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

It's a battle that is fought every night by every couple in the world on some level. Some battles are more fierce than others. Some end in bloodshed while others end in complete tyrannical takeover. The people that used to occupy a space are ousted from their homes and forced to seek refuge somewhere else (usually the couch). Adding a twist… Continue

It seems that we’ve spent our entire marriage saving for something. When we first got engaged we were furiously saving for a wedding in six months. After we got married we began saving for a house for two years. In 23 months we had saved enough for a down payment on our first house and we just celebrated one year in the house.… Continue

Skye and I want to rip out the Berber carpet that we had installed in the basement years ago when my mother-in-law briefly lived in what is now the mancave. We want to replace it — the carpet, not the mother-in-law (Hi, Shirley! *waves at mother-in-law* You are irreplaceable!) — with the tile we have leftover from the home improvement project we still refer to as the DIY that almost dissolved our marriage.
Skye: “I thought you knew what you were doing!”
Me: “I thought you… Continue

There was a tv show on today that I was able to catch while the kids slept called "Gay Marriage and the people stopping it:" or something to that affect. It was a recap of the Prop 8 situation in California and the other battles in other states. I watched closely, reading signs that people had made. Watching those in support of Prop 8 with their young children standing out yelling that God hates fags.
I don't understand how people's hearts can be so full of hate. They claim they are… 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

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

July is officially the craziest month of the year at our house. My husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary and our little, well not so little anymore, bundle of joy is turning one! so, to dedicate a little blog space to my husband, who I rarely ever mention, I have come up with 10 reasons why being married rocks.
10. I can fall asleep on the couch and magically wake up in bed.
9. I have someone to blame for not being able to do something I… Continue

I have discovered that being the type of woman who can Do It All leads to Not Doing It At All. At least for me.
I'm a stay-at-home-mom of many small children who has done smidges of freelance work in the past. But I recently took on a large freelance project that has pretty much taken over all my spare time, and then some. Now, I'm squeezing in work all day long in between the home and childcare duties.
My husband hasn't changed his schedule. So when he gets home… Continue

Author Kelly Corrigan wrote this moving essay about women's remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure. This actually brought me to tears and makes me feel so proud of my gender. I also feel sorry for the men in our lives because they miss out on so much by not having this kind of support system. If you haven't seen this before please take the time to watch it now. Women are truly special and I raised 3 great ones, this is for them. I only wish I had written it.… Continue

It's true, and I'll say it again, A Divided Home is a Happy Home.
Remember awhile back when I talked about cheap therapy, and then I ranted and raved about marriage and family therapist, Shelby Riley? (If you're new, you can read it here
) Well, I decided to put into practice one of her e-books, 10 Weeks to Increased Intimacy and Connection.

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

I can't tell you how much better I feel now that I have been honest about not being perfect
It's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.
It was a tough role to pull off, that perfection thing, and as great as I am at being an… Continue

Last year I fell apart. I have been with my wonderful husband for 15yrs, including dating time. Unfortunately for a long time I didn't believe my husband to be as wonderful. We had difficulties and I had feelings that were harder to express and fix than I know now they should have been. My husband is suppose to be my best friend but I didn't feel like that. And it hurt! It hurt me to know I didn't feel it and later it hurt him. In the end I found emotional comfort somewhere else and didn't like… Continue

I was listening to a workshop called Change Your Brain, Change Your Life done by Dr. Daniel Amen, who is an expert on the human brain.
It's rather funny actually. It came on television between Mr. Rogers, and The Reading Rainbow. Who would have thought that myself, and my children would become so educated on the subject of the human brain while watching children's television?!
As I was cleaning up the house, okay - I… Continue

This is so not the post you THINK this is.
Peter and I used to have a nice constant sleeping pattern. I’d crawl into bed and be sound asleep while he passed out on the couch watching Scrubs/Stargate/ESPN. Then he’d quietly make his way to bed at some point in the dark of night, being very careful to not wake me. Thus the peaceful co-sleeping would commence.
It’s been hard adjusting to sleeping without Pete since he moved to Alabama to work. At first it seems like the bed… Continue

Well ladies. Here we are. Sitting in front of our secret hide away-but really not very secret at all isn't it? Divulging in stories, photo's, opinions...ourselves. I like this place. I am a jaded blogger. But, I think I have been re-ignited. I've been blogging for a while. However, my style is a little different. I have seen what other mothers were blogging about and I liked it, laughed, cried and enjoyed them...but found a little bit on the topics I like to cover. I like to talk about moms… Continue
