I am hoping this is not too much information but can we talk about tampons for a minute? I am absolutely beside myself that Tampax has changed their packaging.
I associate purple wrappers with lite, green with super and orange with super plus. If they are now ALL WRAPPED IN THE SAME PURPLE color with a small sticker closure dictating which is which, I have to put much more effort into my selection because getting it wrong (as in, choosing lite instead of super plus) is life altering.
And throwing me a token letter S or L on the label doesn’t work when the rest of the tampon packaging is the same! I hardly wear my glasses in the bathroom and the letter doesn’t glow in the dark to help me see at night.
Do I not have enough to think and worry about? Do you know what happens to someone like me who by mistake uses a lite tampon instead of a super plus?
In other news, I am removing the time hop feature in my facebook account.
While there are plenty of funny moments in my facebook past, there are also some things I do not need to relive.
Isn’t the trending New Year’s goal to live in the moment anyway?
I do not need to relive the boyfriend from six years ago who later broke my heart. The one I ran into by the cauliflower in Fairway, by the way.
I most certainly don’t need to relive seven years ago, when I was selling my son’s Pottery Barn train table as I slowly began to sell the contents of my home because of my divorce.
While I am moved on from that time period of my life, it was still my life. My divorce happened and I didn’t want it to happen. I didn’t want to move, I didn’t want to sell furniture, I didn’t want any of the things that happened to us back then.
One triggered memory leads to other memories that I don’t wish to dig up, especially first thing in the morning as I scroll through my facebook newsfeed.
The other morning though when I saw this particular time hop about the train table, I had to remind myself that had I not moved, not only would I not have my favorite running path but I never would have met Meaghan.
#TBT summer 2011 when we actually had every other weekend to ourselves and stayed out way past my bedtime covering Manhattan, Long Beach and Fire Island, sometimes all within one 24 hour period.
Not only is Meaghan one of my best friends and next door neighbor, she is like the other half of my household. We are both divorced moms (our kids are a year apart and in the same middle school) and I do not know what I would do without her.
My son even knows that if there’s an emergency and you think you need to call police, you may want to call Meaghan first. I mean, if my doorbell rings at night, I call to tell her to look outside rather than actually open the door.
Do you freak when the doorbell rings at unexpected times? It’s sort of like when my home phone rings. Who the heck is calling me on my home phone?
Do people still have home phones or am I the only one?
I also wonder if I am the only one using the CD Player in the car. I haven’t ever used the player in this particular car before this week actually. Even though I have been moving my case of CD’s from car to car ever since like 1996, I haven’t used a CD player in years – until the other day.
My son suddenly noticed we had one so I decided to whip out the case of CD’s sitting in my trunk and we have been having a singing blast ever since.
I was cool for a minute too when I took out my Beastie Boys CD from high school and knew every word to Ill Communication 🙂TOL - Tampax & Time Hop #thinkingoutloud #tampax #timehop #divorce Click To Tweet
