I Blinked…And You Turned Ten

I was ten months pregnant and as big as a whale. It was so hot. You were having soccer games inside my belly. I think the other team was winning. I had heartburn and couldn’t sleep, and was desperately trying to get your room ready “in time.” Who knew I’d have a whole extra ten Read More

Seven Ways I Knew He Was The One

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have learned the hard way that there are some relationships that are just…wrong.  Thankfully though, I’ve also discovered that there are also relationships that are just…right. Looking back, I know there were signs in my first relationship.  Signs that I clearly ignored. Read More

Am I Selfish?

I don’t generally approve of the whole “selfie” craze.  Kimmie and her “Selfish” book (which damnit I’m not linking to because that girl gets so much spotlight I’m surprised she doesn’t have a permatan) are, as far as I’m concerned, part of what’s wrong with today’s society. People are so engrossed in themselves and in Read More

Tell Me Something I Don’t Know About You

Tell me something I don’t know about you. A question I ask Hubs all the time. Usually at intimate moments. A quiet dinner just the two of us. After supper, on the couch, when the kids are in bed. When we’re in bed…my head on his shoulder, my fingers playing with the hair on his Read More

Sorry…Not Today

No, I’m sorry. I can’t. The children are home. I *actually* could get a sitter and join you for dinner or shopping or some other outing – but I’ve only got a limited amount of time. See – you know that I’m one of “those” parents. I’m divorced. Even eight years after the fact, my Read More

The Eyes Have It!

What is the first thing that you do every single day (I mean after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin? Every morning, first thing when I get up, I turn to my bedside table and grab my glasses.  I’ve been wearing glasses since I was two years old. Read More

If You Remember These…You Might Be Old

What was the one toy that a friend had that you wished you had when you were little? I’m breaking this out again just before Christmas because the old is new again! I can’t believe all the “old” toys that are coming back. I am (of course) a child of the eighties, and these were Read More

My Destination is No Longer Set by the Way the Wind Blows

I was struck today by a thought.  We’re still renovating (painting) the new condo. Hubs and I have been working fairly effectively together. I’m doing the middle of the walls and he’s doing the detail work. We turned on some music, poured out the paint, and just got it done. The way we work in Read More
