Making the Most of Communication

You want to hear about my Monday yesterday?

I introduced Magnetic Poetry at the office where I work.

I bought a magnetic white board and got the OK to hang it in our break room.
Then I bought magnetic poetry kits and put the words up...

My co-workers can now express themselves...

In so many hilarious ways.

It's seriously addictive.
And a lot of fun.

I bought a kit for the kids too.
And the hilariousness has ensued.

I'm thinking about buying the "healing words" kit to put on the refrigerator,
so that my husband and I can communicate better...

We started marriage counseling yesterday.
It was raw.
It was hard.
It was sad & frustrating.

It was a step in solving our problems.

And, then, in classic Rhea Klutziness, at the end of the day,

I managed to fall out of my own car.

You will have to take pictures of your co-workers' poetic inspirations :-)

I am glad to hear about the counseling. I hope that it leads to the resolution that you want and need.

And, how may I ask, does one fall out of a car? That takes some mad skills I am sure!

You fell out of a car?

And I think Kat has a great idea...take photos of your coworkers inspirations. That would be interesting.

Just Jules said...

I would love pics too - of the word creations!

Hubby and I used to use these pre-kids. Then when we had one baby we used the foam letters in the shower to leave each other messages.... sigh remember when

Susie said...

I love those poetry things!!

Good luck with therapy. It is hard work but it is so worth it:-)

Indy said...

I used to use these at my job when i worked. It was always a lot of fun.

Good to hear that you are going to counseling. Hope it all goes well!

Glad to hear you two are working on things. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I have played around with the original, but have not seen the other Mag Poetry sets. So hilarious. So is you falling out of your car!

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

What an awesome idea.

I hope the therapy helps.

And, I fell out of a bus once...and those have stairs!

Cristin said...

I've played with these before... wicked fun...I'm wondering if they make an x rated version... I would enjoy that.

First of all, you crack me up. I think it's great you are going to counseling-so many couples just throw it away without any effort. Good for you. (I hope that sounds supportive and not condescending. It's supposed to sound really nice!) And the magnetic poetry? I LOVE it! Here's a website to try for online play: http://www.magpo.com/kidspoetry/playonline.cfm

I thought about getting them for my classroom....the chalkboard is magnetic, but I would be afraid of what I might read.

My husband and I are going to counseling too. It is not fun, but we have to at least try....good luck!!

Good luck with the counseling. I hope it all works out for the best. I hope you're ok from the fall too! Any boo-boos?

Justine said...

Ooh, bring your camera to work. I wanna see what your coworkers come up with!

Good for you on the counseling thing. Maybe it will help? I sure hope so.

Dang, another time I wish I could be a fly, this time on the roof of your car.

Justine :o )

Wishing you the best results with therapy.

I think those word games will be hysterical! Have fun.

CrystalChick said...

Or rather I should have said 'counseling' as the therapy is what you'll need if things get too crazy. LOL

Mama Dawg said...

Glad to hear about the therapy. Fingers crossed.

Jen said...

I can't believe that I am going to admit this but I have fallen out of my car. It takes real talent.

I wish you all the best in your counseling.
