Lazy??
Who worked at least 30 hours a week and went to high school...I did.
Who worked 40 hours a week and got both a Bachelors and Masters degree...I did.

While working and studying who also raised two children, housework, dealt with husband out of town, and got a second job...I did.

Who volunteers to help when ever asked...I do.

Who goes to all of my kids and step kids school functions (ALL OF THEM)...I do.

Who bakes every holiday and gives you food so you don't have to bake...I do.

Who runs the kids all over town for various functions and events...I do.

If that's lazy, then I'm guilty.


Since I can't ask you these questions without you causing a scene, I guess I'm stuck venting here.
I apologize to the rest of you who had to read through this rant.

    Thanks Matt...working a minimum wage job in high school for anything over 10 hours a week made you virtual millionaire among friends. Though I think I still owe Orange money for gas from 1985 through 87.

    I'd say something, but I'm too lazy right now. Damn my eyes! (too late!)

    First, I'm a single mom and I don't work outside the home... so you are my hero in a HUGE way.

    Second, being married and a single mom (I get it, the travel) is even more admirable. I say that because you still have someone else involved in running the show. That's tough, no matter how wonderful he is.

    From one lazy person to another, cheers!

    Anon - Hubby isn't the problem...well he does cause problems but not huge one's. And he doesn't call me lazy (he called me a soccer mom though and that caused me to go out and get my hair dyed punk red!) It's my mom who called me lazy...and not to my face but to one of my kids. That's what caused the rant.
    Thanks for the comment...stop by anytime!
