Just an Average Josey! Love my husband, but my kids, but pulling my hair out....have a good life, but looking for GREAT. My hubby & I have begun a "do-it-yourself" version of Marriage Counseling. 6 months, 27 sessions; documented weekly. Journaling about our life, problems, ups & downs has added so much to my world. Thank you for your support! Advice, any and all, is needed, welcomed, and absolutely appreciated!

HONESTY is by far the best policy! My world is real. It's not always pretty, but it IS life.

Grey Skies & Stinky Feet...6 Counseling Sessions Down, 21 To Go!

Posted on February 1, 2010 at 3:19pm 0 Comments

I am pleading with the SUN. Please come back. Bring me warmth, energy, and enthusiasm. Take away the cold, blistering wind. Destroy my sweaters, wool socks, and mittens. Bring me sundresses, flip flops, and sunscreen. Keep me warm, tan, and freckled…..a pool by my feet, a cocktail within reach. All of this, in Mother Nature’s name I pray, AMEN.

It’s winter in good old Pennsylvania, and I absolutely hate it. How do I cope? Not well. Chocolate Fudge Torte, Apple Cake, Fudge… Continue

What's Wrong With ME? 5 Counseling Sessions Down, 22 To Go...

Posted on January 23, 2010 at 3:06pm 0 Comments

If you can’t trust my word, what CAN you trust? Isn’t that what they say? Apparently my word means nothing. What’s wrong with me? Didn’t I promise I’d be back on track? No more late posts, no more procrastination. Once again, a day late and a dollar short. Actually, let’s be honest. A day late would be understandable, but FIVE WEEKS? I have no excuses.

I took, as I like to lovingly call it, a Christmas vacation. I’ve just decided to return to real life. By now I should know.… Continue

Marriage Counseling Stinks. 4 Counseling Sessions Down, 23 To Go.

Posted on December 14, 2009 at 11:53pm 0 Comments

Marriage counseling stinks. It really does. I skipped our session last week, and I’ve been avoiding admitting the truth and writing this post ever since. But that’s my m.o., that’s what I do. I go in cycles, up, down, and all around. When I start to slide, it’s a very slippery slope.

Nobody told me that if I really wanted to work on my marriage, I’d also have to work on myself. I know how stupid that sounds. I mean, REALLY work on myself.

It’s almost like remodeling a… Continue

WHY Does He Love YOU? 3 Counseling Sessions Down, 24 To Go...

Posted on December 7, 2009 at 3:25pm 0 Comments

Ask your partner why they love you. See what happens. I did, and then I tried not to panic when my husband paused and told me the question made his brain hurt.

Well actually, that requires the presence of a brain, and since he still hadn’t answered yet, I seriously doubt his is in working order. Men can be so DENSE.

Oh, by the way, our rubberbands from last week’s session, lasted approximately 20 hours. Not even a full day. They were, quite possibly, the worst idea I’ve… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Thank you so much for following my blog I followed you back :) You're following my homeschool blog, but I have another blog you might enjoy reading called Green Acres. I started it as a Jersey girl living in the south. I see you're in PA and thought you might enjoy following this one too. Here's a link:

Thanks again, I look forward to reading your blog!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
