    My husband is such a liar.

    I can't stand being married. He is selfish and inconsiderate. If it wasn't for the kids, I would be driving to the divorce attorney's office today. Ugh! To bad I must wait for my youngest to graduate from high school. Thank God he graduates at 17. 5 more years to go.
