Have you met a Cancerian woman recently? Are you a little confused as to what she really is – chirpy, somber or distant? She is all of these and still, she is none of these. Even more confused? A Cancerian woman has mood swings every now and then and these are only a few of her mood swings. However, her basic personality traits remain the same. She is very sensitive, emotional, kind and caring. Now’s the catch! Most of her traits will be hidden behind a shell of indifference and aloofness, breaking which will require quite a lot of effort.

You will have to gently coerce a Cancerian girl to get out of her shell and come into the big bad world without it. The best time to do this is in the moonlight, when there are maximum changes of catching her in her true emotions. When in love, she will be tender, womanly, timid and modest. She dislikes criticisms, can’t stand rejection and gets deeply hurt by harsh words. Too much aggressiveness on your part may make her a little hesitant. She loves her mother, so you better learn to love as well as respect her too.

A Cancer woman will never make the first moves in a relationship; she only knows how to move backwards or sideways. This is because of two reasons, her shyness and her fear of being rejected. This female has some secrets and she won’t like you prying around her personal diary. She is very insecure and will need your constant reassurance. It doesn’t matter if she is the current ‘Miss Universe’ or has men drooling over her all the time, it is your attention and appreciation she would be the most concerned about.

You will have to learn to live with a Cancerian woman’s mood swings, which is not so difficult since she is so good in every other way. She is extremely loyal and will keep you happy with her warm and rich humor. Once she is committed to you, she will remain yours forever and ever. Adultery is not one of her traits. With a Cancerian woman, you will always have to be careful with words. She is very sentimental and can get hurt very easily. Then, she can cry like a 2-year old baby and you will be expected to console her and wipe her tears.

A Cancer female is a great cook and makes better food than a 5-star hotel chef. She is quite careful with money as well. Neither will she be stingy, nor totally extravagant. She has a habit of saving everything that is usable, be it money, old buttons or empty jars. She also saves things that have a sentimental value attached to them, like the sweater grandmother knitted on her fifth birthday. A Cancer female fiercely guards what is hers and that includes you too! However, she is not too possessive or jealous. But, she does not like sharing her love too.

She is one of those people who do not crib about bad luck. She will get depressed and may shed a few tears alone, but she will be patient and wait for the time to change again, this time in her favor. Almost all the Cancerians have the desire of being pampered like a child, especially when they feel low. Don’t forget to pay your Cancer girl extra attention when she is depressed, otherwise she may retreat deeper into her shell. And then, it will be very difficult to bring her back to her normal self.

She will want to be told time and again that she is still desirable and you still need her. However, she is not weak and is completely capable of looking after herself. In fact, she is one of those who sacrifice all that they have, for their loved ones. She just needs some spoiling after every few days. A Cancerian woman may be fragile as far as her feelings are concerned, but when you need her, she will be as strong as the ‘Rock of Gibraltar’. She will also be very protective of her children and make them feel completely secure.

Kids will be the center of her universe and she will pamper them with her love, affection and care. The children will also be very close to her and no matter how much far they go from home, they will come back to her and she will know this. A Cancer female always needs you, but she will never get too aggressive. She knows that you may leave for a while, to follow your dreams, but in the end, she is the one you will come back to. Then, you will find her as charming as before, waiting for you with freshly baked bread and hot soup. She will feed you, listen to your worries and make you smile again! Need anything more?

What makes love? A husband who super cleans house while I take girls out of the house is love. A husband who pays for his mother and I to have pedicures for her bday is love. A husband who majorly helps take care baby at his parents house is love. I suppose we are having sex tonight, IF i can get him to bed for it. My wrist super hurts and I drank too much wine tonight. Not in a good way either, no buzz it went straight to “wine hangover” blegh.

All the tomorrows

May 16, 2010

I am hungry again. My cycles are off and I never know when I am gonna start. So that makes me a super unpleasant mommy and all around person. I am usually starving around this time and my carpal tunnel acts up. I wish it would just start so I could be finished with it already!

The boys are spending the night with their dad, my girls are asleep, DH is asleep and I sit here pondering food and a shower. Man my life is super exciting.

How much do you have to try to say you have done all you could. When do you know? Does some random person walk up and say….Hey I’ve been watching your life. I think you can just give up. It will be ok if you do. You can go on with your life and it will not shatter to a gajillion pieces. That you will be ok on all the tomorrows.

I am going to start scheduling sex. I read a blog about it. It makes perfectly good sense. It releases stress, alleviates bad moods, and makes you feel good. the best part of the is HE doesn’t need to know. It’s not like i am going to write it down on the calendar. SEX TONIGHT in sharpie. you know. But I need to get my marriage either back on track or over.

I constantly wonder how my husband can be so self centered. And why do I want to be married to someone who cannot see past himself. I think it is really the thing of not wanting to be alone and the kids. Ok I know he takes care of the bills, what about me? what about the kids, we dont really need to be “taken” care of but I just want some one interested a little bit of my life.
Today DH asked his mother who his half brother is.
IT pisses me off that he cannot get beyond the past and not appreciate what he does have. AND he doesnt consider what his mom might feel for him asking her questions like that? Why could he not ask his father? His father is the one who fucked around on his mom. Not his mother, she is a really good woman and puts up with a lot of bullshit. My husband is an insensitive bastard who only worries about himself. May none of my children EVER act like that. I cannot imagine what makes a person act that way…..

Never ending cycle

May 14, 2010

Do you ever wake up and wonder if today is going to be any better than yesterday? Or not even better but at least different? And not different as in my child did not poop today? Today my different thing was DH helped me wash the outside windows. Then he took me to get milk for the kids. WA-hooo?! maybe? BUT i mean at least we arent fighting. and its really weird not to be fighting. He is really trying and I know I am PMSing. no wins here. What is going to make tomorrow better? Maybe I could sleep in? Doubt it. Maybe take a nap during the day? Oh no, cant do that, someone has to clean. Why am I soooo tired? I cant imagine yoga tires you out that much. The playhhouse is coming along nicely. Our camera is dead so you wont get any new pics of anything for a while. Maybe we can get one on payday? I just want a break. A good quiet, no mommy calling, just to do what i want. Greedy aint I. I guess I’ll just be happy with the naggy husband who has OCD.
