    Thanks CJ. I already do alot of the things listed here. I am printing it out on some pretty paper and framing this one. I have to find a special place to put it for everyone in the house to see as a gentle reminder. Sometimes life just gets too darn hectic around here

    Lynn I know what you mean.

    Dh read this and decided that although he was really good at some of the things, he needed to work on a few other things. Were doing this together.

    Our life is out of control right now due to circumstances beyond our control so were looking at doing fun things to relieve the stress.
