About Me

Due to childhood illness, Laura Hudson has been completely bald since she was nine years old. Laura's hair loss is due to Alopecia Universalis, an auto-immune disorder for which there is no cure.

Laura says, "I would have given anything to have someone tell me they understood what I was going through, that it was OK to be different, that if I just hung in there and was strong I would be victorious. It would have made all the difference in the world. I could have been spared so many doubts, questions and fears. Since I didn't have that person, I want to be that person."

Laura Hudson is a motivational speaker and the Marketing Director for Aviv Moon Productions.

How I lost an entire afternoon!

So, I am terrified of Dentists. I mean TERRIFIED! A bad experience as a teenager scarred me for life. So, I had to have 3 wisdom teeth and one molar pulled. I figured sedation was the way to go. One major problem, I didn't get loopy until the procedure was finished.

I was however, "relaxed" enough to not be anxious so I didn't flip out or anything. I remember the entire thing - 4 teeth out and 2 teeth repaired. I don't know what is happening to my teeth. I've always had great strong teeth but about 7 years ago - that all changed. I have no idea why though. Of course, my back started bothering me then too so who knows. Oops, I am rambling. Back to losing a whole afternoon.

Like I said, I was awake through the entire procedure. I remember talking to the nurse and telling them goodbye. I remember them telling me to call after a couple of days to check in and that I could have my cleaning done in about 2 weeks. That's where I draw a complete blank.

I don't remember getting into my inlaw's car. I don't remember walking up the steps. Although, my husband says I tried to going to the laundry room to sleep. I don't remember laying down. All I know is that hours later, I woke up with "The Secret Life of Bees" DVD still on the menu screen and me thinking I needed to pick up the boys from school.

This was at 4pm. I was put under at 9:50am. Fortunately, my inlaws picked up the boys and took all the kids out for dinner. How can you lose an entire day? I don't know but the sleep sure was nice!

Bargain Ladies?

Do I have any bargain ladies out there? Honestly, I get so tired of finding a great bargain hunting site to find out that I have to pay something to be on it. I figure - "hey, I'm already looking this stuff up so I might as well share it!"

Being that I have so many kids that I don't know what to do - I am constantly aware of savings opportunities. So I set up a gmail account for this purpose. If you want to subscribe to my bargain email list, just send an email to bargainladies@gmail.com with the subject line "Subscribe." I'll send weekly emails with the occasion Savings alert when I find something that can't wait for the weekly update.

I guess I'll send the 1st one out on Friday.

E Ya Later Bargain Ladies!!!
