Visits

People were coming over and I was frantically trying to get the house ready. I was also driving my family crazy, barking out orders to pick up, help set the table and not to mess up the living room. While I was cleaning the kitchen, I realized I'd pushed them too far.

- Mary, I snapped at my 12-year-old daughter, where's the broom?

- I don't know, Mom, she fired back. Where'd you put it when you landed?
