    How much I love my main job. I have a second job I was suppose to go to today, but ended up not, and I realized how happy I was not to go. I have this second job thinking it would replace my fulltime job in a yr or so, and now I think, no more. I will stay where I am, even if it means I would...

    My dd (21) broke up with her long time bf 3 weeks ago. Today was really hard for her. Then, as I was standing in line at the bakery, I had a woman say to me, "I hate this day, it's so depressing, I'm single". She was a nice looking woman, but she was having a rough day. You know I never realized...
  5. Success Stories
    As you may have noticed(or But I didn't post for several weeks! And everything came to a halt, or almost. I had not realized how much visiting these boards motivated me to stay on track! So I need to remember to stop by often! Keeps me focused and on track and there's always an...

  8. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    And that is, I really hate not being able to help someone else out. So I keep books that I don't use much, at least for me to read all the time, because I loan them out on a variety of subjects to a variety of people. I keep my favourites file jammed here on the computer so I have links I can...

  11. Homesteading and gardening
    I have 8 potato seedlings right now (one more on the way, and I really thought I planted 10, but I can't seem to find the 10th.). I haven't planted any since I was a kid, and I barely remember doing it then. I am so pleased with how the little plants look. They are so attractive. And they...

    Okay, so, I've been wearing my pedometer and I've realized that throughout the week, while at work, I walk anywhere between 6,000 and 8,000 steps a day. I figured that the weekends would be around 10,000 because I'm up the stairs, down the stairs, doing laundry, sweeping, cleaning, playing with...

    For me, it was cooking from scratch. Particularly things with alot of ingredients. Because I work 50 hours per week, it was completely stressing me out at dinner time. And then all the dishes! It probably doens't help that I hate to cook anyway. So, I've learned to rely on easy to cook...
