  • It saddened me very much when I learned that Lisa Robin Kelly had died, the girl who played Eric Forman's sister on That '70s Show. Sure, she's not a household name, and she hasn't acted in anything we've seen since she got booted from the show. Still.
  • My mom has always said that the state of my room is a direct reflection of the state of my mind. My bedroom was always a pigsty growing up. So you can imagine how I felt on the inside. Teen angst to the max.
  • It's always fun to "remember when."

    This past weekend I met up with some friends some high school. We still stay in touch through occasional phone calls and Facebook, but that's much different than meeting up in person. I prefer in person.
  • Back-to-school commercials bum me out.

    I'm not ready for "back to school." And as much as I love fall boots and not having to keep up with pedicures - as much as I love fall itself - I'm not ready for it.
  • I have a love/hate relationship with exercise. I used to work out in a gym every day for two hours. That was mostly due to my boyfriend at the time, who was obsessed with looking perfect. Once I broke up with him, I also canceled my gym membership. I haven't remained consistent with an exercise program since then.
  • I don't really watch many current TV shows. I've never gotten into any of them to the point that I know what night anything is on. I don't turn the TV on at all if I'm home during the day - minus some cartoons for the kids. I don't turn it on for myself until nighttime, when I watch reruns of Friends, Seinfeld, Frasier, The Golden Girls, and Cheers. I loved these shows when they were first on, and I love them now. I wish networks would come out with more sitcoms like these, and fewer reality shows, which seems to be the norm.
  • May is Mental Health month.

    Mental illness is such an important issue, and one that is close to my heart. I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. This is something, that, not too long ago, I kept pretty quiet about...and there are still people who think I should keep it to myself. Not talking about something doesn't make it go away.
  • I am about to drop a major bombshell:

    I am not perfect.

    Whew. It felt good to get that off my chest. My kids are not perfect, either - they sort of inherited some of my genes. I hear some moms talk about their kids and it can make me feel like a bad mom. Moms who claim their kids never eat hot dogs or drink Kool-Aid. Moms who state that their children don't watch cartoons or play with certain toys, because they're detrimental somehow. Moms who seem perfect.
  • "Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent." - Victor Hugo

  • My mom has always told me, do what you love and the money will follow. I never believed her...because it never happened. It never happened, until a few months ago.
  • The dictionary defines "forgive" as "to grant pardon from or remission of an offense or debt." Sounds easy enough, right?
  • Opposites attract. Or so said Paula Abdul and Skat Kat. I'm pretty sure a famous scientist said it, too, someone perhaps with more credibility than Skat Kat. Anyway...I'd like to believe in that theory.
