Virtual G.N.O. - R.I.P. Holden

My first memory of finding a book and devouring it as fast as I could was "The Catcher In The Rye". I was 16. This book wasn't required reading. I can't even remember now why I wanted to read it. All I can remember is that I bought it with my mom on Friday night and started reading it Saturday morning. I stayed in bed until I was through. I've read some amazing stories since that day but this story, on that day will remain the best book adventure I've ever been on. It changed my view and it changed my path. Thank you J.D. Salinger.

Let's embrace all that we love and admire and have a fantastic Virtual Girls Night Out!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.

Addiction is a very real problem all over the world, and in the United States alone there are ever 23 million Americans who are struggling with some sort of addiction. Over 64 percent have had to deal with the emotional aspect of having someone close to them who was battling an addiction.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do.
