  • It was a normal day with nothing unusual happening. My daughter and I were getting ready to go out for a while to get away from the house. Just as we entered my car something told me to check my phone. Sure enough I had two text messages from my husband. Unfortunately, his car had broken down many miles from home. I called to hear the game plan. He needed me to help him get his car to our mechanic. I agreed to go collect him giving no thought as to what “getting the car to the mechanic” was going to involve.

  • While many adolescents look forward to summer vacation, it is not uncommon for them to quickly grow bored. Bored teens often turn to television and electronics. But, with a little encouragement, a teen can transform a bored brain into one that is healthy and active, and in turn, create a most memorable summer vacation. Activities that can keep your teen happy, fit and healthy include:
    Spend time as a family. Go on vacation or create “stay-cations” and explore your own community or state.

  • Home gardeners look forward to that first ripe tomato or ear of corn they pick from their carefully tended gardens. But after some vigorous gardening on a hot, humid day, you may wonder if it is all worth it.

  • About two years ago, we became caretakers of two cats when our youngest daughter moved back home to rebuild her life.
    Last year, she moved in with a friend who has two dogs -- and an allergy to cats. So, we agreed to take care of Target and Mohawk until our daughter lives in a more cat-friendly space.
    They’re old cats, probably 13- or 14-years old, which is between 63 and 66 in human years.
    They take a lot of naps.
    They also sometimes barf on the carpet (but rarely on the tile), and they sometimes sneeze on the windows and the furniture.
