I do have to say that hard times make you stronger. I too have had one interesting and difficult life. It will make you a great mom and a great friend.
I have to laugh at your cheapy ways. I am the same!! I think everything I own came from Target. Sometimes I walk in there and realize that everything I am wearing is from Target, and then I am embarrassed and hurry to leave! You know, one thing though, I have a great sense of style, I think, but sometimes lack the balls to wear something really daring but great. I think I need to remember I am only 24 and not 40. REMEMBER THIS when you are a mommy and all you wear is Tshirts and jeans!! Just say no to hum-drumminess
