Fibromyalgia and, perhaps, something unforseen
Today was a doctor appointment like almost every other, except the doctor actually admitted that, while my pain is indeed real, they are limited in the medical field. Cliff notes: As I only have the anti-SSB and not the anti-SSA, doctor believes it is fibromyalgia with signs of the onset of something we cannot yet detect. Gave me the following options: drugs and/or thinking about something ...
My Life in PR: Top 10 Blog Posts of 2011
I had once been anonymously criticized for identifying myself by my husband’s career, despite the posts about my own life, activities, and accomplishments. Today I want to share a pretty great accomplishment with you. Remember the blog post I wrote about live tweeting for Inklings? It came in at number four for the top 10 blog posts of 2011 on ProfNet Connect, which is an online...
PMS and your relationship: Mastering the...
Marriages, relationships, and the world in general, would be better served if women were sent to the spa the week before their period. I’m serious. Think back: one week you’re so happy, you feel amazing, in love, and you’re doing your thing. The next week you’re miserable, on the verge of tears, and ready to spit in your significant others’ eye — because...

When it rains...
Thankfully, my husband is here to enjoy the rain with me. While it is actually raining, neither of us are enjoying it. He got home on Monday, which is when I first started coming down with, well, my doctor is still figuring it out. Yesterday morning I had the cold headache and the tingle throat. By 3:30 pm I could hardly talk or swallow. I did everything I could not to cry over my keyboard...
Her life as a band "wife:" guest post from Megan...
One of the best parts about being on Tumblr is being given the opportunity to meet other women in my shoes and to build that safety net. I’ve gotten messages from dozens of women since I started the blog. One of them is Megan C. She’s a sweet girl with a man on the road. Her story follows. If you would like to contribute, please leave a message in my ask. Well, to start off, my name...
skymovessideways asked: You're wonderful. I am getting married next year and I read your posts on both your wedding day and marriage. Truly beautiful. Thanks for being such an amazing person and letting it shine through your writing.
Please stop kicking me while I am down. My husband is on tour and it feels as though I haven’t seen him at all in two months. I’m working hard to get everything done to buy our first home and it is incredibly stressful, especially without Jay here. I got rear-ended by an idiot in a pick-up truck, causing damage to the trunk of my car, and to the muscles on my left side —...

Adventures on the road to homeownership
I am so glad this week is over. Although, I do wish the weekend were one day longer this time around. Who doesn’t, right? It’s been a very busy week at work putting together a presentation for a really cool client. We went into NYC to present and catch up on what’s new, among other things. I was telling my boss and colleague at a dinner party on Friday that I’d love to...
Watertown Resident Makes Lent a Way of Life
Lent comes but once a year for even the most devout Catholic, but for Watertown’s Danne Dzenawagis, it has become a way of life – despite being a self-described “lapsed Catholic.” Like many of us, Danne Dzenawagis makes New Year’s resolutions that she has a hard time keeping, but she has taken her effort online in the form of a blog, which recently was nominated for an award from a ...
frubes asked: Your husband is in my city today! I'm unfortunately not going to the show, so I don't know why I'm telling you this. It just makes the world feel very small! x
singuntilyoublackout asked: Just found your blog, I instantly love it, makes me feel so much better about when my boyfriend goes on tour. That whole feeling of being supportive, but at the same time jealous is the worst and I always feel really bad for feeling like that, but it's nice reading your posts and seeing that you sometimes feel similar :) Also, Defeater are excellent. Saw them in February in Bristol. Amazing.
tinybirdsdidsing-deactivated201 asked: i'm a new follower, and i absolutely loved finding your blog. my boyfriend of almost 3 years is in a band that formed at the beginning of this year, and whilst i'm thrilled that they're doing so well touring and stuff, i miss him so much when he's gone, and it's lovely to know and read about other women feeling the same and just getting on with it!
