Valentine's Day may be a farce of a holiday, pushed by companies to force you to buy things you don't need, but you know what? It's a reminder -- not just for couples, but for everyone -- that relationships need feeding and in this fast-paced world, we need every reminder we can get.
"Honey, do you want to go for a walk over to our new house?"I knew something was up from the very moment my husband posed this question to me the other day, but I went along with it because I was curious.You see...Getting my husband to agree to walk the dogs with me is about as difficult as getting my husband to throw an empty milk carton into the trash...It's damn near impossible!...more
I marvel at my husband. I'm in awe of his ability to do things I could not do. Over the years, I've travelled with him on his job watching him effectively carry out what seem like monumental tasks all while managing an extensive team effortlessly. Yet, sometimes my husband needs help with the simplest things. I ask myself,"How did this educated man get along without me?"I don't say that in arrogance but rather with a chuckle.In all the knowledge and skill my husband embodies, there are those little technical things:...more
Are you afraid of bugs? Being that I'm a girl, I can answer this question honestly without having to feel embarrassed.

Two words...Sleep deprivation....more
A funny thing happened this past weekend. My husband had to take a trip to Michigan to meet up with some old friends and music contacts, and I elected not to go. Well, let me back up a moment...When my husband first told me that he was going to take a trip to Michigan to meet up with some old friends (and by "friends," I mean good-looking single women), I insisted that I join him on his little rendez-vous down memory lane. Of course, we argued about whether or not it was pertinent that I tag along for this excursion. ...more
Did you hear the one about the Louisiana Justice of the Peace who refused to marry an interracial couple? I did. These stories just sort of pile up on us like loads of dirty laundry, and this one took me down the treacherous path of "I am not a racist but." (Note: You'll find part 2 of this post at this link.)
I love my politics with a nice dash of sex. True to my generation, I am a dirty detail vulture of the highest order. From Bill Clinton to Eliot Spitzer, I can name them all. I devoured the Starr Report in a couple of days, staked Jessica Cutler's blog before her Washingtonienne book deal, ran out and bought The National Enquirer in the middle of the night and performed endless Google searches for more, more, more.
“Do you think it's this intense because of the sneaking around?” she asked him.
“We're not sneaking around now are we?” he asked, caressing her cheek before leaning in for a kiss.
