Coma Anyone?

Belviq Side Effects in Detail – I catch the last 10 minutes of Bethenny this morning when I see an ad for a new weight loss medicine. It is a sad Debbie Downer of a commercial about how uncomfortable it is in social situations to not acknowledge when you feel full… or if you […]

The Race Thing

I am the youngest of three by 6 and eight years. For a long time I was essentially an only child. My brothers were out of the house completely by the time I was 10. My parents divorced when I was 8 and as a result of all the madness, I always felt my place […]

This morning I was very thankful for Evite. We are having a bowling party for my son’s 8th birthday next month and today he wanted to contribute to the kitchen chalkboard: He loves to draw, but I can only imagine the phone calls if this was sent out as the invite!

Mother’s Day

This morning I was thinking about mother’s day and getting wrapped up in what fun treasures my son may have made at school. What last minute gift my husband might be seeking out. What fun little drawing my daughter might make for me on a card. Then I began thinking about a woman I know […]
