Press "Replay"

And invariably it’s a discussion of the same old issues, over and over and over again. Ad nauseum. When he starts his oft-repeated retorts, I’m quick to say, “Geez, just press the…


Another Aging Beauty

Look at all those lines and dents and chips and viagra order cracks. And think buy cheap oem software download of the stories “she” cialis online could tell. Encouraging evidence, once again, that it is possible to age with grace and beauty.


Face It! (The beard)

So if I were a pre-pubescent male, I would be ecstatic. I have been sporting a beard and mustache for about three years now. It started out as the quintessential peach fuzz.

1 1 0 !!

Chuck and I were invited to a fun little soiree last night. Our friends, Mike and Beth, were celebrating his 60th, her 50th, Valentine’s Day and Friendship. Such a great way to usher in the new week!

About Me

It's true! Despite playing defense virtually all my life against the onslaught of this sometimes-ugly aging process, it...has...arrived! I naively thought I would escape cellulite (the Cottage Cheese) and crow's feet (the Crepe Paper). But I didn't! And why didn't anyone tell me about this emotional roller-coaster that comes with being an Empty-Nester?! My name is Jodie Barringer Myers. I'm a 54-year-old Friday/chardonnay/ hydrangea-loving wife/mom/court reporter living in Sacramento (Gold River!), California. Writing is cathartic for me. And because I look to find humor and humility among the rubble that is my now very peri-menopausal self, I'm hopeful that you will laugh, cry, learn, enjoy and, most of all, relate to what I have to say. After all, we're all in this together, right?
