    Thanks for the link to the little child with the dog – super cute, and just what I needed! And the Not Writing was great fun too.

    My husband made me watch the Wheel of Fortune clip the other day. What started with an eye roll on my part (I was in a mood) ended with tears of laughter and, yes, me screaming at the screen (mood over).

    Here to say I received my adidas red sweatshirt with the orange heart late yesterday afternoon (finally). I LOVE IT!!! If you want a 100% cotton heavy duty sweatshirt that is adorable––order one! And do note it runs large. Granted I am not a big person, but the xs is long enough to cover my rear end––in other words, it is not in any way cropped (hallelujah). As I said the other day this week’s podcast is oh-so-good. Looking forward to spending time with these links! And as a by-the-way Kim and Jenn were discussing “what to watch”––when Russia invaded Ukraine I needed something to help lift my spirits so I rewatched the first season of Bridgerton. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it the second time around––I found it funnier and was much more appreciative of all the little nuances––particularly how often the women really control situations––that I was on the first viewing.

    Naturally, I thought of Jennifer Romolini and her frustrations with her own writing when I was reading Kimberly Harrington’s piece. Also, Jenn girl, get the Gucci loafers.
