Locked Out

Yesterday, I was getting ready to go to the bank and the mailbox, but I couldn't
get in my car. My 11 year old son had put paperclips in both of my car door
locks. I cried. I yelled. I sat in silence for about an hour, then I finally got it

A few hours later, after my sister got home from work, I walked to her house to
borrow her car. I got to mail my bills (yeah!), but the bank had already closed.

My sister told my parents what had happened, so they came over this morning.
I told my father he was wasting his time, but he had gotten into the car in
about 15 minutes. I was surprised and relieved. He believed he could do it...
and he did.

Being Taken Advantage Of ?

I think if you feel like you're being taken advantage of you probably are. People will
continue to take advantage of you as long as you let them. You have to have enough
confidence to speak up and change the situation.

You're being taken advantage of if people you know...


1.  Only show up at suppertime.

2.  Borrow a lot of your stuff, so they won't have to buy their own.

3.  Drop their kids off at your house, and leave without asking if it's OK.

4.  Constantly bum gum, nasty cigarettes, money, etc.

5.  Call you only when they need something because they know you won't say no.

Being taken advantage of ?

Why I Keep a Journal

I've kept a journal since I was 10 years old. I originally wrote down all of my
"deep dark secrets", but I don't do that anymore. I feel better after writing in
my journal. Mead notebooks make good journals, because they hold up well.

The type of information I like to write down is:
  • Where I went
  • Where I need to go
  • Where I want to go
  • What I cooked
  • Who I saw
  • What I bought
  • Whether I'm happy or sad
  • Who came over
  • Who called

Awkward Etiquette

How many times have you been in an awkward situation and you didn't know
what to do or say? This is my version of awkward etiquette.

Speak up if someone...

 1. Has something in their teeth or something hanging out of their nose.
     You know you would want somebody to tell you!

 2. Has their tag sticking out of the top of their shirt.
     Just tell the person.

 3. Owes you money.
     If you don't speak up you may never get paid back.

Don't say a word if someone...

1. Has flatulence. 
    If you just walked into the room just walk out (if you can), but if you can't,
    go to the other side of the room.

2. Has body odor (unless you know for a fact that they haven't heard of
    Chances are this person knows that they smell. They either don't care, or 
    they just haven't found a deodorant that works for them.

3. You don't know well is bending over and you can see their butt-crack
    or their thong.
    Just look away.

Beware of the Dream Crashers

I'm here to tell you to beware of the Dream Crashers. These are people who tell
you that... "Your dream will never happen."  "That is impossible."  "Try something
else." "You can't do that."

When I was 15, I wanted to be a model, but at the time I had a space between my
two front teeth. I was told to get my teeth fixed first. After that I tried to put model-
ing out of my head, so my modeling dream didn't happen. 

My husband wanted to be a graphic designer when he was in high school. "Graphic
design isn't for you," his teacher said. He's trying to get into it now, but it has taken
him almost 20 years to do so.

Everybody has a dream. Follow your dream and don't let any Dream Crashers get
your the way.

Follow your dream.
