A Shared Life

When Eli at Coach Daddy asked me to do a guest post, I was thrilled.  Eli is awesome and fun and so is his blog.  His 6 Word Posts series is not to be missed, and he answers questions on Fridays, which is funny and informative all at the same time.  Like Bill Nye, but not as science-y.

What should I write?  I asked.  I’m nothing if not always woefully in need of an idea.  Woefully.

How about balance in the home?  Or…?  Or…?  Stop right there.  I’ll do the balance thing, I said brilliantly.

In my mind I say everything brilliantly.


“When my husband and I got married, we did most things together.”

Do you remember those days?  Back when life was shiny and new and the tasks to maintain it were equally distributed, and love and promise poured through your actions and words like a forgotten open tap, no matter if you were cleaning bathrooms or cooking dinner or tending the lawn together?

For me, those days are over, friends.  And nobody will accuse me of sugarcoating my suffering.

I may be a little dramatic.

Today, I’m excited about guest posting over at Coach Daddy about sharing a life and how that looks in my marriage today versus all those years ago.

Join me to read about how the distribution of tasks has changed in our married life over the years, and how I feel about that.  I won’t lie; it’s ugly.

I bring it back, though.  Brilliantly.  Sort of.

See you there!



  1. I agree - he really is great. Now off to read.

  2. Heading there now.
    You make me laugh even in your intros to other posts.


  3. For me, those periods are over, friends. And nobody will accuse me of sugarcoating my having difficulties.
