Baby on the Way; Extra Order of Cries with That…

A new baby was on the way. That meant less time with Mom and Dad, more chores around the house, less noise coming from me, and more coming from a tiny, loud-mouthed infant. That was all fine by me, though. At six years old, I was excited for a brand-new adorable little sister. Then I’d have an... Sign in to see full entry.

Grandma--All the Comforts of Mom, with MORE FREEDOM!

My fondest, earliest memories are of walks in the city, gingerbread man-shaped sandwich cookies, and of her. My grandmother and I grew especially close beginning when I was a little girl whose mother was forced to work full time by an untimely divorce. The many daytime hours we spent together reside...

Break the Ties that Bind... Let's Just Have Free Trade for Everyone!

Financial strain is the name of the game, and my family wants OUT. I would really like to contribute financially, now that my dad--with his two broken wrists--is only getting 100.00 per week for 6 people, and the monthly insurance cost is $400.00. So bye bye money. He basically is getting nothing.... Sign in to see full entry.

When Is the RIGHT TIME.....?

Ahhh... What now... So I think I'm ready to spread my wings and soar to new opportunities, but a few things are preventing that. Finances for one... making peanuts for long hours at work is not conducive to building a future for myself... Family Troubles... my mom would be really sad if I left, and...

Whose Problem Is It, Anyway?

Calling all Mommies... Or Daddy-Os.... I am pondering the question of responsibility... If my mom told me to "make sure" my little brother did the dishes... and I told him to do them, but had other things to do for the night than sit around and wait and wait to see if he did them, does that give her...

PLEASE HELP!! Name a few things...

Please bloggers, if I've ever asked for help, I actually mean it this time.... Can you please thing of a few things my dad can do while he is at home to keep from being bored? For 8 weeks he will be casted... Besides watching TV, movies, and sleeping, what is there!? He broke BOTH wrists. Sign in to see full entry.

My Dad Has Two Broken Wrists (Read: Painful Humor)

And he is making my mom CrAzY... He's casted on both right now and supposedly won't be un-casted for 8 weeks! In fact, he's getting surgery tomorrow on the right wrist. (OOPS-almost wrote write rist... say that five times fast!) I am so glad my boy is such a good sport... apparently my dad was... Sign in to see full entry.

The Power of a Little Brother...

Since when did 13-year-olds learn the power of guilt...? I guess it is something we all know ever since we are young, but it kinda stinks when it gets turned around on you... With my current situation, I am continually going to see my honey on the weekends because he cannot come here with so many... Sign in to see full entry.

My Poor Mom...

Wow so sometimes I am a real bitch and I don't even realize it. It isn't like I try to be--I guess I don't try NOT TO BE, either, but Sometimes I am a real bitch to my poor mom. I guess I just get so consumed with my own frustrations and disappointments that I don't recognize how my behavior throws... Sign in to see full entry.

OK, OK I Won't Complain!

I wish to extend my apologies to those of you who have found my family posts annoying or irksome... I will do my best not to ramble on about the unfairness of living at home and working full time. I guess most people deal with this on a daily basis. I just want to grow up, that's all. Simple and yet... Sign in to see full entry.
