Game Show Car Work (Not Necessarily In That Order)

March 21, 2014

I have been covering the BlogHer Twitter stream for Momo this week, who took spring break off so she could spend quality time with her kids without keeping one eyeball on her phone or her laptop at all times (seriously). Because I work with her AND because she is one of my closest friends, I […]

You Can’t Argue With My St. Patrick’s Day Logic.

March 17, 2014

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and I forgot to ask Jim to pick up cabbage to go with the corned beef (which I bought last week) when he did the grocery shopping on Saturday. I also forgot to ask J to pick up cabbage when he stopped on the way home from his girlfriend’s house to […]

Sometimes It’s Best To Let Other People Make The Decisions, No Matter The Outcome.

March 13, 2014

I’m easily stressed. This is not news to most of you. It’s mostly because I’m a worrier. And a perfectionist. And…well, need I go on? When I find myself in the middle of a stress spiral as I am this week—for many reasons, all of which have been resolved/finished/taken care of—the part of my brain […]

I Really Love Love.

March 8, 2014

I am one of those people who uses the word “love” very freely. If you know me personally—or let’s face it, even just on Facebook—you might think I overuse the word. “I love this song.” “I love cookies.” Regardless of what others think, specifically those who believe that the word should not be dropped at […]

It Was On Like Donkey Kong.

March 5, 2014

It’s funny, Momo often says there’s nothing much to do in Columbus, but each time I’ve visited she’s taken me somewhere that is unique and so much fun. Last time it was to German Village. On Sunday she and her husband took me to lunch at a really cool place called Dirty Franks Hot Dog […]

Musings From The Road

March 2, 2014

Hello from Momo‘s house in Columbus, Ohio! I was on the road for six hours yesterday: it was heavenly. I am borrowing a Buick Regal (review to come next week) which is equipped with XM Radio, and my five favorite stations—80′s on 8, 90′s on 9, Pop2K, KIIS-Los Angeles, and Z100/NY—kept me singing at the […]

It’s that time again: today is Donna Day, a day on which I am joining a huge group of bloggers in trying to create some waves regarding childhood cancer.

Six Of One, Half Dozen Of The Other

February 24, 2014

I have always been very proud of the way I can remember things. From dates to pop culture factoids to details about all kinds of things, remembering is one of my greatest skills. Well, it was. As I’ve grown older (and frankly, more dependent on Google Calendar), my memory bank is shutting down a little […]

I Just Helped Give Birth to 13 Babies And I’m Exhausted.

February 19, 2014

After an anxious, emotional (understatement), and sleepless (mostly) weekend of laboring, Tracey and I finally gave birth to thirteen bouncing baby girls. Well, adult girls. And we’ve both already lost all of our pregnancy weight! Amazing, right? The cast of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER CHICAGO 2014 was announced today (by us, the proud parents). I […]
