Her Morning Elegance

Ever since Courtney showed me this music video I have been obsessed with it. Why didn't I think of this idea first?! Thanks for showing this to me Court! It's AWESOME!

Check your child's homework!

Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it. Sarah's picture does NOT show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Mrs. Smith

Foggy Friday

Driving home from work on the freeway, I see a caution sign that says "Caution: Fog ahead. 2 Miles."

I've seen these warnings before and it usually turns out to be nothing. To my pleasant surprise... it was thick fog! Even though I sometimes start to feel a little claustrophobic, I still love the fog! Why can't it be foggy more often??

Reading more

So one of my goals for 2009 is to read more. I need suggestions for good books to read. I want to read at least 1 book per month. Not a huge goal, but it's better than nothing!

This month, I have been reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I'm almost done. It's a very interesting book. I have really liked it. Especially shooting down the theory of "If you go to college and get good grades, you'll get a good job and be secure." I'm not saying education is not important, because it is. I just think the whole idea of having to have a degree to get anywhere in life is not really true.

Next month, I'm planning on reading Force of Nature, by Laird Hamilton.

"Laird Hamilton has been hailed as the world's greatest big-wave surfer. His first book, Force of Nature, allows readers a rare glimpse inside the unique philosophy that has created his circumstances, and not the other way around. After all, this is a man whose biological father abandoned him shortly after he was born; whose first job was working on a pig farm; who dropped out of school in eleventh grade. And then the career decision: surfer. Though earning enough to pay the rent as any kind of surfer is next to impossible, Hamilton has ended up in the place we all desire to be: doing exactly what he loves, becoming the world's best in the process, making a great living, being surrounded by nature and family, radiating peak health and fitness, and succeeding by any definition of the word. How did he get there? And more importantly, how can the rest of us join him? Force of Nature is a detailed map to that destination, with Laird Hamilton as the reader's guide. This book is a deeply authoritative and cutting-edge guide to peak fitness in mind, body, sould, and surfing."

Other books I'm planning on reading are: 4-Hour Workweek, and I want to read The Secret again.

If you have any suggestions for a good book, let me know!
