Tell us about dad's domestic trauma and you could win a $100 gift certificate from -- and a video from Globalstage to keep your child busy while you use it. -

Wow! The last time I felt this happy I was standing
outside a packy in the capital city of Newfoundland, clutching a winning scratch ticket. This leaves me just as breathless. Thanks to everyone at Salon and all the readers of Mothers Who Think.

I'm 37. I've been on diets since I was 11, and I'm
heavier than when I began, so I'm not sure that any of it was worth it. There's a hinky, murky rumor out there that consuming fewer calories and performing aerobic exercise is the way to go. And right now, filling up my living room is the Total Gym 1000. I don't know. It just might change my life. The scratch ticket sure didn't.

HRH, Linda Kilby
