    Saturday movie review: 'Austenland'

    Rate the grandparent gig

    Because I write on topics related to a role near and dear to the hearts of many — that of grandparenting — I'm honored by the people who reach out to me through comments, private messages and emails to share their experience as a grandparent. Many times grandparents write to share joyous news, moments that warmed their hearts. Many other times, grandparents write to express sadness and heartbreak related to difficult situations involving their grandchildren.

    Care for yourself: 16 ways grandparents should follow their own advice

    We grandparents regularly show love and encouragement to our grandchildren. Yet how often do we turn that steady flow of love and encouragement on ourselves? If you're like me, not often.

    Time for that to change.

    Following are sixteen ways to nurture and care for yourself in ways you likely encourage your grandchildren to care for and about their selves.

    Saturday movie review: 'About Time'

    I wanted so badly to see ABOUT TIME starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy when it played in theaters late last year. Unfortunately, time was not on my side, and I ended up having to wait for it to appear on DVD and Blu-ray.

    About Time

    Which it did, much to my delight, March 4. I immediately had it in my hands — thank you, Netflix! — and playing on my television for my hubby and me.
