This weekend is all about getting back on the bus. We picked this quote from smallcitybeth, since we think it's an honest example of how the Cure works for most people. Things might not fall into place right away, but you gotta stick with it. The pay-off when you have a party with your friends in a happier, healthier home is worth it! Plus, with our awesome group, we've got a whole lot of help to see us through to the end. Next week we're in for some retail therapy, so get ready for one of the really fun parts of the Cure.
