I love a clean house and wish these people I live with would clean up after themselves all the time (not just when I
No matter how soft I speak, if I am saying something my kids don’t want to hear they tell me I am “yelling” at them. Sometimes I just have to show them the difference.
I love John with all my heart. In my opinion he is a Saint… a very SLOW moving Saint, but a Saint none-the-less. (I mean, he puts up with me doesn’t he?).
Yes, I know that I can be am very bossy and controlling. I prove this frequently by making To-Do Lists for my family. My daughters say that when I am on my death bed I will say, “Hold on just a second, I gotta leave my family a list first.” They are
