I just got home from seeing “A Quiet Place” and I am typing this as quietly as I can.
In last week’s article I wrote about changing your story to help you accomplish your New Year goals. This week I am going to explain how to go about changing your story.
In this new Star Wars movie, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Rey has found Luke Skywalker, but he fears the great power within her and refuses to train her. While on the other side of the galaxy the rebels are in trouble and Kylo Ren is still conflicted. So not much new going on here.
Every year it seems like the holidays just blow-by with the hustle and bustle and are gone before we know it. This year, with a five-year-old, I want to slow down and give meaning to the season. I want her to learn that Christmas isn’t just about the presents and teach her about love for oth…
Something I am thankful for every day is books. I’ve been reading a lot of really good books lately. I’m rereading “Harry Potter” with my book club and a new Brandon Sanderson book just came out. I love when I stumble upon a new book that I enjoy just as much as my favorites.
The holidays are such a great end to the year. They give us the opportunity to give thanks for what the year has brought us and to show love to others. It’s fun to participate in Thanksgiving traditions like saying what we are thankful for around the table or sharing what we are grateful for…
Two weeks into the session, and we’re off to a very busy start in the Utah State Legislature! Legislators have filed a record number of bills this year, and below are just a few of the major issues we have been involved with so far.
Why will a kid eat French fries he found under his car seat, but won’t touch a sandwich if the crust hasn’t been cut off, or if he can see a sliver of lettuce clinging to the bread?
Sorry, Donald Trump, even if you are elected president, you won’t be boss. The world already has a boss—social media. The internet is in charge of the world. And we pretty much march lockstep with whatever is trending on twitter or going viral on YouTube or receiving precious buzz on line.
Looking back there are several things I regret about my life. These regrets include: having high expectations for Greek yogurt, accidently clicking on a video which taught twerking to senior citizens, downloading candy crush and saying right out loud in front of gossipy witnesses how my son …
Really, I am much too busy to write anything today, because as you are probably aware, this is the Christmas season and I have a lot of Christmas stuff to do. For one thing, I have to find some tinsel.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful tradition where we gather friends and family around the table. This simple act reminds us why we’re grateful we don’t actually live with all these people.
If you have the internet or a Walmart store, then you are most certainly aware of the heroic efforts made by daring manufacturers to provide us with items which will fulfill needs we never even knew we had.
Charlie has teeth marks where he received a very painful bite. The little boy sobbed dramatically while explaining the horrible agony he was called upon to endure. There was no blood involved in this excruciating injury. The only fluid on the little guy’s forearm was slobber.
Much has been written about the self-centeredness of today’s youth. But how are adolescents to learn compassion and kindness when they are being raised by callous parents like my friend, Caroline?
Even though I have been way too busy to go through a midlife crises, my children think I’m old. I try to explain to them how “old” and “mature” are not synonymous. I have matured, maybe not gracefully, but the following indicators suggest I am more mature than any of these children inhabitin…
Last week I walked in to the Ballard city offices and city secretary and recorder Kaelyn Meyers handed me a copy of the Standard and there in huge type was the headline of the story about Shopko having their grand opening ceremony in Roosevelt - not Ballard.
If all the liposuction billboards and “Be your most beautiful self through expensive plastic surgery” signs are any indicator, there must be a lot of people willing to be sliced or sucked into a more attractive form.
Snails are not allowed on the floor of Miss Lexy’s first grade classroom. This is a new rule created out of necessity when several of the aquatic creatures escaped from McKenzie’s desk.
Colors exploded from hanging flower pots up and down the historic Victoria, British Columbia street. The warm sea breeze had followed our ferry ride from Port Angeles in Washington State, across the Strait of Juan De Fuea to Canada. What a great start to our trip with two of our children and…
My personal reflects are so sluggish, I am seldom capable of successfully swatting a fly which is buzzing around my head or trying to walk on the deviled eggs. I do, however, admit to wanting the bothersome insect dead, gone, lifeless and away from the potato salad and watermelon.
I believe in a free market system where the market is driven by what the consumer wants and needs. One size or type of service does not fit all. For these reasons I am a supporter of charter schools.
Technology supposedly streamlines our lives making us more effective, efficient and productive. Then along came texting end emojis. Every face to face encounter is now interrupted while we tap tap tap on a tiny keyboard. How inefficient, unproductive and wasteful can you get?
