I love the ladies from SATC. I have been watching the show since its inception: it was a great excuse to buy the much coveted HBO. Anyway, I’ve followed the ladies through all of their trials and tribulations, cried, yelled at and talked to them. When the show ended I felt like my friends had left me. I was sad and lost. By that time I had lost all hope in TV. When SATC came back in reruns on TBS I… Continue

I recently watched a screening of "Sex and the City 2." Yes, the clothes were over the top. Yes, the indulgence was completely ridiculous. Yes, most of the movie was a fantabulously fantastic, overexcessive, and overabundant in richness---and we true SATC fans absolutely adored each moment of it!
I do applaud the introduction of the storyline involving the complexity of motherhood. In one of the… Continue

Whether you are addicted to alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, food, or nicotine, the neurological pattern that develops is the same. The reward center in your brain is underactive, and it takes more in life to tell that part of your brain that you're having a good time. Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.

New research is showing us fascinating information about the brain. We are now learning that we can form new brain cells at nearly any age with physical exercise, and that exercising before class can significantly boost learning capacity by spawning new brain cells. Learning new information immediately following aerobic exercise fills the new cells with information.
The new neural pathways formed during exercise are like new railroad tracks in our brains. If we don't use them, we… Continue

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS? The article was so unbelievably incomplete that I felt compelled to provide additional information.
The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue

If you are a conscientious dog owner then you know the areas of focus for dog wellness, including exercise, diet, health and nutrition.
Are you also aware of the pet killer medicines that are probably in
your home right now and perhaps not put away safely?
When it comes to our children it goes without saying how very careful, maybe even paranoid we are about medicines of any kind left lying around the house. Are you as… Continue

Several weeks ago a friend who is struggling to find a way to get along with her 14 year old daughter asked me how I coped with raising a teenager. I told her that my daughter and I got along great during her teen years, and actually had fun together. A look of shock mixed with disbelieve came over her face. She asked, “So what is your secret?” Having never given much thought to the subject, I decided to ask my daughter… Continue

For some of us, holiday rituals are our happiest memories. For others, they are the flint that sparks our greatest fears.
Perhaps memories of unhappy holidays past haunt us. Or maybe we stress out at the pressure to project "happiness" during this time of year.
If something truly important is bothering us, faking some form of cheeriness isn't going to keep us from gnashing our teeth when another ornament falls and shatters,… Continue

Before I became a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom), I knew that I didn’t want my children in daycare, and I can’t quite recall if my husband and I had a thorough discussion about me staying home once we started a family. Our first child was born December 23, 2005. I thought I had two more weeks to relax and prepare for her arrival but she had other plans. She knew Christmas was in two days and wanted to come home Christmas day. The day I went into labor was also the first day of the MTA transit strike… Continue
