Protect Your Kids from MRSA

With fall sports in full swing, equipment cleanliness and item-sharing on and off the field may get overlooked between carpools, homework and bedtime.  But, skin infections like MRSA, a potentially life threatening antibiotic resistant Staph infection, are the cause of 56 percent of all infectious disease outbreaks in competitive sports in the U.S.  It’s important …

#Mamavation Monday: Where I Go to Work . . . .

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.  What’s worse: this happens to me a lot.  I’m a Monday morning quarterback when it comes to dieting and I usually give up come the next day.  Now. I could either keep up this cycle (which doesn’t seem as destructive as, say, 5 years ago) or I can …

Tiger Suit by K.T. Tunstall

k.t. tunstall

I was lucky enough to get a copy of KT Tunstall’s latest CD, Tiger Suit (released Oct 6th) so I could review it on the blog.  I don’t consider myself a die-hard Tunstall fan.  In fact, I’ve mostly heard her name bandied about (in conversations or articles about ‘serious’ and ‘talented’ artists) and I’ve heard …

Moms Making it Happen: Community Children’s Theater in Laie

A curious thing has happened in my community for the past two spring and fall public school breaks. Some moms teamed up before the break to write an original play and then spend the week-long break producing it, featuring the elementary school aged children of Laie. The first production, during Spring 2010, was Peter Panipopo, …

> Last week’s #mamavation post was more of a plea to the sistahood to let me in.  I blogged, I tweeted, I pledged and @bookieboo notified me that I was in.  YESSSSS!  Now comes the work.  To the right, you see my newly pedicured toes on the scale. Yes, I’m posting my weight (gasp!) and …

From Nutrisystem Updates to Mamavation Mondays

I missed my last Nutrisystem update.  My total loss for a month was 9lbs and I was feeling good even though I was more than a little worried about what would happen when I go back to meal prep on my own.  Combine the end of the Nutrisystem gravy train with the hub heading out …

Review of The Definitive Twitter Guide: Making Tweets Work for Your Business by Shannon Evans

twitter guide

A few months ago, I dragged my mother (a woman in her late 60s) onto Facebook.  She has a hard time getting used to it.  In fact, she’d like to delete her account but she doesn’t know how.  Unlike my mom, businesses need to use social media to build relationships, engage with potential customers, and …
