Good morning friends! Our week started off with one of our boys calling us with news. Usually, our son prefaces his phone calls with, “Mom, funny story.” This conversation started with a nervous cadence that all parents recognize.
I will not share what thoughts ran through my mind in those first fourteen seconds. But I was relieved the problem was solved over the phone and did not require an attorney or a hard money loan.
WHAT I AM READING
I just finished Kelly Ripa’s book, Live Wire -Long Winded Short Stories. I have a love-hate relationship with this celebrity. I don’t know if my friends even know who she is, but I knew her back on All My Children- my soap opera phase after college. I did not write the nicest review on Amazon. In hindsight, I should have finished the book before the review. And I would tell Kathie Lee Gifford to do the same.
If you do not know what I am talking about scroll down to the projects below. Or read my about page.
My favorite chapter was the one about her youngest son. I will leave it at that, but it is why I can put the self-centered, long-winded stories aside because her relationships with her adulting kids mirror mine. At the end of the book, she shared her most recent cosmetic surgery. And it may explain why my Chrome browser has a litany of ads on my home screen for that same above-the-collar bone procedure.
Simmer down! I do not have the funds or downtime.. this year. And now,
