Been anxious

I've been kind of anxious the last few days. There's been a lot on mind. If it's not one thing, it's another. Things are just pilling up, and I'm getting tired of it. It's getting a lot. I wish it would just slow down, at very least. A lot of it has to do

Frustrated

Seen as I had no real debt, was miles away from my pension and didn't own a house when the financial crisis hit I thought it had no real effect on me. I guess it did indirectly, wages not increasing and the like but I didn't really feel it the way oth

A connundrum

Growing so fast

I have three healthy kids, 5, 3 1/2, and 2. When my eldest was born, other parents would tell me to cherish every moment, as they grow up so fast. At the time, I kind of understand. But now, five years later, I realize it even more. I really understan
