Grey Skies & Stinky Feet...6 Counseling Sessions Down, 21 To Go!

I am pleading with the SUN. Please come back. Bring me warmth, energy, and enthusiasm. Take away the cold, blistering wind. Destroy my sweaters, wool socks, and mittens. Bring me sundresses, flip flops, and sunscreen. Keep me warm, tan, and freckled…..a pool by my feet, a cocktail within reach. All of this, in Mother Nature’s name I pray, AMEN.

It’s winter in good old Pennsylvania, and I absolutely hate it. How do I cope? Not well. Chocolate Fudge Torte, Apple Cake, Fudge… Continue

What's Wrong With ME? 5 Counseling Sessions Down, 22 To Go...

If you can’t trust my word, what CAN you trust? Isn’t that what they say? Apparently my word means nothing. What’s wrong with me? Didn’t I promise I’d be back on track? No more late posts, no more procrastination. Once again, a day late and a dollar short. Actually, let’s be honest. A day late would be understandable, but FIVE WEEKS? I have no excuses.

I took, as I like to lovingly call it, a Christmas vacation. I’ve just decided to return to real life. By now I should know.… Continue

Marriage Counseling Stinks. 4 Counseling Sessions Down, 23 To Go.

Marriage counseling stinks. It really does. I skipped our session last week, and I’ve been avoiding admitting the truth and writing this post ever since. But that’s my m.o., that’s what I do. I go in cycles, up, down, and all around. When I start to slide, it’s a very slippery slope.

Nobody told me that if I really wanted to work on my marriage, I’d also have to work on myself. I know how stupid that sounds. I mean, REALLY work on myself.

It’s almost like remodeling a… Continue

WHY Does He Love YOU? 3 Counseling Sessions Down, 24 To Go...

Ask your partner why they love you. See what happens. I did, and then I tried not to panic when my husband paused and told me the question made his brain hurt.

Well actually, that requires the presence of a brain, and since he still hadn’t answered yet, I seriously doubt his is in working order. Men can be so DENSE.

Oh, by the way, our rubberbands from last week’s session, lasted approximately 20 hours. Not even a full day. They were, quite possibly, the worst idea I’ve… Continue

My Marriage Experiment ~ Can You Help Us Spice Things Up?!?

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

My Marriage Experiment ~ 2 Counseling Sessions Down, 25 To Go!

So we’ve already determined that we stink. We’ve forgotten how to dream. We’ve lost our individual identities and we’re simply co-existing. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it? Well Ladies, I must say, since our first marriage counseling session was posted last week, my life has been an absolute whirlwind.

We may, in fact, stink. But a funny thing happened. When you start communicating, no matter how “big” or “small” the conversation, things start to change. Dynamics are… Continue

My Marriage Experiment ~ 1 Counseling Session Down, 26 To Go!

Okay People. Let me tell you how you DON’T want your day to go. You know, the day that is to be the “first day of the rest of your lives together”, as I so naively stated in my introductory blog. I couldn’t wait for our first counseling session. I woke up loving life and this whole blogging thing. I joined my first “mommy” networking / blogging group, I even made some friends and received some comments, I felt so special!



Before I go any further, let me just say that I didn’t… Continue

My Marriage Experiment... Average, Stuck-In-A-Rut Couple Seeking Phenomenal, Fantastic Marriage ~ Does It Really Exist?

Monotony, boredom, excuses, and blame; this is not the life I signed up for. Insecurity, self-doubt, financial hardship, and despair; not exactly what I had in mind. Excitement, adventure, passion, and love; yes, that’s what I meant, that’s absolutely what I want.

In all fairness, I’m sure my husband didn’t expect to marry a loony bird wife either. Up down, high low, scattered and erratic; yeah, not the way he intended to roll. But that’s where we’re at, and that’s why we’re… Continue
