Husband-Less Weekend

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

Baby Steps

Seeing how my husband and I will be moving into our brand new house pretty soon, we've been asking around to see if anyone we know might have something that they can contribute....more

Husband vs. Wife - Who Loses in Relationships?

So my husband sent me a tweet at @nikkiflores yesterday, directing me towards an article that he said he could relate to: 15 Things Men Lose to Relationships. Upon reading said article, I couldn't resist putting my two cents in...Alleged Loss No. 1: Games and Toys...more

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been obsessed with The Beatles. When most girls were bopping along to Ace of Base and the New Kids on the Block, I had John, Paul, George and Ringo blasting on my Walkman. (Yes, I know this dates me, and I don't care.) I read tons of Beatles books, saw their whacked out movies, put posters up all over my bedroom walls, and I even got into the whole "Paul is Dead" movement. ...more

The Ex Files and Then Some

I knew that it was going to be an interesting weekend the very moment my husband turned to me and asked, "Honey, how would you like to meet my old high school sweetheart?" Although I was a bit put off by the request at first, my husband eventually explained how he really just wanted to get his old high school friends together for a mini-reunion. I resisted for a bit, but he assured me that it wouldn't be awkward. ...more

Newlywed Dilemma: Toaster vs. Hamster-Mobile

A lot has happened since the homeward bound scenario post...For starters, my husband and I have decided the get a new car! Can I just take a time-out real quick and give props to the hubby, who without me asking, took it upon himself to construct a multi-columned comparison chart between all the cars in the running. He came up with this high-tech ranking system (5 is best, 1 is worst), and then systematically ranked each car feature available on the cars we ...more

Say what?

Recently, my husband's been going back and forth with the notion that he may have Adult Attention Deficit Disorder (AADD). He's complained a couple of times to me that he has problems concentrating on things that he doesn't find interesting. (Of course, my first response to that was...Um yeah...You don't have AADD...We all find it hard to concentrate on boring things!) On a serious note though, we've started noticing a couple of things together that can easily be explained away if he were diagnosed with AADD. ...more

Hasta La Vista, Neighbors!

BIG NEWS PEOPLE! Words cannot express the supreme level of bliss my husband and I have been experiencing for the past week! *Sighs loudly and even more annoyingly than ever before* Why am I so happy?!?! THE NEIGHBORS HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING! (Literally!) No more groups of little kids stomping and screaming above us when they should be in bed, and instead their parents let them play an indoor game of tag! ...more
