giving thanks

I was running late for work the other morning, juggling a purse, laptop bag, coffee, yogurt, cell phone, security pass and who knows what else. The elevator doors were closing, so I stuck my leg through the opening and flung myself inside, agitated and flustered. A guy was standing there, and he offered to give me a hand with my stuff. Then he smiled and said something that hit a reset button in my harried brain: “Hey, things aren’t so bad—you’ve got breakfast and you’ve got a job. Try to see the positive side!” He was absolutely right. I have a roof over my head, I have heat, I have food, I have my health, I have clean clothes, I have family, I have friends. That makes me rich by almost…

family album

Mom: Tanya Son: Justin Rob (Dad): I’m the good cop and Tanya’s the bad cop. Tanya: What? Rob: I’m a big kid at heart. I enjoy being silly with him. You’re the one that comes in to lay down the law. Tanya: You can definitely put your foot down too, but you and Justin are really connected in a brotherly way. “Justin’s dad and I live in separate homes but we’ve told Justin that no matter what, we are a family. We’re dedicated to each other and we love each other. We still have meals together and we’re constantly in contact. We even have a text thread called ‘Family’ that’s just the three of us.”—TANYA“Tanya’s very strong, very reliable and very attentive. I can’t say I’m always on top of things, but I know she is.”—ROB“My…

tired-looking eyes

Step 1: Prevent Expert: Erin Gilbert, MD, NYC dermatologist • First things first, choose the right eye cream. If puffiness is your problem, opt for a lightweight gel. If your skin is dry, choose an emollient cream formula. • Store in the fridge—the cool temperature of the cream decreases puffiness. • Sleep on your back. This allows the fluid around your eyes to drain instead of accumulating underneath, which causes swelling as well as discoloration. • If you wake up with puffy eyes, try a jade roller. Gently move the small end from inner corner of eye outward toward temples. Then place the large end on brows and roll outward. Finally, roll large end up across forehead, ending at hairline. Each step increases lymphatic drainage at key points. • Avoid eating too much sugar, processed foods…

a holiday-ready kitchen

WRITE ON! Use dry erase tape and a marker to clearly label food, such as ingredients specifically intended for holiday prep (hands off!) or leftovers, so everyone knows what’s what. 3 Ways to Keep Counters Uncluttered 1 Relocate as much as humanly possible. Stash whatever you can in drawers, on shelves, in the pantry or even in the basement or garage temporarily. Really, the only appliances that should be out are the ones you use every single day (or that you plan on using for prepping the holiday meal). 2 Create a designated drop zone that’s not in the kitchen for stuff known to create clutter, like mail. 3 Purge! This is the perfect time to get rid of duplicates. You know you have extra spatulas lurking. Deep Freeze Food blogger and cookbook author Deb Perelman of…

‘how on earth are we going to pay for college?!?’

What kinds of loans are available to pay for college? The Direct Subsidized Loan (sometimes known as a Stafford Loan) allows students to borrow up to $5,500 their freshman year, $6,500 their sophomore year and $7,500 each their junior and senior years. If a student qualifies based on financial need, part of the loan can be subsidized, meaning that the U.S. Department of Education pays any interest that accrues while the student is in school and for the six-month postgraduation grace period. The Direct PLUS Loan for parents allows them to borrow up to the college’s cost of attendance minus any other financial aid received. Almost everyone qualifies for these two loans, and fixed interest rates for 2018-19 are 5% and 7.6%, respectively. Private loans, offered by banks and other financial…
