My husband and I were shocked when our normal $65 or so water bill jumped up to $205!!!
Obviously we had a leak somewhere.
Only we had no idea where.
We tried to find it on our own.
In such situations...my philosophy is that when I don't know what to do...I do nothing until inspiration strikes.
I searched online and found this company who could easily find the leak for us. We called them...but they were definitely more money than we…

Saturday February 4th was a very interesting day!
I got up very early and went on my computer. Shortly afterward I had a problem getting online. I problem I had to call tech support to fix. I was NOT happy. A little while later I did call...and I talked to someone who gave me a different way to fix this particular problem. A way that I will be able to fix it myself when it happens in the future.
Later that day I was listening to my MP3 player. And suddenly it…

This morning a number of little contrast-y things kept happening. And I kept shrugging them off.
And then I was looking for a book that I wanted to read. I looked...and couldn't find it. I kept looking. And...there...all of a sudden...in one of my bookcases...were ALL of the yearbooks that I have been wanting to find for so long!!!
I swear they weren't there before!!! (I bet hubby rearranged a few things and put them there...not realizing the significance of them) …
After a few months of feeling good when I listened to negative music...inspiration struck again!!!
How about finding songs that reflect each of the emotions on The Emotional Guidance Scale...listen to them from the bottom to the top...and go up the Emotional Scale that way???
And so...I've spent a lot of time recently doing just that!! :) Now it's definitely not an exact science. LOL There are some songs it's hard to tell exactly which emotion that they go…Continue

I wrote a story recently that is my new favorite story!!! Oh how VERY cool this would be!!! :)
I got into this wonderful room that holds all my memories from my past...as well as any and all sentimental items from my past. I go in and pick up my Rubik's Cube. I make a checkerboard design on it and put it down. I see Wicket sitting on a rocking chair....and with a glad cry I pick him up...sit down...and hold him while rocking. I squeeze him tightly...oh how much I love…
I have loved music for as long as I can remember.
But ever since learning about the Law of Attraction...I've been pretty leery of sad or otherwise negative music.
I just haven't wanted to put any more negativity out there than I can help!!!
But a couple of months ago...inspiration struck!! :)
You see...I frequently feel depressed. No matter how hard I try not to be...it's frequently there like a low-grade fever. Oh I can be happy for a short time. And…
Lately a lot of times when I'm down I'm not feeling the love. And one of the things that would comfort me in such times is to feel the love! It simply does not help that I know that I am too far down the emotional scale to feel the love from the Universe and my IB. And only makes me feel worse.
However...maybe next time I feel that way...I will try to simply remember that it's there...even if I can't feel it...and see if that helps any!
Recently I started seeing the expansion that contrast has brought into my life.
A friend asked me a favor. As this friend rarely asks me for favors I wanted to say yes. However I was not comfortable with doing what he asked. But a few weeks later I figure out a way to do the favor...and be comfortable at the same time. So I let my friend know. And...get this...he says never mind...I had no right to ask for that!!! But it was too late...I'm now going to do what he asked...only…Continue

For over the past month my best friend has not been speaking to me.
I had gotten upset with her...said a few things I shouldn't have...and except for a one line email...she hasn't communicated with me since.
It's a situation that hurts quite a bit. But even so...I do see quite a bit of expansion come out of it. Let me explain...I've discovered writing "love letters" (the ones John Gray talks about in "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus)..and even more…Continue

I have recently come to understand one very important advantage to living in Florida.
You can get Vitamin D from sunshine in Florida all year round.
This is not so in places like Ohio.
(no--LOL--Ohio isn't random. It's where I'm from--and where both of my sisters live)
Now I know that Florida isn't the only state that you can get Vitamin D from sunshine all year round. Nor is Ohio the only state where you cannot. However I do not have any sort of list in…

You know this has come up at least a few times in my never-ending Abe reading.
But the meaning never really hit me until yesterday.
Well--LOL--actually the event happened yesterday--it didn't actually hit me until today!! (Oct 27th, 2009)
Let me explain.
My husband took it upon himself to apply for food stamps.
And it looks like we will soon be getting a nice amount of food stamps every month!!
And it was even without too much effort on…

"Opportunities don't knock only once--but again and again and again. They kiss me right on the end of my nose."
This quote always makes me smile.
And I'm sure that it's true about a lot of things. But not everything. Some opportunities have deadlines...and then are gone.
"You have never--not for one moment--been off your path. And you have no reason whatsoever to feel any embarrassment or discomfort about where you are at this stage in your life. You are powerfully on your path. And you are just beginning the best part of your life."
The above is written in one of my favorite tablets. It's where I wrote down tons of Abe quotes. (well it's mostly Abe quotes!) And I've used it so much--that it's falling apart!!
Anyway--this quote REALLY…
Okay...I've been having problems with a friend. I tried to call her on her cell phone last night...and was told that the voice mail at this number was not set up yet. Now keep in mind that she's had voice mail since before we reconnected back in February of this year!!!
This was a very unexpected development. And it makes me wonder if she is getting a new cell phone...or somehow disengaged her voice mail simply to avoid the few voice mails I leave her a week!! Yes I…Continue
