10 Tips for Blog Writing
I have a confession to make: my mother dressed me into my 30s. Yes, you read that right. I made no real decisions on clothes.
I picked up a new pair of jeans or two if I had the need. I'd buy my own underwear. I bought some Fresh Produce dresses and some clothes from some travel wear catalog in the last years of my marriage. Mostly though, clothes came from my mother or my older sister.
Then she stopped, and that was okay, because I fell into "jeans plus T-shirt" or "jeans plus turtleneck or sweatshirt."
I'd have some mild concern when faced with the idea that I needed to get dressed up for something. I owned "that dress that looks nice on you," which I wore to a bar mitzvah for a cousin and every other occasion that required a dress for over a decade. I bought a suit that I loathed from JC Penney for a talk I gave on setting up blogs. Cheap. Fit. Done. I bought my keynote dress for Voices of the Year with advice from my child and ordered it online. I sent in measurements. I received a dress back. Done.
I hate clothes shopping. I don't like putting something on, trying to figure out whether it fits, whether it is right for my body, whether I look ridiculous in it. My brain turns into a weird heady buzz in a clothing store. I try on a few things and then leave. Whatever. Jeans. Shirt. Safe. I can't get out of there fast enough.
Then, last summer, I had a strange bit of dissatisfaction with my clothes. I blame it on all the Stitch Fix people. Well, that and all the other "box of the month" clubs out there.
Darn it! I wanted a box, too. Not food, because I never saw the right box for me. Not beauty supplies, because if there is something I do less of than clothes shopping, it is makeup. Not crafts—I like them, but it just seemed wrong. Yarn clubs? I love yarn, but my favorite yarn club people do wool yarns, and I have a wool allergy.
Two Cups of Milk May Be Ideal for Preschoolers
(Reuters Health) – Preschoolers who drink three or more cups of milk a day may get a small height boost, but they’re also more likely to be overweight or obese, according to a new U.S. study.
The results, based on nearly 9,000 children, support current recommendations that preschoolers consume two one-cup servings of milk a day, the authors say.
“Overall, we were most struck by the heavier BMI (body mass index) among four-year-old children drinking high volumes of milk,” said Dr. Mark DeBoer, a pediatrician at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville who led the study.
“Given the country's current obesity epidemic, we felt as though the data supported the current recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, recommending that children drink two servings of milk daily - but restrain them from drinking higher volumes because of the potential for unhealthy weight gain,” he told Reuters Health by email.
