Women Expect Men to Be Good With a Lawn Mower — And What Else?

Growing up in a small town in Nebraska I was close to my family, and there were certain things I always expected my dad to know how to do.  He was always there fixing things with his handy drill, landscaping the yard with his trusty riding lawn mower, and grilling ribs on Sundays.  He was just the go-to guy for that kind of thing.

Is Less Sleep Better?

It seems like the need for 8 hours of sleep has been drilled into our heads our entire lives, but that recommended amount of sleep for adults may be changing.

Is it possible that 8 isn't great?

Would You Pick A Certain Day To Get Married Because The Date Is Cool?

Do you geek out about numbers at all? I remember 7-7-07 and 8-8-08 being big days for weddings, and maybe some c-sections too. Happy sixth birthday to those kids in a few weeks.

What If We Had A 3-Day Work Week?

This story may not have quite the impact if it was coming from a video-game-playing dude in his twenties who spent most of his time on the couch eating chips.

But it's coming from a guy with big ambitions who heads a multi-billion dollar company, and is the second-richest person in the world behind Bill Gates.

Carlos Slim is saying we should only be working three days out of the week.  Great!  Now what's the catch?

Stress Can Make You Gain 11 Pounds Per Year

Something tells me us gals worry more about stress-eating than you fellas do.  If we get fat, we have something to blame it on!

Since stress-eating usually involves comfort foods like pizza, cheeseburgers, and chocolate cake, that packs on about a pound a month and eleven pounds per year those experts say.

I was a fat kid and part of my stress now involves worrying about being fat again, so this bit of news makes me feel like the problem is compounded.  Stress makes me want to starve and eat at the same time!

It's not just the foods themselves that cause the weight gain.  There could be something else going on with stress that makes us add the LB's.

I Think I Have Tech-Elbow

 

Does anyone else's elbow hurt?

Mine started hurting a few weeks ago and I passed it off as a freak injury that probably happened when I was picking up the 2-year old to give her a smooch and she wiggled free and twisted my funny bone.  But it won't go away and it's getting worse and I made a huge mistake in Googling my symptoms.

Just say no to medical Googling!  It's always a can of worms better left sealed up because it always comes back with horrible possibilities and then tells us to go to the doctor.  Maybe we should start with the doctor.  But I'm pretty sure he will tell me I have 90-degree-computer-and-smart-phone elbow.  You too?

‘#SchoolisCool’ Back To School Event Coming To Tyler’s Harvey Hall

The farthest thing from our kids' mind right now is school; they're focused on summer vacation plans, swimming, hanging out with friends and just being kids! Right now, we're basically one-third of the way through summer and pretty soon we'll be buying school supplies and uniforms and packing their lunch to send them off to continue learning.
