You're a riot, Molly. Did you ever notice that on cooking shows they have the unfinished product, the finished product and the work-in-progress product. What home cook does that?? If I screw up on my dish, my family is still going to have to eat it--I can't pass it off to the camera crew and make another.

"Lose the drama," hah! Could have been the mantra of everyone who was within earshot of my voice!

@newdaynewlesson I can think of so many people to whom I should forward this list--but I won't. I will RT, however, and hope at least most of them read it.

We ate dinner together most nights while I was growing up...and the TV was always on. We chatted until my father would yell, "Shh, shh, Israel!!" and everything would have to stop so that he could hear whatever was being said about Israel. It kind of became a family joke, but that pretty much sums up our family dynamic. My own family's dinners, especially Shabbat dinners, were totally different: no TV, and a lot of discussion, and of course, not all of it was pleasant. One thing we did love doing on Shabbat was going around the table to say what our favorite thing of the week was. When my son was three, he said the same thing every week for a month: "Going to see "Babe" with Mom." Boy, do I miss those days. Family meals are so important in maintaining the integrity of the family. They really emphasize the family unit. We no longer eat together as a family all that often because we are scattered throughout the country. But when we do, it is still something I know my boys (men) still absolutely love.

So true. I think we sometime leave our manners at the keyboard, and behave very differently online than we would IRL. It's easy and it's (practically) anonymous. Poor analogy, but its a little like picking your nose in your car. You imagine no one is looking, and you won't be found out, but there are windows all around.

margieclayman Preparation is key. If I have enough grilled, roasted or steamed veggies around, I am less likely to snack on something less healthful. It does take a lot of advance planning, but it definitely pays off.

Loved this. The sad thing is that we cannot be alone anymore. Waiting in line at the Post Office, at the market, even when reading a book--our minds are so full of "stuff" that it becomes impossible not to want to TELL someone else. We can never just enjoy the moment. Oh wait...I think I feel a blog post coming on!
