    Hello again! Went out to the stores this afternoon and got some pretty good deals at Rite Aid. Ganier 100% color hair dye is on sale for $3.99 and I had $3.00 off coupons. So 2 boxes were $1 each. And I still have about 19 coupons left so I'll probably go and buy more at the end of the...

    I find that as long as my hands are working I don't have time to snack. So far today I have reinvented my capris by shortening the legs and adding a split at the bottom to dress the legs up a little and I made a new pillow case from scraps to match the blanket I just finished for Brie's bed...
