  1. Frugal Friday
    Well, today I'm thinking won't be all that frugal, as I have to go get a couple of social security cards for myself & Austin ... Not looking forward to the long wait. Will be doing my "homework" for my class while I wait. Or at least be reading my book "Getting things done" (helps us...
  2. Waste not Wednesday
    Started the day with a headache, so not going to work. I am doing laundry and will probably do the ironing later if I feel better. Decided to start back on a strict diet today. I am disgusted with myself for not controlling my health. Time for change!

    Was planning on making a costume and prop today for my upcoming production, but son is bringing grandsons to build up fence for their dog.

    Last month, I ate vegetarian the whole month. I did it to give my body a break, even though it was just a small one, from the abuse I heap upon it on a daily basis. This month, I will let my body know I still love it and want it to stick around, by finding the time to floss my teeth EVERY...
  16. Goals and Dreams
    January blipped by before I had a chance to even realize it was a new year. I didn't want February to go by the same way, so I challenged myself to do something that month that would make those twenty-nine days memorable. My challenge was to run five miles. I am hoping to meet that challenge...
