Friday Fun – Paid to Shop

Shopping is my thing!  I love researching and comparing prices to try to get the best deal.  With Christmas coming up, I will be doing a lot more shopping than usual and there is nothing better than those holiday sales....or is there?

Coping With Loss

Today is a special day, my grandfather's birthday.  He was such a strong man in our family and always had something to say.  Unfortunately, we lost him eight years ago to Alzheimer's disease.

He doesn't like to talk and… Continue reading Family Bonding – LOL
