Are you a car person? Admittedly, I am not. To me, my car’s function is to get me to and from where I need to be. Since that sometime means driving through inclement weather, I generally drive a SUV or cross-over.   For the past six years I have leased a GMC Terrain. I loved my Terrain but, for some reason, when the second lease recently ran out I wanted to shake things up. So I walked into an Audi dealer and looked at their SUVs. The cars seemed fine but the salesperson’s a...

I am turning 60 this summer, as are many of my longtime friends. Given that we are still in a pandemic, we are all finding creative ways to celebrate.   For my husband’s 60th birthday, this past October, I had friends and family from near and far submit a short video, and pictures if they had, to wish him a happy birthday. My daughter put it all together into one video. He absolutely loved his video and looks at it often. For a small outdoor family celebration I had a chef...

Last week I took a day to work from home in the morning as I had my annual check-up scheduled in the early afternoon. After my check-up (which went fine), I took some time to do some local errands.     It was a rainy day and I was in really a blah mood. I rushed into Costco with a frown on my face and my head down. Suddenly a woman stopped me, which initially frightened me, as I was lost in my blah thoughts. She quickly told me that she wanted to say she really liked my over...

I am truly enjoying seeing on social media all of the post-vaccine reunions people are having with their loved ones. From seeing friends reunite with their elderly parents to friends reuniting, each picture brings a smile to my face.     My first post-vaccine reunion was with my long-time friends from high school. It was a surprise for my friend Mark for his 60th birthday. The combination of surprise and happiness on his face when he saw me coupled with the strength of his h...

This weekend was the weekend. I got my hair colored. The moment I see those pesky gray hairs peaking through, I start figuring out the best time to get my color done.     Every so often I think about embracing my gray. Women such as Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Meryl Streep have done so and look phenomenal. I wonder why can’t I?     I also wonder whether this a gender issue. When I ask my husband, who is about 70% gray now why he does not feel the need to color his ha...

I recently read an interesting article in New York Magazine. The subject of the article was the perennial maskers. The people interviewed for the story claimed that, even after mask mandates are lifted in New York and by the federal government, they would continue to wear their masks. Most of them agreed that they felt safe wearing masks and could see no reason to change that.     The article made me contemplate a mask free world. As most of us, I have been hiding behind ...

I am a person who loves her routines, especially my Saturday morning routine. My husband works on Saturdays so I have the time to myself. Almost every Saturday morning, I exercise, do my office billing, write my blog, and then do my errands. That is pretty much the way my day goes most Saturdays.   This past Saturday morning, a surprise birthday brunch was scheduled for a friend. While happy to go and celebrate, it did muddle up my routine. So I got up a bit early and exer...

As we continue in this pandemic one observation has become readily apparent, video conferencing, and for me video court appearances are here to stay. So, my question is, is it getting any easier for you?   For me that answer is complicated. I had two opposite experiences in the same week.   Early in the week there was a scheduled video court conference in a matter I was no longer appearing on. I received a call from the court asking me if I would mind “clicking into the a...

I am sure it has happened to everyone. You are on your way somewhere and realize you forgot your cell phone. It happened to me last week. I was on my way to meet my children for dinner. Ten minutes away from the restaurant I realized I had left my cell phone on the charger in my home.   Initially panic set in. I was too far from my house to retrieve my phone. I started imagining horrible scenarios, such as a client would need me and I would not be available. My husband quick...

A longtime friend, Melanie, called me last week to tell me that she had been re-watching episodes of “Ally McBeal” on Amazon Prime. Melanie and I met when our children were very young, as single mothers, living in the same gated community. Melanie and I, and our children, quickly became close friends.   Back then, “Ally McBeal” was important to Melanie and me. We would let our children play in one room and she and I would escape to another to watch. It gave us a one-hour es...
