September Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are traditionally made, and broken, in January. My resolutions, though, tend to rear their ugly heads in September. That’s when I re-evaluate my life, figure out what I want to do...

The Most Worrisome Time of the Year

I’ve always believed that the Most Wonderful Time of the Year was Christmas, but according to a certain office supply chain, it’s actually right now. The kids “are going BAAAACCCK!” Joyous parents jump through...

The Getaway Plan

By the time you read this, I’ll be back, but right now my family is preparing to go camping. The girls are collecting the towels, bathing suits, and bug repellent, my husband is filling...

Mom Doesn’t Want to Always Know Best

Let’s start with a misconception men often have. Many men think that if they have mastered the sentence, “Whatever you want is fine with me, Honey,” they have hit the relationship bullseye. Unfortunately, if that’s...

Wishful Economics 101

A Microwave and a Mother’s Heart

Forget that Mars and Venus thing. I have found the definitive difference between the genders. Or rather, my nephew found it. It is a YouTube series appropriately called, “Is it a good idea to microwave this?” Now...

Approval Addiction

I was one of the 13 gazillion people who watched that video of Susan Boyle from Britain’s Got Talent off of YouTube. She blew my socks off. But she also made me a little...

Right Kind of Fight

I’ve always enjoyed a good fight. When my husband and I disagree, we haul out every intellectual argument in our arsenal to show why the other person is irretrievably, irreconcilably, and certifiably off his...

Point of No Return

Recession, recession, recession. The news headlines these days are all recession, all the time, with Natasha Richardson’s tragedy occasionally thrown in. And like most bad things, we’re partly responsible for this economic downturn. In...
