I’ve lucked out with the last two “Gracious Wife” posts…. I’ve been able to write them with minimal conviction, because I tend to not be too sarcastic or nagging toward my husband. This post, however, I’ve been dreading, mainly because it hits home for me… I don’t want to write it, because it’s [...]

I’m taking a brief hiatus from the Gracious Wife series, because I haven’t had a chance to write anything lately and this post will sort of explain why…
During the summer, I only worked part time. I was home by 1 p.m. most days, and had several hours before Jason came home to both take care [...]

A few weeks ago, Jason and I started running together. We’re aiming for 3 times a week. The first day - awful. I hated it, and I let the world know. The second day I decided, why dread it? Why complain? Why look at the negatives? It turns out sooooooo [...]
