  1. Christmas
    I suspect for the most part I will be alone this year. Things are not really great with my 21 year old son right now and I have drifted away from family years ago and most friends as well. I was just wondering if anyone else was spending the holiday alone and what you would be doing as far as...
  2. Frugal Living
    So I was thinking about flexibility and knowing how do do things differently is frugal and would come in handy in down economic times. Knowing that vinegar could be used to clean instead of store bought cleaners would come in handy if the price of cleaners was to much or the stores were out or...

    In October my best friend was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. Her initial PET scan showed a few spots on her spine and liver as well. She completed a round of chemo in April and a lumpectomy mastectomy of her left breast in May. Of the 23 lymph nodes removed, 19 were cancerous. Her...
  4. Pregnancy
    I think I may be pregnant. I am ten days late. I haven't tested in a few days but the last test said negative. I've been cramping the past two weeks off and on but nothing. I'm considering getting a blood test done but I'm not sure if it's too soon or anything. Advice? TIA!

    Well, I have been so tired lately and stressed. Just work and some money stuff. But you know how you put the milk in the kitchen cabinet or something crazy like that? I brought my laundry hamper downstairs, pushed it over to the wood stove, opened it up and grabbed a big handful of laundry...
  6. Frugal Living
    Because of my personal beliefs (not to mention ALL the recalls, chemicals, etc) I "like" to buy all/most organic/non processed food/HBA. HOW can you buy organic and still be frugal? I'm keeping Harvest Health in business, but boy my pockets are getting lighter.

    Hated it. I was raised Catholic. I dreaded going to Church and Sunday school. It was boring. I didn't like most of the music groups either that played during the Church. It was too loud for me and didn't like the music and a lot of the songs that were played. Also, I don't agree with some...

    My absolute #1 favorite cat has a uterine infection and is being spayed today. DH and I don't have children, but our cats are our "kids" to us. I know you shouldn't play favorites, but if a heart can live outside the body, then my heart resides in that fluffy black and white tuxie-cat. She...

    So this morning I bought another fan. As I am walking out the store I am thinking to myself "lets see how many fans do I have now?" Well, I have 5. And this is for a one bedroom apt. Hmmmm? I do have central air but for some reason I think the fan part would cost more to run. Noise and...

    I keep seeing these ad's on tv for Valu Village. On Monday Feb 19th - the entire store will be at 50% off everything. Not sure who shops there but I figured thats a good enough reason to go. I have to go back to the hospital first then back to work but I could 'push' that to 12 noon if I...
