Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)

That’s what I’m talking about! Heck yes. I went back to the gym this evening and burned 300 more calories at the treadmill. I got a second wind! Who knew that would happen? Go me! It’s been a great day. I got an email stating that there would be no contest results until this timeContinue reading “Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)”

There’s a reason we call them “private parts”.

Dear Amy: My wife’s best friend recently went through a period where she was unhappy in her marriage. She began sexting with willing male partners and then sharing some of the pictures she had received with my wife. I know about this because my wife asked me to fix the WiFi on her phone. WhileContinue reading “There’s a reason we call them “private parts”.”

The ghosts of friends past.

Dear Amy: I really identified with the letter from “Ghosted by a Friend,” in fact, I thought that letter could be about me, because I’m the one who does this to others. I can cut people out of my life, (work or personal), in a heartbeat. It’s a learned behavior from my parents. My siblingContinue reading “The ghosts of friends past.”

Naughty!

I can’t tell you all how much I’ve enjoyed writing my new series, Naughty Isle. I’m on volume 2, and I’ve written 5,000+ words for it since I started the doc three days ago. It’s total fantasy fulfillment. Naughty fiction… who knew? But it’s just so loving, ya know? It’s adult, consensual (in a heavilyContinue reading “Naughty!”

Sharing the prayers?

Dear Amy: My husband had knee replacement surgery at a Catholic hospital last week. The first few weeks of his physical therapy are done at our home. The first session was today.

False virtue alert! False virtue alert!

Dear Amy: My daughter is toxic. She and her husband live with me, but with my help of a hefty down payment they will soon be moving out. I am looking forward to their absence. I am thinking of changing the locks once they leave. My abrasive daughter tends to get angry and then cutContinue reading “False virtue alert! False virtue alert!”

Fried pickles, anyone?

Dear Amy: Several years ago, my husband and I visited his brother and wife for a vacation. We stayed with them and relied on them for transportation. One night, we went out to dinner. His brother ordered some fried pickles as an appetizer. My husband told him he had never had one and reached overContinue reading “Fried pickles, anyone?”

Opinions versus advice?

Dear Amy: Can you help me to understand the boundaries of offering advice? Coronavirus-related circumstances mean my 35-year-old daughter must make an employment decision involving relocation. From experience, I have insights into her potential relocation choices that she does not have. What I know on this topic could affect her ultimate happiness. She hasn’t askedContinue reading “Opinions versus advice?”

Wow. Is four advice columnists a record tonight?

Dear Amy: Our 28-year-old daughter recently became engaged to a wonderful young man. We couldn’t be happier for them. They plan to marry in two years, after they complete their graduate degrees. So, what could go wrong? His parents are adamant that our daughter take her fiance’s last name when they are married. She hasContinue reading “Wow. Is four advice columnists a record tonight?”
