Drinking from the garden hose

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts.

Planning to outlast your partner

The other day I heard a comedian say that a successful marriage is when one partner gets to watch the other partner die first. Yes, that is pretty morbid, but it is also true: Marriage vows even state "til death do us part."And most of the time, it is the wife who is…See More

"This is great, Lauren! LOL... I concur!  How about the fact that you actually remembered to take care of their little tooth?  How many mornings, I have awoken to my head slapping my forehead - you idiot! Always overpaying, I am afraid, bc…"

The going rate for the tooth fairy

I made the mistake of Googling the phrase "tooth fairy rates" the other day and I was frightened. Depending on the area of the country, some children are receiving anywhere from $5 - $13 per tooth. These are teeth, right? They aren't little nuggets of gold.…See More

My Mom is a pretty tech-savvy lady: She runs a brilliant blog, texts and shares photos, and she tweets more often than I do. All of this she learned on her own, and I am incredibly grateful for her willingness to be involved online. In her point of view, she is ready to interact with her grandchildren in whatever form of…

Paying for your future philosophy major

Posted on July 28, 2015 at 6:19am 0 Comments

In college I had a roommate that was a history major. I have nothing against history. History is important; we learn from our past; it's good to remember where you've come from.
