Confessions of a Class "A" Pack Rat
Saturday, March 27, 2010      10 comments

One of the things I am working on, beyond eating healthy and working out more, is de-cluttering my world. If you’ve ever watched the shows on TV, you now know that it’s more than just “stuff”. It’s emotions, attachments, hopes and dreams. Past,... Read more

My usual weigh in day is Monday. This morning, for some unforeseen reason, I decided to step on the scale. The evil hunk of metal told me I had gained 1.5 lbs. Nope, no way! Darn it, the Wii agreed... + 1.5 I still refuse to believe it. I have w... Read more
