Oh Come All Ye Old Faithful Suckers

On a recent three day road trip to northern California our wallets were gouged by near $6 a gallon gas prices, fainting goats on strike and a spitting steam valve purported to be the “Old Faithful” geyser.With a Cliff notes itinerary and travel time a premium, our rental car quickly filled with irritated banter when my husband altered our plans.

"Me Bad Parent:" The Do's and Don't of Parenting

I was online searching for images of parenting, and I came across these old-school photos of baby care "do's" and "don'ts."

That's Not Hummus!

I pride myself on healthy eating.It's my thing.But I've been slipping lately. I work from home. It's intense and hurried. I cram my work into the times my children are at camp and daycare, and I cram my food in, too.I love my job. I do. It's dreamy.

Most people don't get to balance their profession, family, and personal time like I do....more

I would, in fact, feel bad if I the gondola tipped over or the parachute didn't open and I died. There are two things I would like to do before I die: Use up most of what's in our pantry and use my miles. More important is what I don't want to do before I die, like:1. Be in assisted living...more
