Last week I shared our morning routine. This week I thought I would share the top 5 things that go through my head after I drop the kids off at their respective "someone else watch them and I will pay you places".
1. Did I leave the oven on? Wait. Did I ever turn the oven on? I don't think so. What did L have for breakfast - did it require an oven? Did I even feed her breakfast? Yes, this is one continuous thought.
2. Was everyone wearing pants?
3. Did I lower the heat / turn on the air conditioner? This simple mistake will effect our entire evening. Stressful.
4. Did I pack (pick any one of these): lunch, underpants, homework, message folder, sneakers for gym, blankie for nap, extra pants, winter hat, boots, snow pants, bathing suit, library book, pencil, eyeglasses....
5. Did I put on shoes? Seriously. When L was about 5 months old I showed up at work in my slippers. I was too tired to go home and change into real shoes so I just stayed at my desk most of the day so no one would see my feet. There was also a day where I completely forgot to put on make-up. I'm talking total naked face. Yikes.
This is all going through my head while "Let It Go" blares from the car radio...and there are no children in the car! What goes through your head on the way to work?

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
