I know I’ll never be able to tear myself away from politics and writing about issues that are important to me and lots of other women I know, but I’ve taken a very difficult vow to abstain from something else I love almost as much as the talking head shows and the world of political discourse — magazines.

I’m learning the hard way that they aren’t the innocuous diversion that I thought they were, especially with a daughter on the verge of tweenhood. Check out my latest at 50-something Moms, Fashion Magazines, I Have to “Quit” You.

Don’t worry, though — I’m not quitting punditry anytime soon!
