Bradley says this is the most honest picture taken of me lately.  He says it shows my skin texture and color, my eyes and my energy.   I thought that was nice, so thought I should post that picture for posterity.


One day, when the polish of middle age has worn off, when I am old, grey , withered and wizened, I can point to this picture to tell my grandkids, “This is what your Mimi looked like at 37.”  Because I WILL be a “Mimi”, just like my mom.  And I am sure, that just like my kids are about their grandparents, my own grandchildren won’t be able to believe that I was ever that young.  And while I may doubt it today, we will all be able to see how lovely and happy I was at 37.

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
