Breaking down bit by bit and I didn't even know it was happening. I don't eat fast food french fries. People say they don't and then they sneak them, but I don't go to fast food more than once a month and never order the fries. So why is my ... Read more

Trying to regain ground lost

Monday, November 26, 2012      2 comments

Stuck again

OUT TO DINNER
