(You Drive Me) Crazy

“…I just can’t sleep.  I’m so excited, I’m in too deep. Whoa, crazy, but it feels alright. Baby thinking of you keeps me UP ALL NIGHT!” I’m not sure if that’s exactly how Elijah would describe his lovely wife, but that’s how I picture him. Singing along to the CD I bought him for his…

We Both Go Down Together

It’s a little past 7:30 on Sunday evening. The house is unusually quiet, the kids and husband in bed; eerie, yet strangely comforting. This is one of those happenings that can only be explained by a frozen picture of me on the couch laptop in hand and the words “48 HOURS EARLIER” scrawled across the…

Tree Hugger

My husband likes hobbies. He doesn’t have just one or two, he’ll start any new hobby so long as it’s interesting (and costly). He’s been through countless different interests during our years together, and while some (like photography) have stuck, other’s (RC cars) haven’t been able to hold his interest longer than the first $500….

Picture Perfect

Elijah is an extremely talented photographer. For example: So why is it impossible for him to take a good picture of me? Ever? For example: Sure, as I was looking through our photo library I found a few good shots of me. But mostly, my photos look similar to the ones shown above. I can’t…

Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong

Do you know how far a man will go to prove his wife wrong? I do. Or at least I know how far my husband will go to prove me wrong. I don’t blame him. He so rarely gets to be right he’s willing to do almost anything for a chance to point out any…
