  • Medicare Fees Mini Rant

    Am I the only one that thinks it is kind of messed up that you pay into Medicare all your life, and then, when you finally get coverage (either through age or proven disability), you still have to pay monthly plan premiums, deductibles, and don’t receive even basic care like prescription coverage without buying additional […]

  • Poetry – Debt for Life

    My life will never run out of debt until the day it ultimately goes out of print.

  • Poetry – Money for Liberty

    (I wrote this new little poem the other day and have had a hard time deciding if it should just be shortened to contain the first stanza only, or if it is better with both. I figured I would share it with you guys and see if anyone had an opinion. Should I keep it […]

  • Water Heater Update

    Ugh. Turns out we have to replace the entire water heater. Over $1,800 (which we can’t afford)! This seriously sucks. To make matters worse, the guy couldn’t put the new one in until today, so we had to go all day and night without any water at all (they had to shut it off entirely […]

  • Who Do I Want to Be as an Artist?

    Today I was inspired by a blog post from Judith over at Artistcoveries, in which she asks the question – Who do I want to be as an artist? I love thinking about stuff like this, so I wrote the question down in my journal and brainstormed my own answers. Here is what I came […]

That letter turned my mood sour quickly. It said that I had been non-compliant with physical therapy and the spinal injections they had ordered, […]

  • Social Security Disability Rant

    Social Security Disability Rant

    Ok, so I had another subject planned for today’s post, but I need to rant a bit, so I’ll save that topic for later. I hope you won’t mind listening to my frustration today. So, I’m part of a group on Facebook for people with certain mental issues, and I have noticed many of the […]

  • ArtSnacks March 2018 Subscription Box Review

    ArtSnacks March 2018 Subscription Box Review

    First off, I want to let everyone know this will actually be the last ArtSnacks subscription box I will review. Honestly, I just didn’t feel like I was getting enough use out of it for the cost. I feel like I’m better off just shopping the discount art supplies at local shops. I did subscribe […]
