Almost did it today.  Almost invited death at my wife's hands today.  Slip of the mind, a bobble of the tongue, a mismanaged comment...and I was almost about to be introduced to whatever happens once you stop breathing and your heart ceases beating. Think I overstate it?  Maybe. My...

I left my husband Consciously, subconsciously, emotionally, financially... physically but most of all spiritually It takes some time and a hell of lot of "you" work to remove yourself from a way of thinking about your life and your marriage. It takes a lot of hurt and a lot of pain to untwist...

I have to tell you why I put this hat on in the first place - My first royalty check came in the mail today...that IS NOT the comfortable...

Yesterday, I found out that my husband likes fruitcake. How could he? I feel betrayed. He’s committed a sin of omission. We’ve been together for 10 Christmases, and he had never admitted to this until now. I have two theories for his liking that dense, gooey mass—a waste of sugar and flour that...

Look at this amazing pot of choucrouteor sauerkraut, if you're German. My husband made it for dinner the other night. We had our friends François and Caroline, and the couple who ran the local charcuterie until they retired a year ago. My husband Haralds is a good cook, he first wooed me with a...
