Just stop......take a DEEP breath......then grab a piece of paper and a pen.....make a list of things you ACTUALLY NEED......then make a list of all the ridiculous pointless crap that only clutters your mind and your life.....to quote Brad Pitt from the movie Fight Club - "the things you own end up owning you" - we all need money to survive, but your life shouldn't revolve around obtaining it.......hope this was at least KINDA helpful......8)

Well... What he said. ^. But you should also keep in mind that money can't give you everything. Happiness? health? Not entirely. Instead of using our money on a bunch of clothing save it. Uh, so yeah. What he said. I hope that made sense -_-

Ask your self what would be important to you if you only had one month left to live. I seriously doubt that money would be at the top of the list. Take a step back and look at your life. Is money helping or hurting you? Are you taking time away from things that would be at the top of the list to make money? Now remember that life is very fragile and at any time yours could end. Does that give you a little better perspective?

I don't have a face book....... I know everyone keeps telling me to get one but it's just another thing to keep me from doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Ask is a big enough distraction..... Irish soda bread is the BEST!!!!! When we went to Ireland they had a village that you toured that was set back in the 1800's. One of the ladies was making soda bread in the fire place with home made butter. It was amazing.... I didn't want to move on to the next house. You really should become a chef. You love to cook and the things you make sound amazing. Just one question, Who in the heck got up at 3am to start the briskets???? I don't know if I'm that dedicated??? Oh... and if I got on a plane in the next couple of hours do you think I would make it on time for dinner????

I haven't seen part two but I loved part one so I'm going to have to check it out. I sounds like you and your sister are really close. You seem a lot happier there. I'm really close with my brother and especially my sister in law. They live about 1/4 mile from me so we see each other almost every day.
