This week’s post makes last week’s post a two parter! A sequal of sorts. Think "Blog Post 2 -Electric Boogaloo"!
Remember I wrote about all of the things I think on my way to work after dropping off the kids? I specifically talked about all the things I hope I didn't forget. Well, that Monday afternoon my son came home commando. Yup, swinging in the wind. All because I forgot to pack extra underwear for him. For those of you who don't have kids, the early stages of potty training require a spare 13 - 14 pairs of underpants. Anyway, lesson learned.
My kids also went to their grandparent’s house this weekend so the husband and I could get stuff done that required uninterrupted attention for more than 2 minutes. Plus we enjoyed hot meals and not needing to wipe someone else's face every two seconds. It was pure bliss but I miss those little monkeys running around talking to imaginary friends and asking me when it was going to be time to have snack. Keep in mind they usually ask three to five minutes after we have finished breakfast. they will continue to ask until I finally do feed them or distract them with shiny objects and laser pointers. Just kidding they are not cats...they are a lot more fun!
So this afternoon I am off to pick them up because I have missed them. I hope they come home wearing underpants….

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.
