But I went on strike instead.

Wonderful Husband

I got dressed for work this morning and couldn't find a clean uniform.

I asked Gerald if he had seen the one that had just been washed. He knew right where it was.

I said, "I can't wear that one, it's all wrinkled."

Gerald took it and said, "Here, let me go iron it for you."

So matter of fact.

Love that man!!!!!!

Book Signing

We are having a multiple author book signing at the South Town Expo on Saturday January 7th. We are having a drawing for an Amazon gift card and lots of goodies.


I got a wonderful thank you card yesterday. It was from a lady who came to Thanksgiving.
I had 33 people for a sit down dinner at my little house. She was shocked at how I had pulled it off.

In the first place, Gerald did most of the work. We had My daughters new in-laws from Salt Lake. My sons in-laws from price, and my sons friend from Pittsburg.

A couple of other ladies came and I think the reason it went off so well was because of all the people that were there and the spirit they brought.

It was so wonderful, we did it again for Christmas. Happy New Year everyone.

I got a very touching email from a lady who bought my book. She is determined to change the dinamics in her house. She said she got the book just in time.

I was so touched by her email. She said she was going to study my book before she starts to approach her husband and kids. She said she can't take a chance on her plan failing because it will be her last chance.

My prayers are with her.

Another call

I got a call from a friend who had bought my book for his sister. He informed me that she went out and got 4 more. One for each one of her kids.

My cleaning lady at the Beauty Salon is going to give one to each kid for christmas.

I Love hearing things like this.


I read a real sad post on 'Good Reads'. A lady gave me a real bad review.
She was divorced. She said that some marriages are better the second time around. She was extremely upset that I stressed that children could be ruined for life by divorce.

I agree with her, surprisingly. There are marriages where the only solution is to get out. I had two of them in my own family. In that case, obviously the children will also be better off. I am not saying the children won't suffer. They will suffer and try not to take sides in any event. A lot of the children who initially suffer emmensely in the beginning can be very well adjusted and successful adults.

The only marriages I am so into saving are those couples who have small children and absolutely no abuse in the family. I also stress that if a spouse measures a lot more bad than good on the marriage ruler, getting out may be the best bet. However, this doesen't happen very often. Most dicorces come about because the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence.

I Almost Divorced My Husband But I Went On Strike Instead.....

To show what a good wife she was, Sherri Mills eagerly took over all household and child rearing duties at the beginning of her marriage. Years later, exhausted and angry from doing every chore in an increasingly complex family life, she'd had enough.

However, after styling hair in her salon for nearly 20 years and conducting more impromptu therapy sessions than most psychologists, Sherri knew divorce was not the solution she was looking for. Fighting to save her marriage, she did the only thing her husband would understand-she went on a domestic strike, complete with a homemade, union-style contract.

And it worked! Now with over 40 years of experience, Sherri is out to share with others what brought back her greatest joy. Inside you'll find stories from women who have gone through it all and tips to rediscover your own loving marriage. Sherri's candid confessions of going from picket fences to picket signs will have you laughing your way to a permanent, equitable division of labor and domestic bliss.
