Why I Hate Bed Bath and Beyond
First of all, I want to love BBB. Truly love it. Everything I could need for my entire house under one giant roof – it should be paradise. Sun-up to Sun-down, this place has every meal covered. Breakfast gadgets and coffee K-cup refills, clever plates that hold my soup...
Nearly five years of health-related nonsense left me depressed, anxious, over-tired, over-weight, and feeling defeated. Until I shared a glass (or two) with my girlfriends and they insisted that I not give up. I didn’t. And that’s how I finally found out what was actually wrong. It was one of...
My American Inquiry
My American Inquiry, here is my wish for today- I wish that we humans can realize that we have more in common with each other than differences that divide us - and I hope that we can figure out this out before the aliens arrive to take over. Let me...

No More

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order...

I think technology has officially passed me up. I was thinking about The Jetsons the other day, and the episode when Mrs. Jetson was overwhelmed from the machines and gadgets that were supposed to simplify her life. I understand Jane so much better now, as I throw in the...
Do you remember when the Elf on the Shelf first came on the Christmas scene? It was back in the day when small bookstores still dotted neighborhoods, which is where I first saw the Elf, and his book. This was back before the Elf had clothes, gender identity, pets,...
Crap, It's Christmas
I’m not usually a Bah Humbug kind of girl, but this year I’m in a bit of a funk. Maybe it’s a year of politics that has me wishing for a third party. Or no party. Maybe it’s a year of “#metoo” and realizing that I think life is more like...
I miss the days when I could just sink money into the most adorable Disney Princess Halloween costumes possible. Katie has been Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Anna from Frozen, Sleeping Beauty (which at the time was before Katie perfected her speech articulation and she called her Cheapy Booty...
My relationship with our country and its symbolisms is a complex one. I’m not a flag waver. I’m not a flag burner. I grew up with both in my family. I broke bread at the same table as the patriot and the hippie. It was interesting, as a child,...
