  • Why I Experiment With My Vita-Mix

    I just got to have a Vita-Mix I love to experiment with small appliances. In the world of blenders a Vita-Mix is the Bentley  and the Boeing of blenders.  They last forever.  At a fair demonstration the guy was using the same model as what my Grandma had 30+ years ago.  He made both hot soup and sorbet with the same machine.  Hot soup+ sorbet= One magical appliance. Pow, my mind was blown away. They are made of all steel parts […]

    Mom Fail: Daughter’s Driver’s Permit Exam

    How can a teenage daughter’s driver’s permit exam become a Mom Fail?  In my mind, I thought it was a great idea to pick up my daughter after her first day of school of her junior year and take her to get her learner’s permit.  What an excellent way to start off the new school year. The Terrific Idea Why wait two weeks for a scheduled DMV appointment when an hour or so of patience could get her behind the wheel […]

  • Fluffy Hair Day

    Fluffy Hair Day

    My sister has beautiful naturally long blond locks I only dreamed of having.  I even took her into the beauty salon one time, clasped a fistful of her hair, and said to my hair dresser, “I want the color she has!”  I’ve been paying for a hair color similar to hers since high school.  I just didn’t get the naturally good hair gene. My daughter has beautiful thick hair.  She washes it and lets it air dry into cascading waves. […]

    Mom Fail: First Day of School

    Okay,  you win some and you lose some.  This was one of those, “this kind of thing only happens on a Monday,” sort of things.  It’s Tuesday.  My kids are supposed to have another week of summer break before school starts.  Well- one of them did anyway.  If the first day of school is any indication of what the school year will be like,  just throw me under the bus.

  • The Video Game Slippery Slope

    The Video Game Slippery Slope

    With Kids and Video Games, Moderation Is Key – Moderation is the key to many things in life. Television is okay in moderation, but being a couch potato is not. Dessert is fine in moderation. For example, eating a slice of pie is all right, but eating the entire pie is not. In my house there is no greater slippery slope of moderation than the video game debate. I do not doubt those who spend an hour or less playing […]
