We have all heard that 50 is the new 30. But with my half century birthday only two months away I am realizing that in reality 49 is the new 16!

Every morning, before I pack a lunch or help get a kid out the door I take a few moments just for me. It might look like I'm just putting on some makeup, but it's really much more. As always thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and the crazy appliance! 
Life in the Mirror: Every morning I partake in a ritual that helps me face my day with a little peace. And a little lipstick.

I’d be lying if I told you that I’ve never wanted to pack up my belongings and head for the hills...

When I had Tom I was thrilled to be able to be home with him, but I was also profoundly lonely. I needed friends, fast. I was so lucky to not only find them but to also find my "union." These women made being a mom not only a bit easier, they made it a lot more fun!! As always I thank you for your ongoing support of me and the crazed dishwasher.

This week I have come to the conclusion that as my kids have gotten older my mommy super powers aren't what they once were. As always, thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and my dishwasher!!

I'm up on Scary Mommy today sharing about the realization I recently had about the state of my Mommy Super Powers! 
Today I had a very hard realization, my mommy super powers, the tools I have used to banish monsters under the bed, are becoming much less powerful.

It was almost five years ago when I turned a corner of my bedroom into my office and started to write. Though it may not be much, it has become the one place in my house that is all mine and I love it. As always thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and the crazed appliance. 
My Office and Me: As I sit in my office, which in reality is just a corner of the bedroom I share with my husband, I feel at home and at peace.

Better After 50 is running the letter I wrote to my son Tom last year about our feelings about teenage drinking. This letter has been shared on numerous publications, websites and newsletters. So happy to have it on Better After 50 today! xo
I never want my son to say that I wasn't clear about my feelings -- so I'm writing them out here, for all to see.

Joe and I have been happily married for 22 years. But there have been times, 3 to be exact, when there was someone else. His name was Phil, and "he" was my pregnancy pillow. As always thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and the crazed appliance!

I did not learn to drive till I was 34 and a new mom. How can it be possible that the baby that forced me to face my fear is now getting ready to drive himself? As always thank you so much for always supporting me and the Dishwasher!

Yes, my dishwasher is really possessed!
Introduction

I am a mom to three, wife to one and the owner of a possessed appliance who still finds it hard to believe that the woman who didn’t even have an email address till the fall of 2010, is now a full fledged blogger, social media addict and published author. This all came about after years of doctors, teachers and friends encouraging me to write about our life with three children who have a variety of learning differences, including our daughter who has extensive special needs. The Dishwasher has been running here since January of 2011. In the Spring of 2012, I co-founded the online magazine Bonbon Break and then happily returned to my beloved Dishwasher full time in July of 2013. My work has been featured in BlogHer and Mamapedia among other publications. I am also honored to have essays in the anthologies, Sunshine After the Storm and The HerStories Project. Have a question? Please feel free to contact me at, kathyradigan@hotmail.com, I look forward to hearing from you!
