Overly excited

This is an actual picture of me.

Tomorrow, yes tomorrow, I get to see my kids!

I haven’t seen my son in 7 months. 7 months!

We have lots to celebrate and a week of relaxation.

Until then it’s like I drank 12 cups of dark roast coffee.





Mom’s Day

Mother’s Day 2018 (so far)

1. Still trying to master the ins and outs of having a shaved head. Apparently you have to dunk your entire noggin in sunscreen.

2. I’m thinking of doing a donut wall in place of an accent wall in our family room.

3. I tried to lay out for 20 minutes and almost melted my face off. Only 4-5 months until my favorite weather (68-78) arrives again.

Happy Mother’s Day friends and family! 😘


From me to you

De Soave’s advice to you if you are 49 1/2 years old or older…

Buy Cheater/reader glasses in bulk at Sams Club. 👓 👓 👓 👓

Taking Glucosamine may or may not actually help joint pain but all that matters is you think it does.


Unless you enjoy heartburn finish eating 2 hours before bed. 🍕🍔🍟

Otherwise, you will constantly be googling the symptoms between heartburn and a heart attack.

Strange limps upon rising will disappear 30-45 minutes after getting up OR you can google stretches that you can do from the comfort of your 🛏.

Your lower back will most likely hurt on and off (even when you do your physical therapy exercises) until the day you die. I have no advice but I thought you should know.

Last but not least, being in a relationship with someone close to your own age is better for your psyche at this stage in life.

Together you can share cheater/reader glasses, Glucosamine, stretch routines and Tums.

Remember…sharing is caring.

Apparently it’s my bio

It’s uncanny how much this person knows about me.


De Soave’s main goal is to put a smile on at least one person’s face every single day and she usually manages to do this by writing things that randomly pop into her head.

De has two adult children who she refers to as M&T.  One is always up for a new adventure and the other is a homebody.  One hopes to live in the south one day and the other practically lives in the North Pole.  The one thing they can always agree on is an overpriced Bloody Mary.

De’s husband is Den and he retired from the Air Force after 26 years, started another career and is the most amazing caregiver to De (when need be).  De is also the love of his life and he can’t live without her (most days).

De spends a majority of her day’s doc hopping because she was born genetically damaged and thrives on staying alive.

In the past 35 years, De has sold one online story and hopes to exceed this number by one or two in the next 35 years or until she succumbs to one of her medical conditions.

De inherited her quirky (hokey) sense of humor from her dad and there isn’t a single soul that laughs at their jokes more than the two of them.

Facts about De Soave

She could survive on chocolate and taco’s.

She can only fall asleep to HGTV.

She has at least 15 rolls of paper towels in the house at all times.

She apparently enjoys referring to herself in the 3rd person.

She requires alone time 85% of the time or her right eye starts twitching.

She loves her son’s $300.00 “hand me down” couch and fears the day it makes its way to furniture heaven.

She purchases solid color jammie pants so in case of an emergency (walking outside to get the mail) they can be passed off as regular pants.

She is a perfect weather seeker (68-78 degrees) because extremely hot weather makes her head hurt and extremely cold weather makes her joints ache.

She loves to travel to new places and usually on arrival, she wants to go home.

*She’s quite savvy on figuring out those social media thingymijigs so feel free to follow her…
