Laundry Stripping

Oh yeah, let that title sink in…  laundry stripping… I know you are excited. This is going to be a very sexy post… all about dirty laundry! Ahh the life of a wife and mom. So hawt. As one of my friends commented when I said this was my new obsession, “Picturing you doing a sexy dance in your laundry room…” As you should… as you should. Anywho, here’s the story. I was at my wits end. Between the sour milk smell in some of the nugget’s onesies and the stank in......

One Of My Favorite Things

I am part of a bloggers group and they have been having a summer challenge… And I have been totally slacking off. In looking back on some of the topics, there was one I really wanted to write about… “Share Your Favorite Thing” it was called. They said “Pretend you are a celebrity and you are telling your fans all about the thing you cannot live without.” I will tell you the first thing that popped in my mind. TOMS Classics. Legit, these save the day all the time lately. Don’t know......

The 3six5 Denver Project

I was kindly asked to be a part of the 3six5 Denver project. It will be a diary of the year 2012, 365 days, 365 bloggers in 365 words. Very cool if you ask me. Here is part of my post for January 2nd. I was excited to post about the beginning of the year. It’s January 2. It’s a new day. A new year. So what are you waiting for?! Okay, well you can’t jump the hour and a half wait at Snooze. (Some things never change, right?) But I’ll take......

Chanukah  A Time For Re-Dedication

I work for the Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado and being a Jewish organization, we begin every meeting with a bissel Torah (a bit of Torah learning). We call them d’vars (though, the correct way to make d’var plural in Hebrew would be Divrei). A d’var is general a talk on a section of Torah. More often than not, our divrei are on current topics in Israel or America or relating to holidays or a teaching we recently heard or saw. This is the d’var I gave at our all staff meeting......

If you would like to start this journey with me by reading part one, HackerPocalypse 2011 – The Story, please feel free.

If this has happened to you, here are the things you need to know. First of all, though I am a very savvy web person, I think I was the victim of a spam email.

HackerPocalypse 2011 – The Story

Here is the first part of a two-part story. This is the story of HackerPocalypse 2011. I am a savvy online person. I can spot scams a mile away. I debunk chain letters and forwards. This scam was so insidious that I was caught in its web. If I was caught, you could be too. This first part is the story of what happened, the next blog will be about how to prevent it and what to do when it happens to you. As my cousin said, “There are two kinds of......

Finding Balance In Forgiveness, Bliss In Pure Happiness

I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness and bliss and balance lately. You find those moments where the world seems off kilter or flying past you. When we work all the time or rush through our lives, it can be hard to find the balance. And then last night I was saying the nightly prayers, the bedtime Sh’ma… just like I always do… every night… and I started to pay attention, again, to the words I was saying. You see when you read something every night it begins to become rote… easy…......

Advice To Women or How To Be A Bad Ass 101

I will argue with you if you tell me that a woman can’t do what a man can do… in general. But there are some very clear gender attributes (for lack of a better word). One of those is our female predilection for getting down on ourselves. We women are SO mean to ourselves sometimes!! And thus, we need some reminders. Here are three different sets of reminders. Two were aimed specifically at women and the last are from Amy Poehler’s speech at Harvard’s graduation. Why is this so important? Because sometimes......
