The economy sucks right now. Dads and moms are losing their jobs. People have cancer - people like moms with small children. I personally know families who have been hit hard by both of the above.
Apparently, there are much bigger problems in the world. One such problem that you will probably gasp in horror about. I met a woman yesterday who is remodeling her kitchen. And this is what she said, "I don't have a kitchen now. It's horrible."
I'm happy for her that her kitchen woes are her biggest problem right now. I certainly don't want everyone to be walking around afflicted by the bad news that seems to be swirling around these parts lately. But horrible? Seriously? Really?
