I LOVE FACEBOOK!

I just love facebook. I have never been to so many parties in one year in my life. I know, I know, I wasn’t technically invited – but surely it didn’t cost anything to have me there. Gotta run. Baby is being born in Topeka and I don’t want to miss it. For more about ...

Necessity, the mother of invention?

So I got this new Snuggie for Christmas – and I LOVE it. When I am wrapped up in it, I am snug as a bug in a rug – no cliche intended. I thought they were a little corny in the commercial, but mine is animal print which is VERY fashionable even if it ...

I’m so pathetic…

I’m so pathetic, that the space shuttle lands and I can’t pay attention long enough to hear the rest of the sentence. But tell me that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are picking out new furniture for Suri’s room and I am hooked. I will see a front page full spread article on the plight ...

Feeling like you don’t measure up?

Feeling like you just don’t measure up in this world of skinny bodies and shiny cars? Depressed because you couldn’t button your pants this morning until you lifted your stomach over the top of them – realizing you have gone from muffin top to whole muffin? Worried about that gray hair growing out of your ...

On Book Clubs…

It’s very popular to be in a book club nowadays. But I’m going to be honest. I don’t have time to read a book. And if I do, it is not going to be one of the deep ones on Oprah’s list – I want shallow with a little smut mixed in and perhaps a ...

Go Hug A Kindergarten Teacher! What I Learned About Leadership and Motivation from My Son’s Kindergarten Teacher

Yes, we teach our son at home. I can see the look of shock on your face. And I can hear your response, “You’ve got to be kidding! You teach your child at home? There is no way you would get me to homeschool my child!” I know that’s what you’re thinking because that’s the ...

Being Repulsed by the Views of Others? Really?

This morning I heard someone say that some comments they read on Facebook “repulse” them. Really? The words someone types in a little box on a computer screen affect you that deeply? Is it every comment or just the ones you don’t agree with? Are you fine if they ask you to give a goat ...

I Love You Aluminum Foil

I don’t say it enough, but I love you aluminum foil. For as far back as I can remember, you were there, wrapped around the antennae on the black and white TV. You were the reason we got that fourth channel. You sat patiently while we argued over who was hotter, Marcia or Brady. I ...

Random Shoe in the Road

Why is it every time I’m out driving I end up seeing a random shoe in the road? Just one shoe lying on its side in the middle of the road. Sometimes a tennis shoe – sometimes a work boot – sometimes a slipper. Never a set – just one. Why is it there? And where is the ...

Die Easter Bunny! Die!

Die Easter Bunny! Die! Yes, those were the words that my son chanted as he foraged his way through the woods looking for Easter eggs. Okay, so perhaps I should not have let a five-year-old watch BraveHeart. But how was I to know that he would then march through the trees with his handmade spear ...
