Earlier this month, I had a charlie horse in one leg, and the other leg keeps threateni... Read more
Geez, I can't stand "Hopeless Mondays"

Compliments I have received today
Sometimes, it's not what I look like on the outside that people notice, it's what's on the inside, what I do for people, or how I help others.
Today, like most Thursdays since March, I emailed the couponing group at work, highlighting the s... Read more
