If You Don’t Like the Michael J Fox Show You’re a Bad Person

I watched Family Ties growing up. I saw Back to the Future (on VHS and TV) and he was in a zillion movies as the super likable guy. Michael J Foxx has made appearances everywhere I watch and listen in the past few years since his Parkinson’s Disease has become his co-star. Every appearance, every interview and every PSA has the world (myself included) cheering for Michael J Fox. He wants to dance at his daughter’s wedding. I want him to dance at his daughter’s wedding. Only a monster wouldn’t …

I Know How to Work at Home Without Ruining Everyone’s Lives

My husband doesn’t know how to work at home. He knows how to work and he knows how to work while he’s in our home but working from home is a skill that requires finesse and not everyone knows how to do it.

It was a small one with about 30 women in attendance. It started at 6pm and was $500 to attend. Since I’d …

Zorbit’s Math Endorsement

Sometimes it’s hard for bloggers to know what to do when we fall in love with a product, app or locale that isn’t an exact match for the things we talk about every day but is still something we want to share with our readers. Recently I had that conundrum with Zorbits Math. You see I’m moving away from blogging every day and concentrating on blogger outreach for brands like Zorbit’s, Shopetti, Brighter and Sprint. In fact I’ve even launched a little site for my new business. Here’s where things …

Advice for New Parents: Raise Insecure Kids

No one prepared me for high school. Not my high school experience, my daughter’s. I mean yeah, there were those turkey necked ladies who wagged fingers when I was nursing my newborn and they all said, “It goes so fast.” And then they’d return to their decaf hazelnut lattes and book club. Not one of the decaf latte book club ladies told me the truth. Not one of those ladies ever said to me, “Don’t let her go to high school.” That would have been helpful information. That little tidbit …
