    Tried to cancel my eFax number today. Don't need it anymore - only needed it when we were buying the rental property... Can't do it automatically. Have to talk to a "live chat" CSR. Oi vey, at least it wasn't on the phone: You TRY to be nice, ya know?

    I'm just curious if anyone else has read the Dave Pelzer series of books? If not, I highly recommend that you start at the beginning with A Child Called It. The second book is Lost Boy & the next is A Man Named Dave. This is an amazing man!! These books kept me in tears, sick to my stomach...

  10. Pregnancy
    ...which is really weird, since I've lost eight pounds so far in this pregnancy due to my illness.  Apparently my body weight is shifting, though, because as of yesterday my jeans were uncomfortable enough to make me go dig out some elastic-waist pants from my maternity clothes box. Last...

    I was fascinated by a flylady letter this morning that talks about using a new service in her area, where she submits her grocery list, and marks when to pick up, and she avoids the whole mess of time in the store shopping for herself. At first I thought, how spendy of her. (when will I quit...

    I saw this cute game on another board and thought it might be fun to play here too.  The way it works is the person above will list either a food or a drink and the following person will say if they like it, hate it or never tried it (NTI).  They will then list a new item for the next person.  I...
