The division of labor in our house

I'm wondering, what's it like in your house?



Heidi woke up sick this morning. She told us so. “I sick.” And then she projectile vomited and we were like: Oh, you mean you’re sick, sick.



Here’s something to consider if you’re single and looking for that special someone to raise a family with one day: If you’re not ‘O.K.’ with vomit, your special someone had better be. That’s because puke and kids go hand in hand. So the next… Continue

Am I Alone in My Loathing of Idol?

American Idol For today’s ‘Fess Up blog, I chose to write about a show that is very near and dear to my husband, but one that I really can’t stand. I think I’m probably in the minority here,

because this show continues to be the #1 rated show in America, but I

must ‘fess up here and admit that I LOATH AMERICAN…

Answered Prayers

Michael and Riley The theme of today’s blog hop is ANSWERED PRAYERS, and I definitely have many in my life to be thankful for. Actually, my entire life is comprised of answered

prayers. First and foremost, I was blessed with being a pretty

intelligent woman. This led me to become the first college graduate in

my family and college is where I was lucky enough to meet my future

husband, Michael. He is such a gift to me that I could write the rest

of this blog solely on how…

Marriage Mondays ~ ME change for HIS schedule?

Have you ever experienced a time where your husband had a lot on his plate? Maybe he was taking comps for a master's degree. Maybe he had an evaluation at work. Maybe he's in finance, and it's tax season (wear a nametag - he will remember you :) ). Maybe he's a firefighter who is battling seasonal fires or in construction, taking advantage of good weather (Do NOT pretend to be in a burning building to get him to notice you!). Maybe he's a teacher and school is starting. Like it or not, his… Continue

The Case Against the Flawed (almost) SAHM - SAHM Project - Entry Seven

Self-evaluation is never easy. No one likes to admit when, or how many

times, they are wrong. This is especially true for me. But,

self-evaluation is necessary for any real, beneficial changes to occur

in ones behaviors.



And it seems on days that I am most adament about avoiding the

blemishes on my character, my husband turns into a gigantic, gaudy

mirror, waiting with baited breath to point out that I'm not as sweet

as I claim to be.

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… Continue

Marriage Mondays ~ Sickness and Health

Some modern vows delete it, but most who wear wedding bands promised it "in the presence of these witnesses." You know the part ... "in sickness and in health." Few think of the likelihood of experiencing sickness, physical or emotional, in married life. It's inevitable, though, that infirmity will strike during life together and may range from stomach flu to kidney stones to long term or terminal illness to depression and anxiety. It's hard to live out our vows "in sickness and in health."… Continue

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.… Continue

The Luckiest Woman

During a holiday work party, I went up to my husband to give him a hug when a co-worker asked me, "Do you know you are the luckiest woman in this room?".



I knew what she meant but still I asked "why?". She went on to tell me how wonderful my husband is and how I should love and cherish him. (What made her think I don't love and cherish him?) As we left she made her way to him and tried to go in for.... for well, I don't know what.... but she got a half hug at best.

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… Continue

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

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

My Marriage Experiment ~ 2 Counseling Sessions Down, 25 To Go!

So we’ve already determined that we stink. We’ve forgotten how to dream. We’ve lost our individual identities and we’re simply co-existing. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it? Well Ladies, I must say, since our first marriage counseling session was posted last week, my life has been an absolute whirlwind.

We may, in fact, stink. But a funny thing happened. When you start communicating, no matter how “big” or “small” the conversation, things start to change. Dynamics are… Continue

Four Seasons of Marriage

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.

Young, Married, and a Mommy!

Where do I start??? There has been so much going on in my little world, that sometimes I feel as if I'm going to lose it! So, when I had my daughter at 21 things were GREAT! She was such a little angel (which she still is when she wants to be) and she was such a joy to have. But when she hit that 10 month mark I thought I was going to lose it. My Little Madison doesn't cry she's a screamer and that scream will give you the biggest headache ever. She's also going through that clingy stage; where… Continue
