Lands End has fabulous rash guards in a variety of prints and colors. You can be sure to find one to match your favorite bathing suit. They are pretty enough to wear to brunch après swimming also. Do you wear sun protective clothing?

Thanks for all of your sweet comments the other day. I am happy to report that I am almost back to my old self. I am doing a lot better.
It feels good to feel normal again. I am actually looking forward to the upcoming weekend and plan on stepping out a bit.

I am posting this because I like to be honest with my readers. I have shared the good, bad and ugly. As you know from reading my last posts I have been having a hard time. I am normally up early, determined and focused. I could feel myself unraveling. It was scary. I contacted my Dr and he suggested Zoloft and I feel so much better-almost like my old self. If you need help don't be ashamed to ask for it. We all need a boost now and then.

The past few weeks have given me time to soul search and I realize that I need to find some activities. I have been lonely-I am not sure why- I have lots of friends but summer seems to be harder than winter. The days are long and I miss my Mom . Summer was her season. I think that all of the events of the past fifteen months have caught up with me and now it is time to climb back up.
Wish me luck on the climb.

This post has been on my mind for awhile now.. I am hoping that putting my thoughts down on paper will ease the pain.
I have not hid the fact from you that I was not the favorite growing up. I was not the better student and quite honestly far from the child who made my Mom or Dad proudest. I did not know how to play the game and make my parents happy. My Brother was the polar opposite. He was smart and on my Mom's book could do no wrong. It was hard for me and as soon as the opportunity arose I took off for what I hoped would be greener pastures.
My brother went to Princeton and my parents relished in that(even though they both graduated from Ivy League schools). They flaunted it amongst friends and family whenever they got the chance. I was made to feel like less of a person.
A friend of the family reminded me of this the other night and it hurts all over. Although now I wished that I had not gone away seeking greener pastures and had spent that time with the woman I grew to adore-Mom

www.tieks.com . They are mail order only but have great customer service.
I cannot wear a bra for several months. Skinny tees at www.skinnytees.com are my go to tank top. I purchased them in several colors and they are fabulous.
Health issues can present many challenges and these two products have really saved me.

I'm finally feeling better. Now it's back to weight loss. I know that I will feel so much better mentally if I can get thinner. Weight has been a real struggle for me my whole life. I intend to conquer it once and for all.
It's been a busy weekend and I was able to get out easily for the first weekend since my shingles and surgery.

This is my new motto. Being home lot during the past five weeks has me going back to the past a lot. Whether it be thru photos, memories or letters it's been an emotional roller coaster.
As close as Mom and I were during the past two decades we had some bad times too. Hopefully one day I will find the strength to share those times with you. They were painful and selfish on both of our parts. I was a selfish person and I regret it.

I am blessed in so many ways-I just want to be healed and move on with my life. However, I know that this too shall pass.

It's been a rough year and three months. Mom died, I got robbed, I moved , I had heart surgery and now I have shingles.
After each of these events many people said to me that everything happens for a reason. At first that phrase angered me inside but now I embrace it. Everything that happened made me stronger and gave me more impetus to go on.
I still question many things. I do believe that this past year was payback for some of the not so nice behavior I displayed earlier in my life.

Nordstrom has been a wonderful resource. The staff in the lingerie department suggested wearing Josie Tank tops and they have been a godsend. Lilly has also been a wonderful resource. The Elsa top with a tank top underneath looks great for work.
Life's challenges teach us many lessons. I am a grateful lady.

Happy Father's Day to everyone.
My Dad has been gone for so long. He died in 1986. However I do remember our last Father's Day together.
