Rock On!

Posted by Pam Bassuk on Wednesday, May 23, 2012,

Last night I fulfilled a fantasy I didn’t even know I had.  I sang backup vocals in a band.  Yes, at 46, I went to a band rehearsal, hopped up on stage, and sang my little heart out.  I even played guitar.  Most people get this kind of thing out of their system in their teens.  What can I say? I’m a late bloomer.  It’s the most fun I’ve had in long a time. I think it’s something everyone should do once, if not before you hit forty, then at least after.

I can’t claim it was a roc...

Half Empty or Half Full?

Posted by Pam Bassuk on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, In : Chuckles 
I'm not sure if this means I'm overly optimistic, or overly pessimistic.  Today, I decided to surprise my husband by taking in the trash cans.  After I wheeled our empty garbage bin in from the street, I went back out to the street to get the recycle bin.  I checked under the recycle bin's lid and noticed it was half-empty.  For some odd reason, I took that as a good sign and promptly dragged it down the driveway towards the side of our house.  When I got to the side door, I remembered that h...

The Seeds of Life

Posted by Pam Bassuk on Friday, May 4, 2012, In : Motherhood 
            I’m not sure when I learned that a woman is born with all of her eggs.  It might have been when I was in seventh grade, being tortured by my state-mandated health education class.  It could have been when I was in my early twenties, hanging out with friends at college, trading odd facts and little-known tidbits.  Or maybe it was when I was in my mid-thirties, when my friends and I started worrying about our aging eggs and whether or not we could have children.  

In my late thir...

On Maturity

I've finally learned to live in the moment.  The down side is, I'm so focused on the moment, I never know what day it is.

The New Ipad

Posted by Pam Bassuk on Friday, May 4, 2012, In : Married Life 
My husband says I’m not responsible enough to use his ipad at night.  He says I fall asleep while reading and he doesn’t want me to roll over and break it.  (Note to reader:  He’s more protective of his ipad than he is of me.) 

I’ve never believed my husband’s hogwash about me falling asleep while reading it.  I know he’s just trying to get his piggy little fingers on his own ipad. 

But I learned something last night.  I learned that those ipads are heavier than you think.  I lear...

Ahhh

"We met in 1993.  I remember because Jurassic Park came out in 1993 and I'll never forget when that movie came out." 
-- My Husband  (I was sort of hoping he'd say, I remember that Jurassic Park came out in 1993, because I'll never forget the year we met.)
