I told DH exactly how I felt about his lies, and stealing. <BR> Of course you would say it only helped me because he doesn't remember. but something clicked and he has been much less agitated. <BR> <BR> the bank also finally admitted their mistake and now we are waiting for the paperwork to close. <BR> that will be great. I also think the price talk we have about my house will mean that we are not moving. But I now have a light at the end of the tunnel a...

But she was a great lady and I enjoyed her stories and poetry. This quote running around the web right now, I'm sure didn't originate with her but it serves my life now. <BR> <BR> “What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it.

The falls trail was 8 miles long. Fortunately for me the upper gorge trail was on a little more than 4 even going all the way to the falls!. But hiking down was a chore, lots of rocks to climb over. I fell once, my hip, thigh an foot that I landed on are still hu...

I've been stuck at 10 lbs lost for awhile. though I just tracked my breakfast and it is 20 carbs by itself. I probably will have to cut down on that.
