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.
10. What are your bad habits? I'm a slob and a packrat. Because of the burgeoning bug problem, I haven't been able to donate my stuff when I part with it. I've had to throw it away. It's very hard for me. For once I arrive home, I hate doing work of any kind, and housework is by its very name "work." And because I hate waste. Throwing away a bag of t-shirts that were still wearable caused me nearly physical pain. And I have very low standards. As long as no one sees how I live, I truly don't care.
11. What do you think is something
worth dying for? To save something smaller and more vulnerable. Though I must admit this was a hard one to answer. Nothing came instantly to mind.
12. What would you say is your
biggest fear in general? Air travel! I'm very proud that I made it to and from Muskegon this past weekend without the assistance of Xanax.
