I have, once again, been experiencing anxiety. Only this time, it only happens when I'm not doing something constructive. Considering the summer is the slow time where I work, it's been a daily thing. I worked a couple hours yesterday, even thou... Read more

Warning: This blog is going to be both celebratory AND a bit depressing. First, the bad. Saturday morning hubby's car's brakes froze on the rear left tire. It's going to cost us almost $700 to fix that ONE wheel. I just finished payi... Read more

I had a wonderful birthday, even though it was really low key! (I spent half the day in pajamas.) However, not a single one of my step-family wished me a happy birthday in any way. Not even a quick one over Facebook. So guess who's no longe... Read more
