The check is in the mail

Did you see the May 14, 2007 issue of Newsweek? There was an article titled, "Baby Needs A New Pair of Shoes", which, as you probably guessed, is about the cost of raising children. I thought the article was a bit ridiculous, actually, it was like propaganda for population control.

It is probably a bit hypocritical for me to dismiss the majority of the article and then advocate one portion, but I am going to do it anyway. I must say that I wholeheartedly agree with the opening of the article which states: "It seems that if homemakers were ever paid for the myriad jobs they perform—from chef to chauffeur to psychologist—they'd command a whopping $138,095 annually." I would like to be paid bi-monthly please.

Sam said he loves me and appreciates all that I do and my check is in the mail.

I thought he might say that, so I bought this lamp ($30 at TJ Maxx) so he could show me how much he cares. Nice isn't it?
