Miste, This sleeplessness must be contagious. I lay awake from 11:20 until 3:30, and awakened at 7:00. I can't make it on four hours sleep! I'm exhausted, and was last night too, and just keep turning over and staring at my eyelids! Adrienne, this happens to you, too, doesn't it? About the pricing? There's a specific formula for that, involving materials, hours, utilities, wages.. Perhaps it's on the web. I know there are books galore written on selling your crafts. Good luck.
Laurie, Why didn't you just drive your house to the vet? (NOOOO, Laurie, Don't throw the brass lamp at me, not again!) Poor little Munchkin. Well, when the vet takes care of this worm problem etc., he'll thrive under your care. And by the sound of things, if you don't take great care of her, Gary will be throwing things at you! Isn't it wonderful that he insisted on keeping her? I can just hear you saying, "We----ll, if you insist, Gary....."
Tamme, You know a man cannot learn from a poor, dumb female. You're right. Some men do know everything. Actually, part of it is pride, and I honestly think part of it is they can't forget that until the last couple of years in high school, or even college, all the smart kids were girls! They don't realize that girls simply grow emotionally more quickly, that this is normal. So, they spend their lives telling women they know everything. Not all men, but certainly my husband. He always bragged about me behind my back, though! I'm not guessing at this. All teachers are required to learn these things in methods classes and educational psychology.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Here's a prayer of Thanksgiving for the sacrifices of all those in the military services. I pray the day will come when they are no longer in danger.
