We’ve got some mad-exciting new stuff coming up: More celebrity podcast interviews, a live on-the-road version of Ready, Set…Wife!, and hot, relevant topics that these two ol’ married gals want to investigate.

If everyone woman stopped micromanaging her relationship…

…imagine how much time we’d have leftover! We could take over the world….OR…we could actually find time to relax and take care of ourselves. I’ve been getting better and better at letting go and trusting Jim can take care of himself. I have miles to go, but it’s a process and I’m on the road to recovery. How about you?

Consider this your holiday card…

And so concludes another year sans Holiday greetings from Cathleen and Peter.  The first and last time we managed to get out seasonal well wishes was the Christmas after our wedding.  It happened for two reasons: 1.  We still had a fresh address list from our wedding extravaganza 2.  I was trying to impress Peter’s family I married into an aggressive card writing family. ...

Maybe we shouldn’t do that again

Jim and I just worked out in the same room at home together. I corrected his form a few times. (Hey, I’m a yoga teacher, people! I’m all about good alignment to avoid injury.) He got a bit annoyed. I felt as if I was helping him. He appeared NOT to feel the same. So what do I do? Mind my own business and let him pull/strain/tear his body up? Or do I just give him a few...

Ho Ho Hum. How do you negotiate the holidays?

I spent 45-minutes commuting on a bus today behind a woman on a cell phone haggling with her husband over their travel plans for the holidays. It was intense, people! First off, to her credit, she had two incredibly complicated family trees to climb. I was really rooting for her — she wanted to make sure everyone felt they had been given an equal amount of holiday cheer and time...
