1. Don't ask me where the vacuum cleaner is or how it works. The fact that you have to ask is a reminder that I'm failing to assign my kids enough chores--one more area where I'm falling down on the job.
2. Do not--repeat, NOT--yell and expect an answer from the other end of the house when my throat is so sore I can barely talk.
3. Asking "What's for dinner?" when I am curled up in bed dosed up on cough syrup is considered justifiable homicide in 36 states.
Thanks. I feel better already.
