    My crockpot is no longer safe to use and I have had to say good bye. Good bye beloved crockpot . I remeber when we first met. You were wrapped up so pretty in wedding present paper.

    So, I'm attempting to become a healthier person. Lately I've come to the conclusion that my daily indulgence in Diet Coke may be slowly killing me. Why do I think this? Because on days where I especially over-indulge I feel terrible. Headaches, body aches, stomach issues, and even sometimes...

    I am thrilled!! Last year we tried to trade it in and downsize and the offer we got to trade it in was only 9 thousand. We've been checking around on and off and we also heard that trucks have gone up in value. (it was a 2006 Chevy 4x4 and super low millage) A car dealership gave us a trade in...

    I finally talked my DH into of getting rid of Direct Tv and just using the antenna only. I just can't see spending 86.00 a month on re-runs all the time.

    Cocoa Bear is my older dog. He was 14 in July and is a collie shephard mix. About a month or so ago we had a tumor removed from his backside. It was not cancerous however he never really picked up after that operation. He has not eaten anything for the last several days and is throwing up...
