Get the $%# UP and help me with the kids!!!


I contemplated whether to write about this or not.  Then I re-read my first post. This is to help me vent my feelings.  I also re-read the marriage post, and I have to say something otherwise I will grow to resent him (and it’s starting).  So, instead of saying it to The Husband, because really … Continue reading
