I just got done doing the dishes, and I realized that I have a very specific way of doing them, right down to the utensils. Plates, bowls, cups/mugs, pots and pans, large utensils, knives, spoons, forks.

Michelle MillerPerspectives15 Comments

Contrary to Time‘s recent “Chore Wars” article, which claimed that these days, men do an equal share of the household labor, I suspect that men may do plenty of chores, but that we ladies still do the true majority.

I am an unapologetic fan of cats.   I’m a fan of most domesticated critters no matter if they’re dogs, rabbits, turtles, birds or some sort of elongated rodents.   At present, I share my house with three cats.   Three cats that create what I think might be an unusually large amount of waste product by converting the money I spend on … Read More

Finances. Unless you’re in the financial industry, you probably hate dealing with finances, period. But you probably hate even more to discuss those finances with your significant other.
