And still more

I’ve been having issues this week – I got a new countertop which involved having a plumber take the old sink and faucet out one day and return later to put it back in. (With an interlude when DH turned the dishwasher on with the sink and piping [more]

Re: The Wild August...

DD2 is a CNA -- she worked in a nursing home during her senior year in high school and during her first college break summer. She is a nurturing soul and wants to go to med school. I figured we'd find out if she had what it took, and sent her to CNA [more]

Cranky

I just need to vent.

Sink removed yesterday for countertop installation today.

To my DH: Why in the hell would you turn on the dishwasher when the sink has been removed and plumbing have been disconnected for countertop [more]

Re: the difference between here & FB

My Mom has often offered to stay at the home of a friend when there is a funeral for a spouse. That's something you really can do to help a friend at those times when we're all saying, "Is there anything I can do. . ."

Re: Countertop / No Countertop

I don't think I will ever deal with them again on such a large project. I will just hire and independent contractor directly so I can hold them accountable without listening to them blaming the other guy that isn't in the room.

I need [more]

Countertop / No Countertop

This is therapy -- feel free to ignore.

For years I've fantasized about getting a new countertop. . .when the kids are all out of the house. They did all their school projects at the kitchen counter, did (or failed to do) a ton of homework, [more]

Re: Things I am currently struggling with

I'm thinking you don't really need advice -- you know all the obvious answers. But, it helps to put a name on the things that are nagging at you.

I'm unhappy about my weight and my lack of ability to drag my tired carcass out of bed at 5 [more]

An Open Letter

I'm kind of geeky about Supreme Court language. This brought tears to my eyes. Really.

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I remember many years ago when our kids were toddlers, and I had an evening commitment. One of the kids said, "Does that mean that Dad has to take care of us?" DH responded immediately, "No, that means that Dad GETS to take care of [more]

Re: This Just In

I hear what you say about husbands and sickness. I concluded a long time ago that DH got attention from his parents 1.) for being the smart kid, and 2.) when he was sick or injured. Therefore, he still needs to be the smart kid at all times (even [more]

I'm glad you're dealing with this, but I'm really sorry that you and your DH have to deal with ONE MORE THING.

Confession

I'm a real jerk sometimes. I was feeling sorry for myself after Mother's Day. Two kids called, one bought me a McDonald's coffee. DH didn't acknowledge day. I was driving DD home from Waco, and probably a bit cranky. But really. I make an effort for [more]
