Why hello, neglected blog. I had no idea that I had been absent for an entire month!I suppose I've been doing my best to be action-oriented as I discussed in this post in early January. I've never been great at keeping New Year's resolutions which is why I rarely make them, but I'm really trying … Continue reading New Year’s Follow-up
Do you and your significant other kiss much? I recently ran across an article on the evolution of kissing. Check it out here as well as this one. The first summarizes a recent study from Oxford University examining people’s motivations for kissing new partners. It was once thought that kissing simply played a role in … Continue reading Why Do We Kiss?
Last night Gil and I were in the middle of some much needed coupledom. I’m talking sex, and yes, it had been a while. Because, well, life gets crazy and hectic, and often these meshing together sessions are at the bottom of our to-do list. Things were moving along quite smashingly when Gil’s phone … Continue reading How to Balance Work and Sex
I have to get my anxiety under control. I'm just not sure how to do this. After years of seeing therapists and psychiatrists, I have no confidence whatsoever in any "expert's" ability to adequately treat this condition.Am I so far in the weeds right now that I can't think straight and make a decision on … Continue reading How Can I Tame this Anxiety?
Why is it that as soon as I write about how well things are going, like I did in my last post, THE SHIT HITS THE FAN?!! Gil had an early meeting yesterday, so he wasn't able to take the boys to school.

These feelings have invaded my psyche since having children, and they’ve made me examine my attitude towards success, more specifically, how I define it. My children are now five and four … Continue reading How Do You Define Success?

I'm writing this quickly, so I'll do my best to summarize the main happenings, particularly the situation with Gil. I noticed a difference in him last weekend when he arrived to pick up … Continue reading I Never Cease to be Amazed in this Marriage

Today I logged onto Facebook for the first time in a couple of weeks. I have to do this for my sanity. I do communicate through personal messaging, but I limit my interactions on the newsfeed. I had what felt like a million notifications. Since my last login, I've had a birthday, AND Gil and … Continue reading On Authenticity
Once again I'm writing about my marriage. Things with Gil are not good. It seems I always come back to this. I've tried in every way that I know how, but I get discouraged when I look at him and know he has little ownership in our problems. He's made it clear over and over … Continue reading Should I Stay or Should I Go?
