So the nice, not-too-young man I remet this weekend, is either not interested or an expert at pacing himself.  What I'm sure I couldn't take yesterday seems like an unattainable goal today.  Though our weekend was spent steeped in honesty about past episodes we missed in each other's serial dramas, what I want to tell him is that I could totally take him for who he is, not what he's done or what he thinks I want.  Like I explained to him...I've done the hard stuff, I just want someone to share it with, sounds corny but I'm at a loss for words.

What Does a Dog Know about Living a First Class Life?

Dogs: they have it all figured out; and because we are the more intelligent of the two, I suppose we think we have nothing to learn from them. My 9-month-old puppy so obviously and effortlessly puts himself first. I don’t fault him for this and, in fact, I applaud him. Let’s go through a few lessons we should learn from our four-legged friends:

So I sort of met someone this weekend....or rather re-met them.  Old friend from high school.  He lives out of town but asked to come and see me, but I deferred to travel to see him, and keep my home as a respit for me.  After a great weekend, I contemplated the idea of spiffing up the palace for an official visit.  I looked around to see what needed addressing besides the obvious cleaning, and in the corner of my room, like an old purse or courtesy hotel toiletries from my last trip is this stack of Christmas ornaments.

When friendship becomes an emotional affair

When friendship becomes an emotional affair

How would you define emotional infidelity? Dr. Dale Atkins explains what it is and how you know if you're an emotional cheater. What is it? Emotional cheating is about forming meaningful attachments with people other than your partner in ways that prevent your partner from having that deep emotional intimacy with you.
