One of the biggest challenges following the death of a loved one is the additional (and often unexpected) loss of our old lives. With this giant sea change comes the opportunity to create a new life.
After our loved one dies, we realize that our lives will never, ever be the… Read full post »
So far, I haven’t said anything about Robin Williams’ death because I haven’t had much to add. But after reading a few awesome blog posts today, I found myself thinking about this whole idea of public grief and what we choose to do with it. Brene Brown’s post… Read full post »
As most of you know, Colorado was hit by massive flash flooding a little over a week ago, wrecking havoc across the state. Ken and I were lucky, with only a few inches of flooding in the basement. I wish I could say that was the case for… Read full post »
It’s been eight months since my mom passed away and one of the things I still struggle most with is giving myself permission to a) feel my grief when it comes up and b) do whatever it is I need to do to take care of myself.
As a former revolutionary freedom-fighter (ha! in my mind, maybe) I can be way rougher on Ken than I need to be. Or at least way rougher than some of my friends.
Then I read a couple of articles that helped me put things into perspective. The first… Read full post »
With Father’s Day right around the corner, I’d like to take a few minutes to celebrate our men. Because as much as we complain about them, do we really ever tell them how much we appreciate them?
Why is that?
Well, I think it’s because we expect way too much… Read full post »
If there’s one thing I’ve learned this last year, it’s that most of our problems revolve around a basic—but devastating—assumption: when things fall apart, our upset can almost always be traced back to the underlying feeling that we're not being seen or heard. That… Read full post »
Frustrated and pissed off at your spouse? Wondering how you’ll get through another stressful, jam-packed holiday season?
Sure you are. We all are. It’s tough enough to stay on top of things during normal times, but how are you supposed to do that during times of high-stress… Read full post »
So how many times have you gotten angry--I mean really pissed--at your spouse? And how many times have you yelled at him, demanding that he change, that he do this instead of that, that for the love of God he stop driving you crazy.
Well, if you're human, I'm… Read full post »
So even though school's finally started, I'm still not getting a break. My older son's already home sick from school, my younger one's only been in preschool for 2.5 hours this first week and I'm quickly losing my mind.
The funny thing about all this is that last… Read full post »
One of the super-cool things about being the daughter of immigrants is knowing how to travel with copious amounts of food at all times.
For a long time, Ken used to make fun of me when he saw me jamming my bag full of food every time we went to… Read full post »
The more I talk about this blog with strangers, the more people open up to me with stories about their own marriages. Like the woman who told me this:

So here’s the super-duper Get Out of Jail Free Card my therapist friend Scarlet gave me after I’d moaned and groaned my way through dinner, telling her how I completely lost my mind the other day. It's a super-neat trick that's already saved my ass on more than… Read full post »
