I received some backlash from yesterdays post, well the second post anyway. (Did anyone even see the first?) I have dealt with those people privately and everything is fine now. I still stand by every word I wrote. Moreover, I feel good about it too. It is not good just to hold stuff in all the time.
Today, well I am at work. July is our slowest time. We are having everyone do a full inventory here and it is hot outside in the warehouse so no one is too happy about that. We are also weighing and measuring every box so we can better understand our freight costs. Oh, yes, such fun… counting baskets and doing math. I hate math, but the math classes have helped and Excel is the best program ever made. However, my boss, who is a math whiz, and will probably find the serious amount of math fun.
I have a sinus infection. I went home early yesterday (just in time for all that stuff. WOO!) and I am feeling better today. That may have been one of the causes of my angry blogging, but what can you do? My friend Heather sent me an e-mail today about getting free stuff from Victoria’s Secret. It worked too. Heather did it, I did it, Trish did it, and I think my Aunt Christine is doing it. If I did not send that to you and you want in on the secret, send me an email. I am not posting it here.
Tonight we are making those Rachel Ray chicken tender’s I wrote about last week. Carolynn just loved them. I thought they were yummy too.
I got this email from my friend Cari today and I thought we could use a little of this considering… So here. Enjoy.
LESSONS IN LIFE
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
15. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
16. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
17. Over-prepare, then go with the flow.

33. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
34. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
