It used to be impossible to get Eric to go get a haircut. Now I just say, "You can drive there," and off we go!
The book I'm reading right now - GOOD MORNING - is a positive affirmation book. I like this one: "Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are" (Bernice Johnson Reagan). Positive affirmation: "I grow in positive ways from each challenge I face in life." The book is by Brook Noel. I've always remembered this saying too: "Every ending is just a beginning in disguise." Just when you think God has closed a door, another one opens. :) Trust Him.
If you want to let the world know what is the greatest gift your mother gave you, go to http://www.realsimple.com/yourwords and you can win a copy of the book Real Simple Cleaning. (I know, huh...you've been just dying for a copy.)
Also, check out this website: http://www.blockshoppers.com/ If you click on your city and do search properties by zip code, enter zip and then go to your street name in that zip code, it shows your entire street, who owns what house (by name) and how much it last sold for. Really interesting.
Click on this link below for the most amazing animal story. You may have seen it on the Internet...about the rat who rides on the cat who rides on the dog. You don't have to watch it for long; just take a gander at the unusual trio. Never seen anything like it. (No commercials or anything, it goes right into the story) http://www.youtube.com/swf/l.swf?swf=http%3A//s.ytimg.com/yt/swf/cps-vfl78056.swf&video_id=D85yrIgA4Nk&rel=1&eurl=http%3A//us.mc381.mail.yahoo.com/mc/showMessage%3Ffid%3DInbox%26sort%3Ddate%26order%3Ddown%26startMid%3D0%26.rand%3D444498293%26&iurl=http%3A//i1.ytimg.com/vi/D85yrIgA4Nk/hqdefault.jpg&sk=420KoiFjLAM_puc05i29x496uoWuCixYC&use_get_video_info=1&load_modules=1&cr=US&title=Dog%2C%20Cat%2C%20and%20Rat&avg_rating=4.87314141095&length_seconds=167
