Simple Ways to Show Your Husband You Love Him: Then, There's MY List!

My husband's niece is getting married in two weeks and the kids are ALL invited to, what they've begun to very dramatically refer to as, "the wedding". They also get to witness their father (you know, my husband) officiate over "the wedding". Garth (not his real name) recently became an ordained minister (because his niece and her future husband asked him to) and for $25, or something like that, so can you!!! [ducks to avoid lightning bolt] Aaaaanyway, the kids CANNOT wait to be able to say, "That's our dad, Reverend Garth (not his real name) up there!" even if... Read more →

When it Rains, It Pours and Other Stupidly Obvious Things

You know that awesome feeling, when you've managed to handle some really difficult aspect of your life, sort of like mastering a jigsaw puzzle: everything falls into place, without banging them with the side of your fist? Yeah, this is NOT one of those times. Cue vague-blogging: dude, it's friggin' pouring, the lights are flickering and, well, Imma need BIGGER fists. What doesn't help: when you've got friends and family going through some really difficult stuff (some requiring the use of both fists, at the same time, even) and, well, am I the only one about to go all...HULK SMASH!!!...and...

So, What's the WORST That Can Happen?

I have a hard time believing that my husband, Garth (not his real name) and I have been together for 24 years: we met on a blind date in July of...[reaches for calculator]...1989 and were engaged by November. Because any man who hands his date a handkerchief...in the middle of blowing snot during one of the most saddest movie endings in history...and then takes that same handkerchief back from her...all snotted up and everything...is worth hanging onto, verdad? Long story, short (you're welcome!): what makes our relationship work (most of the time) is that Garth (NHRN) is very good at... Read more →

Our Stay, Play and Eat Weekend at Morey's Piers

My family and I were very honored to have been invited, as special guests of Morey's Piers, to spend the weekend in Wildwood, NJ and meet the famous Morey brothers, in person. Okay, so I was THRILLED!!! I got to revisit some of my favorite childhood memories of summertime(s) past: when my twin brother and I would spend our days playing on the beach, as my parents sunned themselves while listening to my dad's favorite doo-wop radio station (WCBS FM 101.1), and then follow the parade of flip flops, begging our parents for "Please, just one more quarter?!?" to play...
