Friday was JDubbs's and my fourth wedding anniversary. We didn't do anything elaborate, but when you have two kids under three and the younger littlin' just got three teeth at the same time (including one molar), getting out to dinner a mile and a half away is a blessing and as much a present as we could ask for.
I didn't bring my camera. We… Continue

Award-winning, first-time novelist Marisel Vera pens an honest, heart-felt, often sad tale of an idealistic, naïve Puerto Rican girl named Felicidad who goes to America to be with the man she loves.
The story, told from an author omniscient point of view, begins in the early 1940’s in the Puerto Rican countryside and ends about ten years later in Chicago. It follows Felicidad’s…

The other night, all three babes in bed and fast asleep, my husband and I poured a little bowl of water, laid out a futon on the living room floor, and lit each others ears aflame! Ha, hot stuff!
I've read many tidbits about the benefits (and criticism) of ear candling these past few years and at long last wanted to give them a proper try. And it certainly couldn't hurt my husband, who quotes an article from a decade ago about "men not hearing women's voices due to pitch differences"… Continue

I’m no expert on love or marriage, I’m barely an expert at my own life, but over the years I think I’ve learned a few things worth sharing. I’ve had the pleasure, and sometimes the burden, of loving the same man for the last sixteen years. I was only nineteen when we started dating and naive enough to think all a marriage needed to survive was love. Sure was a fool back then, but I learned.… Continue

I feel that when I came to this realization, it brought me mental wellness, it made me see life, my life, in a whole new light.
Recent interactions that lead me to writing this post
My girlfriend Wendy recently said to me, "V, I've got to wonder, how much more does God expect you to take? Is God waiting to see how much it will take to break you or trying to make you stronger?"
A post by my friend Christal:… Continue

Does your marriage feel like it needs resuscitating? Maybe it’s time to breathe some LIFE back into your relationship: L = Laugh.
Your husband still wants to have fun with you. Take time to do things together. Enjoy one another. Smile. Laugh.I = Intercede.
Couples who pray together stay together. The rate of divorce drops to less than 1% among husbands and wives… Continue

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

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
