My Terrifying Best Buy Experience

My Terrifying Best Buy Experience

So, I went into Best Buy today to have a brand-new computer (okay, 6 weeks old) replaced after speaking to customer support over the phone, and being told that it could be returned at the Best Buy where I purchased it for an exchange.

Whispers in the Trees is Growing!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Wow, what a month it’s been at Whispers in the Trees!

Why I Hate Getting a New Phone – a Laugh for Your Day!

Why I Hate Getting a New Phone – a Laugh for Your Day!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I’ve had a great, indestructible Ulefone Armor2 phone for about a year now. In the last few months, while I was talking to someone on the phone, it does all kinds of fun things, such as put the call on hold, mute, dial into my voicemail, dial other people in my address book, and hang up on the caller. While initially entertaining, it became a useless indestructible phone. Since I had purchased the phone on…

Fibromyalgia: Pain Management, Medications, and their Effectiveness

Follow my blog with Bloglovin If you have Fibromyalgia, you’ve probably tried a lot of different treatments and medications that are supposed to help, and you’ve probably found that they either didn’t work or stopped working over a period of time.

Apartment For Rent: Females and Exchange Students Only

View as posted at The Good Men Project   Just the other day my 19-year-old, J, announced that to be closer to his college, he would like to move into the city that his college is in, and asked me for help screening the rooms/apartments he was looking for. Obviously, the announcement was bittersweet (I love hanging out with him when he’s home) but I’m so excited for him to be moving out on his own and starting the next chapter…

New Year’s Eve – Here We Go Again

New Year’s Eve – Here We Go Again

  So this will be my first article in a little while, as I allowed my life to be derailed by chaos and catastrophe created by things out of my control. Having had some time to reflect, ponder (cry), and put things back together again in time for Christmas, I have something I’d like to share with all of you. Over the years, the holidays have brought us all great joy, but also, for some, great sadness. My own Grandfather…
