It’s Just A New Kind Of Cool

If I was ever cool, I don’t remember it. This thought made me laugh as I put my vintage apron over my sweats and Aeropostale hoodie, so I could make chocolate chip cookies.

Yes…that’s me being a dork and standing on the toilet to take a selfie for you. Oh and I don’t have a growth on my cheek…damn iphone.

There are silver linings everywhere. So I am getting older and maybe a little nervous about my fleeting “middle” years….BUT, I don’t pressure myself the way I would have at a younger age to not eat too many cookies so my tummy stays flat. I ate too many plus a side of cookie dough. I’m feeling bloated and satisfied.

I’m at an age where, although I tease and call myself a dork for wearing a vintage apron….truth is we all know my vintage apron is so fabulous it cancels out my sweats and tennies.

I’m embracing my forties. Bring it on. As a possible fellow writer reading along, do you ever find yourself feeling enlightened as you write? Am I inspiring myself? Maybe somewhat, but it’s also knowing there is someone else in cyberspace reading my post, writing their own post to inspire me, other kindred spirits….

I am a sentimental, emotional, passionate person. In other words, sometimes I’m a train wreck. I’m not sure where I am going with this, but I am sure you are wondering the same thing.

I guess as I laughed at myself, and then enjoyed the fruits of my labor – I wondered what other moms at home were feeling today. Especially you moms hitting those middle years. Heck, all women in general. Our tasks, our feelings, our jobs on the home front are so often unknown by others.

I’m not a huge technology fan. I am learning to appreciate it more since reading blogs and starting my own. Being a mom at home can be lonely and discouraging. With technology look at how we can connect and encourage each other in a way our mothers couldn’t! Only another stay at home mom would “get” that I laugh at myself as I put my darling apron on over my fancy sweatshirt. By the way, I served the cookies delicately arranged on my pretty china along with glasses of milk for the kids. They may not notice the pretty presentation, but I did….and I like pretty things.

Think I’ll warm up my tea and grab another cookie. It’s quiet and I must take advantage of that!IMG_1553
