What’s Bugging You? -He Said Edition-

Everyone knows we are all about equal opportunity here at The Sisterwives. On Tuesday we gave the floor to the ladies and let ’em loose with what was bugging them. It would be a shame if you missed it.  Now it’s Thursday and, as promised, the guys were perfect gentlemen and waited patiently for their their turn. […]

What’s Bugging You -She Said Edition-

Here on The Sisterwives we cover some pretty heavy stuff. We appreciate all of our readers and are so very grateful to the brave and beautiful writers that submit pieces that they pull from the deepest, and sometimes darkest, parts of their souls.

The Special Orange Juice

I only recently discovered Jamie through her submission to The Sisterwives. What I found was a lovely, funny, twenty-something writer who writes both wit and depth with ease. As someone who grew up in an interesting household (not alcoholic, but strange nonetheless), I related with the following story that Jamie sent us.

Six weeks ago, I almost drowned. So why did no one hear me scream?

Hotness Scale Rebel

I specifically remember the first post of Katie’s I read because I was hit with this feeling that can only described as SHAZAAM. How do you not love an adorable, talented writer whose words drip with sarcasm and self-deprecating humor? Of course I informed her that day that we are soul sisters and that I love her and all kinds of […]

Sometimes Babies Don’t Come Home

Introducing to you all, the wonderful Celeste, who (when I suddenly pounced on her and asked if she’d write for Sisterwives) not only doesn’t take offense at you asking her to share some of the most painful moments of her life, and the aftermath it’s left her dealing with, she *jumps* at the chance. Because […]

The Box

Sometimes it’s the case that the people who make you laugh the hardest are the ones who have most to prove. As one who has always tended to take the role of the clown, I know that I try to entertain and engage *most* when I am struggling. And I know that being funny is […]

Can’t Find My Way Home

    “Come down off your throne, and leave your body alone…” ♫ F, G, Gm, D ♫   When we’re born we make a contract with God. Some are written in fine quill pens; some in blunt pencil, others in red handprints on a wall. He was the eldest of 6. The true prodigy; […]
