COLUMN: Making-up an excuse to omit Christmas list items
The other day my daughter was reading off her Christmas list. "My own room, my own laptop..." it began. I think she likes to start me off with a laugh to get me in a good mood. Either that, or she is perpetually optimistic. Further down the list, she gets a bit more realistic....

COLUMN: Baring it all on the house scene
Never had I felt so exposed before. Well, OK, when I bought a new swimsuit and went on a cruise to the Bahamas, but that is a different story. We are selling our house - the one all six of us are still living in - and people are coming over to look over every nook and cranny. Makes...

COLUMN: Friends, countrymen, lend me your (sympathetic) ears
I never thought I would have to ask for sympathy. Once upon a time when I was hurt, sick or even uncomfortably pregnant for 36 months (not all at once), friends/family/complete strangers would offer a chair/reassuring hug/good wishes. Now that I've been a mom for 13 years, zilch....

COLUMN: Busted! The perils of living in a small community
I like to develop my "mother mystique." When my children were really little, they used to be amazed when I would count down the seconds to when the traffic lights would turn green. They would audibly wonder how I knew they were opening the ceramic cookie jar when I was sitting in...
