Act 1: In which my son gets clean
Synopsis: At about 7:30 pm, we tell our son it is bath time and ask him to go upstairs for his bath. Repeatedly. Our son yells that he is not dirty or stinky and does not need a bath. Or, he says that he is busy playing/reading/doing any activity that is not bathing. When he fails to comply, we either lead him up the stairs…

Dark circles are more commonly caused by heredity, unhealthy lifestyles, and poor care of skin around the eyes. If dark circles run in your family, it may be more difficult to prevent it. If poor diet, lack of sleep, and lack of regular physical exercise are causing those dark circles, you can shift to healthier habits. If poor skin care is causing you to develop dark circles, there are several ways to take…Continue

In 2008, we celebrated our first Christmas as a wedded couple. Less than three weeks prior to that, we closed on our first home. Despite towers of cardboard boxes and completely disheveled home, we still put up our first Christmas tree.
It was beautiful. It was adorned with delicate glass balls gleaming in purples, reds, blues, silvers and golds. Gifts of Christohper Radko and…Continue
I cannot be the only one...who has suspected that their long time friendships may have turned into something other than actual friendships over the many, many years that we have known each other. This is something I have been thinking about for…

If you're like most moms who write, you have your blog and a variety of other writing projects you're working on. You want to find time for each of them and also, to play with your kids, food shop, cook, clean, exercise, pay bills, socialize, laundry and, well, you know the list goes on and on.
One way I try to stay focused and organized (as much as a busy mom can) is to schedule writing time each week. Read more and see an example at …

All parents learn to appreciate a good mystery. Think about it: One moment, you are happily twirling along in the universe, doing your own thing and the next moment, you have a baby and are faced with a million unanswerable questions. (How long is the baby supposed to sleep now? What did the baby eat to make that smell? You want me to put the thermometer where?)
Let's hope she sets her sights a little higher...
She's only six, so it should be no surprise that she still puts me up on a shimmering glass pedestal whenever I walk into the room (minus the stripper pole, of course). But I don't deserve it.
I love my mother. She's ONE of my best friends in the world (sorry mom, you got bumped!). She has been…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who is relieved that this "holiday" week is over (and isn't afraid to say it). Between my part time job, shuffling Sonny Boy around, and the hubby off work for two extra days this week, I am ready for it all to go back to normal.
Here are some of the highlights (I use the word highlights loosely) from this past week of vacation:
While driving Sonny Boy to and from places, in between my driving to and from places for work, I wondered…Continue

Remember last year when I posted a review about iCaughtSanta.com? In case you have no idea what I'm referring to, click to read about my iCaughtSanta.com experience. It's a program where you simply take a photo somewhere in your home, then choose between Santa Clauses or even reindeers and add them to your photo. The software makes it look like you've caught Santa in action...for real! This couldn't be any easier. It makes a…Continue

Well, that's not all I want of course, but after months or probably years of replacing the crappy can openers I have bought I figured I'll vent my frustrations on my blog!
You know how you kind of splurge on household goods when you buy your first house or apartment? Well, that's what we did. We spent $30 on an electric can opener which was pretty…

I have a fabulous writer's group. I wouldn't be able to write without them
The comments they had about my first draft of my first chapter were basically, it stunk.
They didn't say it in those particular words. They're extremely knowledgeable about writing and they're really nice people. Instead, they used phrases like, don't tell, show. Or, think about the story arc. Honest hints that I need to start my chapter over. And they are right.
I keep in mind what writer Meg Wolister…
The other day, when I asked my six-year-old to go brush her teeth, she told me to, talk to her fist!
Every day is a new opportunity for her to wield her impetuous powers... And wield she does. From the time she calls room service to…
