This layout is for the first challenge at dirty scraps..... I am so excited about this challenge site!

Dirty Challenge #1

We all have negative experiences in our life
from the VERY bad to the regular ups and downs so I challenge you to scrap a PEEVE, annoyance or a downright angry moment that's the dirty part...
but here is the twist...
We are not just a bitching session here, this blog is to inspire you to look inside and grow... on the same page I want you to find something positive in that aggravation and put some perspective on it.

 My brother and nephew are currently living with me and my three kids....

"It drives me nuts how much food my brother eats, how much food my nephew wastes and how little (nothing), my brother contributes to the household grocery bill. It makes me crazy!!! But, he does help me with my boys, can fix anything electronic, mechanical and household maintenance and for that part, I am grateful. "

What I am learning is that I need to be less passive aggresive and I need to be less passive and more assertive, I need to sit down and talk about what is bothering me. How can he fix anything he doesnt know is bothering me??? I feel like a pressure cooker sometimes, maybe I should add this to my goals for the year.
