"I'm glad my post was helpful. Now I should listen to my own advice and get some projects lined up! I ended a major sewing project and need to get another one in gear. I am so glad that you got the coloring book for yourself. You are worth it…"
"Hi Mary, just a quick note saying thanks to this post of yours I just bought an adult coloring book at a discount store today. I saw it and I knew I wanted it, and thought of your post saying to have supplies at hand. I went and bought what I…"
"I agree with all you said, Melissa, and you stated it so eloquently. When I was concerned about the weight I was gaining when I first started IE, I kept reminding myself that I had been on various diets for 40+ years. Did any of those diets work in…"
