    Always

    I believe I'm not the only one. Whenever I use "always" then it will become "not alway" immediately after I have said it. So I learned to avoid saying it too often in my statement despite the fact that I know in mind I always do something. However, things are indeed always...

    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...

    I'm working the p/t job today

    for a co-worker. I also have my daughter this weekend. Told her that I was going to leave $20 for Dominoes in case I wasn't home at 4pm. She was like, "Why wouldn't you be home by 4?" "Oh, you know, Murphy's Law." She said, "What law is that?" "Anything can go wrong." Then I...
