Just Yaking


Parents of teenagers -  Pay a current market wage.  Do not pay $20.00 for an hours' worth of kitchen duty just because they need $20.00 and you think they should have to earn it.  An hour of washing dishes pays $7.25 period.

I ran into an old acquaintance last night who had lost 52lbs.  She said a woman came to her door 9 months ago and said "you need to know that I am your husbands other wife."  Oh hell yes she did!  It seems his job that kept him away from home 3 nights a week was the same job that kept him away from the other woman's home 4 nights a week.  Just another diet plan to add to my list.

I believe I'm ready to start the new week.  I know from experience that if I do "this day" to the best of my ability that tomorrow can be awesome.  Unlike my using days when I thought "tomorrow" may or may not actually come.  Let's all grab a broom and keep our front porch clean, sweeping it off through the day of any resentments or ill will. Tonight we can take the water hose and give it a good rinsing off with the 10th step and it will be shiny tomorrow when we pick up our brooms again.  note: men, you can use a shop broom if that feels more comfortable..... ;-)

Whew, not a diet that seems very healthy and probably loaded with the weight of enormous resentment. You don't need that one.

I was all excited about the diet, for a minute. Hmm, wonder if I would be the three day wife or the four day wife! LOL! Getting out my broom! Love you Pammie!

I'm liking that hourly wage thing. I tend to be a bit generous. I may need to heed your advice.

And I had to read that bit about the two wives/diet thing a couple of times. That's horrifying.
