The economy sucks and there are no jobs out there. At least that pay more than $10.00 an hour. I went from a comfortable lifestyle and what I thought was a secure job to having to start over and to top it off, the jobs out there aren't looking too good. My future isn't looking so good anymore. Will the economy ever improve so people can get back on their feet? I'm beginning to wonder, if this is what the future holds for the United States. It seems like you work so hard your whole life to be successful and everything just seems to spin out of control and there is nothing you can do about it. You educate yourself and then get even more education and it just doesn't seem to matter anymore. Even if your married, it's a very scary situation. First, there's going from two incomes to one income and if that's not hard enough to deal with there is the scary fact that it's not your grandparents 'til death do us part marriage anymore. You can't be naïve and think there isn't the posibility of divorce in your future. You can love and respect someone all you want but, they have to give it back for it to work. Too many people don't respect the sanctity of marriage anymore. You always have that worry in the back of your mind, what is going to happen to me and my children? Can I depend on them to not let me fall? It's a very scary reality. The homeless population is always rising, especially now. People who had good jobs and nice homes are now living out of their cars. If you don't find a job and your unemployment runs out, and you lose your home then where are you and your children going to go? Someone should strip George Bush of all his fine luxuries and money, put him in an apartment on the lower east side of town and tell him to go find a job.

Taste: Champagne, chocolates, edible body paints & oils, sensual fruits that will be fun feeding each other, whip cream and the list goes on. Be creative!
Touch: When touching each other remember soft feather touches. The sensation of feeling isn’t just about touching one another. The sensation of touch is also the surfaces, such as sheets, negligees’, fuzzy rugs, soft surfaces, feathers, etc. One thing to keep in mind is; how does it feel when you touch it?
Sight: Visual stimulation is very important. Most men are visually stimulated when it comes to love making. Light some candles to provide a little soft lighting and give the room a sensual ambiance, negligees’ and a pair of stilettos, and spread some sensual toys on the bed. Have fun!!!
Smell: Scented candles or incense, where perfume, a freshly showered body is also very sensual. Scented massage oils are also very helpful in stirring up more than one of the bodies senses.
Hearing: Talk sexy to your partner. Tell them how their touch makes you feel or what you would like them to do. Being intimate is very personal. So, let’s get personal. Don’t be shy.
And don’t forget….
The Mind: The mind can be a wonderful sensual tool and is where it all begins. Send them some sexy pics inviting them to play, leave a note somewhere telling them where to meet you, or some hot text messages to get the imagination going.
Just remember to enjoy the time you spend with your partner and being creative will keep their interest and their love going for years to come.

Driving on my way home from shopping for my son's birthday at Target today, there was a young woman probably in her early 20's sitting on the ground just as you come into the plaza holding a sign saying "Need help with rent." The poor girl looked like she was freezing. It was so sad, I had to fight back the tears. I really wish I could have given her something, but I had no cash on me. I know the economy has gotten bad and the homeless or people facing hardship has been around for years. I think we live in our little suburb's blocking out the hardship of the world. There are so many of us who may be having a hard time. I really sympathize with this girl. I lost my job about a year ago right before Christmas and still haven't found work. The economy has really made a lot peoples lives very difficult. It is even getting hard for the young people to find minimum wage jobs to try and support themselves until they make their way in life. After seeing that girl, I thought "Wow, there is so much in life that we take for granted." Such as, having a roof over our head, food on the table and cloths to wear. I just want people to look around them and appreciate the things they do have. Thank God you have a hot meal every day and someone to share it with. Even if what you have may not be a lot, but at least you have it and truly appreciate the people you have in your life who love you and are there to catch you when you fall. Not everyone is blessed with those things. Obviously, this poor girl doesn't have anyone to help her when she is down. Hold on the ones you love near and dear to your heart and never let go.

Many people in their daily grind forget to flatter your partner. Be sure to compliment your partner as often as possible. After years of being in a relationship we forget to compliment our partner. Don't leave your partner feeling like they are no longer attractive to you.
Show your spouse your truly genuinely care about them.
Pay attention to them when they are speaking to you.
Keep the lines of communication open- always let your spouse know how you are feeling. Constructively communicate without lashing out is the key.
Leave each other little notes somewhere, just simply saying "I love you."
Have fun with texting one another. Once your the little buzz in the pocket, you may be the little buzz somewhere else.
Never let your spouse feel as though they need to turn to someone else for emotional support.
Always have fun together. Goof around and laugh a little. You will enjoy the time you spend together a lot more.
See you tomorrow....

With the busy holiday season coming around the corner, many couples don't make enough time for themselves putting stress on their relationship. I'm making the month of November "Bringing the love back." For the month of November I will post various tips and tricks you and your partner can use to help bring the love back in your relationship and show your appreciation for one another. Check back to see the fun and exciting ways to spruce up your relationship. Please feel free to leave comments or any ideas you may have on how to bring the love back in your relationship. So, lets begin.....
You can be intimate any day of the week or any time of the day, be spontaneous.
A recipe for some "Sweet Bubbly Fun"
Illuminate the room with red and white candles. Red and white candles give you a feeling of love.
Some of your favorite chocolates. For example, maybe some chocolate covered strawberries. Chocolate has sensual properties that increase the brain activity from the caffeine and an increase in serotonin which lowers stress.
A bottle of champagne. The bubbles in the champagne will arouse you and your partner.
Enjoy.... you can thank me later. Don't forget to check back for more tips and tricks.

Some of the most common complaints in a relationship is their sex life has faded, it's become boring or the spark just isn't there anymore. People get settled and comfortable in a relationship and no longer work at trying to impress their partner. Intimacy has an important part of the relationship to keep the love alive and burning. Appreciate the needs of your partner. Instead of complaining about it, take some action. Put down the remote and sneak into your bedroom once the kids are tucked away in their beds. You don't need to go anywhere to have some fun, you can have fun in your own room. Go to your local pharmacy and get some massage oil, light some candles and do sensual massages on each other, buy a new negligee or go online and see what you can find interesting to add a little spice to your relationship. Do anything, but nothing. Another option is, if you do have children and you need to get away, get a babysitter, pick up some take out and rent a room somewhere for the night. You don't even have to leave town. You can rent a room a mile from where you live. Who says you have to go out of town to rent a room or that it needs to be a special occasion to appreciate your loved one. Experiment a little and have some fun. You actively pursued your partner in the beginning...why stop now?
