A fun blog post about many things.

It’s hot. Like, really, really hot. Like Frosty-the-Snowman-just-died-in-two-seconds-and-now-I’m-traumatized-by-his-death-all-over-again hot. And humid. Did I mention humid? And it’s not even July or August yet! Send help! Things are going well. I went to the gym late last night and wound up sleeping until 1:20 PM today. I’d like to get up two or three hours earlier,Continue reading “A fun blog post about many things.”

What else can be said?

Dear Annie: My “Laura” is the light of my life. It’s been more than a year since we found each other, but my whole body still shakes with anticipation every time I see her. Recently, though, I can’t help but feel a growing tension between us. This is my first real romantic relationship, and IContinue reading “What else can be said?”

The good advice columnist, the bad advice columnist.

Dear Annie: My husband and I got married right before the pandemic. Before the marriage, we lived in different states, 3,000 miles apart. After we got married, the pandemic split us apart again geographically for eight months. We finally got back together, and I was glad to get the opportunity to work from home withContinue reading “The good advice columnist, the bad advice columnist.”

See the light!

Dear Amy: I’m struggling. We started a business and had a baby during the pandemic. My wife and I have become reclusive (especially me). The isolation has caused me to lose my social graces. Basically, I just feel annoyed by everyone. I don’t want to get together with people. My increased presence on social mediaContinue reading “See the light!”

A disastrous sleepover and some negative career advice!

Dear Amy: Recently my oldest daughter had a 15th birthday party sleepover weekend. Her best friend, as well as my nieces and nephews, spent the weekend celebrating with her at our home. Sunday morning at around 2 a.m., my husband woke me up to tell me that he caught my 15-year-old nephew having sex withContinue reading “A disastrous sleepover and some negative career advice!”

Ohh, Ask Amy! You went there!

Dear Amy: My best friend suffers from PTSD and other mental health issues, and has been suicidal. This has been a particularly tough year for her, and she pushed away several friends after they hurt her, leaving me as one of her only remaining confidants (she isn’t in touch with her family, for good reason).Continue reading “Ohh, Ask Amy! You went there!”

Grief bites!

Dear Amy: My husband died very suddenly a few months ago of covid. This was a second marriage, as my first husband died young, of cancer. When I reach out to my sister, she gives me advice about how to deal with it. I know she means well, but she really has no idea whatContinue reading “Grief bites!”

There’s more to both of these!

Dear Amy: More than 35 years ago, when my husband was 19, he had sexual relations on two occasions with an older woman, who later informed him that he was the father of her two children. His paternity was never proved, as she was known to be dating others at the time. I met myContinue reading “There’s more to both of these!”

Generational drama!

Dear Amy: My husband has two siblings and several nieces and nephews. His brother’s daughter — our niece — is pregnant, and everyone is genuinely excited about the baby. Our issue is that a few years ago my very generous and kind father-in-law (her grandfather) gave her funds to attend college. We don’t know howContinue reading “Generational drama!”

What are you saying?

DEAR ABBY: After a bad breakup, a good friend and her husband offered me a room in their home. They have two wonderful teenagers. Then the pandemic came, and we all became infected. What started out as a few months’ plan for me to get back on my feet has lasted 14 months. I haveContinue reading “What are you saying?”
