For years, David's work schedule had him out of the house at sunrise, returning way past sundown. Now he's home with me 24/7, and as a couple, we have much to relearn about each other in that sudden togetherness. Apparently, I talk out loud to myself... a lot.
Life in the Boomer Lane has been so busy shoveling snow, losing gloves and stocking up on milk, toilet paper, and the makings of chocolate chip cookies, that she has failed to notice that Spring has started. Spring is the season in which all of LBL's senses undergo their yearly reawakening, and she is once again conscious that her body does not fit into any swimsuit that has been made for humans to actually wear.
I am a proud member of the sandwich generation. Sociologist Dorothy A. Miller coined the term in 1981 to classify people who care for their aging parent(s) while helping to support their own children.
Of all the profiles that I came across while compiling information for this series on boomer and reinvention, Patrice Fike's was the most unique.
Despite dramatic changes in job searching due to today's technology, one thing remains the same: people get people jobs! Studies remain fairly consistent showing that a minimum of 75 percent of positions is obtained by way of personal referral.
I have spent this last year focusing on myself in a series I wrote about turning 50. But, I got carried away and became a little too self-absorbed. I made a mistake. A huge mistake.

Mr. Rogers, who would have turned 95 today, understood the magic of connecting generations. Linking the young and old benefits both generations and unifies our communities.
When I left a career in academia to pursue humor writing, there were plenty of outspoken and silent skeptics questioning my motives. Why would a 40-something woman with a Ph.D. (and a clinical psychologist at that) walk away from a steady paycheck? What kind of woman, after years of training and building a résumé in science, would shift gears and pursue a future in comedy? The answers were simple.
Having run out of new fun ice cream flavors, LBL would now like to resurrect Guerrilla Aging as part of her Life in the Boomer Lane blog. Here is what LBL wrote as an intro to the other blog.
Instead of scurrying about in the Fall to prepare for the onslaught of Old Man Winter, we open a bottle of wine and sit on the terrace until it passes. Sometimes we even share a big bowl of strawberries and cream.
Opening a hit restaurant has got to be one of our most enduring reinvention fantasies. Paul Giannone is one notable boomer who has actually done it. His Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York opened in 2010, and has gone on to be one of the top-reviewed and most beloved new pizzerias in the New York area.
If you are a Type-A boomer girl like me you will enjoy and identify with Meg, who at sixty-something, is fun, free-spirited and quite impulsive. She also looks amazing in her Parisian black lace dress.
We're writing you as members of two different generations -- Boomer and Millennial -- to ask you for an on-air correction to your recent segment on 'The Cycle' focused on millennial and earned benefit programs.
Defining success in life should include more than just the accumulation of money and power. How can an increased focus on your health and wellbeing th...
Alzheimer's is a formidable foe. But our research is leading to a better understanding of Alzheimer's and ultimately, to protocols to add longevity to brain performance in brain disease, health or injury. And that is news worth making noise about.
