    It's that time of year again, getting cold, nasty, would love to find a warm, loving home for this cat we call Missy. She is small, loving, listens great and a great mouser.

    9/29/2016 2:36:03 PM, by BETHUMZ

    Lipstick! I'm not talking the cheap, 99 cent stuff. I'm talking the bigger name brand stuff that you shell out more money for and don't want to waste by stuffing your mouth with greasy potato chips and smearing it kind! I got a sample of some of the new Urban Decay Vice lipstick and LOVED IT, s... Read more

    I am nearing 3 months post op and for the most part everything has gone pretty smoothly.

    9/26/2016 3:41:18 AM, by PURPLE0906

    Saturday was a very long day for me. I made sure I had my patches on my back and my meds. The weather was cool and was pretty windy most of the day (so glad I wore a heavy hoodie). Pat, Bill and John had everything pretty much set up, I just had to put prices on my stuff. I heard a lot of good comme... Read more

  • In a better place...

    9/25/2016 8:49:09 AM, by KIMMYWIZZIE1

  • Plateau?

    9/15/2016 7:46:17 AM, by BETHUMZ

    So just how long can a plateau last anyway? That must be what this is. The darn scale won't budge and I know I'm doing everything right. What's frustrating is that I'm so close to getting under 300 lbs and I so want to get there. I can hear Bertha laughing at me when I get on the scale. I have ... Read more
