Sometimes when you snore, I rest my hand on your arm, in the valley between your elbow and bicep. One more deep breath, exhale, and you are still. The warmth of my palm persuades you to rest easy. My hand slips away, to hide under my cheek. Minutes pass, and I lay uneasily in the … Continue reading Persuasive Sleep
I cuddle back under the sheets on your side of the bed after you leave with the kids to school. It's always a lil warmer than my side, and it's better for my shoulder I say. Bunch the t-shirt you wore last night around my neck. The soft aroma of your cologne and Dove soap … Continue reading Comfy T-shirt
How to get away with Mur...RIAGE! Ha! Marriage! Yes, I almost said Murder; but both go hand in hand if you ask 40-50% of the population. MARRIAGE: It's supposed to be a "Merry-Age"? But for a lot of people it's more like a slow torturous death. The plus side is you can always just pull the … Continue reading How to get away with Mur…MARRIAGE!
When I was 5 years old, I didn't have many aspirations-aside from laying on my back on the living room floor, drinking a bottle of yoo-hoo chocolate milk, while watching the latest Woody Wood Pecker cartoon or Chilly Willy. Seriously, who didn’t love singing, “My name is Chilly Willy. I’m frozen through and through.” Ah, … Continue reading Carpe What?
This weekend we attended a destination wedding in Colombia. ****** We overcrowded a large chiva bus that drove us around town blasting music. There was dancing in the aisles, and much cheering each other on as we, unsanitarily, gulped whiskey from a bottle we passed around; several bottles, actually. We wore printed straw party hats … Continue reading Construction
I received a package the other day. I often get packages at home because I do a lot of online shopping. Yes, I love buying stuff, but I'm really not big on malls. I can't say that I enjoy walking around for hours, going from store to store, trying on countless outfits, just to leave … Continue reading Shipping and Handling
As I lay in bed last night by my husband, fully clothed (this is relevant later), iPad propped up on my knees while I worked on this blog, my iPhone vibrated. It was my turn to roll in Dice with Buddies. Is this what relationships have come to...electronic conversations and gaming, side by side with … Continue reading Move Over, Me
November 25, 2012 Last night I saw a shooting star. Bright & hopeful, it ascended. I followed its orange-gold trail as it rocketed across the sky, and smiled in wonderment at this message from Above. A few, too brief seconds. I thought about my wish as my eyes descended upon the lake. They followed the … Continue reading A Shooting Star
March 23, 2013 ::Law and Order Voice:: This is a true story. The names have not been changed because nobody got murdered or hurt; victimized, maybe. Oh what a night.... Last night to be exact. It all started when I finally got all the kids to sleep. It was 10:30 pm, and I got this … Continue reading The Night my Husband was Right
April 7, 2013The kids are asleep. I often begin this way because once you become a parent most of your time revolves around work or your kids; any free time is precious and worth talking about, hence the interesting story that follows. “I’m gonna take a shower,” I tell my husband. As I walk down … Continue reading The Loo
