If you have a kid I need to warn you about the Romeo and Juliet syndrome. Again.
Yeah, you think you already know but let me remind you of the rules because the first time your college aged daughter who is beautiful and elegant and brilliant walks in the house with a dweeby little wanna-be artist with a handshake that says "I'm a goober" you'll forget all the rules. You will drag your… Continue

My son Jack, who is 23 graduated from college and is now living in New York. He called to tell me about his most recent date.
Jack is a bartender at a Go Go bar in Manhattan and he met a super pretty Argentinian girl who was just visiting the city for a few day. They decided to have a late dinner at an African/French restaurant. Maybe she was impressed with the fact that he can speak French.
After dinner they wanted to go skating but the ice skating rink in… Continue

A man and a woman meet on an internet dating site. After communicating for several months, the man asks the woman to meet him “somewhere”; he wants her to pick the place. She suggests a nearby cafe, a place where any number of inexpensive beverages can be had, seating is plentiful, lighting is good, and she can summon back-up if he proves to be a dangerous psychopath.
He agrees. Date and time are set. He has family in her area, and… Continue

This weekend is our one year wedding anniversary – we’ve only been married for a year, but living together for six. We wanted to get out of Southern Hell and closer to home before we tied the knot – then I up and got pregnant, that delayed things oh, about 10 months. We were thinking Continue
about going out of town, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. It’s
hard to find a babysitter that’ll keep your…

….just so ya know, ya little punk! Thankfully, I’ve done a few things right as a Mom, one of which is to keep my kids talking. I make a real effort at ensuring they feel comfortable coming to me, because one of these days, it just may save their life. Granted, it’s a fine line between parent & friend, & I know damn well it won’t get any easier. But if the day ever… Continue

HOLLA!! What a fantastic success for only our second week of the Friday Funny. I laughed with old friends, made some new ones, & can tell by the response that this concept is going to catch on, & turn that mind-numbingly dull FF in to a wildly enjoyable journey aboard the Crazy Train! So a big shout out to all of those crazy beeyotch’s who came along for the ride, & for… Continue

I was reading San Diego Momma's blog this morning and her post really resonated with me and got me thinking. (Thank you, Deb for inspiring my post today).
Deb's blog was about boundaries and not being able to set them. Not being able to say no. She also wrote about the inability to stand up for herself when a man had gone too far. This is the part that… Continue

I've learned (again) that God will give you what
you pray for. . even if it's not what your heart truly desires. In this
particular case, I don't know if He came through because he wants to reassure
me that he supplies my every need OR because he wanted to teach me to Be Careful What I Pray For

This episode actually began more than a week before Valentine's Day, on February
I received a new position at work - an amazing accomplishment -
and within 30 minutes of the announcement I received a very beautiful bouquet of
flowers. They were so fragrant and diverse. I have to say they were really
beautiful. I was actually surprised that they were sent by The Flower Guy.
Simple card: "Congratulations on your new job."
It's really weird. I… Continue

Hi everyone! My son just made this video about a girl he is in love with! He has always been so shy! But his gift is filmmaking! So the only way for him to express his feelings for the girl was to make this film! I think it is the most romantic way to get a girl's attention that I've ever seen in my whole life!! What do you think?? You have to see it to believe it!

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com
In a random stroll through the Internet today I came across this article at yourtango.com entitled, "15 Signs You're Meant To Be". After glancing through it I thought I would apply it to my husband and I to see if the results match what I think.
1.) You tell him things you don't tell anyone else.
Very true. My husband is my vault… Continue

Forget dating rules. I now devoutly believe there should be Ex Factor Rules; a system of rules and guidelines that the EX must follow once he's screwed himself out of a great relationship.
I take a humorous approach to presenting a list of rule that all ex-whatevers should follow to maintain peace in the relationship.
Read the full list of recommended Ex Factor Rules in "You… Continue

(Disclaimer: Adult Content or something....I couldn't make this shit up)
There was this guy. His name was Wayne but he looked so much like Kevin Costner that me and my best friend called him Kevin. Not to be confused with the real Kevin I was also seeing who owned a restaurant and did things that I'd tell him to do that I'm sure he'd never want anyone to even speculate about, let alone write about on their blog. But that's a whole 'nother post.
So I went out with Kevin… Continue

Everyone in the world has one goal. To find that special someone to love and spend the rest of your life with. But do you really think that there is one person especially sent to be with you? I always thought that marriage was sacred. That once two people took the vows that was it. End of story. But now I wonder.....what if the person you chose isn't the one for you? What do you do? Do you stick it out for family reasons? Do you stay because you think you have to? Do you admit when you are… Continue

My Personal Studio Audience
by Pam Victor
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a studio audience follow you where ever you go? I’m thinking about an Oprah-styled audience here. Very supportive. Very pro-you. I haven’t watched Oprah in years, but one of the parts about her show that always intrigued me was her ability to say to her audience, “Isn’t that right, folks?!” And the studio audience would cheer enthusiastically in eager reply. Wouldn’t it be so satisfying to have that kind of… Continue

The one that got away....
Oh, in my story there are many. I was never a long timer in relationships. I think my longest was a year, and whew, that seemed like an eternity. I always tease Jimmy that he is my longest relationship.
I have the story that I think most girls have.
I've definitely had my heart broken. I've been hurt, lied to, misunderstood, unforgiven, broken up with for no reason, strung along...even cheated on by two different guys who I honestly… Continue
