i've been BOO'd

I've been boo'd. Welcome to the suburbs. Bill and I are in our new house in the suburbs (don't tell anyone i really like it and am thinking of selling the house in town).

anyway, the other night the doorbell rang and when we went to get it, there was a package at the door. People are so nice here. Where i come from, if you did a ding-dong-ditch, and left something at the door--it was a bag of poo on fire. Well, apparently in the suburbs they do this cutesy thing where you leave a goodie bag on the porch and you are supposed to do the same for 2 more neighbors on the block. All secretly and all little prizes at the door.

Bill had been BOO'd before in other neighborhoods--and sure enough, i've seen the little "I've been BOO'd signs out and about on people's doors--in my neighborhood and others around Cedar Park.

And to think, in tarrytown, where I grew up, we just ding-dong-ditched. As they say in real estate location, location, location.

my thought for the day

inside all of us, especially us women, is this creature that we have always been. somewhere along the way and in life, especially in the context of relationships, we lose the shape and form of that being. our boundaries become translucent. we need to keep remembering who we are and hold on to that. not that we can't change or evolve, but we must not lose that core of who we are....THAT is what begins us as beautiful.

cosmo or redbook

at one point after my divorce, i came to this realization that i was no longer a redbook girl. that i was once again, a cosmo girl. for the record, i have NEVER been a woman's day girl....EVER.
anyway, i'm not sure how to balance the shift into the redbook world. i don't mind it, in fact, i enjoy it....but i certainly don't want to loose all of the cosmo girl....
for now...i'm going to go read my april edition of INSTYLE.....maybe that is what i should really be ;)

10 January 2006


Someone thought I should blog about my dates. I don't agree. :) But, unlike many single people, I enjoy going on dates....I enjoy meeting new people. The risk of my energy connecting with someone else's....either as friends or more. that is just one of those tuesday afternoon things that make life a little fun. and when they go awkwardly....it is just as fun to come home and laugh with a good friend about it.

One of my good friends has a girl now....and I'm so excited for him. He is a doll...and deserves a really good girl. Hon, if she hurts your heart I'm gonna stalk her ass and kick her in the knee.

Oh and by the way...I took a photo with my phone....it was CLASSIC Austin. I was driving down barton springs rd....and there was a clean cut man riding a bike in nothing but his TEEENY TINY PINK and BLACK ZEBRA speedo style bathing suit. NICE. sadly...really sadly....it didn't save on my phone.
