Living Without Power
Thursday, January 21, 2010      4 comments

You never realize how much you take power for granted until it is gone. The storms caused a major outage today closing my class early. When I got home I had to set up flashlights, lanterns, and candles and get everything in a place I could find ... Read more

Failures can be successes
Saturday, January 16, 2010      1 comments

Failures are what we make them. I look at my 2009 and see that I did not come anywhere near meeting my goals. But then I see how good I am doing in 2010 and realize that I was internalizing what I needed to know to be a success--and also finding... Read more

Thursday, January 14, 2010      6 comments
