I remarried 5 years ago and have a 17 and 18 year old. My 17 year old lives with his father. My new husband is a perfectionist and has very high standards (mostly of others LOL which really isn't very funny). I think he is border-line obsessive complusive. My daughter is the opposite. She loves her messy room and her bad habits and doesn't care what we think. She thinks we act to perfect and we are trying to make her that way too. My husband will not leave her alone about anything she does wrong. I am stuck in the middle, being made to feel like I have to choose a side or I could lose one of them. I believe they both are acting silly. My daughter needs to pick up her socks (so to speak) and help out more. And my husband needs to let other people live a little even if it is a little messy at times. I want a home, not a house. I want fun and laughter.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
