Written for law school applicants, but important for anyone embarking on an important writing project. 
The editor on your shoulder is not your friend: she's an obstacle standing between you and a powerful law school essay.

Create a Schedule: Time flies. If you start your preparation (as you should) 3-4 months before your test date, that time will stretch in front of you, filled with opportunity. Then, one day you’ll look at everything you want to get done and start to panic, wondering where the time went. The best way to avoid this common experience is ... Read More

Ten years ago, my mother had a triple bypass and was encouraged to switch to olive oil. Olive oil, she was told, had a positive impact on cholesterol. But, she should be careful not to eat too much of it. When we questioned t...

I believe I should drink a bottle of it. I've lost 12 pounds in six months at Mom&Dad's.
Actually, though, that comes from all the meat they've got around here. Vegetarian women gain weight initially. Gotta get back on the veggie burger wagon.

The way this project has grown in just a few years is amazing. But, time is running out (4 days to go!) and there are still families on the waitlist. If you're looking forward to a wonderful meal with your loved ones this Thanksgiving, can you help another family do the same?
A parenting community for imperfect parents.

Story
Tagline
Mom, writer, marketer, retired lawyer, teacher and social worker at heart rolling it all into everything I do.
Introduction
Radical conservative and/or flaming liberal, depending on who's making the assessment.  I value logic and compassion and don't believe that they're inconsistent.

I've been a teacher, a lawyer, a writer, a stay-at-home mom, a marketer, a newspaper reporter, a curriculum developer, run a non-profit, poured coffee, tossed salads, picked up old shingles in the hot sun and been a Daisy Girl Scout leader.  I read The Inarticulate Society and Janet Evanovich's latest novel with equal enthusiasm.  And I'm really, really, really crazy about my kid.

I've never written a negative review of a medical provider before, but this experience was beyond anything I could have imagined. I went in because of sudden, unexplained swelling around my neck that was putting pressure on my throat and was constrictive whenever I swallowed or inhaled. The doctor ordered a CT of my lungs to rule out the possibility of air leakage from a collapsed lung. I heard him receive results on the telephone outside my room shortly after 9 p.m. No one came into the room for another two hours, at which point he "reassured" me that I did not have a collapsed lung (never thought I did) and prepared to discharge me. When I asked about the neck swelling and pressure on my throat that I came in for, I was told that they couldn't address everything and I should contact my regular doctor in the morning. The nurse, Jill, said, "He may have to investigate further, though I have no idea what he'd even look for." I was sent home around midnight, very concerned about the increasing pressure on my throat. Jill advised me to come back if it got worse; when I reminded her that it had been getting worse the whole time I'd been there and asked how I was to know at what point it would be serious enough to return, she shrugged. Swelling continued to worsen overnight and make swallowing increasingly difficult. When I saw a doctor from my own physician's practice the next day, she and another doctor both expressed considerable surprise that I had been sent home without steroids to control the swelling until my follow-up appointment. While the complete disregard of the issue that brought me in was both frightening and frustrating, the worst part of the experience was the nurse, Jill, who grew ruder and more condescending as my symptoms worsened and, by the time I was discharged, actually seemed to be making a conscious effort to increase my anxiety.
