Victim of a McDonald's coupon
Monday, August 20, 2012      18 comments

I'm a coupon junkie. I can't resist a coupon offer, and I can't turn one down. It's sometimes dangerous to have them around, especially if they are fast food coupons, because try as I might to ignore them, I may very well use one. I used my McDo... Read more

Got through the emotional upheaval of the week and now all I have is some anxiety about getting the stuff into my car to take to tomorrow's Chinese auction at my handicapped group. Once again, I'm in charge so I have the most worries and the mos... Read more
Some changes are harder than others
Thursday, July 26, 2012      7 comments

Do you like changes? How do you deal with change? I think the answers to those questions lie in the reasons for the changes. If change is forced upon you it can be very difficult, to say the least. If you initiate the change after much deliberat... Read more

I got a really good night's sleep again last night and I woke up with a temporary backache, but feeling very refreshed. Feeling so good, my next step was a vow to put the indulgences, both food and emotional, of the past several days behind and ... Read more
