Because, I'm Awesome, My Husband Said So!

I've been blogging for nearly a decade (because 10 years doesn't sound nearly as great as all the gray hairs I've managed to nurture, along the way, YO!) and I've seen lots of good things happen to some pretty terrific people. Some really craptastic stuff too, dammit. Focusing on the great, the thing I love MOST about blogging communities? There is almost always someone ready to lift you up and out of [enter whatever has you in a funk, right at this particular moment, right here] by the very simple act of typing three little words: "I get it."

Did I Ever Tell You About the Spider Eggs in Our Wallpaper?

I finally caught up with Melisa, today -- she's having a tough week -- although, she'll tell you everything is okay, no really; she's fine. Still, girl could use a virtual hug. G'head, I'll wait. Not for nothing, but having 3 out of 4 of my kids having attended, entering and/or graduating high school, this year (the boy is a freshman, our middle girl is a senior) I feel it safe to say that...YUP!!!...sending off "your youngest kid" to college is a really BIG deal!!! Personally, I hate to think what it will be like for Hope, when she's ready... Read more →

Our silly little Loopy Krispies Treat vlog or reason #2,934 why you probably won't see me on the Food Network, anytime soon!

I am being compensated for my services for the length of the program. The kids and I are having a slow week up here on Cape Cod -- apparently, I am way too much fun for my teens to handle (shuddup!) they've been sleeping in since Sunday -- so I was very happy when our friend Sue invited us to her house for dinner, last night. "Sounds great, we'll bring dessert!" We're headed home on... Read more →

I Blog, Facebook & Instagram: Therefore, I Remember

I left for BlogHer13 on July 24th and I haven't been home, since. Okay, so I was home for a whole entire day and a half, before leaving for our first family summer vacation in, well, forever, giving myself enough time to: unload my suitcases wash clothes drop Doofus-Dawg off at his country canine cousins' house take my teens shopping for last minute vacation-y sort of stuff [deep breath, exhale] clean the house because, coming home from vacation to a messy house is worse and THEN reload suitcases all over again In an attempt to ignore the pain in my...

Donate a Photo: Taking Selfies for Good & Healthy Essentials Giveaway

We are currently vacationing in Cape Cod, MA (a.k.a. my pretend home), and with our oldest girl working full-time and our middle girl entering her senior year in high school (no, I'm not quite sure how THAT happened, either!) we're taking advantage of sharing every possible moment, together: oh yes, there will be selfies :) Today, I'm very excited to partner with my friends at and share with you information about Donate a Photo: a free app developed for Android and iOS platforms that allows consumers (like you and me) to give back to causes we care about by...
