Writer's Workshop: Arguing

Mama’s Losin’ It

Please be sure to click the button above to join in the Writer's Workshop fun!

My response this week involves two of the prompts from this week's Writer's Workshop, as follows:

1.) Share a disagreement you’re having with someone and let your readers be the judge!
2.) Tell us about your song.

The disagreement, and sometimes flat-out yell-fest, around here these days is women that are constantly putting their "stuff" in my husband's face. He says they're nothing, not a threat, that he doesn't even notice, and that I shouldn't worry about them, that I should just ignore them and not let it upset me.

I say they should keep their parts to themselves and not be advertising the "goods" like they are two-bit hookers or something, and he shouldn't be looking (he says he isn't). It makes me blinkin' mad to have them shoving their stuff at him everywhere we go. I feel like he shouldn't get mad at me for being upset with them...That makes me feel like he wants to look at them and perhaps prefers them over me.

There is more to this, but I won't get into that here. My security overall is in the toilet. I realize that some of my issues stem from aging (I'm 46), menopause, and having some pretty major parts removed along with tumors last October. I feel vulnerable and less of a woman and that has me in hyper-sensitive mode regarding things that maybe otherwise I wouldn't pay attention to.

It all boils down to one angry, scared Suz that doesn't know how to work it out and be honest at the same time.

Anyway, the second prompt regards my song. This song says exactly how I feel regarding the whole blasted mess.


  1. Oh my! That is a tough one because if he is looking, well, that is human nature. Marriage has not stopped me from looking at great looking guys or even flirting for that matter and I know the Husband and well... we'll leave it at that. The thing is I am fairly confident knowing he is not going any where but we have had our bumps.

    Not knowing you very well I can only imagine that you are a strong and vibrant woman and is only as sexy as you feel. Work with what you got and get you some knickers that make you feel sexy. Your confidence will come back.

    Good luck!

    Hey there! Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. I apologize for taking so long to respond to you. I appreciate your thoughts on this. Self-confidence has always been an issue for me.

    I guess I view these things differently than a lot of folks, and even than how I felt as a young woman. Kind of like I feel about regular shopping...it just doesn't make sense for me to go shopping for something that I already have.

    Now, for your suggestion about the knickers...I'll have to work on that one. Like the song says "I'm looking for something in red." haha Thanks so much for your note!
