What do I want? Anything for my camera? What I would buy? Either a flat screen or a new phone for my husband because he literally gets nothing new every. Poor guy.

I wish I could answer which one was better! I use Google calendar because it's auto synced with my phone. I also have a Busy Body Book that I love too. The problem is I'm not consistent with either!

One of the biggest goals I have, since turning 30 (ahem) years ago is to live my life authentically. I know it sounds very hip and new agey but really, I'm not that cool. More likely I am just too... Continue reading

When I get swept up in the beach chairs and bar-b-ques of this long weekend, I try to remember what we are celebrating. It is easy to forget that this is more than just a day off-it is a time... Continue reading

Megan, It is just the Wii fit plus. My sister got it for me as part of the gift. I hear ya on the expensive stuff. The trainer portion isn't much more than just tracking your weight and BMI, but the activities are great. Someday I hope to get a "game" that has an actual training program that will be just for me and my particular "issues". I'll keep you posted if I find it!

Yay! I wrote about this same thing over on NJMoms so as for "being in the minority" there are at least two of us.;) Glad to see I'm in good company.

Hilarious! I read this with baited breath as my kids are in that "I wanna be" stage and I couldn't wait to see what would happen when they grow up. Now, I'm not so sure I want to know. We might not have anything left to sponge.;) As a mom who tends to get way too deep over her kids' thoughts and aspirations-thanks for lightening the mood.

We have that here too-with Grandpa even more than dad. We love it and hate it.;) Good thing they're strong enough to survive us!

Yes! I am a recent transplant with a similar story and I too love my new home.

I had the only working mom and I think that's really why everyone did hang around my house.;) We need a little substitute around here for computer time, so I probably will reconsider the Wii. Thanks.

Thanks Rob. That seems to be the common opinion and I can't disagree. My only Wii fear is I won't be able to figure out how to play it, or-even worse I'll hog it and they'll never get to play.:)

by interace is the most user intuitive do you mean gaming dummies like me can figure it out too? I hope so because it seems to be the front runner right now. Thanks!

All I have to say to you is Thank You. My picky eater is only 2 and he is my third kid. The other two were "normal" picky and seem to outgrow it by the day. This one, hates most everything and the worst is that it seems arbitrary and never consistent. You give me hope that he will indeed survive and grow up into a lovely young man. He will not die of starvation and I will not run screaming from the house forever (as I have suspected a few times!)I may continue to lose my love of cooking (it's leaving rapidly) but may someday enjoy a nice meal again. Thank You! You have made my life so much better. I am not going to buy the pizza pretzel things for dinner.

Thank you Mike, Emily and Alicia. I'm not even sure what syndication means for my little story, but it sure feels flattering!:)

Yeah!! I'm so with you. I've already started the revelution by forgetting bags o' crap and just handing out one lollipop or this year for my seven year old-one sparkly lipgloss. Still offensive-but less so.;) Consider me on Team Suburban Norma Ray. Down with goodies bags.

This is fantastically written. You have an amazing voice that cuts right to the quick. That said, I also just spent some time over at SAM reading your other (hysterical!) stuff. Um... I think I love you. At the very least I wish we could hang out and have cocktails.

I always tell people it's like living in Annapolis just a little bigger people wise, but a similar flip-flop and fine wine feel.;)

Ah yes,the catch. We have our kid in Catholic school and we are new here and renting-for now. So, talk to me when we have to pay property taxes and tuition. I might not notice the slate sidewalks as much then.;) I'll try though!
