Good for you Snip ... sometimes we just want to help but when they begin to take advantage we have to put the foot down. It's not always easy but it's needed.

You will feel much better about having done this than having let her get away with it again .. now .. deep breath and big sigh ... and

Thank you all for not being one of the leeches on my back, the pains in my butt or one of the reasons I sometimes wish I didn't have to get up in the mornings!

Well this place would not be the same without you!!

I understand what you are saying .. it's so good to have that safe place to escape to .. we are surrounded by wonderful people here who seem to have an abundant supply of support and caring .. it's like a family here

It took me years to learn how to say no!

It is a powerful little word!
