Today Only! Celebrate National Mom’s Nite Out with Papa Murphy’s Pizza! #PapaMurphysMNO

Have I mentioned that I don’t like to cook? That the mere thought of preparing dinner on a busy school night sends me off the deep end? Have I mentioned that I work from home, drive a carpool, and have a kids in a multitude of activities? Probably only about a thousand times, right?!...

I’m often on the prowl for something yummy to eat. I like to nibble. And gnaw. And gum. And chew on tasty morsels. Not all the time. But when I get a craving for something, I need it nwo. I usually eat savory and salty snacks, but not always. Lately I have had a...

Old Neighborhood? New Community? Where Should You Buy?

My children’s idea of compromise is easy. If they both have their hearts set on playing with a toy, they will both agree, after some hemming and hawing, to take turns with a toy. One child will play with a toy for 20 minutes. Then the other child will get a turn. Easy peasy....
