    I love the wig I always wanted to be blonde.it is such a diffucult thing to go thru.my mom had non Hodgekins lymphoma stage 4 I went to all of her chemo appointments went to help her choose her wig we tried to make it fun we put on different colors and styles and laughed at how some of them looked. When her eyebrows feel out and her lashes we played with makeup. She has been clean for 4 years now so keep good and positive spirits because it really helps. I have been clean for 17 years I had a partial masectomy so there are many survivors and she will be one too.

    That way I can use amail merege and print out my labels.
    When the request is packaged and mailed I delete it from the sticky note. It pops up everymorning and reminds me what I have to work on.

    I like that idea! But I hate to write, I would rather type! So I have my in an excel spreadsheet. Plus doing it this way I can cheat with cut/copy/paste. It's saved on my desktop so I dont have to search for it. I only misplace the printed copy! LOL I need a bullentin board I like that idea!
    Maybe I sure put calendar on my desktop for it to pop up and tell what needs to be done, but my swaps might be few and inbetween, just found out my unemployement benfits have run out and no more weekly checks, now what will I do to keep from being bored...LOL Now I'm applying for SSI but sure I will be turned down, since I can't do the job any more..And its hard for me to do anything else with my lower back disablility and find it hard for someone to give me sit down, stand up, no walking to long job pretty much sums it up don't ya think.......
    My mom is currently working on getting SSI for her back problems as well. She can't sit or stand or walk for long either. She has been denied twice for her claims and is now in works with a lawyer to get hers. My aunt is the same, being denied twice and now has a lawyer helping out as well. Mines a bit different because I was injured in the military so I get disability though them, so it was a bit easier. But good luck on yours.

    Not sure if some of what I got will be worth working with afraid it may break alot since I don't know how old it really is. The cones that were wrapped went for .25 & .50 cents. Alot of great colors. I ended up spending $7.00 dollars and got a ton of thread & a box full of notions. I even managed to find a brand new Janome ruffler still in the sealed package. Luv that find!
    Depends on what they're made of. Cotton needs to be used soonest, along with rayon, polyester lasts a long,long time.
