Life in the Boomer Lane subscribes to a site titled mindbodygreen, mostly to be informed that whatever she is doing is entirely bad and wrong.

Life in the Boomer Lane’s last post concerned death.  This one does, as well.  Lest you think LBL has changed her blog to Death in the Boomer Lane, let her assure you this isn’t the case.  After today’s post, LBL will return once again to less weighty issues, in which she can incorporate satire, immaturity, […]
