Going into motherhood, I definitely expected to have less time for myself. With a job, a baby and a husband, who has time for a life, right? Wrong. As I quickly discovered, my biggest challenge isn’t that I can’t find time for myself; it’s that I won’t.
Yes, you read that right.
For the longest [...]
This is a post about PMS. And how it can totally ruin my marriage.
Before I had Kaylin, I’d never been one to suffer from PMS symptoms like mood swings and irritability. I’d just get bloated and crampy, which were wonderful excuses to eat all the chocolate and/or ice cream I wanted.
Recently, however, I [...]
The husband has been away for the last six days, scuba diving in Bali with J, another friend and a group of others. Some people are surprised that I let him go, which in turn surprises me, because I would never forbid him from going (yes, I’m one of those “I want you to want [...]
On the eve of our fifth wedding anniversary, hubby and I slept in separate rooms. No, it wasn’t because of a fight, although we did have a fight about the fact that we were sleeping in separate rooms, it was because hubby wouldn’t let me leave baby Kaylin to sleep in her room by herself. [...]
One of the things that annoy me about hubby is how he won’t answer my questions. He says he does, but really, if I can’t hear his mumbled, under-his-breath response, does it count? He says aye, I say nay. And our debate goes on.
To me, if you’re going to respond to someone, the onus [...]
I don’t mean punctuality – I will be the first to admit I’ve often shown up a little later than I would have liked for lunch dates and appointments; I mean like when someone is waiting for you at your door to pick you up, or the family is waiting for you so they can [...]
Some months ago, hubby had a Samsung Omnia. It used to drive me crazy because it didn’t always ring when there was an incoming call, and few things annoy me as easily and quickly as hubby repeatedly not answering his phone (what if there’s an emergency?!).
After a while, hubby finally conceded that the phone [...]
The first time I went with hubby to the emergency room because he’d strained a back muscle playing basketball and couldn’t move – this is after he underwent surgery for a torn ankle ligament and subsequently sprained his other ankle several times – I tried to get the doctor to tell hubby basketball is [...]
I know some women who do, but Y says men generally do not have the same concern. Why should they, he says, they can be 40 and still date a girl in her 20s. Age is not a factor. In fact, for some women, the older a man is, the more attractive he becomes. So [...]
It struck me the other evening, while I was driving home from work, that Y and I grade the world using totally different scales. It sounds kind of silly now I type it out, that I only realise this four years into our marriage, but even though I knew we were very different, I’d never [...]
