'Lest you think I am ignoring what's going on back East due to my last seemingly random post (which I had pre-scheduled a few days ago), I am keeping tabs on the situation in my obsessive-compulsive-Weather-Channel-addict way. Fortunately, my friends in NY are safe and with power, communicating via email or Facebook. Millions of others are not so lucky. Thoughts and prayers for everyone on the East Coast for progress on the long journey back to normal. The bright side for me - and so many others - has been this woman, the interpreter with something extra:

|Butter micro-suede window seat cushion, new 2" blinds, son's groovy track lights|

I've spent the last six years preaching the 'going gray' gospel, and I remain faithful, steadfast and true. I am - 98% of the time, at least - happy with the snow on my rooftop and the decision I made to quit dyeing when I hit 50. But, I must admit, when I saw this shot of myself, surrounded by my sorority sisters at last weekend's extremely fun and exhausting reunion, I said to myself, "Who the hell is that old lady in the back?!" Sigh. At what age, if ever, do we achieve total, 100% comfort with our looks? God, it was fun, though.
