It shouldn't be like that. I'll tell you at the time if you're doing something wrong. At your review, i'll remind you about it and use it a the reason I'm only giving you a 5c per hour increase.

Didn't piss me off, but definitely added some sadness to the day. There are at least a dozen police, seregnaza and a few news crews across the street because one of the workers on the apartment building under construction, died. Best as I can determine from people is that he was on the 11th floor, leaning out, and something hit him on the head and he fell. It sounded like he was wearing his safety harness and it wrapped around his neck when he fell. The news tonight will have the details. Definitely sad and cannot help but think how his family will suffer. I have been convinced that construction site is more dangerous than it should be. Every day I watch and wonder how there are not more accidents.

It always seems like it's more entertaining for the person doing it than the one watching.

I used to do ballet and tap, I hated ballet but the dance school I went to insisted you took ballet too. Tap was fun. I've recently started going to UJam classes, which are immense amounts of fun, I'd highly recommend them if you are really wanting to do some kind of dance activity, suitable for all sizes and ages

See that's the thing, you need props like Gene had in the famous scene, get people watching that and the feet action won't matter so much.

Longish story cut as brief as possible.

MIL got sick, had surgery, unable to live independently, at least for a while, we offered our home (we've done it for a year previously in her home).

my Husband and his sister fell out at the beginning of that previous term because he said "put a cork in it" when she was going off on him about something.

She is not seen for a year............... the entire time I'm nursing his mother. we did have a formal wedding celebration 3 months after this event and invited her and her husband (olive branch much?) they came and refused to speak to him, and said 1 sentence to me twice. like it was the rehearsed line and all they were prepared to say.

Now MIL is out of hospital, we've asked if they could be polite to me and respectful when they come into my home to see their mother. Go **** yourself was the response.

MIL wants to see all her family, and rather than say Trixie is the person who looked after me for a year without your help, and has stepped up again this time, maybe she has a point that you shouldn't be a twat to her. - she's saying I'm stopping her seeing her family.

there is a good point, I know exactly how respected I am, and I don't have to worry. I'm packing her things and she can go to their house tonight. I wouldn't leave a goldfish in their care, but hey ho, not my problem
