Big Y app has FREE Hazelnut M&Ms.  Just download the coupon and you will get your free hazelnut M&M’s at your local Big Y.  Just a confession I don’t like hazelnut so I may not like these M&M’s but since it’s free, I will at least try them!

If you do not have a Big Y app just download it!

They should be in the checkout aisel but if they are not just asked a grocery clerk.

I love free!!!

Today’s forecast is Sunny – even though it’s cloudy out

Today is Sunny even though there are clouds outside. Thanks, everyone for the thoughtful words and verses!

I know I need to keep moving and doing things – and not give up on this life!  Jasmine is such a great reminder of that since she will play will her ball anytime I want to.  She’s a little obsessive about it!

Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5b

Huntington’s Disease

I was told a couple of weeks ago that Huntington’s symptoms have started. I have a CAG of 43 and really never thought I would start having symptoms.  I have such a severe case of fibromyalgia I thought Jesus would spare me from the symptoms of Huntington’s. I also have severe sinus infections that last for months. I can’t take any antibiotics so I just suffer.

Huntington’s is a mix of Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons and schizophrenia.  Symptoms show up differently with each person.  The person could have live 12 or more years after the symptoms start.

I decided to keep going to school and use the rest of my GI Bill when I got a professor who gave me a 38 out of 200 points on an assignment. I couldn’t believe it!  I mean I know my writing is not the best which is why I hesitated writing a blog. I dropped the class which was a cost to me.  I’m not even sure I want to take another class.  I feel the classes stress me out so much because I never know how the professor is going to grade.

I’m feeling lost.  I don’t ever want to blog or do anything.

I know Jesus has a plan I’m just not sure what it is.

Big Y app – FREE M&M Tablet bar

Big Y has an app that is great and easy to use! The easiest to get the app is to download the Big Y app on your phone. Then create a digital account using your last name and Big Y card number. If you do not have a Big Y card then you can sign up for the account on the app too.

You can also sign up using their website right below.

The M&M Tablet bar is free without any other coupons needed. Just put the digital coupon on the card.

I just wanted to try and see if the overages would go to the other my final bill and it did!  Today I bought 5 items for 1.03 at Big Y!

I am able to use clipped coupons that I found online at and coupons on the app! Any overages are used toward the rest of the bill.

Hint before they start ringing hand them the card on the app.



Thanks to ppp at  and

Dunkin Donuts Black Friday

I can not believe this week is Thanksgiving and Black Friday! This year has gone by so fast!  I am so Thankful that God has never left my side and continues to bless my life each and every day!  I wanted to do 30 days of thankfulness but only made it to 17. It does not mean I don’t have more than 17 things to be thankful for but it does mean some other things took over – which is ok!

Be careful when shopping Black Friday – they can put items out that seems like an amazing deal but then the product does not work! Which defeats the purpose of a good deal!!  I have this problem because I love saving money! It is a great time of year to try an item that is on sale then return if it does not work like you thought.

Kohls is live which most of their Black Friday sales. I just bought a vacuum I needed since my other one broke! Be careful using their Kohls cash that you “earn” by spending money. If you return any item after using Kohls cash that will be subtracted from the refund. That’s why I don’t use the Kohls cash anymore. I have a year to return an item if it was purchased on the Kohls card.

Dunkin Donuts – dd (which is changing their name to Dunkin – why?  That’s for another blog), has a .50 espresso deal for Black Friday only!  Since each Dunkin donuts is a franchised ask if your Dunkin Donuts is having the same deal!  Then get your energy on!

I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving and an amazing Black Friday!  Be kind to everyone around you since you have no idea what is going on in their life! A nice smile when someone is mean goes a long way when dealing long days!
