Living Vicariously Through People Far Cooler Than Myself

Let's face it - my era of "cool" is over. 

I'm a 30-something mother of one who lives in the suburbs.  I'm usually in bed by 8:30 every night, I love nothing better than to read myself to sleep, and my big weekend plans usually involved catching up on laundry and sewing (if I'm lucky).  Fortunately, we've kept a few "cool" friends around over the years so that we can live vicariously through them from time to time.  They can tell us about the latest concert that they've been to, about their recent travels to Central America, and they can invite us over to see the houseboat that they recently bought (!) - which incidentally O thought was the coolest thing ever.

Okay, okay - I also thought it was the coolest thing ever.


Now if only being on the water didn't make me want to vomit...

  3. your husband looks super cool in his shades and O does too!! my assumption is that you have cool sunglasses. you don't have to live vicariously you just need cool shades!

    O is such a cutie pie.

  4. I love the photo of O in her shades! Perhaps you could have a vacation on a houseboat?? (With pills for your seasickness of course...)

  5. Well, at MY age, you're still pretty cool, Carolyn! And I don't just WANT to vomit on water, I DO! But I love the ocean and everything about it, including those little blocks of land we can visit!

  6. Well, even if YOU are not cool, your husband and kid look like rock stars. So you have that going for you. ; )

  8. I completely identify with you. I used to be so active; concerts, spontaneous trips, random excurions. Now I'm a busy mom of two and exciting to me is when the kids actually have a nap at the same time!

    Love your little corner of the world here. I hope to visit often.
