Re: Gambling - a RANT!

I have a horror of gambling because my family is chock-a-block with alcoholics and people with mental illness that likes to hold hands with prescription drug addictions. Anything we discover we like, we like it WAY too much. I'd rather light money on fire than gamble with it. Sheila, you did good. ...

Re: Gambling - a RANT!

You are a great mama!!!! Long story short, you are right gambling is an illness and it can create much family hardship. MY SIL has been taking care of her mother (age 90) for over 3 years now, as MIL slips more and more into dementia. The resentment is because MIL gambled away every penny that she ...

Re: Gambling - a RANT!

Gambling - a RANT!

The backstory is that back in December, my sister (age 52 going on TWELVE) asked my parents if she could "come spend a couple of days" at their country house (not "country house" in the nice sense of the word - it's an unlivable dump) and bring her dogs.

Re: Small Goals - Pennies to Dollars

Back from the grocery stores and could write several more paragraphs about sticker shock and high prices - but you are all well aware and don't need me ranting on about the obvious. I picked up some mark-downs ans sale items at the "regular" grocery then went on to Save a Lot and got lettuce (.99 pe...

Re: Daily Check In May 9, 2021

Good morning and Happy Mother's Day to all Moms/Grandmas/Fur Moms/Adopted Moms/and the list could go on and on. As I said in a previous post I played Goldilocks last night, trying out different beds. I managed a few hours in a couple, but the third I was lucky if I got 20 mins. It is going to be a ...
