Do you struggle with God in prayer?

I was listening to a Christian radio program while driving home the other day, and started thinking about how I often struggle with God over things in prayer.  Sometimes that can be a good thing! ...more

life as a psychic mommy

Last week I made a statement. I set an intention, and that intention was met immediately by my husband and his friend who is a chiropractor. I declared for myself in my last blog that I desired to have a chiropractor help me heal my neck – within a day my husband had arranged a trade with a friend of his who is a chiropractor....more

Are monkeys more sexually evolved than we are?

Listener Question:  Tell me, why does dropping one’s drawers have to be the line of demarcation? Is that really the point of no return? If so, then why do you consider it as such? My studies of aboriginal Polynesian societies have led me to delve into customs of touching in other nearly nude societies, including those of primates, with whom we share 98% of our DNA. These societies have no drawers to drop, yet raised peaceful, sexually wise kids.Maryanne Answer: Good question: what about dropping one’s drawers creates such a hard line?...more

Size Does Matter

Since the dawn of time, women have been telling men that size doesn’t matter but, oh, how times have changed. Size does matter, at least when it comes to your benefits package. These days, as you stroll out into the single scene, you just might want to dangle your group health insurance card as a tantalizing offering to the opposite sex. For maximum appeal, make sure the side with the co-pay amount is clearly visible....more

March Madness - SAHM Project - Entry Eight

The month of March. I had never found anything particularly exciting about this span of 31 days that takes up space once a year. Sure, there is St. Patrick's day, a really neat celebration, especially for those of us of Irish decent. But aside from that, March has always just been there. My view on March has changed a bit. For some reason, the month of March has been ordained as a extremely important month in my life. For the last two years, March has held the most highly anticipated and exciting events to grace my existence. ...more

Happy Anniversary, Baby?

Last weekend, my husband was driving us back from a night in the city. I can’t remember the conversation between the kids and I, but when Bruce chimed in, his words tumbled out indecipherable. Syllabic babble. We poked huge amounts of fun at him before he could laugh at himself....more

I Married a Fireman

While I was fast asleep and dreaming of nothing more than being asleep, my husband's pager woke me up in the wee hours of a September morning. He responded to the station to find out that the fire was one of the big buildings on our city’s version of Main Street. He scrambled to throw on some pants and put in his contacts. With a quick kiss, he was out the door....more

The Case Against the Flawed (almost) SAHM - SAHM Project - Entry Seven

Self-evaluation is never easy. No one likes to admit when, or how many times, they are wrong. This is especially true for me. But, self-evaluation is necessary for any real, beneficial changes to occur in ones behaviors. And it seems on days that I am most adament about avoiding the blemishes on my character, my husband turns into a gigantic, gaudy mirror, waiting with baited breath to point out that I'm not as sweet as I claim to be. ...more
