The Cool Mom

I made a new friend in my beading class.

The other day, she told me, "You're a cool mama, aren't you?"

I flushed with apparent pleasure. "Sure am, babe," I answered her coolly, with a laugh.

"I thought most women would become, like, aunties, after they have children. But you're really very cool. You don't seem like a Mom," she enthused. "You're cool! I never would've guessed!"

She had no idea how she was inflating my ego. It was threatening to burst out from the back of my eyes.

"Definitely, babe. I'm a cool mama. Thank you." 

And I'd like to think that someday, my little girl will think I'm a cool mama too.

What Tarot card are you?

This was on EC's blog today- so I thought: What the heck, I have nothing better to do anyway...

You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

La di da

My friend, EC told me today that I am really bad at maintaining my blog. "Why don't you ever update it?" he asked me. D-uh: it's because I only update my other blog, the one that at least generates some form of income for me. And my life isn't all that exciting, so I want to blog about exciting stuff. But even if I don't, sometimes when I feel like it, I blog about whatever comes to my mind...

Oh- hunger alert.... I practically starved myself yesterday- again (for the millionth time), I am on a diet. I always say, "This time it's for real!" Yeah. The "this time is for real" usually lasts 2 weeks before I run out of steam or willpower and then give in to a large serving of spaghetti aglio olio: I am so weak in the knees for pasta, I LOVE pasta....!!!!!

Anyway, so I'm on a diet again- my BFF looks hot as hell these days (not that she didn't before- she always was hot- but she looks even hotter now!) because she's been going to the gym regularly, and is on her way to owning a pre-pregnancy Britney Spears body. As her BFF, I am obliged to attempt to look as good as her- may take a while, though when one looks a little like Randy Jackson pre-gastric bypass surgery. Since I have no money to invest in a personal trainer, or gastric bypass surgery, or Marie France Bodyline, I have to lose weight the old-fashioned way. 

I hate exercise- it is the bane of my existence. Anyway, I've been too lazy to work out in the gym, so I've signed up for a tap dance class with my husband. The first class is tonight. I hope I won't fall flat on my face. I hope the dance studio doesn't have mirrors plastered all over- I HATE to look at myself attempting to dance, or doing that sorry thing I call a dance and other people call spasms.

Anyway, I'll attempt to make more serious efforts in trying to keep this blog alive. Sigh. Maybe I should post an entry about every single thing that comes into my head.....
