Making a Safe and Healthy Choice with 100% Naturals Cafe Steamers

I’ve been even busier than usual this week: There have been conference calls and meetings and I have spent the last couple of days working on a new WordPress website. These are the kind of tasks that make me do the impossible: Forget to eat. I mean, almost forget to eat — because eventually, I realize I am hungry and that’s when my diet is in the...

Yesterday was one of those days. I had to dash to a meeting immediately after a conference call (which meant I needed to wear grown-up clothes, make-up and — UGH! proper women’s shoes). On top of that, my daughter needed me to pick her up an hour early and then went to school without her phone — which meant that I would have no way to communicate...

Mother of Reinvention

By on Sep 23, 2013 in Generation Fabulous | 9 comments

I am a member of the Generation Fabulous group of midlife bloggers, which runs a monthly bloghop. This month’s topic is “Reinvention.” My home town of Los Angeles didn’t invent the concept of reinvention, but it is probably the capital of it. For generations, my city has beckoned folks from around the world to relocate, rethink and make a new start. I...

Brighter offers Southern Californians a simple, free dental insurance alternative – giving you access to discount cleaning, whitening and even orthodontia. This is something you should care about, because you don’t want to turn out like me. If you’ve read my blog for any bit of time (or just follow me on Twitter), you have probably seen me complain...

The New Television Season All Comes Down to Execution

The New Television Season All Comes Down to Execution

By on Sep 20, 2013 in Agents of Zeitgeist, Television | 2 comments

This has been one of those weeks where I’ve been afraid to read the news. Beginning with the Navy Yard shooting on Monday, it’s just been an unrelenting stream of one sad news story after another. Thank goodness we’re at the start of a new television season. I need escapist entertainment just to stay sane.   That’s why I joined my fellow...

Hankering for Frozen Greek Yogurt

I have been on a self-improvement kick for… well, my entire adult life. And since I hit middle age, that has meant focusing on weight control and eating a healthy diet. Those two directives are not always the same thing. I lost 56 pounds a few years ago on an extremely restrictive diet that may actually have resulted in doing more damage to my metabolism than...

The Good Mom

By on Sep 18, 2013 in Mom Life | 0 comments

UPDATED 9/19 – Because it’s really hard to write a decent blog post about being a good mom on my iPad. Also, that wine I was drinking didn’t help. What does it mean to be a good mom? That’s easy to define when they’re little. You feed them, you protect them, you play with them. You keep them clean. It’s more complicated when...

Justin Bieber’s Mom

By on Sep 16, 2013 in Celebrities | 0 comments

In which I reveal how little I know about Justin Bieber, or his mom. We bloggers get pitches. Most are woefully untargeted (I know a PR person hasn’t bothered to read my blog when he or she sends me information on baby bottles and diaper bags). Some are wildly ridiculous (pitches for sex toys, surgery and hemorrhoid cream come to mind). And every so often, I...

Musings on Friday the 13th

Musings on Friday the 13th

By on Sep 13, 2013 in Blather | 1 comment

When I worked at the Tonight Show, I could count on Johnny doing a series of jokes about phobias every Friday the 13th. That’s how I know that the word for fear of that date is triskaidekaphobia. It’s amazing the things you remember after 25 years. Of course, I started the day by oversleeping — which meant that my daughter also did not get up on...
