The Negative Effect of Resistance

Over the weekend, my husband was given the task of grooming our Shi'tsu/Jack Russel, Chewy. Chewy used to be cute and patient and easy to groom but now she's 15 and grumpy and nips you when she's had enough. This time was the worst it's ever been and it took all the patience hubby had, … Continue reading The Negative Effect of Resistance

Magic Money

It's Money Monday! How are you all? I recently started a grateful journal. Every day I write 10 things that I'm grateful for and it's changed the way I feel about everything, but it's especially changed the way I feel about money.

The Best (and Worst) Day of My Life

The best (and worst) thing that happened to me was when I read the words, "You are responsible for everything that has happened in your life up until now."

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life & More Trucker Meals
