    One of the nice girls at the facility complimented me on my wedding ring while I was knitting.  It is the first time anyone liked my ring.  I don't believe in spending money on expensive jewelry, not to mention most of it isn't my taste. My ring cost 20 bucks.  It...

    So the soap I use for showers is kind of like.

    Today I wore absolutely no make-up.

    .. Very rare for me... I'm addicted to mascara... And normally when I don't wear makeup people think something is wrong... Like I've been crying or I'm sick. But, today no one said anything like that to me and two women I know were telling me how beautiful my complexion is and...

    A Reason To Smile

    I was paid a compliment yesterday actually and it was quite unexpected. Going to the dentist is hard for me. I have a fear of them for one thing and I always expect the worst. I also think I have an ugly smile and rarely show my teeth in pictures because of that. I take care of...
