I started 2014 at the Tournament of Roses Parade followed by an MSU win at the Rose Bowl, and the rest of the year followed the theme – everything came up roses. Well, at least it seemed that way.
- Participated in the Erma Bombeck Writing Workshop and returned home vowing never to write about menopause. (A common theme I discovered).
- Traveled to the southwest US and visited the national parks in Arizona and Utah; Traveled throughout North Carolina with stops in Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virgina; Traveled to the furthest reaches of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Lots of great writing material along the routes.
- Decided to share my outermost thoughts and feelings and started a blog.
- Attended the Green Bay Packer/ Detroit Lions game at Lambeau Field on December 28, a pilgrimage of sorts for anyone who grew up in Wisconsin
- Joined a church after a long, winding spiritual journey; seeking redemption for thinking that a visit to a football stadium is a religious experience.
- A new wait control plan, as in “wait, I’ll take more turnip leek soup” instead of “wait, I’ll have seconds on those mashed potatoes”
- A better memory, or at the very least, to always remember where I’ve placed my glasses.
- A new hair style to replace my 70’s wedge, which was replaced by my 60’s shag, which made me feel like an aging member of a British boy band. Geri, my hair stylist has her work cut out for her.
- An end to sagging body parts. Now that I have an eyelid that wakes up an hour after the rest of my face, I can no longer camouflage my issues with clothes. Makeup nor adhesive tape works to conceal the sleepy eyelid.
- Jeans that don’t feature blinged out back pockets, especially on jeans in, ahem , my size. The day the bedazzler fell in bed with the denim king was a bad, bad day. I was so happy when we got through the embroidered rose on the back pocket trend, and now this.
