Chaos Chronicles Podcast 429: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

by Lian on September 7, 2011

I recorded the new Chaos Chronicles Podcast in my post -First -Day -of -School – Dropoff -for- Both Kids euphoria. Listen and hear the joy in my voice. I had to dial back the audio settings because I was so enthusiastic in the opening. I love my kids, I love summer and I love when summer’s over. Now, it’s Wednesday, the house is quiet and I am ready for Fall, even if it’s 105 today.

On the Show This Week:

September Resolutions: Making some plans for Fall that include a little self-improvement or continuing education? I was flipping through the Pasadena Community College flyer for some Spanish classes and I found a few other “seminars” that raised my suspicions.

Six Things Every Teen Wishes their Parent Knew: Great advice from Vanessa Van Petten, the teens at and their new book  “Do I get My Allowance Before or After I’m Grounded?“  Plus, you added your own thoughts and commentary worthy of mention. Thanks, Chaos Crew!

News in a Minute: Regis Philbin; Dogs in High Places; and Chaz Bono

Plus, My To Do List! And a To Do List for you: Don’t forget to enter the Do -It- All Moms essay contest at

I’m off to speak to the Rotary Club of Pasadena, then work on the Helen TV pitch, then to my first PTA meeting of the year. Good thing I walked the dog early.

Embracing my Chaos, Lian
