    Deal with It...

    Have you ever noticed that people who blantantly disregard boundaries and disrespect you never seem to acknowledge their role and/or behavior?  It is almost like a person never knows they stink or have bad breath, one of nature's jokes I suppose.  The same holds true...

    My husband and I went on holiday

    for two weeks. It was lovely, and we both had a really good time. However, the second we landed on home ground, his mother starts calling my husband from the airport; she was begging him to visit her ASAP. We were both feeling jet lagged, and needed a day to regroup. She kept...
