    It Hurts

    I'm a shopoholic with no $$$....buying things makes me happy...I guess it replaces people? I understand hoarders to a point. Not being able to walk through your house easily and it getting to the point where you have mold and dust lurking is the limit. If I had money Id probably...

    Like Grandparents

    I never had any. Not on either side. One drank herself to death, another died of emphysema, another while being treated for a rare form of leukemia and the last I am not sure. All before I was ever born. I wonder all the time what my life might have been like if they were in...
