These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 60!) 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.

30 Day Gratitude Challenge
"Every day for 30 days, celebrate what you're grateful for, corresponding to the theme of the day."
Day #1 -- Home
I am grateful that my home is affordable. Back in 2001, when I bought this place, I was encouraged to spend more. Banks were very enthusiastic lenders back then. I settled on a 2BR/1BA condo because, well, I'm just one person. When the bottom fell out of the economy, I was very glad I'd been conservative.
I'm also very grateful for its location. I'm minutes away from the movie theater and my church. My work commute is 45 mins. door-to-door.
