When Your Husband Is Dating Another Woman

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 2:48pm 0 Comments

When your husband is dating another woman, what is the etiquette? Are there special Hallmark card? Is there a ceremony or a special title? Maybe even a badge.

No my husband and I are not separated nor are we living in separate residences. His mail still comes to this address and I still wash his clothes, fold it and put it away because as my daughter says, I'm too nice.

Last year at this time, I thought his distance and his crankiness were just fall out from his tendency…

"Live your life like no one is watching." Sandra Hamlett

This line popped into my head while meditating this morning. I'm not sure if I read it somewhere or if it is uniquely mine. I could use the positive reinforcement right now so I'm taking credit for it.

After meditating I started…


The Weight of My Weight

Posted on March 4, 2011 at 10:32am 0 Comments

I am struggling. I stepped on the scale and I definitely felt a seismic rumble as the digital numbers flashed up (oh horror) then back down (relief) and then back up again; two pounds since Sunday. I cannot plead ignorance, my husband's de facto position. His immediate response is to question the findings, "This, can’t be right. I don’t know how this could have happened", uttered with a righteous indignation that would fill any politician with pride.

No I do not do this. I know exactly… Continue

The Little Moments

Posted on January 29, 2011 at 1:11am 0 Comments

There are big moments in a parent's life. There are the firsts- first smile, first steps, first lost tooth. There are birthdays and graduations. There are photographs and video to commemorate these times. Hallmark has made a fortune from family milestones.

I enjoy the big moments but I live for the thousands of little moments... Like the one I'm having right now with my daughter, sitting on the couch watching re-runs of "The Office".

Everyone else is the house is sleeping… Continue

Having an "aah" Moment

Posted on January 25, 2011 at 11:56am 0 Comments

I should be bouncing for joy.

I should be performing cartwheels through the aisle of the study room.

I should be getting strange looks from people because my goofy grin falls to close to the line separating normal and abnormal.

Instead... I'm subdued on my first day with time to myself. From about 10AM to 2:30PM, I have no commitments on Tuesday and Friday. My emotions are cut short of full-blown joy as a mixture of guilt, anxiety, and stress coagulate my… Continue

Hi from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty articles on every topic imaginable and was created over a year ago.

So please ... come on over and see me some time. Hope you're enjoying your weekend .

That's so cool that you are tapping back into your photography talent. It's an interest of mine, but i have no talent. Right now I'm going through the dilemna of trying to find the right camera to mess around with. Do you have any recommendation on a site to look that might rate camera. I'm so confused right now about the DSLR and all that stuff.
