Child-free...Or Just Free?

I am a "woman of a certain age".  (Love that expression; it says everything...and not much at all).  Never married, no kids.  Spinsterlicious.  And I've got a pretty fantastic life.  I'm pretty good at dating and I have a nice career running my own consumer research and strategy company that has brought me a vacation home, an active social life, and travels around the world.

Hide and Seek?...

Hide and Seek?...

     While there are hundreds of women who religiously fill their closets with mountains of shoes, many of us, including myself, hoard masks behind those doors for all types of occasions. We collect masks for hiding secrets and pain, bad habits and weaknesses, skeletons and emotions but most dangerously, we attempt to cover our vulnerability and low self esteem.

3 Uncommon Ways to Save Your Marriage From Divorce

3 Uncommon Ways to Save Your Marriage From Divorce

I was so happy the day I married my husband. We were both sparkling eyes and hearts full of love. We swore to be together forever and we meant it. Cut to 11 years later. Every day I ask myself how to save marriage from divorce. We hardly ever talk or see each other. A silent anger is between us all the time. We never spend family time together.

My Breast Lump Scare

My Breast Lump Scare

A few days ago, I went for my annual Gyno exam. This is the appointment that I dread. As much as I like my gynecologist, who is one of the nicest doctors that I have ever had, I fear this appointment. I always have the 'what if' mentality when it comes to this appointment. What if my doctor finds a breast lump? What if they find cancerous cells in my pap smear? What if there is a cyst in my ovary? Too many 'what if's' going through my mind. The other day...my what if question turned into "What could the lump be?"

I Shouldn't Love This Show, Should I?

I Shouldn't Love This Show, Should I?

One of my newest favorite tv shows is Snapped, on the Oxygen network. My sister turned me on to it. I was laid up with a cold on Sunday and came across a Snapped marathon while I was channel-surfing. Each episode is a profile of a murder case where the killer is a woman. Each year, approximately 16,000 people are murdered in the United States. Only 7% of the killers are female (FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program). I'm assuming that since murder by a woman is so rare, this is why Snapped explores the crime and, more interestingly, the lives of the women who did the killing.
