I Don't Let Just Anyone See My Underwear

My husband and I fold laundry together. It’s one of the only chores we can share and still enjoy each other’s company, not only because it’s the only household job that neither of us has passively and purposely fumbled to get out of, but because we joke around a lot while we’re folding, like we just met.



The conversation is also mixed with nostalgia.



“When did our baby start wearing size 12 jeans?” We hold the boys’ pants up to ourselves and observe how close they are to… Continue

Why the Cuban Has Stayed With Me For 11 Yrs



11 years ago, the Cuban & I said "yes" to become one & today we celebrate 11 years of that. Now we don't make a big, honkin' deal out of our anniversary. Don't make special plans; don't give lavish gifts. To outsiders, it may seem irreverent or unromantic. Not to us. The reason today is like any other--is to us--EVERY day is an anniversary. When you… Continue

In honor of National Marriage week

Apparently last week was National Marriage week. I ,myself, was so deep

in the throes of actually being in a Marriage that it completely

escaped me. Well, to be honest, I never knew there was such a thing.

But to be fair, I think it is a wonderful idea. I mean if we can

celebrate Veterans Day and President's Day, we can surely give some

credit for those of us who have maintained a long and happy marriage,

or maybe I should say those…

Non-Verbal Communication in Marriage: What to Look for What it Means

I consider myself an expert in the field of Non-Verbal Communication. My husband is an engineer, which is to say he has a PhD in Non-Verbal Communication. He was on the Dean’s list when I met him. He flourished under the tutelage of a blue collar step-father, a man of few words: “Who left the milk out?” and “I’m going out.”



I am psychic. I can read my mind. I think everyone else should be able to, too. Especially if we’ve spent more than an hour trauma bonding. Or if we’ve been… Continue

Legalizing Gay Marriage

I have never really understood the opposition to legalizing gay (or same-sex) marriages.





If you're alive and aware at all, you know that it's not just a slow burning opposition, either. No, it's something different entirely.





The opposition is more akin to an extremely overt, fire-breathing (religious) dragon. (If you ask me, I believe most opponents of the issue are religious in some way).…

No, really, I'm an idiot

The last day of school before winter break I had a little cold that lasted for three days. I thought it was allergies, set off from being inside a school. I’m either allergic to the cleaning chemicals or the dirty, recirculated air or memories planted deep in my subconscious. The allergies linger for three days. Whatever. I don’t think anything of it. I’m fine.



Winter break comes and my husband, Skye, gets “the cold” that was, for me, just allergies. Only he’s crabby, coughing,… Continue

Online Dating Turns into a Leap of Faith Called a One-Way Ticket

My friend Dan’s nervous ex-wife, Helen Who Hates Me, asked me for a ride to the airport. If you look up desperate in the dictionary, you will see this example of the proper use of the word: Helen was so desperate for a ride to the airport, she called a friend of her ex-husband whom she hates. It depends on the dictionary. I bet Helen has that very edition and needed to look up the spelling of desperate for an article she was writing, and like a horoscope, or a quote on the tag of a tea bag,… Continue

Here's what I won't do

I was shocked yet thoroughly entertained by a friend of mine who told me that his sister got her fiance to agree (then adhere to when they got married) to change his last name to the last name of her child's father.. He agreed to that! Ha!



I spent some time thinking about the dynamics of a relationship and the personality of these two individuals that could lead to this sort of decision, and was thinking if I could ever be so self-serving, inconsiderate and downright… Continue

My First Neutering

I went to a bridal party once. If there were any bridal parties after that that I was invited to, I probably avoided them. A woman right out of high school, whom I’d met at the Bun n’ Cone (don’t laugh, that’s the real name), invited me to come to the party at her house that evening after work, and to the wedding the following day.



I felt a little uncomfortable going to her wedding. I didn’t know anyone, including her, really, but I went to her house that night because of the look on… Continue

My Bucket List Can't Wait Another Day

After visiting Thelma in the nursing home, my husband and I have been having a lot of talks lately about our health, aging, and where we could find ourselves, you know, at the end. It has changed how we treat each other while we’re still continent.



I never thought a nursing home would be all that bad until I visited one. I used to fantasize about sharing my own little room with my pet, and meals prepared for me. Tennis in the afternoon with people who can still get around. Water… Continue

Celebrating Your Anniversary On A Budget

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com



Wedding Bouquet Today we celebrated our three year anniversary. It really feels like it's been much longer than that, in a good way. I think that's when you really know you've found the right person. When all of your memories before them start to feel like they were right there with you.



Since we have a baby on the way we are being conservative with our money. I've looked at… Continue

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com

I just read a study that says having children makes for a happy marriage. The study, from the Journal of Happiness Studies (hard to take you seriously with a name like that) found that married couples find greater happiness by having a child. In fact, the more children you have the happier you become (… Continue

15 Signs You're Meant To Be

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com



love 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

The Bedroom Battleground - The Fight That Every Couple Has!

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com



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

Here A Penny, Save A Penny! - How To Make A Small Change Turn Into Major Coin!

Original Post - http://www.newlyparents.com/?p=76



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

I Thought You Knew What You Were Doing!!

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
