That’s What She Said

Sometimes I think the words spoken between Scott and I get sent through some sort of voice scrambler. Maybe we just choose to hear what we want to hear. Maybe we simply get into moods. There are occasions, when we just look at each other in total disbelief at the words that tumble out. One…

You’re a Good Wife

Sometimes it’s easier to feel like a failure than it is to feel as though I’m as good of a wife as those surrounding me. Part of this is a result of a the facade I see on social media, and part of it is a result of having such high expectations for myself. I…

My iPhone… We’re joined at the hip, my iphone and me. My iPhone is always by my side. It’s attached to my arm at the gym, it’s on my desk while I’m at work, it’s next to me on the couch while I’m watching TV, it’s on the table next to my plate while I’m…
