These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age (56). I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

A touch of writer's cramp
My federal income tax refund was direct deposited on Saturday! Here with the sequester I was expecting to have to wait forever but no, I got it in less than three weeks. I spent the afternoon today writing checks -- I made an extra mortgage payment, paid down my credit card debt and put some aside for my mom's grave marker. I have felt very bad about her being in an unmarked grave, and with this refund I won't have to wait for the whole estate/mortgage thing to be settled before I can take care of that for her.
