September edition of the name game

On August 12, my mom sent me a seemingly random text message that said: I named you after Lauren Bacall. Cool. Babe. First of all, can we just pause here to recognize how suave my Mom is? She's a pretty crafty chick and an amazing woman. You should check her out.(Also: my dad says that he named me after Lauren Hutton, but that info isn't…See More

We've all got the blues

When I did my 100 book challenge last year, I would occasionally (and accidentally) get a large print book from the library. I'd crack it open, see all the large typeface and think, "Wow. That's kind of nice."My husband, who has perfect vision, would claim to be able to read the book from…See More

Negotiating a game of Calvinball

Like many other very cool people, I am a fan of Calvin & Hobbes. And because of that, I know the rules of Calvinball:You make up the rules as you go along.You can't play the game the same way twice.Before I had a child, I thought this was the whimsical invention of a genius storyteller. It made me laugh. Then I had a son, and now he is at the age where he is ready to play Calvinball.…See More

Taking back my lunches

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how we are all eating more and more meals by ourselves. When it comes to lunches, that doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is that I am eating those meals at my desk.Once upon a time, I used to leave my desk every day for lunch. I would find a quiet spot - outside when it was nice - and eat, relax, soak up some sun,…See More

How long am I supposed to run?

I would not describe myself as a runner. Runners tend to try races and talk about branching out to trails and go through sneakers much faster than I do. But, I do run for exercise. And, although I do not enjoy it, I would say that I have tolerated it more than most other exercises.…See More

Traveling companions are better than apps

We recently took a 10-hour drive to New Jersey for a family reunion. (Not in one day. That's craziness.) This trip went significantly better than the last really long car trip we took because of several things:I wasn't the only adult in the car with my son. My husband was able to come, too.My mother (thanks, Mom!) came with us as well, so our son had his favorite traveling companion…See More
