HORSE PILLS

When I was younger, I developed terrible eczema on my hands, arms and in some parts of my scalp.  It was like every mechanism in my body was just out of control and raging.  In order to get things back in order, my dermatologist gave me a host of medicines to take.  Creams, lotions, scalp…

JUNK REMOVAL

When I bought my home seven years ago, I had one main underlying thought during the entire process:  when and how did I accumulate so much junk? I had been living in a generously spaced two-bedroom apartment, and was quite content.  Perhaps that spirit of contentment was why I had not taken mental note of…
