Bonnie Rice spent years trying to be the perfect wife and mother, immersed herself in home organization and self-help, hoping that somehow she could have the tidy, quiet, middle-class life that always eluded her.
After nearly twenty years of marriage she finally learned that it wasn't lousy housekeeping that was keeping her in chaos. It was the bipolar disorder that made her husband so critical of her attempts, and kept her walking on eggshells trying to please him.
Stepping gingerly off the eggshells, she has been working on ways to deal with the disorder, keep her identity and dreams alive, and simply please the husband she married who is buried deep beneath the bipolar bear she sometimes lives with.
Not wanting to waste the research, she is making her discoveries available to those who can use them. Enjoy the books--it took a lot of living to write them.

- Making Friends with Money - How to start feeling wealthy without waiting till you're rich
on July 12, 2011
What I like about this book is that it doesn't start with the assumption that all money troubles stem from a lack of self-discipline and can be solved by going on a strict starvation money diet.
I learned that my own tendency to go the "money diet" route with every dime I earn allocated to bills and nothing left for luxuries like food and cleaning supplies, is not the only way to get out of debt.
I learned that a spending plan has room for everything that is important to me and that knowing how I spend my money gives me power. I still don't enjoy working with a spending plan. I want to be independently wealthy and hire an accountant. Still, I am learning to have a healthier relationship with the money that I have.
Thanks for writing this book.
