Long time, No Post

Yes, I know I haven’t been around in a while. I haven’t even been lurking. Just started going back on looking at Leah’s blog. Real job has been keeping me busy with a vengeance.

Not much new in the writing front. Working on my third read through for the author I mentioned before. I haven’t asked her permission to mention her name yet, so I’ll refrain until I ask. I hope that I’m giving her good feedback on her work. I’ve really enjoyed this and her stories are great. I’m amazed at how quickly she is able to produce such varied works.

I was checking my emails this morning and came across an interesting article on man vs. woman language. Here’s the link. Interesting perspective on what men say and what it really means. Working with mostly men, I can say the article is pretty accurate. My only complaint is that my husband NEVER cleaned during the early part of our relationship. He does now, but that’s after years of being together. And as he tells it, he’s finally out of the mid life crisis that started when he was 16. At least that’s what he tells the guys.

What is the biggest difference in what a man says and what he really means?

LOL. My husband will clean and wash dishes and does his own laundry - work clothes. But you don't want to go away for six months like I did and come back to his recent 'cleaning'. You've seen those bathrooms in men's work areas? Yeah, let's just say his idea of cleaning and mine differ.

I think the biggest thing is our understanding of what they are saying. I'm STILL learning to tell CFMan exactly what I want on his terms.

Ug, I know! The men's restroom is right NEXT to my office. I wouldn't go in there if you paid me!

Learning to translate of you want and making him understand in his language is the biggest barrier in relationships, I think. It really is an art form.
