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.

August Happiness Challenge -- Day 3
Today's happiness -- $8. I purchased two (two!) tickets for the Illinois State Lottery last month and just discovered today that they were winners: one for $6, one for $2. I spent this princely sum all in one place, right there in the convenience store where I cashed them in. I got Kleenex, orange juice, Coke and an ice cream bar. (Ice cream feels good on my scratchy throat.)
