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..... ;-)
