I. Don’t. Bluff.

Have you ever had an evening go from blissfully pleasant to shitty in the space of about 90 seconds? We were having a fantastic day.  Jake doesn’t have Tae Kwon Do on Mondays so there’s no running around, no rushing.  We always have time on Mondays for a slow dinner, a board game, whatever.  Tonight […]

These boobs were made for talkin’

Have you seen this commercial for Reebok Women’s EasyTone Shoes?  I have no problem with the concept of the shoes.  I just think the commercial is really dumb.  Because it’s not bad enough that I already compare my body to other bodies (yeah, I do, all the time.  If I know you then I’ve sized […]

Very cool t-shirt giveaway from Estilo LAB

My newest advertiser, Estilo LAB, is a boys’ t-shirt company with hip, unusual designs (sometimes even featuring drawings from the owner’s nine-year-old son Jalen, whose art is quite impressive).  The owner, Lisa, has offered up a great prize for one lucky reader: a shirt from the current line (either the ABC Tree shirt in sizes […]

Privacy in crises

I was on my way to bed, about to turn off the computer.  But I decided to check CNN.com, always a big mistake – I need to learn to just turn off the computer without “checking” a bunch of sites.  And this article was at the top, about half-a-million text messages from September 11th that […]

I need a vacation, not a trip!

I’m over on the NYC Moms Blog today, talking about how I’d like to do more travel with my family that doesn’t involve visiting other family.  The only problem is, I don’t want to achieve that by visiting my family less.  I think my husband just needs 12 weeks of paid vacation every year and […]

iTunes winners, and how to update your DRM protected music

First off, I’d like to congratulate the winners of the iTunes gift cards, courtesy of Holiday Inn: Jen and Susan.  Congratulations, and thanks again to Holiday Inn for the great prizes. [Don't read this next part if you're an avid iTunes purchaser, or just generally aware of digital media happenings - you'll just be saying […]

No turkey…yet

[kaltura-widget wid="axgbr0ry8k" width="400" height="290" addpermission="" editpermission="" /] This was the line this morning.  No thanks. Originally posted on Selfish Mom.

Weight Loss Tuesday: Eating the Wagon

When I don’t like the way something is going, I don’t address it and try to fix it.  At least not at first.  I ignore it until it becomes a much bigger problem.  Mature, I know.  And that’s what I’ve been doing with my weight. I’ve been good, I’ve been bad.  There hasn’t been a […]

Santa Claus: I almost spilled the beans

I put Jake to bed a little while ago.  He looked huge in his bed.  He’s big for eight.  And I can’t believe he still believes in Santa Claus. I took the kids to an event on Saturday where they got to hang out with Santa.  Which, frankly, was a little weird.  Nice weird, but […]
