Hart: There's no place like home - especially when it's a mess
My house has never looked better. In fact, I've never seen it like this. Every single room is perfectly tidy. There is no clutter anywhere. Every paint scratch has been touched up, every floor is clean. Every dish is put away, and each hairdryer and similar appliance (with three girls,...

'Jersey Boys' -- oh, what a night
The award-winning show "Jersey Boys" is about to leave Chicago. So, I decided to get tickets for myself and my girls, ages 13, 10 and 8, to attend a matinee. "Jersey Boys" is, of course, the Broadway smash about the rise of that crooning quartet called the Four Seasons. The experience...

Fighting flu in my house
When it comes to germs or bacteria, I'm just not much of a worrier. Generally if food drops on the floor and the dog doesn't get it first, I consider it still OK for the kids. On the rare occasion when my children get sick, I figure "they'll get over it." And I've heard that children...

Please, no fundraisers
When I was a kid, I used to color rocks and sell them door-to-door. I usually did pretty well with that. Sometimes I would concoct knickknacks with yarn and hawk those, too. And when it came to selling Girl Scout cookies, I was the champ three years running. But a fundraiser for...

Don't worry about Obama's speech
Recently on "The Dennis Miller Show," a radio caller argued that we need to tax the very rich even more. To paraphrase, Miller told him: Hey, I'm probably one of those guys. What more do you want from me? Caller: I don't want anything from you. Miller: Meet me at a cafe, bring your...

I am woman, hear me talk
I watched my three daughters sitting on our trampoline. It was late on a sunny afternoon the day before school started earlier this week. The girls, ages 13, 10 and 8, were simply talking. Endlessly -- about everything and about nothing, about feelings and dreams and about the end...

Women 'attached' to combat units
And there she was in all her glory: GI Jane on the front page of this past Sunday's New York Times. An American soldier in Iraq, huge assault rifle in her arms, a woman on a mission. Maybe it's because I have three young daughters that I shuddered. No doubt this is an incredibly...

Welcome to hormone wars
I did it again. Racing through the store, I grabbed an item I needed, only to find out I'd paid for less. In other words, one doesn't want to be around my house when I get up early and discover "fat-free half-and-half" in my refrigerator.

Too heavy a burden
In the classic Hollies song, "He Ain't Heavy, He's my Brother," the group sings: "The road is long With many a winding turn That leads us to who knows where ... But I'm strong Strong enough to carry him He ain't heavy, he's my brother So on we go His welfare is of my concern No...

Our 'feeling' culture lets emotions rule
I'm often intrigued by the conversations I overhear when I am having my hair cut. OK, I admit that it's something of a guilty pleasure to read People magazine while listening to various discussions among people I don't know, and finding out what they are concerned about and interested...

Health benefits drive job search for unemployed
The Chicago Sun-Times headline read, "Job Seekers Putting Health Benefits First." The story last Sunday chronicled a divorced woman in her mid-40s, college educated, presumably healthy, who lost her job last year. Right now she is a contract employee without health insurance. As...

Love is 'a unity'
Marriage seems to be taking quite a hit in recent weeks. "Jon and Kate Plus Eight," after Jon's involvement with a young woman, will apparently soon be "Kate Plus Eight." Then there's Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark ("Don't cry for me, Argentina") Sanford and the strange odyssey...

For family viewing, 'Lost' is real find.
Who knew that television could draw a family together? Seriously. I generally eschew TV, not because I'm a snob but mainly because I feel I don't feel I have the time to become engaged in unfolding or ongoing fictional dramas. (With four kids, I have enough real ones!) In spite of...

Childhood lessons help ease divorce pain
In a few days, I'll mark the fifth anniversary of the afternoon I watched my husband finally walk out of our family life after 17 years of marriage. This time, he wouldn't return to it. The kids were 10, 8, 5 and 3 when he left. So many folks over the years, both men and women, have...

What's up with the mom-and-paparazzi?
My sister was the first of us five kids to graduate from college. It was the 1970s, and I was in attendance to see her walk across the stage. Good thing, too: It turned out that although my father was shooting pictures, he was doing so, it was later discovered, without film. The only...
