  • THIS guy
    on Jan 31, 2011 in Being Awesome the fam
    Two years. Today. Him, me, wedded bliss. Blending families, adoption, senior years, graduations, reality TV show filming, custody stuff, former spouses, straddling bills, heaving taxes, occasional injuries, sick kids, freshmen years, kindergarten thr...
  • Worst. Advice. EVAR.
    on Jan 27, 2011 in Being Awesome
    As parents we throw out advice constantly, usually with absolute sincerity and certainty that we are totally clear in our meaning. It goes with the underlying feeling that we are always right. And why is that? Because, as kids, we were so consistentl...
  • Egg on my face
    on Jan 21, 2011 in It just is
    I chatted with a coworker. Then another. Walked down the hall, filled my water cup and cleaned out my coffee mug, saying hello to others in the office along the way. It was a pleasant morning. I was in a relatively good mood when I sat down at my com...

  • Gestational carrier…?
    on Jan 18, 2011 in Eye-roller

  • Ramblin’ man
    on Jan 18, 2011 in the fam
    Last Thursday my almost 18-year-old son finally took his driver's test. He'd been working on the book  training while driving at his leisure for the last year. And through all that time, I have been dreaming of the day when I wouldn't have to drive...
  • Date nightOn Friday night-- for the first time in weeks-- my husband and I went on a date.  As a I am HUGE advocate of weekly date night, clearly there is something wrong with this picture. Date nights are important, nay,VITAL if a couple is to survive the ri...
  • The flame… of FIRE!The web is abuzz right now with a clip from Rachel Ray's talk show, wherein 3 face products are discussed; each provide an instant change in appearance-- a reduction in wrinkles, under-eye bags and discoloration. "Never believe what you read. Never b...
  • Words for 2011: Reduce & UpcycleI read this amazing article in Sunset Magazine about the Johnson family, aka the zero-waste family. Suffice it to say, this family's way of life is stunning. And inspiring. SYNOPSIS: This family of four has figured out how to dramatically reduce the...
