Rules. Expectations.

Posted in olechik27

These are similar, but sometimes the lines between them are blurred. I thought I was getting the hang of the rules AND expectations for being a good mom and a good wife… I have yet to really “get it” though. These rules and expectations seem to be ever changing and I can never just be there in that glorious place where I’ve GOT IT! So let me examine a few of these with you and see where it all falls, I will start with the mom rules – I seem to be MUCH MORE on target here, but not for…

For The Time Being

Posted in C7

Go. Go. Go. Do. Do. Do. Rush. Rush. Rush. I feel like my mind is always going and that I’m always trying to accomplish something. Whether it’s something at work, a clean house, a stocked fridge ….every day, it’s something new to check off the list. But lately, my heart has been hurting because my rushing around has caused me to miss out on something that I’ll never get back, and that’s quality time with those I love. My son will be grown before I know it, and I didn’t snuggle with him because I had to get down stairs…

Okay, I have to admit when I have done a terrible job at something. Lately it has been the role of wife, daughter, and even “Momma” to my fur-babies. I have caught myself looking with disgust at my husband when he walks in the room, avoiding personal contact with my live-in father – who seems is doing the same thing to me (could it be a family trait?!?) – and telling my dogs at night when I return home, “No – Go Lay Down, Momma is tired.” Turn that frown upside down….Not so easy. I’ve fallen into that slump….the little…

My Perfect Husband

Posted in ChickTwenty

Everyone loves my husband. It’s actually quite annoying. Like his father, he has an innocence about him that most find endearing. He has the most beautiful way of bringing humor to uncomfortable situations. I find his methods to be both adorable and infuriating. For example, I hear this story all the time. He was back-sassing his mother in the car when he was in high school and she lost it. She told him he was a son of a bitch, to whom he replied, “Wouldn’t that make you the bitch?” She busted out laughing and he never got in trouble.…

Gift Wrap or Saran Wrap?

Posted in chik11

The art of giving is a beautiful thing.  With the holiday season upon us, what is the best gift to give to the one you love? It was 21 years ago that I married the love of my life.  We began our adventure of life together by moving to Kentucky, so that he could start his neurosurgery residency.  Back then, residents worked about 120+ hours a week during their six year residency program.  I worked as well, long hours, but not quite as long as him.  As newlyweds, we didn’t have a care in the world.  No kids and no…

Are you pregnant?

Posted in ChickTwenty

I dated my husband for five years before he proposed. For at least four of those years, my life consisted of “When is he going to propose?!” and “You aren’t going to wait forever!” Really? If I make the decision to spend the rest of my life with someone, they are clearly worth waiting for, right? I always found that so stupid. Regardless, that time in my life is finally over! We tied the knot. No sooner than AT MY WEDDING RECEPTION did the next phase in my life begin- the “When are you going to have kids?” chapter. The…

Sex Crazed (or not)

Posted in ChixC16

What has happened to me? It just doesn’t seem fair that life takes away your mojo when you get older. You’re supposed to wait to have sex until you’re married (yah right!)…..but what if you don’t find Mr. Right until you’re 40…..and all your mojo is starting to go down hill? When I was in my 20’s & 30’s I LOVED sex, but my relationship status was on again & off again….so the opportunity was not always present to satisfy one’s wants & needs. Flash ahead & I finally find Mr. Wonderful & sex should be plentiful…however as the years…

Blurred Vision

Posted in ChixC16

So I am just wondering…..If 2 men get married, how does anything get done around the house? Who notices you are out of milk and runs to the store? Who notices that the laundry still needs to be folded & put away? Who notices the dog got sick on the rug and cleans it up? Do they have magic fairies that run around & take care of all of that for them?? They must because men just don’t seem to notice the same stuff that we do.  They have no problem sitting for hours while there are 10 different chores…

Hey Ya

Posted in ladychick14

So lately I’ve been experiencing some feelings of self doubt and questioning every single decision I have ever made and those that I didn’t make. Being an artist and a musician I find solace in my music and tend listen to songs that apply exactly to my feelings. Lately I have been listening to a gorgeous, acoustic version of outkast’s hey ya and it sends chills up and down my arms and blasts a lightning bolt right through my chest. So what does this have to do with anything? Ok, here’s the deal. Recently I lost a very significant amount…

‘To Be Or Not To Be’

Posted in Chic#5

This is my life… So, I figured the best way to start this off would be with an introduction…Hi, I am a chick in my 30s, have a house, a job, a boyfriend who has two sons from a previous marriage, and together we have a beautiful little girl. Yes, we had a baby out of wedlock and I often get the question, “when are you two going to get married?” The answer is, we are NOT. Which brings me to the question, “what is marriage, really?” Why do people get married? This is something I have pondered for a…
