Jodie Barringer Myers I'm a self-deprecating, Chardonnay-loving mom of two out-of-the-house wonderful daughters; wife of a chronically tardy, great guy; part-time freelance court reporter -- who loves to gripe, embrace, commiserate, celebrate and write about 'the second half.'

Why time flies

Why time flies

To some, me included, it’s a compelling mystery as to where the time goes. Especially while standing at the intersection of 50+ and EmptyNest-hood. I often asked myself: Is time moving faster, or am I moving slower? I really believe it’s a little of both. And I think I have finally figured it all...

It’s the little things

It’s the little things

There’s a little bench on a beautifully shaded street close to my office that often has a little “shrine” or homage displayed. Not big. Not flashy. Nothing blatant. For whom, I know not. Honoring what, I haven’t a clue. It may be a small bouquet of fresh-cut flowers, or a balloon, or a colorfully painted...

Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow             Fleetwood Mac was in town a couple of weeks ago. Did you go? Because Chuck and I did. And we had a wonderful evening. I mean, who wouldn’t love getting in touch with their inner-1976ish self while watching Stevie and Mick do their thing?   And so it...

My Daughter Got ‘Manti Teo’d’

My Daughter Got  ‘Manti  Teo’d’

While watching Katie Couric’s interview of Manti Te’o last Thursday,  I got deja vu,  goosebumps, and extremely irritated.  And after it was over, I took ownership of my acute stupidity. When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she had a fun, intriguing, ‘first-love’ relationship with a guy (I think) who lived a privileged...

I have FOMOphobia

As I was working out the other morning, perusing an article in I think it was an old Glamour magazine that was on the rack at the club, I learned that I have FOMOphobia. Yes, I have an affliction called Fear Of Missing Out. And I discovered that it doesn’t lie dormant, and it’s been festering...

Outta Bounds

Fairly recently, unwittingly and unknowingly, I crossed the line.  I stepped way out of bounds. What I thought was cute and fun was, in fact, not cute and fun. At all. My intent was absolutely benign and pure and innocent. What I did was spontaneous and,  I thought, oh-so-clever. But what matters most is that she...

Puppy Love

We lost our beloved, sweet, 14 1/2-year-old, perfectly-shaded yellow Lab, Mia, on Saturday, December 14. She was our fifth family member, who just happened to have been born with copious amounts of “hair” and four legs. She had not one mean bone in her body. She cried with us after our 18-year-old Sonny cat died five years...
