Right after I retired, I stopped wearing a watch for a few years. Now I wear a fitbit, but at least I don't have to check it every few minutes to make sure I'm staying on schedule!

Be sooo grateful! With Medicare, a supplement, and part D, I pay around $425 a month. Each year it increases, so it seems that the older you get, the more you pay. Even with that, I'm still happy...

I like the Toll House recipe, and I like them soft. I have to have gluten free, and I found that I have to bake them a minute or two longer, but they are still soft and taste just as good.

I've been coloring my hair, and it's expensive! My mom and her mom had almost black hair, so when they turned gray, it was beautiful. I was blond turned brown, and I don't think it looks as nice. ...

I wanted to transfer them to my DD, That didn't work. I ended up using them up on books that she could use for her classroom. I don't understand why it bothers Scholastic who spends the points.
