Hanging around the house going batty

Our friend has disappeared. He didn't stay long, much to the relief of Hubby. I didn't think he was much of a threat, but Hubby was worried he might be carrying rabies or some other horrible disease. Considering I wasn't going to get close enough for him to bite, I wasn't worried about our guest's health record.

Dishware resentment important to happy marriage

Dishware selection occurs only a couple of times during the marital journey. The first happens when the couple becomes engaged. Prior to actually walking down the aisle, a couple is required by ancient law to select a pattern for their dishes as well as register for other necessary household items. The advent of department stores in the last century or so significantly lowered the difficulty of this pre-marital task.

As he tells the story of self-respect, fears faced and conquered, boundaries claimed and defended, I notice he seems taller. The timbre of his voice coming deeper. He is absent the anxious energy with which he first walked into my office, months ago.

You are in big trouble, Espn Turbo Smith

It took me days to name my children. People would harass me in the hospital, noting I would not be allowed to leave until the Social Security forms were completed with the baby's full name entered in the appropriate spaces. However, I took the naming part of my job as a new parent very seriously. I refused to be bullied into making the wrong decision.
