The next Grilled Grandma

The next Grilled Grandma is my No. 1 fan and my No. 1 commenter here on Grandma's Briefs.

She's also my mom -- better known to Grandma's Briefs readers as Ann.

You may be wondering why I didn't feature my own mother as one of the first Grilled Grandmas. Well, as any editor worth her red pencil knows, it's imperative to have a backup plan for when a story falls through, leaving editorial space to fill. My mom has been my backup plan for the Grilled Grandmas feature since Day One ... which she knew and agreed to.

This week, one grandma I approached politely replied "No thank you" and another gave no reply at all. So, like she does in so many ways, my mama saved my ass helped me put my backup plan in place and stepped up for a grilling. Many, many thanks to you, Mom!

See ... even grandmas still need their mamas! I'm so happy to share mine with you. You can read her grilling right HERE.

Of course, if you know of a grandma who'd be happy to be grilled, I'd be happy to grill her. Just e-mail me her first name and e-mail address and I'll do the rest.

Today's question from "The Christmas Conversation Piece":

What's the biggest change in your life since last Christmas?

My answer: Sheesh ... there have been so many changes in the past year that I'm still trying to catch my breath. But probably the biggest change is that I've come to terms with the fact I'll likely never be an editor again after last December's layoff. I'm finally at peace with that and, although still in the process, I'm rather enjoying the reinventing of myself.
