If you ask your spouse to do something and it's not done yet, do it yourself. It's not worth the time and energy complaining or nagging to get the job done. Not doing the job because of the "principle of the thing" is a great way to put a crack in the bedrock of your marriage. This doesn't mean you have to be a doormat - just don't spend your time and energy on negative feelings, like stress or frustration that something isn't done. If you can't do it yourself without whining and… Continue

I am not a big TV buff, but every once in a while a show will grab my attention and I get a little hooked
. In this case, the show Sister Wives
has done exactly that. I am not sure what it is about this show that has drawn me in unless it has something to do with the religion vs. law aspect of it. I think one thing that intrigues me most is that this family is willing to risk the dad, Kody Brown,
going to prison in order to speak… Continue

My Cuban has been enjoying his jeep for a few weeks now. Me? Not so much. So instead of just pointlessly complaining about it, I've created an exhaustive, credible list of complaints:
1. Can't hear… Continue

Motherhood and marriage sometimes brings you to the point of no return. Brings you to a place where you think, where has the time gone? and do I get anytime for myself?
In an attempt to force myself to workout and stay in shape, which is so hard to do when you are juggling life, I decided to join an adult Field Hockey League. Field Hockey had been my life for so many years and an escape from so many stressful life events. So, after months of debating and encouragement I did it. Now… Continue

I just finished reading a post on my website with the same title as this blog title by "Concerned Wife and Mom" from TN. You may read it by visiting: http://www.womencopingwell.com/cope-blog.html
Right now it should be the first permalink entry on the cope-blog page.
I totally agree with Concerned Wife and Mom!
I especially agree with the fact that we, as women, need to find a way to raise our sons and… Continue

Did you know that the #1 cause of divorce is money? You've probably heard that statistic before but have you really spent time thinking about it? Maybe you have, you are married, and you fight over money most of the time. Bills owed can be a stressful thing. Then again maybe you haven't spent much time dwelling on it, you push it aside and don't deal… Continue

I'm getting the feeling my fiance dislikes my blog. The first day he
knew about it, he actually stalked around it for a little bit clicking
nearly every link he could find (Perhaps he believed that one would
lead to porn? He is a man, after all.). Now ever since he rudely felt
up my blog, I've had a slight vibe of almost irritation whenever we
talk about it. The only reason he sounds only slightly irritated is
because it also sounds like he's doing his best to… Continue

I've been married to the Cuban for 11 years. So in some ways, I'm an amateur & in other ways, a pro. Banking on the former, I recently decided to pick up a "how-to" marriage book titled, "Every Woman's Marriage." Now my… 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

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
