One Interesting Thing. Since Sloane was born, I feel the aging has really taken hold.  So this article from Gloria on aging and no longer recognizing yourself in the mirror really hit home.  Also, on the topic of aging, Don Lemon can f**k himself.

Last night, I cleaned for 10 minutes, did leg lifts and sit ups for five minutes, and read for 10 minutes. It wasn’t very long in total, but it felt worth it.  Something is better than nothing.

    Preach about Don Lemon. What a pompous ass he is. While I understand CNN’s leadership wanting to give people space to take responsibility and grow, we know this won’t be the last dumbass, sexist remark Lemon will make, nor was it the first – it was just the first on air. Next time, he needs to be let go.

    I don’t really watch CNN, so I don’t know how apparent this is in the rest of his work, but Don Lemon’s insistence that Google says it, so it’s true, really made me wonder why anyone trusts anything he says. That’s his fact-checking? He’s supposed to be a journalist?

      Also, as a professional who said something really out of line, you’d think he’d be able to recognize that from his colleague’s reactions and think to maybe not try to justify it with, “I heard it on the internet so it must be true,” level bullshit.

    I wish those Athleta pants you listed for the travel outfit were a bit longer. Do you have any suggestions for something a bit longer but similar?

      Dumb question – even the Tall size is too short for you?

      I don’t shop at big box stores anymore but the varying inseams is a very nice perk.
