My Husband’s Addiction…

My husband has a serious addiction. In fact, two of his brothers have the same addiction. They unashamedly blame their mother. Apparently, she was the one who started them, and now they can’t stop. They have to have their addiction every day, and they get the heebie-jeebies if they don’t get it. Yes, all three men are […]
