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…

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

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that I was once widowed and if you have read Two Funerals, A Christening and a Wedding, you know how I met my husband Colby. It was all movie fashion in the Caracas Continue
airport and the movie feel of our relationship didn’t end with the weekend in
Venezuela, although day-to-day life in a relationship with a three year old is
not necessarily the stuff movies are made of.…

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

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

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… Continue

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

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).…

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

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

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

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

It's that time of the month again! Only this time, I'm looking forward to it.... BUT I NEED YOUR HELP!
If you're following our Marriage Experiment, you know it's the end of the month, and therefore time for us to embark on a new adventure together. Anything, as long as it's new, and we can do it together. Dinner at a DIFFERENT restaurant, or perhaps a walk in a beautiful "new to us" setting. When you're stuck-in-a-rut, it's hard to come up with new ideas! Help! Do you have a favorite… Continue

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
