As if the thought of your teen driving wasn't scary enough

I was in my late teens when I started driving.

And I have never thought about this before now, but I saved my mother a large amount of money by not getting my license sooner. I didn't know this, but the average married couple's car insurance rate…

The PSAs that still haunt me

With all the television that I watched as a child, I recall there being an awful lot of Public Service Announcements. There was the egg one about your brain on drugs (and the other drug one where the frying pan destroyed the kitchen), and all the more you…

5 things I learned this Halloween.

1. Picking a costume is so much easier when you have kids.

         I used to have so much trouble choosing my costumes, but you know who has no trouble at all choosing my costumes? MY SON.  He is very opinionated when it comes to what I wear, Halloween or not.

 Like a lot of 6 year old boys this year, my son chose to be a ninja turtle. Micheal Angelo, to be exact.  Of course, he wanted me to be April O'Neil, and since I'm pregnant, I had to get a little… Continue

Can I please just drive?

My son and I are on the way to the grocery store and my phone dings. I ignore it. It dings again. Then my phone rings. Normally, I have Bluetooth enabled in my car, but it is off right now, so I don't answer the phone. My son asks me why I don't answer the phone and my answer is, "Because I'm driving and people can wait."…

Parents: Stop calling your kids

I would like to issue an overdue apology to my five roommates in college: I'm sorry I wouldn't answer the phone. Back in the pre-cell phone days (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth), a call would come into the dorm room phone, and I wouldn't move to answer it.…

How long can you ignore your phone?

I'd like to issue a long-overdue apology to each of the five roommates I had in college: I'm sorry that I did not answer the phone when it was ringing. I knew that it drove you crazy, but I was absorbed in something else/didn't feel like talking to anyone, and thus, did not answer the phone.

But, I…

Making my peace with traffic

One of the many reasons we moved was to shorten our commute time. So, although I find myself driving less miles, I find that I am in the car for the same amount of time as I used to be (or sometimes for longer). Every morning and evening, I sit in traffic and look at the other cars around me: I see angry, frustrated drivers who are endangering everyone around them by not using turn signals when merging; I see sleepy drivers who are…

The Antique Car Show Snafoo


We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice.  I honestly don't seek them out.  They just somehow always find me.  And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend.  Only me, right??!…

What Every Parent Should Know About Buying A Car For Their Teen

Many of us probably remember the joy of having our very first car. Getting our driver’s license was a good feeling of control, the freedom of being behind the wheel without supervision was as exciting as it was scary!

It is a very exciting and scary time for your teen as well and you really need to consider what type of car you want them driving while they are so inexperienced. The additional expense of a new car probably doesn’t sound like a great idea right now so I wouldn’t advise…

Dutch Laws~Four Farmer's Road Rules

Once upon a time in a faraway land

Came 4 funny Dutch farmers with a little time on their hands

They all agreed to go for coffee at ole Joe’s shop

They all left their four houses; drove down the road, then came to a stop.

They came from the four corners of their country farms,

From the north, south, east and west,

All heading to Joe’s not causing any harm.

But when they met each other on that old country road

They knew they were in a…

Road Rage

My daughter and her friends think I have road rage.  I don’t have road rage; it’s just that I frequently disagree with how others handle themselves on the road.
