    My Husband

    My husband takes me for granted. I pay all the bills. I buy everything for the house. I pay for his phone. He gets everything he asks for. Even though I go lacking for clothes and the things I need because i can't afford to do anything after the bills. He always talks about how...

    Very Much So.....

    Makes Me Mad!

    I think it's horrible how some people take you for granted, you won't always be here!! Grrr....they make me furious when they think they can take me for granted. I then have to show them that they shouldn't. No threats involved of course :)

    I Am So Glad to Find You Because Lately I Am Feeling Very Taken For Granted Too.

    Maybe I have been too kind and accommodating- I think some of that is about to stop TODAY because it is simply not working for me.  After trading tickets from matinee to evening to suit my friend's split-second schedule, she said she couldn't make it to meet me at the...

    Grad School

    I finished my Master's degree with a 3.9 GPA yesterday and strangers were more excited than my own family. If it were my brother finishing his law degree my parents would be ecstatic...but who cares about a little 'ole Masters?
