Great idea! I do that for my medicines anyhow. I also rotate food frequently to make sure I’m cycling through it.

I also have gotten myself in the habit of not “stocking up” like I used to. Granted, when I had three hungry kids at home, that made more sense. But now that there’s just two of us in the house, I try to avoid buying too much, even if it is on sale, so I don’t end up having food past its expiration.

Also, I don’t think eating something past its expiration is a sin. Certainly if it looks or smells bad, stay away. But frequently the expiration date is a “best by” suggestion, not a “gone bad” warning.

Giving myself permission to enjoy a hobby (I read a book) was a fun one. And here I thought this would be all about “sweat equity”!

I asked that question since the confirmation email told me to expect my first challenge on August 31st. I thought perhaps you had gotten it already, since you signed up earlier. I’m full of curiosity now!

Please no ….. let’s ease into this, shall we?

I signed up too. Have you gotten your first challenge yet. My acknowledgement email states that I will get the first challenge starting today, but since I so recently signed up, I’m not sure when that will come.

Fri, May 12 6:52am · Mother's Day Stories

We all have them. Those funny, frustrating, poignant Mother’s Day stories. I want to hear them. Here’s mine!

I was a young mother with two kids. We were a military family and I got the rare treat of being invited (with my family) to the Officer’s Club for Mother’s Day brunch. I wore my nicest dress because I never got to go anywhere so fancy! We were just getting seated when my son, Sean (3) stood up on his chair (they hadn’t brought his booster seat yet). I told him “Sit down before you fall.” Just like that he fell. He put his front teeth right through his lip, my pretty dress was ruined, and we got to spend the day in the emergency room instead. Sigh! We still laugh about it now and every year I tell him he owes me brunch.

Tell me your story! Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day all!
