Cafemom and Target Present: Mad Life
Helping today’s parents improve their relationships, feel better about themselves and raise happy, health kids.

 Have you ever had one?  I did back a few years ago when I separated from dh.  They are very scary.  So last night my son has one and it scared the crap out of him.  We weren't sure what it was.  I had a suspicion but still with the chest pains and breathing issues he was having we needed to go be sure.  So I was in the ER with him and got home after 3 am and then had to get up and come to work.  Ugh....lol  I look and feel a little like crap today!  lol

I have a friend who just started a cleaning business she makes quiet a bit, I'm kinda surprised really. I figured with people cutting back she wouldn't be able to keep up it up with 7 kids!! But she's doing great with it.

 You're welcome!!

& yes you are correct about the clothes! No One can ever even ATTEMPT to fix what they messed up. I guess they figure it looks better thrown on top the stacks! There are times when the shelves are so messy that I just have to completely clear them off and start again. --I love when I get to do that!!

Quoting louannwilkins:

 Thank you!  The house cleaning thing came about because I was married and at stay at home wife and mom.  Then when we seperated I knew I needed to be able to take care of myself financially.  I like cleaning house.  lol  I can do it and see an instant result and if you just do a little here and there it's not so overwhelming.  So...that's how it started.  lol  I also was managing a tanning salon but made more money doing this in less hours so it's what I do now full time.  Thanks for the kind words about my son too.

Folding clothes is a pain in the butt! lol  After people come along and look at them all I'm sure they're a mess to fix back!  ugh....lol  Have a great day!!!   :)

I like novel answers a lot more then just a yes or a no. Heck I'm 24 and just trying to keep my house clean stresses me out. Since you do clean houses for a living do you keep on top of your house work or do you slack off when it comes to your house? I don't even like cleaning my own house I doubt I could actually clean someone elses and then come back and clean my own, lol. One of my big jobs at work is folding all the clothes in the kids department so I like to use that as an excuse on why I can't do our own laundry. It's not like I really need an excuse I didn't like to do it before I worked, lol. WOW! He has so much going on, poor kid. Having a girlfriend is hard enough work I couldn't imagine adding all the rest to his life. Good luck with the girl in his life.

Quoting louannwilkins:

 You're welcome....I clean houses for a living and it's getting harder and harder to do as I get older.  lol  I feel like sometimes they don't realize all that I do either.  I've got long time customers so they all know me very well.  I love what I do but I also feel like it stresses me out a lot too.

As for my son...he has so many things going on.  He had seizures when he was young and took meds 3 times a day for many years, plus he has ADD, plus he has a personality disorder.......I mean that right there is enough but he also is having trouble with the girl he's seeing and he really likes her so much.  I just think life gets overwhelming for him at times.  Thank you for asking!!  I appreciate it.  Sorry to give you a novel for an answer.  lol    :)

Quoting mmeredith:

Thanks and yes it is. I think for the most part most of the women here are over worked and under paid. Thank you, that means a lot! & I hope your son is doing better now. Did you guys figure out what might have caused it?


 Again, I'm so sorry.  I know your job has to be stressful.  Most likely it's over worked and under paid.  I feel that way about mine sometimes too!!  lol  Try to hang in there and remember to come here and vent when you need to.  There are some good listeners here!!   :)

Quoting mmeredith:

Once the holidays are done with it will just be once in a blue moon. I work in retail and it's honestly the worst job ever. I really just can't handle it.

Quoting louannwilkins:

 Oh wow!  That's a lot.  I'm sorry!!  I hope yours will get better too!!   :)

Quoting mmeredith:

Aww. Poor kiddo. I actually get them quiet a bit. Here lately its at least twice a week.

 Good luck with them!  I hope you can find out something to help you.  Let us know.   :)

Quoting wifeynmommie80:

Yes! I had them constantly , I thought I was dying and went to the ER and they were like ur just having anxiety, panic attacks. And I only get them when I am on my period and ovulating so I am positive its hormonal, i still need to see my Gyn to see if they have any tips on that.

 Well then I guess you know exactly what they're like.  I'm sorry your family has them but glad you at least don't have to deal with them yourself.   Hopefully the meds have helped them both.   :)

 The meds have helpped them .. however my mom also keeps a paper bag with her at all times just in case .. She says it works faster than the meds sometimes ..
