Beyond Babedom

We're (way) over 40. Deal with it.

Dream Lover

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Picture this: I’m somewhere, in a situation with a really sexy guy and I am so turned on that I know what’s coming. But then… The guilt clicks in. Oh did I mention? This is a dream.  Yes, a dream. So, tell me. Why is it that I can’t enjoy a good, honest to God sexy dream without feeling guilty?

Calendar Girl

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

I’ve got an iPhone and I use it to keep track of all the stuff I want to remember – grocery lists, appointments, deadlines. Probably most people have some sort of gadget – or maybe even  DayTimer (time machine alert!) so they don’t miss things.
So, tell me: if I can’t memorize my own schedule, why the hell does Gary expect me to remember his? (more…)

Mr. Not So Right

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Yeah, we’ve all known some; those Mr. Not So Rights who make our lives miserable. But that’s not the point of this post. My goal is to make you all think about when we can’t all get Mr. Right, should we really fight to get Mr. Not So Right?  How do these relationships usually end up? They end – down.  Which is to say, not in a good way. Because “winning” anything is a really bad way to start a relationship. (more…)

No Experience Needed

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Here’s the scenario: a couple meets, dates, gets married, has babies (more or less in that order). The babies need to be fed, changed, put to bed, bathed (probably not in that order). In most cases – not all, but most – the woman ends up with the majority of these jobs. Sure, some are “stay-at-home” moms, but most aren’t. Who can afford the luxury of one income?

So, here’s the deal: she works, he works, she does the baby stuff (and probably most of the housework, grocery shopping laundry. . . but that’s another post). And every once in a while, he takes over: mommy gets a night out. And how does she describe this situation? My husband is babysitting tonight. Are you kidding? Babysitting? (more…)

Nothing’s Perfect

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Ever think that if only blah blah blah, your life would be perfect? Well, get over it. It won’t be and it never will be. No, I’m not a pessimist; I’m actually one of the most optimistic people you’ll ever meet (which sometimes drives Gary crazy, but that’s another story). I just know – being a woman over 40 (or so. . . ) – that nothing is perfect: not a job, not a house, not a husband. And if you spend your life trying to find perfect, you’ll be sorely disappointed.
