We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...
*passive aggressive mom dramatically putting away dishes and denying help*
Mom, are you sure you don’t want any help?
no I don’t need any help I can do it all by myself just like I do everything in this house, by myself…..
Actually my mother
my mother every day
You’re all gonna hate me for this but…
Instead of asking your mother if she needs help, just do it. Instead of watching her put the dishes away, grab a few and help.
It’s not rocket science.
The first dinner I had at home after I moved out, I voluntarily cleared the dirty dishes from the table. You would have thought I gave my mother a million dollars.
The important thing to remember is that it’s not always about you. Sometimes mothers just get overwhelmed. A little help from you doesn’t hurt.
…but what do I know?
Warm Wishes For 2014 #HappyNewYear!
I wanted to write something clever and enlightening for this post. Lines like, “Good Riddance!” and “”Don’t let the ‘Auld’ hit you in the ‘Lang Syne’ on your way out!” came to mind. But every year has it’s highs and lows. The worst part was losing people with whom I’d become close.
I never intended to get so personally involved with people on the internet. Honestly, what a pleasant surprise.
As I look back on 2013, I have to acknowledge the incredible people who have crossed my path and made my life a little more interesting and a lot more fun. I am especially grateful for the friendships and connections I’ve made through twitter, tumblr, and of course, wordpress.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year’s eve, and that 2014 brings much happiness into everyone’s lives.
Happy New Year!
