The World According to BarbBarb is a woman, over 50, who is just trying to cope with all that life throws her in 2017.

She doesn’t mean to be grumpy but she lives alone, with her small dog, and a family of earwigs who just won’t leave.  She has worked in the same company for 20 years, give or take, and she feels that she has given quite a bit over those years so now she is ready to take.

So pull on your big girl’s pants and go on an adventure with Barb through her days, her nights and all those special days throughout the calendar that normal people celebrate.

Oh, and she also loves reading the novels of John Irving so that is how the name of her blog came about.

Google him if you are too young to get that literary reference!
