For better or worse,
For richer or poorer
In sickness and health
In thicker or thinner…
Oh wait…that’s not in there. Well, it SHOULD be!
Today is John’s and my 31st wedding anniversary and here in this vlog I give you ALL the wisdom about marriage that I have gained in those 30 years! Ha, no, it’s true, people ask us what’s the secret to staying married for so long. It’s a good question considering how marriage throws two people together with opposite personalities, different upbringings, social and political standards, education values and different opinions about anything from child rearing to whether to watch Project Runway or Swamp People. And then we throw children in the mix!
So yeah, it’s a good question…and I give it my best shot at answering it. But the answer may surprise you.
Now it’s your turn…share with our vlogging community what you think it takes for a lasting marriage!
What in the world do hurricanes have to do with birthdays? For one thing, my birthday is smack dab in the middle of the busiest part of hurricane season. (A fact I didn’t know growing up in Rochester, NY, as I celebrated it up over Labor Day weekend–the weekend before school started. But I digress…) Anyway, join guest vlogger Sandi Lacey and I as we discuss–oh, so intellectually–the similarities between hurricanes and birthdays. Then, if YOU have celebrated a birthday in the last year…um…that means YOU…drop us a comment and let us know if your birthday was hurricane related or not. 🙂

How does my rear-end-shashaying-Queen-of-Sheba-cat Zoe remind me of myself? Tune in to find out! 🙂
After I posted this vlog, my friend Liz had this to say about my story about Zoe and Baby. It’s so good, I wanted to repost it here! “I can also relate to Zoe’s distraction, but sometimes I’m Baby, too – jealous when someone else is getting more attention than me, but running to and fro instead of just asking if I can have the “spa treatment” too:)”
Things aren’t always as they seem. When my new co-worker (and future husband) gave me the finger, I was a little taken back! Watch this video to see why he did what he did. 🙂
