Ever Had One Of Those Daze?

Last Thursday was one of those “daze” I should have stayed in bed. The day began with me, my family and my job in balance. By the end of the day I had trouble balancing toothpaste on my toothbrush. As I pulled the bedcovers over my head that night – yes, night eventually came – […]

Are You What You Eat?

Home-cooked meals – pork chops, pot roast and roast chicken – used to be the norm. Now they’re the exception. A family that can co-ordinate schedules to have dinner together has become food for thought. Thoughts about food run the gamut from necessities to no-no’s – from vitamins and minerals to Vic’s pizza and Ming’s […]

Who Ordered The Mail Order Catalogs?

I admit it. I need a twelve-step program for people addicted to mail order catalogs. I was clean and shopless for eight months. I was able to put every catalog that came in the mail into the wastebasket without opening a page. Unfortunately, my resistance crumbled when I was marooned in a doctor’s waiting room […]

Does It Have Your Stamp Of Approval?

Two cents here – three cents there – and up goes the cost of U.S. postage. Some of the increased revenue pays for change of address cards, which are free at the post office. When we moved, I sent these cards to friends and relatives I couldn’t notify by e-mail. Yes, Virginia, there are people […]

Can Exercise Be Exorcised?

My conscience won’t go on vacation. I can slather it with sunscreen and lay it in the sun, I can buy it maps and take it sightseeing, I can dress it up and take it out for a romantic dinner – but it refuses to go on vacation. While I’m trying to have fun, my […]

Do You Give Yourself Credit?

Once upon a time, not too long ago, my husband thought I had too many credit cards – especially for clothing shops and department stores. John thought having so many credit cards could discredit our credit. I charged salon services, movie tickets and luncheons with friends – which seem to cost more than lunches. Anyway […]

Is There A Job You Wouldn’t Do?

“Jobs Americans Won’t Do” has been in the news a lot lately; and I admit it – there are jobs I won’t do. I won’t be a high-rise window washer. My fear of height overrides my desire to peek in windows. To the other extreme, I won’t be an oceanographer – the kind who explores […]

Are They Driving You Crazy?

I don’t know why women got a reputation for being bad drivers – unless pushing supermarket carts counts as driving. I think I’m a good driver. After all, I spent seven years driving in New York City. When I sang “New York, New York”, I changed the words. I sang “If you can drive it […]

Do You Remember Your School Daze?

I still have nightmares about being unprepared for school tests. Would dream analysts interpret that as meaning I don’t feel in control of my life or that I have a fear of failure? Maybe I just need to be better prepared for blood tests and eye tests. I went to an all girls’ school – […]

Are You A Good Sport?

I’m determined to be a good sport. I just can’t decide at what sport I’d be good. Although my parents were golfers, I didn’t inherit their talent. Addressing the ball, shifting my weight when I swung the club, keeping my head down – basically, I couldn’t keep my eye on the ball. My grandmother kept […]
