Despicable Me

My baby just turned 10 years old. (I can’t believe it.) And I took him on a date last night to dinner (Jason’s Deli salad bar) and to see Despicable Me. I got him and his sister (turning 13) really nice bikes for their birthdays. All four of my kids were born (as made semi-infamous […]

Naaman: does the answer lie in simple things?

At church last week, the lesson was about Naaman in 2 Kings in the Bible. I have discussed this story in my book (the manual) 12 Steps to Whole Foods. Naaman didn’t like what he saw as excessively simplistic advice, from the prophet, to go and bathe in the River Jordan to be healed of […]

Emma makes soccer team, Tif off sugar, Megan stung by swarm

Highlights from yesterday at my house. Emma was the original Green Smoothie Girl on this site when she was 11. (Anyone been here long enough to remember when she was the face on the site, not me?) She’s 14 years old, and yesterday she made the Timpanogos High School soccer team despite more girls trying […]

When you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think of me

That’s a line from a Taylor Swift song, by the way. I think Tim McGraw has given up the “ninety-nine cent heart attack” he sings about. Somebody on the GSG fanpage says he quit smoking a few years ago. My goodness, he looks ridiculous. I heard he lost 30 lbs for his tour. Not the […]
