Modern Day MS: A new resource is created

Modern Day MS: A new resource is created
My friend and fellow writer Beth Prystowsky announced she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) two years ago. These past two years were spent discovering a whole new world and unfortunately no matter how hard she searched, she couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for — she wanted more for and from this community...

Long Grove Apple Fest

Long Grove Apple Fest
Want some old-fashioned fun this weekend? Head out to Long Grove for Apple Fest. It runs all day on Saturday and Sunday (10am -6pm.) It’s like going out to the apple orchard but with beer and the apples are in bushels instead of on the tree. I STRONGLY recommend getting out there early – parking... Read more »

It's just Facebook

It's just Facebook
When it comes to Facebook, I often post things that happen in my day, or conversations that I find funny or intriguing. Yesterday I posted an interaction I had with my son over breakfast: After seeing my seven-year-old’s timed math test, I had to talk to him about pretty much failing it.

I am definitely more of a dog person than a cat person, but even I couldn’t help but giggle at this one.

Learning to love my messy home
Have you ever gone into someone’s house and fallen in love? Everything is immaculate, the furniture all matches, it’s high end and there isn’t a chip or scratch on anything.

Skinny Pop won't make you skinny

Skinny Pop won't make you skinny
I’m not sure if it’s because Skinny Pop is now on sale at Costco, or if it’s just that I’m looking for it, but that popcorn has shown up everywhere this past week. I am quite the popcorn snob and enjoy the snack immensely. However, I’ve never been a huge fan of Skinny Pop. I’m... Read more »

Facebook: to friend or not to friend

Facebook: to friend or not to friend
Every once in a while I’ll get a friend request on Facebook from someone I’ve never heard of before. I typically ignore it and move on. However, there are a few “friends” that I have no idea what to do with. They are hanging in limbo and I’m not quite sure what category to place... Read more »

Missing Joan Rivers: 12 of her best one-liners

Missing Joan Rivers: 12 of her best one-liners
So sad to hear that Joan Rivers passed away. She was by far my favorite comedian. Not only did she say it like it was, but she had the best self deprecating humor out there. There really is no other like her – in Joan’s memory, here are some of her best one-liners. Thanks for... Read more »

Coloring book for adults

Have you seen all the coloring books for adults out floating on the internet? I spent the weekend with a group of people I didn’t really know. We had some down time, so I printed up THIS BOOK and broke out some crayons. Talk about an ice breaker. We are officially no longer strangers. In... Read more »

I thought I was perfect too

I thought I was perfect too
Dear judgmental moms in Starbucks, Before my kids were born, I knew exactly how I was going to raise them and exactly how they’d turn out. They’d have a few flaws here and there, but we’d pretty much have a perfect family. I just knew it. Then when they were little, I struggled a little... Read more »
