I Was The Person Who Swore She'D Never Buy A Kindle
Members Were Sparked
For the past two years, I told friends that there was no way I'd give up a "real" book for an electonic reader. Then the price of the Kindle fell and it arrived last week. I loaded 200 free books and will have to start a 12-step program "Kindles Anon" in order to tear myself away from reading. Honestly? I love it. Where else could I store 200-plus books or carry them around with me? And BTW, I still read "real" books. No need to give them up.

I am not a person who thinks they know everything but I know what I have learnt during my travel through life. I am trying to get points across to my daughter and I think she just listens and then is going to do what she wants. She buys 6 or more TV dinners to feed the family and she could buy a cut up chicken, some hamburger and maybe something else for a couple of days dinner. Determination will continue to get the ideals across to her or GD just for there own healthy living.252
I got the idea from a Sparkfriend who is saving money from her swear jar to buy a new wardrobe when she reaches her goal. Me? I am saving my change in measured amounts for doing the right thing. Dime for 10 minute walk, penny for every glass, etc. AND a bonus if I contribute to each goal daily
Staying within food range, getting fruits & veggies, doing a chore at home, a task I don't want to do at work, staying in touch with a friend, there are many ways to reward me for doing good things for myself and others.
