Today Will Be My Day!

Oh no!!! It's Monday, again! As we begin a new week, some of us may be looking forward to the events to come while others open their eyes with intrepidation and slowly prepare their IV caffeine drip. While it's the latter group I wish to address, you Monday optimists can take note as well. Either … Continue reading Today Will Be My Day!

Her Boyfriend’s Wife

Hi Liz, A friend of mine had been dating a guy that she met through an on-line dating service for maybe 5 months now. She was very happy because he sent her flowers and I miss you text messages and called her almost every morning. She said he was limited in the amount of time … Continue reading Her Boyfriend’s Wife

Pet Peeves and Gear Grinding

Pet peeves. We all have them. Most of them are legitimately burn-at-the-stake worthy. Some are borderline OCD-ish but others are just plain ridiculous. Because I have taken notice of the fact that my family tends to look at me with alternating head tilts - much like that of long floppy eared puppies,  I thought I … Continue reading Pet Peeves and Gear Grinding

Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you.

I bet you sung that, didn't you? As the season of love approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to take Cupid's bow and arrow and RIP IT TO SHREDS! The thought of getting shot with an arrow from a bow does not signify love. Likewise, having a little guy in a diaper do it isn't … Continue reading Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you.

Is Online Dating and Long Distance Relationships a Long Shot in the Dark?

Do you think online dating and a long distance relationship can actually work? My opinion: Let me address these two situations separately. The subject of online dating has been discussed between friends and I on many occasions. When online dating first came on the scene my acceptance of it was negative. My reaction was like … Continue reading Is Online Dating and Long Distance Relationships a Long Shot in the Dark?

Loving Through Addiction

When the magistrate confirmed your vows and pronounced you husband and wife (or husband and husband, or wife and wife-this is reality) that became the most happiest moment of your life. Through thick and thin, sickness and health, til death do you part, you made a promise to always be the person your spouse needed … Continue reading Loving Through Addiction

The Theatrics of Reality

Earlier this month-during the first snow of the season actually, I curled up on my couch under my favorite soft, warm and fuzzy blanket with a cup of chamomile vanilla tea and watched a movie titled Me Before You. Unfortunately for my husband, he had to venture out that morning for work. Fortunately for my … Continue reading The Theatrics of Reality

A Breath of Not So Fresh Air.

Hi Liz, I have a coworker who is a very nice lady in her 40's. When I first started my job she was assigned to help train me and she did an excellent job. She never made me feel silly if I forgot something and she was always patient in explaining. The problem is, since … Continue reading A Breath of Not So Fresh Air.

A Wedding Invitation: Come One But Not All

Hi! I'm getting married this year. My fiancé and I have decided that we want an intimate setting for the ceremony with only our immediate family members in attendance. We don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not inviting them but we also do not want to create a bigger expense than we can afford. … Continue reading A Wedding Invitation: Come One But Not All

Your Home is the Holder of a Myriad of Memories

Everyone can agree that any house with children is a busy one. There's no shortage of laundry, mess, or noise. On one of my late night up alone excursions (anytime you find time to be alone when you have children is like going on an excursion), I had some time to think. The house was … Continue reading Your Home is the Holder of a Myriad of Memories
