    One of my customers at work has a huge account that takes a lot of my time and effort. It's a monthly order we've been running for about a year. Well, last month's order was totally the order from hell... and really had me tearing my hair out. I took calls on weekends, emails from home (and...

    Got the news last night that my very first boyfriend was murdered yesterday. I felt like my breath had been knocked out of me. We only dated a few times, but it was such a sweet first love. Then we drifted our separate ways. He came to see me once in college, and we realized that we would...

    know it's stupid, and keep doing it anyway on the off chance that you'll get away with it? I just did, now I'm wiping coffee grounds off my wall :rolleyes: I don't use the plastic kitchen bin for our compost because I hate cleaning it. We just put the compost in empty cereal boxes because...

    So I went grocery shopping last night and one of the items on my list was chicken breasts. I bought the store brand which are significantly cheaper than Tyson. Anyway, DS was acting up and I was so focused on getting him home and into the house that I completely forgot that I'd shoved the bag...

    I went way over on a week where I didn't even have a budget to work with! We are getting a side of beef. So that ate up this weeks budget, I had set aside for some milk, fruit/veggies and bread. Well, I decided we were low on too many things, so I got my usual budget. Then it's our first...

    Nothing super exciting planned for today. I've been enjoying taking life back down to the routine, at least mostly anyway. I didn't even get to the grocery yesterday. I just didn't feel like it when I got off work. Instead I went straight home and stole an hour for myself with a book. Reading in...

    Ok, CBS has been an hour off all night. Did I miss a time change or something? I turned the TV on at 8:00 and 60 minutes was on ~ an hour late. I figured there was some special or something on earlier and the schedule got screwed up...but then they put on Big Brother at 10:00. 11:00 rolls...

    I didn't do ANYTHING constructive today. Well, I did send out one resume online and call my doctor and find out all my tests came out normal. She's going to change my prescription for anti-depressants to one that WalMart has for $4, since it will cost me over $100 on my prescription plan for...
