It's the most wonderful time of the year... Eating too much and the wrong choices. Sigh, I'll get past this. My house is getting close to the end of it's makeover. I still need to buy shoes. There is not much for me to do at work. I am n... Read more

I've been reading my SP friends blogs lately about their fights to be in control. Thought about it myself over and over as well since I have been fighting my own demons. I refuse to step on the scale. "Oh, my! "my inner brain cried. "What's go... Read more
