  Nobody said you said anything.  I am so sorry this is so hard for you.   We were discussing the meaning of "sometimes."

Where do you get 24/7 out of this?

  Read slowly.  I did not get "24/7" out of the above statement.  We were discussing the meaning of the word "sometimes."  Unless your husband does blue collar work 24/7, he works sometimes.   I'm beginning to  see why he turned to a life of crime.

  What in heaven's name are you talking about now?  Do you finally understand the five word sentence under discussion?

Most of my proud mommy moments come from individual conversations, or seemingly insignificant events. Things like huge scholarships or first place this or that are good, sure. But hearing my kid give good advice to a friend, or stand up for what's right, or know al the lyrics to a Styx sing make me prouder than many of the "big" things.

is there something shameful about blue collar jobs?
