FLC Guest Posts: Resolutions








For most of us, January is the time for new beginnings – the time we decide to make changes to improve our health, finances and relationships.  Every year I’m full of good intentions.  Full of them – as in a long list of changes I want to make.  Each year the list looks suspiciously similar to the year before and the year before, which leads me to the natural conclusion that I don’t stick to my resolutions.

Family Legacy Center Post: Family Dinners

I’m over at the Family Legacy Center today, talking about how I’ve made the extra effort to have family dinners multiple times a week – as a part of our family’s legacy.


I watched a lot of television when I was growing up, especially the family shows like, The Brady Bunch, Leave It to Beaver and Eight Is Enough.  My favorite scenes took place at the dinner table.  Whether it was a family feud or a cheerful gathering, I was enthralled.  I romanticized the “iconic family dinner,” probably because my family rarely sat down and ate together.  My dad worked nights and my mom dined with him when he got home, which was always after my brother and I had gone to bed.  For some reason, at our house the family dinner was never a priority.  This is probably why I’d get so excited whenever I was invited to dinner at friends’ homes.

Before I had children, I vowed that when I did, I’d cook every night and we’d eat together as a family.  So I was very surprised when I realized that this didn’t often occur in our house.  And believe me, I have tons of excuses – some good, some lame.  Suffice it to say, my family was so not The Brady Bunch.

September Happenings

It’s been a while since I wrote a “catch-up” post about what I’m doing, reading and watching.  This post is also a partial link-up with Mama Kat’s World’s Greatest Writing Workshop.    I didn’t have a whole lot to write about on the new fall television line-up, so I decided to combine the two.  If you’re visiting from Mama Kat, please forgive me (but I hope you stick around, so I can learn more about you).


Writing prompt:  Share the fall lineup you’re looking forward to.

Last year, I wrote a post all about the new fall television shows that was featured at Chick Lit Plus.  I did some research for that article and thought I had the winners and losers figured out.  I was wrong, so I’ve saved myself the trouble (and time) this year.  I’m going to wait a few weeks before watching anything new – to see what the critics and my fellow bloggers (who are usually attuned to the most buzz-worthy shows) like.  I’ve also been bruised one too many times by shows that I love getting axed way too soon.  With just a cursory glance at Entertainment Weekly’s site, my only interest at this point is Bad Judge (I love Kate Walsh) and Madame Secretary (love political dramas).  We shall see.  I am, however, very excited for my returning favorites!!!!  In no particular order; Revenge, The Good Wife, The Goldbergs, Nashville, Blue Bloods and ParenthoodContinue reading September Happenings
