No Need to Hibernate All Winter

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



Were you too busy on Super Bowl Sunday watching the commercials to notice that groundhog Punxsutawney Phil had emerged from his burrow? He saw his shadow and went back in to hibernate predicting that the blistery winter weather much of the country has been experiencing will last for another six weeks.



For many of us, winter weather does seem to drag on longer than we'd like. And being stuck at home in February and…

Suck It, Mother Nature

wire hangers

I'd always thought that Mother Nature and I kind of had a connection -- you know with the whole "mother" thing and all.  But I'm really starting to think that she's falsely assumed her title because no mama in her right mind would make it so damn cold outside that kids are off school and trapped indoors for days on…

A Polar Vortex Punch of Reality

Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing.  The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass.  It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all.  But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…

Book Review: Snow Escape by Roberta Goodman

I am finished reading another great book called “Snow Escape” by Roberta Goodman.  I have been following her on twitter for a few weeks and I had seen several posts regarding her book.  I sent her a message on Twitter and asked her if I could review her book.  She said, “that she would be honored if I reviewed her book.” This book is full of twists and turns, leaving you wondering where the author is going to lead each of the characters…

Winter Wonderland

Every New Year, thousands of people (if not more) make the resolution to get fit.  They sign up for gym memberships, buy workout DVD’s, and order the latest and greatest gadget from a slick infomercial on TV.  And usually about this time of year, several weeks in, a large majority of these same people let the…

The Magic of the First Snowfall

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season.  Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world.  And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.

We got our first snowy dusting just this…

A lesson in humility for mom, from the ground up

The morning was hectic; we were running late. We had finally pulled into the parking lot of the elementary school when I looked down at my son's feet, clad in clunky snow boots.

"Your shoes are in your backpack, right?" I said.

"Ummmm," he answered. I sighed. He had forgotten them. Again. The shoes I had put right by the front door were probably still right there. Why couldn't he remember?!

"Sean!" I said sharply. "C'mon! You need to work on…

Is it Really Spring?

So while the rest of the world has been enjoying spring like weather, its taken a little longer for it to feel like spring here. Last Sunday my son was playing in snow in the backyard. Crazy for April huh? We got about a foot of snow. But this weekend it has been in the 60's and very nice weather!… Continue
