Now that I'm off my Soap Box

Well that was a refreshing rant. So anyways I was talking to my wife today about maybe seeing if she would be willing to write some on my Blog. See if she would want to tell her side of the story. I really think that people need to hear both sides of a story to get the whole picture. She seemed turned off by the idea. She knows that I write here and that I look at other peoples Blogs but she don't like the idea. She don't see why I feel the need to look at some one else's entries or even why people would write down there thoughts for the whole world to see. My hope is that maybe if enough people who read my site will like the idea of her telling her side or at least have some questions for her that she could answer that she would at least try. So what do you think? Should I try to get her to write here?

On to other things. In reading M's Blog The Tale of My Discreet Affair I decided to take some of her ideas. She has decided to set goals for her site and I have decided to try for the same thing. I'm not going to set as many goals as she has but I want to get some things accomplished here. So here are some of my goals (more might come later).


  1. Try to get my wife to tell her side of the story or give some opinions. At the very least I'd like he to answer any questions. I know this might not be the best thing for me but it would help paint the whole picture. I have been a total ass in my life and am willing to take responsibility for that now.
  2. I want to try to post some more positive things about our life in general. There are times when we are completely happy. I want to start sharing those times here. It might help me to change my outlook on life in general.
  3. I'd like to get some more comments but that is not a big deal to me. Well maybe wrong wording. I'd like to try and get some more input from the people who stop by and read my ramblings.
  4. This last one is more of a request than a goal. I'd like to see if the readers have any questions for my wife that she might be able (willing) to answer.
  5. I'd like to learn how some of the other people on the Blog sites are doing some of their things. Like I found out how to put links on my site to other sites. But how do some of the sites put asterisk by the blogs that have been recently updated. Or how do you get the link top appear that says other sites that link here. Their are more but can't remember them at the moment.

So those are my goals for now. I have some personal goals but those are personal. The biggest is to STOP the cravings for a dam cigarette. It's been a month now and the cravings won't go away. I've quit before for years at a time but this time the cravings won't stop. They are the worst after I eat a meal.

I talked to my wife yesterday about her being upset at me when I tell her she is beautiful. She says it's because she don't feel that way. But she did say that is ok for me to call her my pretty wife. So at least that is a positive thing. So for now that's all to say. I'm getting tired so good night.

Just wanted to let you know I found your site yesterday and I enjoy reading it. Also wanted to let you know you're not alone when it comes to fighting a nic fit. :)

I'll try and post feedbacks for you if I think I've got something to add. I also want to learn more about blogging. Maybe there are some tutorial sites somewhere? I'll let you know if I find any.

Ah! Glad to "see" you!

I think I'll go ahead and put you in my vacant spot on my blogroll. It looks like you'll fit right in!

Good stuff here. I'll try to chime in more when I don't have a child peeing all over the floor - I thought we had mastered the potty thing already!LOL!

Just came across your site, its actually really interesting. I think it would be great to hear from your wife, some people are skiddish about blogging, in time don't force it.
I will definitely be back!
