    All I Could Do Was Laugh.

    It started off with the kids fighting. I have three kids (13,8 and 5). The two younger ones have been fighting off and on all morning, the oldest thinks it's Saturday before her birthday that she is having a party without asking me if she could. She texts all her friends to come...

    I’ve Also Met His Reincarnation

    Aren’t I lucky? =P He loves to jinx me at every chance he gets. I wonder when he’ll retire from me and move on to someone else who he can terrorise?

    Also, The Law Of Unintended Consequences

    I just recently realized that I had devoted my life to my family; I took the family business, paid the house and bills, and took care of what the family owned. The realization came when I was in a difficult spot. All I really needed was friends and family, I wasn't begging for...
