Rose: We went to the movies, and my husband, they wouldn’t let him sit with the whites, but I could.
Roland: We came in hand in hand and the man told me, “You can’t sit up there, no, you have to go upstairs.” …. So, I thought, “Okay, we’ll go upstairs.” He said, “No, she has to go downstairs.” I looked at the man and I said, “Wait a minute…her body is just as black as mine, and she’s my … Keep Reading!!!
Happy Valentines Day!
Did you know there are many Greek words for love and each has a different meaning?
Love is such a complex feeling; I like the idea of multiple terms for this feeling, as it seems more reasonable than using one general word.
So, here are the terms for love and love styles in Greek! Let me know which term you identify with most. (Although, most humans feel and live out every type of love listed).… Keep Reading!!!
“I’ve looked on many women with lust. I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me.” Freakin’ Jimmy Carter, man, he lays it out there.
Okay, so I’ve had this fixation on Gavin DeGraw who’s a singer/pianist no one seems to’ve heard of. I decided it was time to Take Action in order not to commit adultery in my heart. Henry and I have been together 13 years. Something … Keep Reading!!!
What happens if your kids catch you having sex?
We’ve had parents write us concerned that their children will find them having sex and be psychologically damaged.
Many have said their concern has gotten in the way of their sex life (i.e. this fear is of such a concern that they sometimes avoid having sex with their partner.)
I think the fear, to a point, is rational, but when it starts interfering with living a healthy life, the fear … Keep Reading!!!
Strengthen or Evolve: Debate and Counterpoint Reading:
We arrive home from Palm Springs, and within minutes I hear the hair clippers.
Then this emerges:
Brian: Silent and straightfaced.
Me: “Your mohawk is crooked.”
Brian turns around and goes back in the bathroom where I hear the clippers go on again.
Brian: “Fine, but I’m keeping the mustache!”
Me: “Quick, grab me some peroxide and hairspray!”
Me: “I need to make sure I am a good Loni Anderson to your Burt Reynolds.”
Brian turns around … Keep Reading!!!
I posted the photo above yesterday on the blog Facebook page, and it was the first time I could visibly see the number of “likes” of the page drop within seconds.
I’ll give the people who were offended some credit, because they went quietly without any “I’m leaving” announcement (I still don’t understand the point of that. Not every facebook page is going to be one you decide is right to follow. Just unlike the page, don’t make it … Keep Reading!!!
My husband gives me the oddest compliments that make me smile and woo me all over again.
Brian: “You would have been a great lawyer.”
Me: “Aw, thank you…”
Brian: “You remind me of this guy.” Points to the TV where I see this guy:
(Prosecuter for the Jodi Arias case reaming the ridiculous psychologist on the stand.)
Me: “That was best compliment I think you’ve ever given me.”
What was the best compliment you have ever … Keep Reading!!!
When I returned from my month long African adventure, I hadn’t seen Brian in over two weeks. We were still talking about our spa and massage experiences in South Africa and so I had (what I thought was) a genius idea to do home massages. Affordable and fun…or so I thought.
I bought special oil, we put on Skyfall, and I gave Brian a full-body massage for the entire movie. Brian returned the favor later that night. Awesome, right? Well, … Keep Reading!!!
The divorce rate in America is hard to get a good estimate of because some states don’t disclose their divorce rates (including California, rumored to be among the highest in divorces).
It is estimated that 34-55% of all US marriages end in divorce. Even on the low end the numbers are not very cheery.
People who “attachment parent” have been accused of causing divorce due to their lifestyle. I am assuming the estimated statistic above is not made … Keep Reading!!!
Well, it happened. Brian had his first interview.
We received an email a few weeks ago for an interview request. What made us excited was it wasn’t for me, it was for Brian! They wanted to get his views on AP. This is the first time anyone has ever asked to talk to him about it.
“It’s about damn time!” Brian said. I agreed. We were excited and said yes before we had time to really let … Keep Reading!!!
