    Best Christmas Shopping Day EVER!!!!

    I swear the universe was on my side today. I'm one of those "get everything done way early" for Christmas people, but this year I was stressing as I had not done anything yet. The mall and shopping at Christmas gives me anxiety (way too many people) and I find people are always so rude...

    How Do You Deal...?

    We just got word that my husbands Grandmother will be passing shortly. He is obviously upset, it's his Grandma. But to be honest, I'm relieved. She has suffered long enough and is 94 years old. I've never been one to be visibly upset when someone passes away. I've been lucky that most of...
