And the LeapFrog Tag winner is…

Bonggamom!  She won a LeapFrog Tag Reading System and five books for herself, and an expanded-memory Tag and ten books for her local library!  This is a fabulous prize.  My daughter really loves her Tag. And I’m happy to say I’ve been sticking to – and often surpassing – my reading pledge of ten minutes […]

Dieting without exercising is…

…The lazy way out?  Impermanent?  Hopeless? I’ve never relied on exercise to lose weight before.  I’m just too lazy.  Dieting is passive.  I have to eat anyway, so I can just make better choices when I do, right?

Baby humiliation, Snuggie style

I’ve seen the commercials.  A friend even suggested that I should try to get my morning videos sponsored by the Snuggie.  The only problem is that I think they’re ridiculous.  I wouldn’t even want my family to see me in one, and they’ve seen me look pretty stupid. I’ve heard there are even Snuggie Pub […]
