The “Bad Husband” Chronicles

Just another day for you and me in Paradise

Rewind to how it all began

(September 2008)

Hidey hoe, friends!

Welcome to The Bad Husband Chronicles, your daily pit stop in comic relief! I launched this blog in September ’08 and it has exploded by leaps and bounds, much to my own surprise.  Being a writer, I’ve always felt I had much to say, but I’ve spent most of my life keeping those thoughts and feelings to myself.  At 35, I figured what the hell, and decided to share myself with the world.  If you are a new visitor, please click on “Archives” so you can start from the beginning (September ’08).  That helps provide some background and hopefully, some insight as well. 

I hope you will come and visit again, as I will be adding new chronicles daily. Keep your seat belt fastened and chin up and as Lane Myer says in the classic movie, Better Off Dead, “This is as bad as it will ever get.” Please pass this blog around to anyone and everyone, as we can all benefit from knowing that we aren’t the only ones that have ever been in the pit of the abyss before!  As an aside, please share your comments on the blog.  Your email address is not made public and I am the only one who can view it as the administrator of the site.  I receive so many comments from many of you through email and encourage you to post them on the blog directly.  Not to mention, my poor little Gmail account is like the little engine that could!  To avoid unsolicited spam in your inbox, do not provide your email address when you leave comments.  If you wish to contact me directly, please feel free to do so at my email address below.

As far as I am concerned, rest easy, my friends. Before you prepare to throw me under the bus, I must tell you that my adventure in marriage hysteria is nearing its end for the second time in my life. So, you may be asking yourself: “How can such a clever gal make such stupid choices?” The only honest answer to that is that I’m as human as the next person and just as fallible. Thankfully, I am blessed with an incredible family and a scintillating wit that keeps me and those around me on their toes. I am not looking for an upgrade or a replacement model man, just the opportunity to share my story with others.

As Morrissey says, “There is a light that never goes out.” Door #1: Get busy living; Door #2: Get busy dying. I choose Door #1.

My favorite quote from the movie “Never been kissed…”

Josie Geller: “That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and this person and you realize that that person is the only person that you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment you get this amazing gift and you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that that it will go away all at the same time.”

Cynthia: “Damn girl… you are a writer.”

    You surely do have an amazing family that wishes you nothing but the very best. Go for it!

    Im here reading and wondering how can someone go through something like that but as you said, we’re all humans. I hope you do get out of it soon because that’s not healthy for you. Just know that we your wordpress family is here for you too if you do someone to talk to. ok

    I just found your blog via….well, I won’t say. Got to protect the innocent you know. Anyway, I relate. This chick is several months into a ‘marital separation’ which is required in this state before you can actually kick a bad husband to the curb. What a great legal system we have! Also in a new job, which rivals ‘Office Space’ in stereotypical employees. For real. I hope that laughing ‘with’ you is OK…if you need any input into the process or the ‘system’ as it relates to marital sepatation/divorce, just let me know. Stay cool, keep your sense of humor.

    I came across your blog accidentally, actually. I read it every day and anticipate each new post. I know you have a fantastic sense of humour, but how is it possible that your husband does not see what a treasure he has in you? Jackass is too frugal a word to use to describe him. If you were mine, I’d love you to the depth of my soul and give everything I am to you. You deserve that more than anyone I know. I hope and pray to the Gods that they bless you with it.

    P.S. Will you marry me? J/K (I think.)

    Sorry Taylor. You will have to stand behind me in the line.

    You were a boy, before you became a man. I don’t see the joy…

    Hi Graham,

    The joy is found through taking pleasure in the details. The unconditional love of children, the kindness of strangers, the ability to do something kind for someone else while expecting nothing in return, and in the moment when your laughter becomes a cackle.

    Life is not an all-inclusive package at times, so it’s vital to find joy when and where it presents itself. This is how I face each day and how I measure ‘happiness’ in my own life.

    Thank you for reading and for being brave enough to comment. I am very appreciative of both.

    Keep shining,

    Dear Mozziestar

    I went through your blog and I must say it very much interest me. I too love the quote by Josie Geller in “Never been kissed” 🙂 Even more than that, I love the short story that you wrote during your college days.
