free spirit

I never considered myself a free spirit, but maybe I am more than I thought. Sometimes I just want to travel and write. No schedule, no commitments, just going where I want; visiting family, friends, and seeing the world. I suppose I can do that now, but it’s harder when you have responsibilities.

wonder drug

Zicam. Ever heard of it? I am calling it the wonder drug. I woke up yesterday morning all congested. My nose ran like there was no tomorrow and I just felt yucky. Then a friend told me about Zicam, and to take it on the onset of the symptoms. So I did. …And it worked! … [Read more…]
