    Picking a favorite post is really hard! I'll try: For funny posts, I'd choose "Another one bites the dust" (2009) written after a second pet hermit crab inexplicably died. I know pet death is not a fu more »

    Okay, 20 facts about me and my blog, in no particular order: 1. I love pizza. I'd eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I don't. But I would. 2. I grew up in Connecticut, but I've been liv more »

    I what Micromom suggests, and also remind kids to never put their faces in the dog's face, never bother a dog while it's eating, and for gosh sake, don't pull on the fuzzy long tail! I love dogs to bu more »

    Aw, hugs to all of you! I hope things go better as the day goes on. Now that my kids are in school, I sometimes miss the days when we were all here together. Then I hear stories like yours and decide more »

    Well said, Micromom. It's like anything else about parenting -- you have to do what works/is best for you. (This from a Jennifer who learned to laugh that so many of us were out there -- 8 on my dorm more »

    I work from home as a writer (I also tutor occasionally). My kids think "what I do at work" is Facebook, email, and a few community boards. When I show them bylines and published pieces, they're like more »

    I'm heading off to the grocery store in a few minutes, and will probably also buy a few lottery tickets (hey, you gotta be in it to win it, right?). Then I'll spend the afternoon daydreaming about how more »

    I apologize for using the word "gross." I can understand that it is something practiced in many cultures around the world, and didn't mean to disrespect that. I was thinking about the germ factor, too more »
