Fit Me In

I was interviewing a man who was trying to put some life back into his marriage.

He said, "I just happened to see my wife's planner on the counter and was astonished at how many things she had on her list."

What he said next made me laugh.

He said, "I asked my wife, 'where do I fit in on your list'?"

I told him all he had to do was take one or two of the responsibilities on her list, take them as his own, and replace them with his name.

It's funny how great men just don't get it.

Camera Man

I remember when I did the shoot for Studio 5 on KSL TV. After we were finished, the camera man came up to us and said, "I have been divorced for 15 years. If I had known all of this then, I would still be married."

A cute little teenage girl came in my Salon today. We were all talking about divorce and how bad it is.

She said, "I am never never never going to get married." Then she added, "I'll just have kids without a husband. There is no way I am going to wait on a man like my mom does."

Of course I told her she wouldn't have to if she did it right.

I have a face book account but I don't know how to utilize all of the tools. Guess who does? All thirteen of my grandchildren. They are already planning on making a fan base for me and advertising any way they can. What a wonderful bunch of kids.

My New Editor

I got an email from my new editor, Kelly Konzak. She said the book was set to go to press in April.

She said, "Your book has been fun to read. It's refreshing to read thoughts and experiences of someone who believes so strongly in the family." She added, "I am sure it will be a valuable publication."

Letters From Children of Divorce

I had two teenagers in my Salon yesterday who were products of divorce.

I told them I was going to have them and others write letters explaining what they went through, and put them in my next book.

The were both very enthused and stated simultaneously that no one knows how bad it is until they go through it themselves.

I am very ashamed of myself. I haven't blogged since the first part of January.

I worked so hard to get a publisher, and now I guess I told myself I deserve a little rest. That is ridiculous. I have to stop being lazy and get back to blogging. There is so much more to say.
