercools the ice, making it MUCH colder (1 degree F) than it would be without it (32 degrees F).
Keep an eye out for these strange marks on your children and their friends as well.
Wishing all my readers a very happy, full of love, kind of day.
Christmas is a time for nostalgia, but it is also a time for making new memories. Here’s hoping that your Christmas will find you among family and friends, sharing the spirit of the season.
Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.
I leave today for 18 days vacation with my husband. We rented a house on the tiny island of Saba for 2 weeks and the are travelling to Sint Maarten for 4 nights at a beach resort. I’m looking forward to peace, quiet, eco-adventure and scuba diving.
