I just dated myself…

This is the short conversation I had with my son…

Me to him: “stop asking. You sound like a broken record.”

Him: “A what?”

That was the extent of the conversation because I realized that the term “sound like a broken record,” has become obsolete and I have gotten older than I had cared to realize.

I was born and grew up with records and cassette tapes. We had ONE family phone that hung on the wall in the kitchen. It had like a 15 foot cord on it so you could walk all around the kitchen and into the living room. I think you could even get to the front door.

Then there were cds. The clarity of the music was incredible. (but I still have some of my cassette tapes to this day)

Then, there were iPods. I was one of those people who were sceptical about them. I have one but I prefer my cds. Yes I know that dates me right there.

oh well. I am old and I embrace that fact. I will be able to tell my children’s children that I was around for the invention of cds, dvds, iPod, laptop computers, flat screen tv (which i also had a hard time with)  blu ray, ipads, iPhones. oh and that I used to play Nintendo with a tiny, rectangle controller that dug into the palm of my hands for hours while i played! OH and that there was no such thing as DVR! You had to watch it on live tv all the time…unless you were one of those fortunate people who had a vcr.  (and even then it was a toss-up as to whether or not you could get it to record right…or keeping somebody from recording over it!)  

Ok now I am just rambling…and I have REALLY dated myself because I just wrote on this blog about how things were when I was  young…oops…

have a good evening…this old  fogie is going to bed (yes it is 8 o’clock…its just what old fogies do!)


The Joy of Cookie Butter…

A little over a year ago, I wrote about my love of Nutella. However, I have recently discovered a new joy and love, and that is the Joy of Cookie Butter. There are no words to describe the taste. I get almost giddy every time I take a bite. I literally keep a jar with me in my lunch box.


Cinderella and Prince Charming…

“A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true.”

Disney’s Cinderella

Cinderella is probably my most favorite fairy tale. I have had a set of the above figurines since I was like 3. (Mine are not in near as good a shape…I believe Prince Charming’s hand with the slipper has been glued and reglued many times and Cinderella is chipped everywhere.)

Smiling to myself…

Why am I smiling to myself at 5:45 in the morning?

I wrote an email yesterday to a certain someone. It contained many things, none of which I will share with the world-wide web. : )

However, I got a reply back this morning…and thats why I am smiling to myself at 5:45 in the morning.
