We definitely put up with a lot for "family". It can be rough. I took a vacation from mine for awhile and it was good for me but they never apologized or even missed me. The thing is some are really cool. So I tolerate the idiots to be with the ones I care about.
I write about my experiences in life. Some mundane, some sad, some funny, and hopefully none boring! And, I now have top writer status in “Life”.
