Take a Peek Inside My New House

When we last spoke, I was telling you about the house I just bought. You know the one, the Not-Too-Big, Not-Too-Small, Just-Right-House? The one with personality to spare? Anyway, since then I’ve had a bunch of people tell me they’d love to get a virtual tour of the joint, and as all I really thinkRead more…

Binge-Watcher

If you were wondering where I’d been lately and considering sending out a search party, you wouldn’t have to look too far.

Remember What to Expect When You’re Expecting? I mean, c’mon. Who am I kidding? Of course you do. If you’re a mommy of a certain age, you knew that book like the back of your still-young hand. Like the recipe you used for your famous seven-layer dip. Like the sound of your own baby’s cryRead more…

That Time I Was On TV

A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend texted and asked if I was around the next day to help out with a project she had going on at work. She’s the marketing guru at a local BMW dealer where they were filming a TV commercial and needed some extras and, since it’s my lifelong dream toRead more…

Virtual Reality

As the opening scene of the original “Star Wars” movie unfolded on our TV screen Saturday night – the mammoth underbelly of the Imperial Star Destroyer slowly crawling into view – I turned to my 12yo son and said, “Dude, you don’t even know how amazing this was back in the day.” That is, I wouldRead more…

In Which We’ve Lost Our Minds

“Bad news, sister,” my college friend said to me over breakfast a few weeks ago when I went out to spend a weekend at her place on Long Island. “All that Zzzquil could be making us crazy.” “Oh great,” I thought, “Let’s add this to the ever-growing list of things that keep me up at night.”Read more…
