Marriage and Mania

Another blog. Another reason for both you and I to procrastinate.

For those of you who enjoy NajMania... I think you'll enjoy Backside as well - because let's face it, there is a marriage behind all the antics of our children. Some of the stories will be funny, some sweet, some might be serious ...  I mostly hope you'll find all of them comforting and helpful.

Because marriage, commitment, partnerships  - even friendships for that matter - are hard. Damn hard. And the media does us no good by romanticizing it all.

I have always found it soothing to hear other people's stories about their committed relationships. The blemishes included. It helps me to remember that its a rough road, but it is worth it. We are not alone in this. Thank God.

So - on the Backside you'll find stories about two middle-aged people trying to raise four well-adjusted boys, while not losing their connection to each other.

Please comment often! I want to hear from you! And please share this with others who you think will enjoy this.

Thanks for checking in!

  3. Thank you both so much! It means so much to me that you enjoy the blogs! I really have fun writing them. :)
