How old do you feel?

A few weeks ago, one of my coworkers asked me how old I was. She said she wanted to know because I seemed to have too much energy. I asked her to guess, and she said 28.



First of all, I thanked her, since I am actually in my mid-thirties. She seemed shocked and asked my secret. I explained that my son…

The face in the mirror

As I gazed in the mirror this morning I could only cringe.  New lines and wrinkles, new gray, new age spots....all this newness simply meant I was getting old.  I am not obsessed with my age of 56 but I do acknowledge that I have more days behind me than what I will ever see in front of me.  I wish I could see myself through the eyes of my grandchildren.  They don't see the wrinkles or age spots but rather someone whose eyes twinkle when they are around, someone who feels silly and…

Mom’s When Did You Transition Your Baby from the Bottle to a Sippy Cup?

When I took my son to his 9 month old well baby check up, his doctor told me that she wanted to make sure that he was off the bottle around his first birthday.  I really didn’t think this was going to be possible to wean him from the bottle by the time he was a year old but it was easier than I expected it to…

Book Review: The Mason Jar by James Russell Lingerfelt

The Mason Jar written by James Russell Lingerfelt is a coming of age love story that will stay with me for a very long time. The author’s writing style drew me in right away. I finished reading the book in one day.

The story read like a long beautiful poem with vivid descriptions that made me feel like I was there in person. The story chronicles the main character Finn's first relationship with a fellow student named Eden. Finn fell madly in love with Eden, but…

thirtysomething

I remember being 11 or 12 and watching TV and seeing a commercial for thirtysomething.  Remember that show?  It was on in the late eighties/early nineties.  I never watched it.  I was too young.  The only thing I remember is watching a commercial and thinking, What a dumb show.  Who would want to watch a show all about old people? 

Today I realized, those "old people" are my people.  I'm not sure when or how it happened, but those are my people.

A Thought on Happiness

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

Men Just Want Hot and It Kind of Sucks

I know so many 45-55 year old men who would give up both their pinkies fingers to be with a 25 year old woman. They would book a room in a heart beat cause that's the way guys are. For most men, youth is the hottest attribute and the most fleeting, once it's gone, it's soo gone.

When I look at 25 year old men I think, wow, he's go nice skin but...

The men on the other hand, do not care…

My Very Special Frist Center Adventure

In May, I contacted Emily Harper Beard at the Frist Center to plan my summer of “Genma’s Frist Center Adventures”. I started my conversation with an enthusiastic, “Hey, you need me, and here’s what I need you to do!” I rattled off a list of upcoming events that I wanted to host at the museum because I wanted to make sure it was the Frist Center’s “best year yet.” Never mind the crazy phone introduction, we would work through all of that later, I thought to myself. After what seemed an eternity… Continue

Random Act of Kindness

I came face to face with old age today. Not mine, but an elderly woman who was wandering in the middle of the road…a road with a speed limit of 50/mph. I was driving along, a bit over the speed limit, when I noticed something blue in the road. My first thought was it was a construction worker, but there was no road construction. My second… Continue

Confession: I lie about my age

In real life, I'm 23 years old.



Yes, I'm 23 and I'm a mother and I'm married and WHAT?



I know, I get it all. the. time.





"Wow you look so young to have a baby!"

"Yeah, I'm, um, 23."

"Oh. Yeah...well...you are young to have a baby."





"Oh my gosh you have a baby? You look like you're 18!"






And then comes the questions: Am I married? When did I get married? Why? Was it an accident? Are you working? Still… Continue
