Back when I was a teenager (in prehistoric times), girls did not have nearly the pressures they have today. Without cell phones and the Internet, there was no need to be constantly on, so there was more time Continue
to relax. There also wasn't the same urgency to beef up the college
resume with hundreds of clubs and AP courses and we didn't have parents
that signed us up for every activity known to man. However, we still
had problems, and there were very few resources…

Today we are looking at flea markets and books. I love books. Always have and probably will until I cant read or see or whatever anymore. One of the fun aspects of reading a book is scoring the sale. Yeah, sure, new books are great because they are new and don’t smell and no one else has ‘fingered’ the book. And I guess the Kindle and other e-readers are nice for those who like that sort of thing. I’m also a fan of audio books, especially in the car in traffic or on a long trip. But lately,… Continue

Diabetes is a killer. My 15 year old son was diagnosed with it when he was 11. It's been a tough almost five years, but things are looking up. I met Brenda Novak, a NY Times bestselling author, at a local writers meeting. Her son has the disease, too. Brenda is a dynamo. She took a proactive approach and started her Online Auction a few years ago. Since then, it's raised more than $700,000 for diabetes research!!
I host a page on the auction site, and this week Brenda is… Continue

From my blog post on OC FAMILY
I remember when the only parenting book available to me was “What to Expect When You’re Expecting
It was a heavy tome which described in detail everything going on with
a mama’s body – sometimes a little too detailed – it often gave the
worst case scenario which pretty much turned me into a hypochondriac
for the next 9 months. These days, parents-to-be are luckier because
there are so many… Continue

So, I can read, big deal right. It was pointed out to me recently that with the death of J.D. Salinger all my favorite authors are dead. Just in case you wanted to know the others include Douglas Adams and a bunch of long gone philosophers. I don’t make nearly enough time for my own reading pleasure anymore and no where has that been more… 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

Inspired by the classroom requirement to read independently for 20 minutes per day, this is the perfect way for princess fans to get their reading in! This set contains a book and a removable clock. The book contains four princess stories, each of which take approximately 20 minutes to read. The clock tells regular time and also acts as a timer for the reading which can be set in 5 minute increments. Girls can set the timer and read one of… Continue
