Just an Average Josey! Love my husband, but stuck-in-a-rut....love 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!
What is your blogging philosophy?
HONESTY is by far the best policy! My world is real. It's not always pretty, but it IS life.
I have been blogging since...

Everybody! Please Read

Finally got around to visiting everyone's blogs; we've got a talented bunch!  I am now following all of you, however, there were a few sites I had trouble joining.  If you don't see me (my cute doggy pic was changed, poor thing didn't show up. Now I'm just a boring landscape), simply send me a message and I'll try again.  Looking forward to reading, sharing, and learning from all of you.  Have a wonderful day :)See More

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

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 Bottom Cheesecake, and…See More

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

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. No matter how much I…See More

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

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 house. You can see the way…See More

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.
