Thin and superficial

Let me put that in context. A person’s word or promise is like their skin. Thin and superficial.  I am at a point where I have almost given up on my business.

What Mom’s and Dad’s Do In The Morning

Disclaimer. Before you get on your high horse this is an account of what happens in MY house in the morning. I might be feeling a bit grumpy today. I have the onset of a migraine. I have a migraine. I did a lot of computer work yesterday, my eyes were sore, I was tired. Going through the support email is physically draining. I went to bed early. Early being around...
