Cyber Monday deals to check out

Cyber Monday deals to check out
Cyber Monday usually starts with a website search around Midnight (most stores start early), but this year I was driving back from a Florida vacation so had to do a quick search this morning. I always go to my regular websites/stores and look for items that might provide great deals and pretty much everyone provides... Read more »

AP Class Retraction

AP Class Retraction
Thinking I was very wise, I wrote an article about AP (Advanced Placement) classes in high schoolbeing a waste and for all of you to save your money and not to think that AP classes were going to allow you to graduate early. Hmmmm, I think I might have spoken too soon. My college sophomore is... Read more »

Furry Dogs

Think of the hair, but also, think of the poops.  Imgur.com
Did you ever wonder why you say, “There’s something in the dog’s FUR” but in the next sentence you’ll say, “There’s dog HAIR all over my pants.” I looked it up to see which one is correct. Apparently you say fur if the dog breed has a double coat, like a Newfoundland. If a dog... Read more »

Summer swim club parents need to lighten up

Summer swim club parents need to lighten up
I know I criticize sports parents quite a bit and I really shouldn’t since I’m one of those said parents, but they just make it so easy. A friend asked me if I attract the crazies, but I don’t think I do. I’m just really observant. I listen more than I speak and with age,... Read more »

Back to school - can't get here soon enough

Back to school - can't get here soon enough
We just finished up Fourth of July and already I’m seeing back-to-school sales and supplies in the stores. While most people and kids in particular cringe with those signs, I’m not completely crushed that back-to-school is right around the corner. I think I need some “normalcy” that the school year seems to provide. Some of... Read more »

Same sex marriage explained by kids on Jimmy Kimmel

There’s so much debate out there about same sex marriage and it seems as though adults have a much harder time with it than children. I really love how literal they think and how it’s all very cut and dry. When do we lose that? Our debates are so much more complicated and personal now.... Read more »

I'm a shitty book club member

I'm a shitty book club member
I moved to my current town ten years ago. I didn’t know anyone and met a woman that asked me to be part of a book club. Of course I jumped right in. All my kids were little so I knew it would be difficult to participate, but thought it was a great way to... Read more »

Slurpee 7-Eleven: Bring your own cup day!

Slurpee 7-Eleven: Bring your own cup day!
Most days of the year I’m a fanatic about reading ingredient lists but there are two days I prefer not to know what exactly is in the products my family is consuming. Those days are: July 11 and now April 11th. That glorious day on the 11th of July is the free slurpee day and... Read more »

Take some time, instead of pictures, to enjoy the moment

Take some time, instead of pictures, to enjoy the moment
“Why haven’t you been writing lately? I really do use your blogs like therapy. You say the things that I wish I could” When I was asked that yesterday, I wasn’t sure how to answer. I could say, “I’ve just been so busy” or “Just too many balls in the air” But I decided to... Read more »
