Wow, Illinois just placed a HUGE tax on all the "bad" stuff. Soda pop, teas, candy, and alcoholic beverages. Guess that is just another reason to give the stuff up. I have to admit I don't really do candy much, but love my beer and wine. I ... Read more

After many months of stressing over the Oncology Nursing certification exam, I passed. It's a big deal in and of itself (at least in my mind). But the really great thing is that as a stress eater, I might have packed on an extra 20 lbs or so, ... Read more
