    after 9 years, my house is COMPLETELY decluttered..."exhale". In November 2000 my mother was gracious enough to offer to move in with me to my 1 bedroom apartment and help me take care of my now 8 year old son (I was pregnant at the time).

    I'm so glad I'm married and not in the "dating world" anymore. Apparently, a guy noticed an attractive woman on a busy street in the city. He approached her and she then gave him her number. This is what happened next: (NOTE: This is not a video, just audio)...
