My husband thought he'd give it a try....

So we sat and put this post together.

This is how he see's himself

This is how his compnay sees him

This is how his children see him....

This is his wife (ME!) see's him

This is how our pets see him

This is how he thinks our neighbors see him


  1. And how do I see your husband Babe - as a great big muscly hunk who is one day gonna punch my lights out for flirting with his gorgeous wife.

  2. Now if you can get him to try the vacuum cleaner too ... :o) (or maybe he already does -- I guess I shouldn't presume). Cool post!

    To Love, Honor and Dismay

  3. i loved this!
    i think your husband looks great in eyeliner. dont let anyone tell you different.

    in fact i loved this so much i might steal the idea.

    know what else? i forgot to linkie-squinkie you. may i?

  4. Tommy m'dear, my husband would never punch anyone out. He's a sweetheart and a pacifist. I think you'd like him.

    Andrew, welcome to my blog. Yours is qute entertaining. And my husband does in fact use the vacuum cleaner, as well as doing dishes, laundry and windows. He's amazing.

    FN I'd be honored to be linked. I had to have my hubby sit down and read your post on the junkyard. You have an incredible way with words.

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always...

I rely on the kindness of strangers...

Or not so much strangers as readers of my miserable blog.

I received a beautiful card in the mail from my long-tine reader (perhaps my ONLY reader) that lifted my heart. Thank you, G. Parkes. It was kind of you to think of me. Seriously---you are so sweet. Thank you.

Perhaps we can meet in person one day. I'll be in Utah after Conference. We'll see how it goes.

I've been caring for my autistic grandson since July. It seems longer sometimes---and that's not a complaint. I adore this little man. He holds my heart. He fills my arms and my heart in the way that my own small babies used to do. When mine reached the age where they didn't want to be in my arms any longer, I felt their absence. Their absence from my arms was heavier than actually having them in my arms. It was an ache that is difficult to describe, a phantom pain where something once was but now is no longer.

Before my husband and I went to the cabin th…

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…
