When you think you may be dying, none of this crap matters. Whether Amy Chua or Oprah or Dr. Spock or Dr. Sears agrees with you, how you raise your child is your/… Read full post »
Hey all--or should I say "Hola Todos"--all the people in Mexico, Peru, Brazil, and the rest of Central and South America who've emailed me after watching my film The Breast Cancer Diaries ("Diario de mi Cancer") on Discovery Health Latin America this week.
Fue un tiempo muy dificil--… Read full post »
I wanted to welcome everyone to my month, or as I can be found
saying these days, "Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month." I say
this tongue in cheek,or course, as I am a breast cancer 'survivor'
and I don't think there's anything happy about that.
But I do think it's amazing, and… Read full post »
I hate the Thanksgiving meal.
I don't mean the actual food – I love the turkey, gravy and all the fixings served up on special china plates in houses across America every last Thursday of November. It's not the mashed potatoes swaddled in butter or the sweet potatoes I despise –… Read full post »
I was in an airport recently, two hours early for my flight and
without a piece of anything to read. I went to the book store to
kill time and maybe find something to browse until my scheduled
I searched the novel covers and there--between Hillary Clinton’s, her husband Bill’s,… Read full post »
I was a 38 year old mother of 2, married, ate right, exercised, no cancer history, breast fed my kids, when on a Sunday morning in the shower doing my routine self breast exam I felt a lump.
5 years and a double mastectomy, dose dense chemotherapy, radiation and one-thous… Read full post »
Did you watch NBC's Farrah's Story? It replayed last night to honor Farrah, who died this week of cancer--which of course you already know.
I didn't watch it this week, but I did when it aired originally last month. On the one hand, I wanted to see it because&… Read full post »
The last time I went on a blind date I was 16 years old and stuck at a dinner table with a sweet young boy who scared me to death. Not that he was mean, or scary looking, or at all disagreeable--actually he was really nice. But he was a boy,… Read full post »
Warning: this is a rant.
I recently logged on to my internet and saw a headline that sparked my interest: The Truth About Balancing Children and Career.
Cool, I thought, maybe some wisdom from other real moms who've been there and figured something out I haven’t ? (That list is endless)
And what… Read full post »
This is the kind of thing that makes me crazy: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28046810. It is an article on how ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer now has his own column in a magazine.
I am so sick of people in power, people in public places, doing things that mere mortals get blasted for, like lying and… Read full post »
I have been blonde all my life.
I have endured the jokes and the taunts readily, since they were
always leveled by that old saying,
"Blondes Have More Fun". Of course, I have no idea if blondes really
do have more fun, but who cares. When it comes to having… Read full post »
As a new Open-Salon-blogger, I wanted to get in on my first "open call", the Thanksgiving Memory version.
I wanted to spill the beans on my holidays past--the food, the fights, the frantic way a family of 6 grew into an extended group of 20 plus, all who love to hate,… Read full post »
Ever since Janet Jackson flashed the world during her "wardrobe
malfunction" at the Superbowl Halftime show a few years ago, I have
been wary of all televised sports.
I can't keep my kids in a bubble during football/baseball/basketball seasons, though, because sports is a big part of my husband's lif… Read full post »
I have found myself verbally spanked by more than a few friends these days for my cautious, if not pessimistic, reaction to the recent election.
Let me just get one thing straight: I am happy. I really am.
