1.  Racisim.   In this day/age, there should not be any of it.  And in our small community there shouldn't be what my daughter has had to put up with.     I get so upset.   She can defend herself against the usual teasing, but when it comes to race (or adoption), I get mad and get mad fast.  It happened again on Friday.  Will it ever stop?


2. Family that does not pick up after themselves.  Esp. on weekends when I'm working.   I am not super-mom and cannot do it all.  I am tired.   


3.  People who break promises to my girls.    They have had many people promise to do things with them and never carry through.    If you're not  going to carry through, just do me a favor and not promise.    I deal with the fall-out when they don't hold up their end of bargain.  I've taught my girls not to believe anything that people tell them b/c of their track record and how they just don't carry through.

Are you always angry with your boss, lover, friend or family member? Does anger control your life? Then come on in and let's deal with it.

I agree with your racism post... Lauren starts Kindergarten in the fall and I'm so nervous.  So far we have had to deal with a 17-18 year old working at the mall making fun of Lauren's eyes.  I just happen to turn around as she was doing it.  I was angry and hurt for my daughter. We had only been home from China for 3 months she was only 19 months old and did not know.  It makes me think how did the parents raise that teenager?   I was raised not to make fun of Anyone!!!
