Just for You... Reviews by Lissete

There is no other word for it. I have been neglecting this blog. Last time I posted was like 3 weeks ago. Obviously, I would never be able to make money from this blog. I have been busy with FAFSA. Again.

I hate to admit it, but Kari turned out just like her momma. I can figure out commissions in a snap. I can tell you the price of a sale item in a heartbeat. I calculate tips without a cheat cheat. BUT, I HATE ALGEBRA! And unfortunately, it does not come easy for Kari either. That one class brought her GPA down to slightly under 3.0. She has two GPAs a her school. One for requirements and one for her major. The other one is at 3.75. The ever so gracious Bright Futures program only look at one and took away her scholarship. So for the upcoming semester, we'll be lookin for loans. What ticks me off about the whole thing, is that money is free flowing to everyone that knows the system and lies through their teeth. It goes back to what I detest the most, liars and cheats. Especially those liars and cheats that live off my taxes.

Anyhoo, I have the opportunity to take an all expenses paid cruise next week so I am a happy camper. Don't worry, no one's taxes are being used to fund my trip. :-) Wheh we return, I am considering biting the bullet and tryin either Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem. They're both quite $$$ but I do have an empty CC with a very low interest rate, so I might use it for that. Anyone have any experience with either? I know that WW works but I just don't do meetings. I'm thinking maybe 3 months on the $$$ one and then maintain on WW on my own. We'll see.

Saw my cardio this week and he says al looks well. I have a stress test and echo when I get back but only because I haven't done them in over 3 years. My eyes are still bothering me. Oh, and I have to get my ultrasound to check on the cyst. Man, getting old sucks!

Hope all is well with ya'll.

You are so much like me it scares me sometimes! I too am a blog neglector. My oldest breezed through school, but college pre cal got her.

I have never done Jenny Craig or Nutrasystem, (I am trying to lose some on my own), but qvc carries nutrasystem, and they have a great return policy if you hate it.

I went to the eye doc last month for my routine exam and he told me I have glaucoma...waa.

I did a bunch of heart and vascualr testing last winter, ick and cha-ching!

I am with you, getting old sucks. But yet I can't help but embrace it, ever extra day we get is precious :)

Man, I'm so sorry about the Bright Futures thing. I have no idea how that works.

I think you can do WW online without having to go to meetings. If you like it, definitely go online and check it out. I have a friend who did that and lost a lot of weight and is still looking great. I was thinking about doing that to lose my baby weight!
