Summer is almost here and with warm weather come – FEET!

FeetNow, most of us know not to wear flip flops in the office but in some offices, like mine, its okay to bare toes with a few precautionary steps.

Everybody take notice so your feet don’t cripple your career!

· Pedicures are a must, heels should be pumiced and toenails buffed.

· Wear sandals that fit; heels shouldn’t hang over the back and toes should grip the sidewalk.

· Hairy toes and legs aren't women sexy . . . or pretty!

· And, if you “smell feet” or someone says they “smell feet”, handle it immediately.

Feet are a touchy subject and very, very personal. And, quite frankly, most people don’t have pretty feet. If you are one of them, don’t expose them to the world. You don’t want to be remembered for your little piggies.

The Best Mother's Day Gift is Labor

Today is Mother's Day, it is my day to sit and command!

The way I see it, I went through labor, and now, I'd like my family to return the favor and give me some labor!

Actually, its tradition in my home to celebrate Mother's day with peace, quiet and most importantly, cooperation. It started a long time ago, when our daughter was little, my husband asked me "what would you like for Mother's Day?" Much to my surprise, my answer was "to be left alone!"

That's probably not the most "motherly" response, but you don't know my family. They're good people, but they're high maintenance.

My life is sandwiched in between a vegetarian (and I'm a meat eater) and a daughter who is BAJP (Black American Jewish Princess). The most they can do for me is Leave me Alone!

Nowadays, Mother's Day has evolved from Leave me Alone day to Personal Service day and I'm as happy as can be. For Mother's Day, I make a list of things I'd like done and they do it!

I encourage all mothers to make Mother's Day their own personal service day!
