It appears that Ali has caught a touch of my micromanaging disease.

Just last week – while we were in Los Angeles – my husband so kindly delineated how I needed to “pull into that driveway, reverse, and then go straight” in order to turn the car around.

He even used hand gestures and I’m sure that if he’d had a piece of paper he would have drawn a detailed diagram.

His instructions were quite welcome because I haven’t really been operating a vehicle for the last 24 years, I’ve only been pretending.


At Maya’s LA birthday lunch…where she wore purple running shoes with her pink dress.

In other news, Maya’s Spring Break is finally coming to a close (thank God for that).

Also, I bought a new pair of New Balance shoes in navy blue (yes, I really did purchase something that isn’t black), and resurrected my beloved Target hat from the depths of my closet (see below picture) now that temperatures are far more reasonable.


Visiting with Nadia…always a highlight of visiting LA.

The Whole Foods in Union Square finally grew a brain and created an Express Lane during the high peak lunch hour (now I only have to wait an average of 15 minutes in line to buy my lunch, instead of the usual 18 minutes. I am beside myself with happiness.).

Oh, and I burned a batch of homemade crackers (I ate them anyway, because I cannot waste food).


In LA where I decided to single-handedly bring back the super stylish side ponytail to minimize frizz.

There isn’t much else going on but Ali and Maya are due to fly back to NYC tonight so I’m sure I’ll have more sarcasm to share shortly.

    Oh my gosh, can not wait for the school break to be over! Every time we come home from work, the kids have trashed the house. Clearly we need to do some major work on getting them to clean up after themselves!

    If I had been there, I would have helped you trash those burned crackers, because you should love what you eat. Just last night, I helped my mom dispose of a bottle of hand soap that she hated but was hanging onto because it had been a gift. 🙂

      I can somehow give away anything I’m not using but if I can’t find someone to take food I get really anxious! I hate throwing it away (unless it’s bad, and sometimes even then…).

    Stunning ladies (2nd Picture). What’s the secret?

      The secret (for me at least) is a hat. It covers the gray hair…it covers the forehead wrinkles. 🙂

    I think purple sneakers and a pink dress would be a good look. I will try that ASAP.

    My hair gets frizzy by the beach in Cali. It sucks, but there are beaches everywhere and I love the beach. Your hair looks gorgeous at Maya’s birthday party.

      My hair is at its worst at the beach! Totally get it.
