    • Dear Rochelle,

      Yes, hopefully her vacation will give her the results she is hoping for–appreciation from her family. Yes, we do feel that way at times. Thank you 🙂



  1. Yes. some people do not realise how they slip into a habit of being the household lacky. Everyone else just thinks that is how it is and never seem to appreciate what is being done.
    If I was her, I would have walked out and left all the housework undone. Maybe they would come running.
