Menopause

A Menopause Blogger Goes to BlogHer12

Thanks to my brilliant agent Erzsi Deak of Hen and Ink Literary Studio, who told me if I wanted to write a book about menopause, I needed an online presence.

Thanks to my blogging daughters Kath and Laura, who have provided hours of techno support.

Thanks to Estroven and the Good Sleep Challenge for sending me to BlogHer12.

Love New York!  On my first walk, I found this lovely lady. I think she’s going through menopause, and she’s smart enough to take her head off until she’s finished.

Next, I found this fun shop. I debated, but then decided carpe diem, seize yourself some mini pies!

The pies weren’t as delicious as the shop was darling, but it sure was fun picking them out.

Next, I debated getting Cliff a NYC tie, but he doesn’t always like me to pick out his clothes.  Still, I thought one might be nice for Laura’s upcoming wedding:

I was delighted that Lisa Winkler was in NYC with family. She was kind enough to come to the hotel to meet me. Blog friends already. Instant in-person friends:

Lisa and I had fancy drinks. Yum!

I said goodbye to Lisa and headed over to the conference expo hall. I met Valerie at the Land O’Lakes booth. She reads Kath and Laura’s blog AND her mom reads mine!  Valerie’s mom, you’ve raised a lovely daughter.

Headed back out to the Hilton, the conference hotel, to check out the parties. (We’re all staying at the Shertaon.)  We menopausal types need to show the younger bloggers that we know how to party.
