Handbook for 2009

This was posted on a message board I belong too. Great words to live by!

Handbook for 2009

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E’s—Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5. Make time for prayer.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile.

11. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment....
13. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip...
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.
28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

Last but not the least:
40. Give a copy of this to everyone you care about.

B's graduation

It's been a week since Brogan graduated Kindergarten. He was so excited and proud of himself. I can't believe he's about to be a first grader. :( Where does the time go? Even my baby baby, Caitlyn, will be in Pre-K this fall. Kids grow up way too fast.

no news really

In Sept, a "bff" of mine is getting married. Not only am I her Matron of Honor, but I'm making her cake as well! I must admit I'm super stoked about it. Kell and the kids will be going with me to Pittsburgh for the wedding. It will be a fun vacation.

Other than this upcoming cake, I have no other cake news to report. I've taken a short hiatis from the cake making. I got so busy with the move. Now that that's over with, I'm just uncomfy and too close to the end of my pregnancy to even be thinking about cakes. Afterall I'm busy baking my own little cupcake to think about other forms of cake. unless I'm eating it of course haha....

Speaking of my little cupcake...I now have 4 weeks left....30 days until the due date. which means crunch time. I have 3 nursing covers I need to make for myself. Yes technically I only need one but I fell in love with fabric..sue me. I better get on that because she'll be here before I know it.
