Book club fail: Why I had to quit my book club

I joined a book club in July. Thought it would be a good opportunity to meet other other people, including some book nerdy moms. The first meeting went well. I got along with all the ladies at my end of the table. About 23 people showed up. The organizer was really great and…organized. I joined […]

Worst city in U.S. to get around and navigate

Just got back from a family vacay in Dallas. Why Dallas, you ask? Because I have some family there. Little did I know that the Republic of Texas’ totally messed up beyond recognition highway and frontage road system can tear families apart. We went in August, with temperatures reaching somewhere between instant disintegration and purgatory. […]

Perimenopause paranoia leads to some really disturbing thoughts

I’ve been kinda obsessed with menopause lately, probably because I think I might be pre-menopausal. I’m in my mid forties.

As much as we’d like our has-been celebrities to be known for science based medicine, that’s kind […]

Demi Moore needs to get over her postmenopausal self

Demi Moore bugs me. She shouldn’t bug me, because I don’t know her and obviously there are much more pressing issues in my life. I shouldn’t be wasting brain cells on some run-of-the-mill celebrity, but everyone has their dumb, unworthy little ¬†annoyance triggers and for some odd reason Demi Moore is mine. Typically, I go […]

Sponsored: Quick relief for children’s sore throat pain

Colds have been running rampant in our house this year. With record cold temperatures, snowfalls and wind chills, it seems everyone is keeping their germs inside where contagions become airborne and spread like wild fire. Now, I’ve been known to try many different products and tricks to help my kids feel better when they feel […]
