RePost: September is a Theme Month | Houw would you describe yourself in five words?

In need of a break.

That was what hit me this morning when this popped up in my browser. Lately in life I’ve been settling. You know. Post marriage, new house, all that stuff. I finally have hit a regular stride at work. I have found the cozy nooks and crannies in my house. I have moved closets and drawers and stuff around much to Sir LAA’s dismay I think. Poor guy only “thinks” he knows where the strainer went.

That said, September is going to be “Settling In” month. Getting ready for the holidays is stressful enough at times. This month is hitting those resolutions I made, and being productive. Life changes going on here people. Watch it happen.


“We have a game we play when we’re waiting for tables in restaurants, where you have to write the five things that describe yourself on a piece of paper. When I was [in my twenties], I would have put: ambitious, Wellesley graduate, daughter, Democrat, single. Ten years later not one of those five things turned up on my list. I was: journalist, feminist, New Yorker, divorced, funny. Today not one of those five things turns up in my list: writer, director, mother, sister, happy.”
