orange is my absolute favorite!!!!

Days that have equal amounts of good and bad???
Friends, family and neighbors losing their jobs in record numbers in Appalachia in the coalfields.
Saddens me, that a good friend got his lay off slip on his birthday.
Saddens me that I had to unfriend a facebook friend and real life neighbor for asking me if I knew where she could "find anything". Meaning drugs.
Saddens me even more that my own family members ask me that sometimes as well.
Knowing that my son is in NA and has been clean for over 2 years and is very much involved with helping others thru NA.
And yet, these people ask me this, as if I have some connection thru the drug cartel!!!
Maybe losing over 50 pounds gave people the impression it was from drug use.
Anyway, you say no, you unfriend, you tell people that you are po'd about their assumptions and you move on.
Good things, today, the weather was wonderful and I stayed within calorie range and feel pretty good tonight.
Not tired or sleepy and have gotten some more house work done.
You would wonder how two people can accumulate so much work to be done.
And one more good thing, stopping off at a local thrift type outlet store today and discovering they keep my Trident vitality gum that all the other stores seem to have stopped selling.
In fact, I had ordered it thru and figured when I ran out I would once again have to order it thru them.
It was in two big shopping cards full of all different kinds of gums, so I only got 3 packs, tomorrow I am going back and go thru those buggies until I find every pack I can find, at 3 for a dollar!!!!
I chew the gum when I walk, it has almost become a ritual, walking clothes, earbuds, hair in band, walking shoes on, and trident gum.
Now, I have my gum and no excuses!!!

    The is sad that people hit you up for things like that and it is sad that people are losing their jobs like that. Hopefully things improve soon!

    As for the gum, I am all about anything orange flavor!

    did you know that xyletol in sugar free gum is very good for your teeth?
    well it is, I chew it frequently now that I don't drink anymore.
