Same Problem The Second Time Around

I did a teenagers hair yesterday and I asked her how she was getting along with her step-dad.

She bristled at my question and said, "He is an A-- H---. He sits around all day while my mom does everything."

I said, "wasn't that her biggest complaint against your dad?"

"Yes it was," she answered, "but at least my dad was at work when she mowed the lawn." She added, "This guy does absolutely nothing around the house, and they both work."

It can't be fixed the second time if we didn't know how to fix it the first time around.

From Chauvinist to Doing Everything

I can hardly believe how my home life has changed.

I used to go to work and come home to a messy house, clean it, do laundry and everything that goes with it.

Yesterday my husband said how sorry he was that I worked all day and he didn't.

My answer was, " I have always wished I could go to work and come home to a clean house every day, of course never thinking there would be the slightest chance that it could really happen." I hugged him and said, "You have made my dream come true."

He does everything, cleans house, beds, vacuum's does laundry and irons, washes windows, everything.

It makes me wonder if this would have happened had I not taken a stand years ago. I think not.

What a blessing, I could work and write til I'm ninety.

Wedding's vs Anniversaries

Tying the knot means almost nothing compared to making it work for decades.

Celebrate anniversary after anniversary, especially when children are added to the mix.

Busy Month

May was an unusually busy month. First we went on vacation. The next weekend my daughter Nicole got married. When I got back to my computer, it had crashed.

We had the computer in the hospital for longer than we expected, but I am now back to business as usual.
