I love Valentines Day! I know I am a sap. My friends say if I were a color I would be pink for sure. So naturally I adore this gushy, blush colored holiday, however commercial it may be.
Given the combination of the times, and my ridiculous schedule a romantic date with candles, great wine, stimulating conversation , and a hot black dress are not happening this year. I admit in years past I would have been disappointed by the truth surrounding the check book and day timer on this of… Continue

The month of February focuses our attention on love. Cards are bought, candy is given, kisses abound. What is it about love? We simply cannot get enough of it. “I love you” and “I’m in love with you.” Is there a difference? Yes. “I’m in love with you” has more infatuation and projection attached and “I love you” has more of day-to-day companionship attached. Each has its mystery. Mystery, by definition, cannot be completely understood. I like the word mystery because it elevates a… Continue

My husband and I love watching movies.
We rarely go to the theater.
Instead, we frequent the shelves of our local library which offer brand-new-to-DVD movies, as well as many treasured classics…

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life. From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need. … Continue

When I gave birth to my first Daughter I had an emergency Cesarean. I honestly thought it would be my final act to bring her into this world and this poem sums up the prayers I made during surgery.

So I finally caved and bought my daughter a Snuggie. Yes, yes, you know, those gigantic blanket things with sleeves.
Personally, I think they look just plain silly, but she's been wanting one for ages. And not just any Snuggie, of course, but the "Peace and Love" Snuggie with multi-colored peace signs all over it, if you can dig that, man.
She keeps telling me it is "soooo comfortable," and that I just have to try it on.
Absolutely not. First of all, if… Continue

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

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.
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

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

This morning I was awakened with a gentle stroke of a finger against my cheek. As I slowly stirred, reluctant to leave behind my dreamy slumber, that errant finger again tickled my cheek. I opened my foggy eyes intent on ridding myself of the pesky intruder until I saw him smiling at me. His soft brown eyes twinkled and silently said “hello my sweet, I didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye.”
I sheepishly smiled in return, knowing my face was flushed, my hair tousled and… Continue

Moms, let's talk about the four seasons of marriage: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Usually we think of marriage as a relationship with our partner but it can also be the state of marriage solely within us called "the inner marriage." The inner marriage is an intimate relationship with ourself. We need a strong inner marriage of love, appreciation, understanding and respect for ourself in order to experience the serenity, joy, and connection attainable in an outer marriage.
