Two more days until the girls go back to school. Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun.
It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder. At times, it has been a nightmare.

We have gave GoPicnic
ready-to-eat meals a mention in our Concert in the Park
story but felt that this great product deserved to be featured on its own. Created by a flight attendant Julia Stamberger in 2006, GoPicnic meals were first offered on major U.S. airlines as an alternative to the costly but poor quality in-flight meals (you know the… Continue

School is starting next week, so it is time to start getting ready for lunch packing...bleck! Sorry, but I absolutely detest packing lunches...not sure why, but I do. One morning during the last school year, when I was packing Kate's lunch, I realized that most of the items I was putting in her lunch box were ridiculously processed. It's actually one of the reasons that I started this blog. I decided that I needed to do a better job of making sure that I feed my children healthier foods,… Continue

Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is an outsider at her high school. Quiet and shy, as well as cursed with a tortuous family past, she can’t hope to attract the attention of popular Tyler Marsh, for whom she has a crush. How could a girl like her, a girl with a low social status, an alcoholic father and a mother who abandoned her, dare hope…

Dear Liquor Store,
Perhaps you may have heard some rumblings about the impending summer vacation that's about to pounce on the town here any day now. Yes, kids will soon be out terrorizing the streets and pimping lemonade hardcore on every effing corner. They will be changing their clothes 357 times a day, thereby creating even more… Continue
