We go on a date every week to reestablish our connection to each
other. This is necessary both for our sanity and my whininess.
I am still giddy about my husband and being in his presence, despite the fact that we are, you know, MARRIED.
Sometimes in these moments I am so consumed with the love I have for my husband I don’t know what to do with myself. I am what one would
accurately describe as a “goober.” I find my desires stuck… Continue

Hubby got him a new girlfriend Monday night. A beautiful grill that he’s been dreaming about ever since we moved out of the depths of southern hell. See in southern hell we had a cheap little charcoal grill that he would use almost every day during the long humid summers. That beloved redneck grill barely lasted through the 3 summers we were there and we decided to leave it behind.

This past Friday we get a knock on our door around dinner time. We were about to head out for dinner and were surprised that someone was there. We live outside of the city limits, but still within a neighborhood. There isn’t any trash collection (let alone for recycling) or any other “city duties” where we live, but we can shoot our pistols and burn shit so it evens out. The only visitors we get are the neighborhood girl scouts selling cookies or the volunteer fire department requesting… Continue

Hubby DOES NOT understand anything that I do on the internet – EVER. I am completely addicted to my Blackberry and way ADD with it. I get antsy when I’m not doing this with my hands – weird, right? I’ll be sitting on the couch watching t.v. talking with my hubby after the kids are in bed and I’ll get antsy. Either I’m crafting, drawing, or on my Blackberry. And it drives him crazy… why? I really don’t know other than he wants me to pay attention and be 100% focused on… Continue

This is NOT my year, the only thing missing from my “NOT” year is a high school reunion – that would just take the cake.
My “not’s” for this year (that I’m already freaking out about, but haven’t actually happened yet = the story of my life):
1. my husband is turning 30
2. my son is turning 3
3. my daughter is turning 10
Why is this my not year you ask? Let me explain.

We’re in the middle of March Madness in our house – in every sense of the word.
My husband is obsessed with all things ESPN – especially football and March Madness. My employer holds a bracket contest every year – we can enter in 2 brackets at $10 each, first place gets 75%, second place gets the other 25%. Guess who one last year?

Ah, the conversations that happen in our house. When the baby is born I'm afraid I'm going to have two childish boys and nothing but fart jokes.
Honey, will you go put gas in my car?
I bet you could fill it up with all the gas pregnancy… Continue

Sometimes when you compare things you realize that they really aren't the same at all.

Husband: Except in this case your present will be opening… Continue

Yesterday, I had a feeling: "I wasnt doing anything", and I felt some sort of guilt. There for ; there is a reason for all the things I lived and know now that II dont have to go through the same things over and over..
Let me explain.
When Lucas got sick, back in 2007, every minute of my life couldn´t stay still. Since I can remember, after I finished college I was already working at two schools and in the meantime had 3 small children and a husband who also needs an investment of… Continue

A long time ago, when I was in a mixed up crazy relationship that an unmovable force kept me in — that, and the smell of his neck — I did a Nancy Reagan. I consulted a psychic.
I went at the insistence of my friend, David. David is fluent in the universal language of the stars. After comparing birth charts, he urged me to get out of my rocky relationship with Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights because “his Saturn is sitting right on your sun!”
Translation? Heathcliff and I… Continue

(when a week’s worth of domestic business is conducted in 48 hours and no one knows what anyone is doing because it’s just not possible and besides the toddler has broken into and is ransacking the bottom kitchen cupboard and who can remember what dangerous implements might have been tossed in there the last time anyone put anything away—whenever that was?)

I am reading Heather Armstrong’s (better known as dooce.com to millions who read her personal blog) book It Sucked and Then I Cried
. It’s insightful, self-deprecating and hilarious, as I expected — I love her blog. So I thought I’ll post a dooce-ish entry inspired by Heather’s writing:
So we finally set up our bed tonight. We moved into this house about a month ago, and we still were sleeping on just the box spring and mattress. (Well, mostly Don sleeps in the bed and I… Continue

Ever since the quirky Flight of the Conchords series appeared on HBO, people have been telling my husband that he looks like Jermaine Clement, the sideburned, black glasses-wearing, taller of the two musicians/comedians.
Skye hadn’t told me that he’s been receiving these comments from people everywhere he goes. He kept that unflattering observation to himself and sprung it on me after luring me into the mancave to watch the comedy that is woven around the theme of culture class, as… Continue

I expected that having a baby would add new challenges to being married. So, I am not surprised that there are moments when I'd like to kill my husband and, I'm positive, vice versa. I decided to write this post after a disagreement on the weekend about the difference in our lives right now, and by lives I mean having a life vs. not having one.
What am I bitter about? Well for starters, how about the fact that pregnancy turned my body into a never-ending project? I have to lose… Continue

Many times I find myself wondering... Why do other women seem to love their husbands more than I love mine?
I read blogs on a daily basis and many mommy bloggers out there are going on and on about how wonderful their husbands are and how much they love them. And it makes me question our relationship.
I love my husband. And I know that he loves me. So how can we be more like that?
I've come up with a few theories that I have been putting to the test. Some of… Continue

What couple does not worry about how their marriage will fare when the kids are gone? Every mom will tell you the minute she gives birth, her husband takes second fiddle in her heart. Sometimes husbands don’t even get a musical role. They get demoted to errand boy. “Can you get me that burp cloth? And while you’re up can you fix me a tuna fish sandwich? And change his diaper? And the channel? I can’t reach the remote. I don’t want to tear my stitches.”… Continue

I emailed Fox News and told them that I was sorry but I had to decline their request to document my family. At first I was all over it. What a great idea to use our victimization from Madoff to attract readers. I still think I'm on to something but perhaps having a film crew follow me around for the day and translate our lives into a sappy, pitiful story of a family on the decline is not the best way to bring myself fame.
The irony of my blog is that my husband and I are very private… Continue

hello & welcome to my first blog post from Australia......the US economy and rising oil prices, along with our own depressed economy have had an effect on our pockets over here in Australia. Thankfully, just before Christmas, our gas prices dropped slightly and we had two small consecutive interest rate cuts. That put some extra jangle in our pockets for Christmas craziness (yay to shopping)!
Anyway, being a familY of fouR + puppy we've been… Continue

For a long time I had been contemplating having another child. I have two beautiful boys already. They are my little angels - truly blessings.
But I have always toyed with the idea of having another child. I always thought I would have three children. I don’t know why exactly… the number three seemed so right. I come from a family of three, so does my husband. It just seemed natural to have three.
I used to get the question all the time: “So when are you going to try for a… Continue
