My Life in A Bag

June 27, 2011

36

I’m leaving for London tomorrow.  I’ll be there for a month (My daughter will be giving birth to her second child), and so I’ve been packing my one-allowable-but-not-more-than-50-lbs-in-weight suitcase with baby clothes that have been stored at my house, gifts, items my daughter and son-in-law can’t get in the largest city in the European Union, and […]

If the shoe fits, you’re doing something wrong.

Thanks to my friend Barbara, I have been alerted to Kobi Levi’s “shoe creatures.”  Kobi is an Israeli shoe designer who makes shoes for people like Lady Gaga. If you are an astute reader, the previous sentence should have you asking, “Renee, what’s with the ‘like Lady Gaga’ part?  No one is like Lady Gaga.  […]

A 100,000 Year History of Pregnancy, Childbirth and the First Six Months Of Life

December 27, 2010

For those of you who live someplace other than the bottom of my clothes-to-be-ironed basket, you are aware that the world is always changing.  And pregnancy, childbirth and young motherhood have changed along with it.  I am aware of this because I have an 18 month old grandson, Jonah.  Although he looks remarkably like the […]

This Cricket was No Jiminy

Life in the Boomer Lane is not afraid of insects.  Unless they want to crawl into her nose or ears.  And they always do.  Last night was a typical example. Visualize this: LBL is reading in bed.  Now Husband is sleeping.  It’s peaceful, serene.  LBL is loving her book (To the End of the Land, David Grossman).  […]

A secret “Politician’s Handbook” has been discovered in a cave not far from where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.  If you don’t believe Life in the Boomer Lane, look it up.  Here is an excerpt from p.359: 1. If something good happens and your party is in power, take full credit and appear on […]

I've Become A Cliche

October 20, 2010

28

  I was sitting at my computer yesterday morning, minding my own business and looking like I do every morning: skimpy tee shirt with no bra (I am, shall we say, well-endowed and I should actually be sleeping in a bra), ratty pajama bottoms, electrified-looking hair.  My Now Husband Dan had left to fondle his boat.  […]

What Not to Wear Around Livestock

During our visit with our friends Glenda and Ralph who live in York Harbor, Maine, we attended the Maine Fryeburg Fair.  Imagine a wine festival, only they ran out of wine and someone ran to the 7-11 and stocked up on beer and soda.  Or a food festival that featured totally normal foods like pickles […]

Why I Like Being A Boomer

September 17, 2010

10

                                                                                I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who is two years older than me.  At some point in the conversation, she said “I know that technically I’m not a Boomer, having been born one year before the era of Boomerdom began.  But I still consider myself one.”  I understand this.  […]
