Gift Giving

Gift Giving

My favorite part of Christmas is giving gifts. I love the reaction on people’s faces. I love the amount of time and thought I put into each gift. I rarely give a thoughtless gift and am troubled by it when I do. I come from a family of givers. Both of my parents have always … Continue reading

Rise – Big Brother All Up In Your Diet

My brother sent me a link to a really interesting concept. Have y’all heard of this new app, Rise? It’s pretty fascinating to me. Essentially, it’s a nutritionist in your phone.

Y’all, since last Thursday it’s been hell for us. Let me explain… I came home from work on Thursday and thought the house smelled like crap. I attributed it to the cats using the litter box.
