First Cool Thing
You may have figured out by now that my most beloved mother lives in Florida… which suggests warm weather, pools…
POOLS? You’re not gettin’ me in some skimpy little string-bottomed, fat-revealing piece of Lycra!
That was me, for quite a long time. But having children in the family changes all rules, so I took a chance, and I AM THRILLED.
I LOOK GOOD IN THIS!
Trust me. Take your measurements, be patient, and TRY THESE. I was so happy… There’s a pool in my building! And a HOT TUB! And I can USE THEM BOTH!!!!!
excuse me, I’m shouting because I’m happy; it’s a great reason to shout….
Yes, wrestling your upper torso into the top is a project, because of the built-in bra. But it’s worth the effort.
Second Cool Thing
If you’re like me, and you love to travel, and you’re always trying to remain disciplined and focused so that you can save money for your adventures, how about this?
I’m wearing it every day. When I reach into my bag for my wallet, or when I’m sitting at my desk and reach for my credit card, it’s RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
A reminder. Maybe even an admonition. A totem that helps me focus on what I really want.
How nice is that?
love love love,
p.s. Oh yes, the question! Have any of you ever flown the Air Lingus really dirt cheap fares? We’re flying from Chicago to Paris next month (my THIRD attempt to get to Paris this autumn/winter) and we are profoundly unclear on how much (or little) we can carry on. I know that we have to pay dearly to check bags, but we might manage with carry-on.
