I’ve Got the Magic In Me!

Do you know this song? It’s called Magic, by B.o.B. If that doesn’t turn your bad mood around, listen to this OTHER song also called Magic, by Selena Gomez, too. Sometimes when I’m in here on my PC working, I play Magic and bust out all my dance moves. (The ones that embarrass my kids.) […]

The house that BobDad’s building

My former husband nicknamed my parents BobDad and MomPam in the 80’s. I just went down to return my dad’s Mini Cooper and pick my car up in the shop. And look what my dad was doing, to the side of his house! It’s a shed, with the top level being a grandkids’ playhouse. Cool, […]

What’s for dinner, Mom?

I used to get asked, “What do you eat in a day?” all the time, but since the blog is searchable, you can find my answers to that question, in specific. So I don’t get asked that QUITE as often—just by new readers. But just as an example, tonight I made Indian Dahl (last recipe […]

Borrowing Dad’s Mini-Cooper . . . and his attitude

I kinda wrecked my car. Today my dad met me at the auto body shop where the owner and I are now on a first-name basis, since this is the third time this year I’ve had pointless parking-lot fender benders. My dad came so he could lend me his cute yellow Mini-Cooper for a couple […]

Help! I’m in Zucchini Hell!

I have this kind of random list of questions to ask God when I get on the other side. Some of them are The Big Questions. Why do 15-year old crackheads get pregnant so easily when my friend Jamie, who would be a world-class mother, can’t? Why are people supposed to make huge decisions like […]

Amorphous Blob of Diet Pepsi Jelly-Sausage

Just got back from the Bay Area–yummy raw food at Café Gratitude in Berkeley (photo below). Taught a really fun class in Oakland (will post photos as soon as someone sends me some–since I forgot my camera), so great to meet y’all who came! So Laura (my best friend for 30 years) and I were […]

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 […]

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 […]

Independence Day, part 2 of 2

So I told you my dad is the most rad dude ever. He is unfailingly positive. In fact, if you’re grumpy, he just gets MORE peppy and smiley. He epitomizes the idea that work is a blessing, because he embraces hard work. Forgive me if I’ve told this story before. As a teenager, my dad […]
