How to Love a Baby Boomer Diva Part II

Give Her Something to Smile About

Come up with creative ways to do something different for your baby boomer diva everyday. Let her know you’re thinking about her throughout the day with an email or a phone call (leave a message if she doesn’t answer). She will appreciate the fact that you took time out of your busy day to think of her.

Just because you aren’t together all the time doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do things to let her know how much you care for her. Remember, intimacy has to leave the bedroom sometimes in order to be totally effective. What does that mean? It means you can do other things to connect with your baby boomer diva emotionally:

1) Why not send her flowers as a token of the love you feel for her along with a “love note.”

2) Take a day off from work and be her “maid for a day” where you handle all of the household chores including her “personal needs.”

3) Take her out for a night on the town and treat it as a first date.

4) Send her flowers at work just because . (even if she’s a work-at-home-mom). It doesn’t have to be connected to a special day. Just let her know you love her and want her to know it.

5) Run her bath water complete with candles and then have a nice, warm towel waiting for her when she gets out of the tub. (A personal favorite of mine.)

Since I have no significant other in my life right now (or should I count my Yorkiepoo, Pixel?) I shall do these things for myself occasionally.

I can buy myself a lovely bouquet for my table.
I will take a day off from work and hire a maid to make my bed and wash my dishes.
I will take myself out on the town or maybe just a picnic in the red rocks of Sedona.
I will remember to light a nice aroma therapy candle for my next bath!
Great post, Beverly.
I'm printing it out for my hubby ASAP!!!

Loved this Bev! I think the baby boomer men are more in touch with 'what women want' these days.. alot of that probably has to do with their baby boomer partners being more open! We are not afraid to speak our minds, something other women still shy away from!

Love to love the love of your life!

Millennials Want Their Own Day

In case you haven't heard the news, there's a online petition encouraging the man they call the President of the U.S. to establish a National Millennials Day.

Self-proclaimed millennial leaders James Goodnow and Ryan Avery want to establish June 19 as a day for Generation Y to dispel the FAKE NEWS being spread about them.  They say they simply want to show those of us who have labeled them as "entitled" selfish" lazy" "narcissistic" (and other choice adjectives) that they can be important contributors to society.  Their "vision is to make National Millennials Day a day of service--a day when they reach out and help others in their communities.

 According to their website, millennialsday.org, organizers say "With National Millennials Day, we want to turn the stereotypes inside--out.  To show that we're more GENERATION WE than Generation ME. To transform ideals into actions.  To inspire hope for the future.  To celebrate the most open…

The Tragedy and Illusion of Facebook

"Things aren't always the way they appear."  No truer words could be spoken following the tragic death of Karen Smith in San Bernardino, CA this week.  She was murdered on her job---in a classroom where she was teaching young students.

What intrigued me about this story was the fact that she and her husband killer, Cedric Anderson were black baby boomers around the same age as my husband and myself.  I was particularly interested in the posts he made on Facebook.  By all accounts, he posted regularly on Facebook about the so-called love and admiration he had for his wife.  He created an image that was clearly contrary to the murderous behavior he demonstrated when he walked into her classroom and killed her.

In a February 27th post, he posted a selfie video and said:  "I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson!"

March 11 post, he said: "My wife Karen Smith-Anderson is an Angel!!!"

March 12: He posted a youtube song by Sade titled By Your Side and said:…

This Survey Stinks for Baby Boomers

The majority of baby boomers do not wash their underwear enough!  That's what an online survey by Mulberry Cleaners revealed recently.  The results were published in Reader's Digest.

I have to admit I was very surprised to read the results, which indicated 16 percent of middle-aged folks reported NEVER washing their underwear.  Now, 16 percent may not sound like a large number but that's still 16 percent too many, in comparison to 85 percent of millennials who said they toss their undergarments in the laundry after one or two wears.  Only 10.3 percent of millennial women said they never washed theirs, which might make sense if these young women had parents who were enablers and never taught them to do much of anything, especially how to wash clothes.

When it comes to washing bed sheets, 43 percent of women said they wash them every week, compared to seven percent of men who said they had washed their sheets only once in six months.  But even worse than that is the fact th…
