Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Gonna Send 5 Copies to My Mother

Guess which of these headlines from the cover of the April issue of Good Housekeeping goes with my essay on page 217:
WIN! A Maid for a Year!

6 Metabolism Mistakes

America's Sweetheart Shares Her Painful Past

"She Drives Me Crazy!"

The answer is none! And yet somehow, all! This is my third time being featured in the magazine, by the way. They are very nice to me, the Hearsts. Last month they featured my friend Alice. You never know who will pop up there. Why don't you subscribe?

In the meantime, you can find the April issue on sale now at every neighborhood grocery store in the country but mine, apparently. I happened across a copy in the drugstore yesterday, and flipped it open to see my husband's smiling face. My first thought was how his mom would have busted with pride. The cover of Rolling Stone magazine wouldn't have phased her. But a picture of her golden, impossible boy in Good Housekeeping? Big time.

So this one's for you, Millie. Thanks for letting me have him.

How exciting! Can't wait to read it.

Since I'm a subscriber I'll have to run out and check my mail. (Yes, apparently I've become their key demographic.)

I just read your article today, and it was great. I could list a few similar scenarios from our house.

Again, congratulations!

Hi! my name is Svetlana and I am from Ukraine.This is about you article "Call Mrs. Fix-it".I can not stress enough how angry I was reading it! How dare you to compare tragedy in Chernobyl and you stupid washing mashine Do you know how many people died in there? How many children was born with birth deffects? Children with canser and leukemia waiting for their turn to die?It was a much bigger tragedy than 911 Why don`t you compare your washing mashine to what happened on September 11 Shame on you! Or you just mention Chernobyl to show off (Hey I know what it is! Do you?)What is your biggest problem-house selling?
