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.
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.
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.
Reasons I love Halloween:
- Costumes – I love seeing the types of costumes people come up with.
- Candy – It reminds me of my youth when my friends and I would plod along small country roads waiting for the next stop of candy.
- Jack-O’-Lanterns – I really enjoy seeing how creative some people get with their carving.
- Black Cats – Well I just love all cats.
- Hocus Pocus – The movie, although not scary, is an all time favourite.
- Scary Movies – Don’t know why, I just like them.
Sometimes the seasons sneak up on us, catching us off guard by ushering us into our favorite or most dreaded time of year before we are ready. This year has been no exception. It’s time to take out the warm gloves hats, scarves and shovels… winter has arrived and has no plans of leaving.
Five months since the fire. It’s still hard to believe this happened to my little town. Sometimes I forget. But then I look out my window or go for a drive and I see the destruction.
