Mission Accomplished!

I stopped smoking 37 years ago, which I consider one of my major accomplishments since it’s so hard to do and means so much. Here are some of the things you’re glad you did.

The Reasons They’re Called ‘Grand’

I spent Christmas vacation in Hartford, CT, with my maternal Grandma Rosie and Grandpa Sam when I was about 13 years old.  Part of my homework assignment over the holidays was to color in an outline map of Europe, but I messed it up in minutes and became frantic.  Grandma Rosie and I walked for hours in the bitter cold, trying to find another map in every store in downtown Hartford. No luck!

By the time we returned home, Grandma had an aha moment, remembering that one of her cousins was an elementary school teacher and maybe he’d have a map.  Lo and behold, he did, and out went Grandma to retrieve it. I was on top of the world.When I was ready to start coloring in the countries, Grandpa Sam said maybe he should do it.  Using my little watercoloring kit, he painted each country a different color and wrote their names in block letters. It was a masterpiece! 

I saved the map for years and can still see it. I think my mother threw it out after I married and moved out of the house.  She wasn’t the sentimental type! 

I wasn’t always a darling granddaughter, but I’ll always remember that Grandma Rose would do anything for me. 

Here’s what you remember most about your grandparents when you were growing up.

Almost Half Of Us Can’t Help Being Jealous Of Other Women!

Only 25 percent of us say we love ourselves first, and almost 40 percent think our looks are the most important of all our personal traits. Things to ponder. But for now, here’s how 245 women answered our survey on What Kind of Woman Are You?

I Love You But I Wouldn’t Choose You Again

Hmmm. What would you say to a woman who admits she gives up an important part of herself to keep her relationship and says she’d choose a different partner if she had to do it all over again. We’d say: “Why?”

An exclusive FabOverFifty survey of 131 women 45+ revealed that 33 percent would indeed select someone else if they had a  do over, and 50 percent give up a piece of themselves to stay with their partners. But look at how many women tell their partners they love them EVERYDAY!
