I'm not exactly sure if I understood what reply you're wanting.
However, a love-hate relationship.....my sister!
I would love to hate her! Right now, she is proving to be the laziest, the-world-owes-me person in the universe! She "WON'T" get a job, she expects my mom to fix her car, giver her gas money, buy her cigarettes, etc. My sister is 34 or 35. ???? She messed up her life, now she is determined to live off my mother for the rest of hers.
Now, as far as finances, we've had bad years before. This wasn't too good, but we've had worse.
In 2006, I'm going to work on the few pounds I've gained, save more money, try my best to get along with my sister, and DH and I are venturing out in our biz.
I'm going to believe that things will only get better. .....Remember, God won't put on you what you can't handle. So, when you think you've had enough, let go, let God. He'll carry you through.
