Marriage Isn’t For You

Worth the read!

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Perhaps each…

Does your child have a cell phone?

Great post, food for thought, I’ve addressed this issue on my blog before and I left a comment…what are your views on this topic?

When I was a little girl, I remember my father getting a cell phone for our car. It was the size of a box! It was HUGE! I thought it was the coolest thing in the world and I totally felt like the Jetson family! (Little did I know cell phones would get to the size of a credit card!)

Fast forward to present day — cell phones are a way of life.

Whenever I’m out, I see kids with cell phones. They’re playing games. They’re talking on the phone. They’re taking photos. They’re taking videos. They’re texting. They’re tweeting or updating Facebook. There’s just so much to do with a cell phone nowadays.

In my mom group, we ALWAYS have a discussion about cell phone usage for our kids – Does your child have one? What age did you get him or her one?

It’s different for every parent.

Emotional Openness in Relationships

Re blog of a post from my Writings of a Mrs blog.

ImageEmotional Openness in Relationships

We must first understand ourselves and know what we truly want and need before we can expect another to learn how to do so with us.

Life affords us so many opportunities and chances to show the person that we love that they matter, that we need them.  That they alone can fill a place of dependence and reliance that no other can fill.

Stop Talking and Communicate!

Writings of a Mrs Mommy

My Mr. and I we talk, a lot.   And we talk a lot with each other.  I know a lot of you are thinking, well that’s great, communication is a building block or even the main foundation of a good relationship and that is true.

But sometimes a little quiet is nice too.   You know how they say (who is ‘they’ anyway…?) you know you are really comfortable with someone when you can sit in a room together and be quiet together with out it being awkward?  Well that never happens with us, unless we are watching a movie, playing a video game, mad at each other or the kids are around etc. (which covers most of everyday..)

I love our conversations and I wouldn’t change it for a minute, well except the time I changed it for five…let me tell you about it.

The other night we did our…

Confessions of a Coffee Snob

Oh how I love my coffee! See you Monday morning…coffee in hand!

Writings of a Mrs Mommy

Ok be forewarned I will sound like a complete snob here but we all have our flaws right?

So the other morning we were out of coffee.  *Gasp* As I’m sure you can imagine, the Mr. and I drink coffee to help us peel open our eyes and function in the morning.  I walk almost blindly, with my hands waving in front of me to not bang into or trip on anything (especially children that would be bad) to the espresso machine and robotically perform the same exact function every morning.
