Happy Birthday To Michael Richards; Feel Free To Celebrate With These Classic Seinfeld Bits.

Kramer cracks me up with his views on marriage.  Is it really a "man-made" prison and married couples are doing time?  Oh, and do you remember the classic episode where Kramer bought those skinny jeans and his whole world turned upside down?  Tight pants are the worst!

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.

There's another big date coming up this winter that will never come around again, and I read that brides are falling all over themselves to get the date booked the wedding day.  Can you guess it?

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?

Ladies, Ever Kicked A Guy’s Butt At Date Games?

I had a great date over the weekend, and it was his idea to go bowling.  We drank wine, we had dinner, and then we headed to the bowling alley for a spur-of-the-moment game.  He just happened to have his own ball and shoes in his car because he bowls in a league, so I was immediately intimidated and certain I was going to get my butt kicked.  But look what happened!  What in the heck?!

Can Life Be Simple For Moms? Nope!

So moms, how in the heck do you do it all?

If you're like me your day involves a wild frenzy of finding shoes, brushing hair, wiping syrup off faces, packing snacks, breaking up fights, reading books, finding the time to squeeze in a shower for yourself, and oh yeah...working!  And then we have to find time for relationships and grocery shopping and laundry and getting our eyebrows waxed.  When people ask us how we do it all, our best answer is, "I don't know!"  Somehow it's all set in motion and it just happens and we are along for the ride, doing our best to steer the ship.

Here's some advice that I ran across on simplifying your life as a mom, and also why I think it won't work!
