It seems like there’s an amazing new innovation popping up just about every time I flip on my computer.
There are so many neat ways to stay on top of your health and wellness commitments – and save you a few trips to the doctor. And maybe even save a life.
Ever hear of the Holmes & Rahe Social Readjustment Rating Scale? It may sound like something to do with refinancing your home ... and, in a roundabout way, it is. It’s a scale that measures the “stressfulness” of various life events, such as buying or remodeling a home, getting engaged, having a fight, getting pregnant, or taking a big college exam. Just reading the word stress seems stressful.
My 6-year-old son recently asked me what he should be when he grows up.
Usually, I am the one doing the asking, and his answer is invariably policeman, fireman or Army guy. If I suggest he follow his parental footsteps and become a doctor and/or a farmer, I usually got “No way!” response.

This past week, I’ve thought a lot about women in leadership roles.

This winter has been especially hard on skin, with prolonged sub-zero temps and wind. Then we come inside to a warm but dry home. The humidity readings of the indoor air are way down due to heating, so the water content of our skin evaporates, leading to very dry skin that can get irritated and bumpy.
I’ve told my son, Grant, that I have eyes in the back of my head so I can keep track of him. He had thoroughly inspected my scalp, but I’ve told him that these are invisible, but they are still there because I’m a mom.
Thanksgiving Day ... There is much to be grateful for: turkey with my favorite stuffing, smooth gravy, mashed potatoes, and between my in-laws and my family, I get to select from six different kinds of pie!
