Dying Sucks for the Living|Dying Sucks for the Living
Death is not fun but we all end up doing it eventually. Dealing with death is not so easy on many levels, emotional, cleaning, legal and financial. http://www.associatedcontent.comarticle/2193593/dying_sucks_for_the_living.html

Giving me what I won’t give myself|
My husband has been trying to convince me for years that it is ok to pamper myself. Anyone who knows me knows I always put everyone else in my family first. Even when I have money to buy myself something I usually end up spending it on the kids. It is a bad habit, I know it is. Even when I need something I will put it aside to give the kids something they want. He has made it his mission to give me the things I won’t buy myself. He is even getting the kids involved. They like the idea of giving things to Mommy.
Take today for example. I had mentioned that I would like a new electric can opener a few weeks ago. When we were out shopping this week he suggested I pick one up. I said no, we had other things to buy. He showed up with an electric can opener for me today. I guess I should not be so surprised when he does things like this.
It is like the time I had a negative allergic reaction
to the soap we use. I guess they changed their formula or something. That night he showed up with a selection of handmade natural soaps
for me to try. It was appreciated. I loved the kiwi mango soap and use it all the time now.
When I complained about my old pans he showed up with a new pan every payday for two months. I now have a lovely set of pans, but could do with some pots. I am kind of afraid to mention it to him though. Who knows what he would show up with.
My husband is letting my kids help pick things to give me. They are little so it does take a bit of guidance so I don’t end up with a Barbie doll and Nerf dart gun again. Though, I did like the Barbie doll and Nerf gun because they gave me what they thought I would like.
My husband tells me all the time that I do nice things for them all the time so it is only fair that I let them do nice things for me. It is a hard argument to win. I know. I have tried. He knows I love incents
, aromatherapy oils, bubble bath and fresh ground coffee. For my birthday they gave me a coffee mug full of coffee beans and a little coffee bean grinder. It was a really nice gift. My son came up with the idea of coffee. My husband took it from there. I enjoyed the coffee, and use the grinder several times a day.
I overheard my husband asking our kids to pick between the Champagne or Heaven scented aromatherapy diffuser
for Christmas. I am actually hoping they do get it for me, even though I know it is really from my husband. I had read about a Reed Diffuser
oils online and have been interested in trying one ever since. Of course he remembers me talking about trying it so there is a good chance that is what I am getting.
I have to admit that I could get used to my family going out of their way to make me feel special. I like to think that the way they are making me feel is the same as I make them feel, special and important. I know I should put myself first more often but I just don’t seem to be able to. My family is always going to come first for me. That is part of being a parent for me.

How do you become motivated again?|
Some days it is hard to be motivated to write, or do anything. These days it just seems easier to sit on the couch in front of the TV then working. That is bad seeing as I am self employed. I don’t work, I don’t make any money. If I don’t put the effort into getting off the couch nothing gets done. The kitchen becomes a war zone, counter and sink full of dishes and the table covered with papers, mail, school bags and toys. The laundry becomes a mountain taller than my children. Making it all the more daunting to even start cleaning and that is just after one day of not doing anything.
How do you become motivated again? The need for money is there but it is always there. The desire to do something is there in the morning when I get up, but seems to be gone by the time the kids are out the door. Because I work for myself I have no one to kick my butt but me. If I don’t look for work or promote myself I don’t get any writing assignments or bookings. So everything is up to me and on me. I have to be constantly promoting myself and working at finding work. Then I have to get it done. I have a lot of work to do but not much is something I would get paid for. It seems to be work trying to get work. Some days it is nice to sit back and do nothing. However once you get a day off it is hard to get back to work, especially as there is no quick payoff, but a waiting game hoping for work.
Eventually I realize that I have done nothing for days and have to find some way to become motivated again. I have to force myself to do something, anything and then I find that I actually get something done. So how to motivate yourself is to do something and keep on going. It helps when I get an assignment or a booking. Then I know my hard work pays off. Other days it is just a matter of doing what has to be done anyway and then finding a way to keep on working. The only way to get through this is to force myself to do something and then something else. Then suddenly I am working again, getting things done.

Writer's Block: Your Costume|
What ever looked good on me and let me do my job. I tend to like jeans and tee shirts but I could have some interesting costumes if I was a video game or cartoon character. I would like something with a corset like what the bar wenches had on in medieval times just because I know they are comfortable, are flattering for almost all women no matter if they are plus size or not, and give great back support. Also if you get the right one made they can stop knives or at lest slow them down. I am sure one could be made out of Kevlar or something like it as well. I would like spandex pants or tights under a cheerleader or Jetsons type skirt. The spandex pants would look ok under a skirt and keep me from showing more then I want to, and the skirt would help hide the not so small belly or butt that would not look so good in spandex alone. Hoping the “sexy” outfit would keep people underestimating me as they looked at what I hope would be a sexy distraction as I kicked their butts.
If you were the sort of cartoon or video game character that always wears a costume, what would you wear? Why?

Sex advice is really relationship advice|For the longest time people on Myspace keep asking us to start a Sex Advice Column. It seems there has been a huge lack of places where people can talk freely and get some honest non-judgmental information and advice about relationships, sex and more. I don’t understand this because there seems to be a lot of sites that have open forums to discuss sex and relationships. I guess people just have not spent the time looking, or are uncomfortable with talking on them so they are not getting the information they want.
The biggest pieces of relationship advice I can give are know yourself, accept yourself, and then talk with your partner and be honest about it. If you do not feel safe enough with the person to talk about your desirers and needs then you are either with the wrong person, have not been in the relationship long enough or don’t accept that part of yourself yet. If you cannot be honest to yourself and your partner both in your relationship and sexual needs then what is the point? Neither one of you will have the relationship you both deserve because your not letting yourself be open enough.
One of the biggest issues seems to be porn. Sure ladies like to look at hot guys but most do not become consumed by it the way some men (not all, not even most but some) find themselves with porn. Porn can cause problems in relationships. People are always asking about how to get their partner to stop looking or to get off their back for looking. It comes down to communication; respect and self-esteem, each person and relationship are different. Some people feel it is cheating or disrespectful for a man to even look at porn and others have no problems with it. Others are ok if it is something they do together and on the other side of the coin some are ok if the guy looks at porn when they are not around. The only thing you can do is talk about it and find out what is ok for everyone in the relationship.
It all comes down to communication. How can you expect to have great sex if your partner does not actually know what you want, what you like because you don’t tell them. If you are having lousy sex it is probably because neither one of you knows what the other wants or needs and are not willing to talk about it. Guess what, expect poor relationships and sex if you are not able to talk about things.
