    First, your link is broken. You have a "t" after the .com.

    Agreed, the writing styles and themes remind me exactly of the Anna Moss stories. Sounds like the same kitten-hating, truck-driving husband too.

    Absolutely, but take it a step further: crunch the numbers and come up with an actionable plan to take control of your debt/finances right now - before you start loading up on debt.

    I've thought about wearing my navy show coat out and I second guessed the idea because it has the double vent when most women's blazers I've seen have a single vent. I don't know if it looks strange....

    OP, I say send the snail mail; what have you got to lose?


    Simultaneously, move on and get over the idea that this horse is The One & Only. There are plenty of others out there.

    I'm in Boston. Yesterday was so nice that I walked around without a coat on. Last night, it looked like 60 - 70% of schools already announced closings for today. Its almost 4:00 now and the ground is...
