We have lived over 1 billion 892 million 160 thousand seconds and are now wading through our sixth decade. We know we’re not alone in walking through midlife into our senior years (cough, cough, cough) wondering, “are we really women over 60??” and…


“When do we start to FEEL old!?” 



No woman considers EVERYTHING gained through the passage of time to be positive. Here is where you can join us in conversations about ways we’re accepting those things we cannot change (and maybe bitching about it, a little) – and changing those things we can…   We know we’re not alone!  Please join us.

Our Most Important Relationship

What is your closest relationship? You might say your spouse or partner. You might also say your friend from school or maybe even your child. But, if we’re honest– we might actually admit that our REAL ‘can’t live without’ person, our most important relationship is with… our hairstylist. [...]

Barb Here I live on a boat, why would I have to De-Clutter? Back in 2002, we had a major de-clutter project when we sold our home and most of our stuff to move on the boat. I was so freaking smug. “Oh, getting rid of things was easy,” I said. I lied. [...]

Mardi Gras and Caribbean Carnivals

Barb Here The Divas were aghast when Lynnelle discovered that Mardi Gras in the States originated in Mobile, not New Orleans. That's the sum total of our actual knowledge and experience with Mardi Gras, but if you understand the synergy between Mardi Gras and Caribbean Carnivals, we have a bit of street-cred. [...]


Capsule Wardrobe – Revisited

Back in September, last year, we wrote a post that was the beginning of my quest to simplify and downsize my closet. That quest resulted in 3 additional posts and, while I made good progress, I didn’t officially “get rid” of any clothing. Instead of actually donating or tossing anything at the time, I put the excess items off to the side pending … what… a change of h [...]


Curb Your Inner Snark. Or Not?

Should you curb your inner snark? Or Not? Barb Here Urban Dictionary says that it’s a combination of “snide” and “remark”, and it may be. Merriam Webster says it was first used in 1999, and that may be when its modern usage first occurred. The word first appeared in a poem by Lewis Carroll, called The Hunting of the Snark. In that poem, the snark is described as cre [...]
