Happiness is what counts for Grandmama

I baby-sat two of my grandchildren last Saturday from about 3:30 to 10:30 p.m. I had 28 duplicate boards (decks of cards in plastic holders separated by hands) that had to be premade for a bridge game in which everyone in the United States who plays duplicate at a certain time will play the same hands. I will be the director of that game and must put the hands together for the players. After the game, the players will get a booklet that will tell them how the experts bid and played the same hands.

Adventures in Parenting: On Miley and the VMAs

Pop culture has never been my thing, except of course, when I was Miley Cyrus' age and younger. In fact, the older I get, the wider the hip chasm seems to stretch between my 19, 12 and 9 year old sons and me. This is why lately I've made more concerted efforts to tune in to their social worlds and the outside influences vying for their attention.

Soldiering on and staying strong

The last time I wrote a column for this newspaper, it was about how my happy family carried on a tradition of picking strawberries - just me, my husband and my son. Little did I know just weeks later he would ask me for a divorce.

So how does a 14-year relationship, a 7-year marriage, die in such a short period of time? How do you go from a happy family of three to a single mom of a 3-year-old? I can't answer those questions, and honestly, neither can my estranged husband. I believe if you truly love someone, the ...
