Mimi Trivia

July 14 was my mom's 65th birthday. She spent her birthday in Alabama with my sister so we couldn't throw her a party on her birthdya so her party was last Sunday. I had decorated everything with Eeyore, we ate ice cream sundaes and played a Winnie the Pooh match game that I had bought. Me, James & Ashley were playing the match game having a great ole time when Becky said, "I made up a game, can we play it next?" we all said sure and that is when MIMI TRIVIA was born. Becky made up all but two of the questions and typed them on her DS. I pulled the laptop out so I could type all the questions becuase I saw MIMI TRIVIA making it to a scrapbook page in the near future. I never knew how competitive my brother was until this and I never knew how observant Becky is. She is truly a remarkable little girl (although she really isn't a little girl anymore). Here is MIMI TRIVIA as typed by Aunt Sam on July 27, 2008.

24 things to do everyday

Got this in an email from a friend of mine and instead of forwarding it I thought it would make a great post! Have a GREAT weekend!

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.
3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today. I am thankful for______________'
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli , almonds & walnuts.
6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'
17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!
22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________.
Today I accomplished _________.
24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

a weird day

Today was weird. Most of my days aren't normal, but today was unusually strange. I didn't take my lunch to work today because I was going to go to Best Buy and then pick something up. Well, Donna asked if we were going anywhere for lunch so I said we could ask around and see if anyone wanted to go. I asked around and the normal lunch crew wanted to go. Martha & Joe had planned to go to El Chico because they had a coupon so we all decided we would tag along. So... a pea lunch is created. Normally we plan lunches days in advance so it was weird that none of us brought our lunch. I had to be Tom this morning but right as we were getting ready to leave Tom shows up from jury duty. I was super excited so he finished up the PDFs. It is now time for lunch. Martha, Joe, Donna and I all ride in the Peamobile because Ashley and Jennifer are going to stop and pick up the other Ashley. We get to El Chico and they aren't busy so we get a table really quick (which is weird with a group of 7). Then the fun begins. We had the SLOWEST waitress know to man. She was slow taking the drink order, slow getting our drinks, slow taking our order... then we sit there... no chips and empty drinks for 45 minutes... we FINALLY get our food. I ordered fajitas but had no tortillas and that took another year to get. So we all eat... ask for our checks... 10 minutes later we get our check but she didn't split it... 10 minutes later she brings our checks and we give her cards and cash... 10 minutes later a random guy brings our table some cash but it was change for the wrong tickets... after we ask for the manager we get our cards back. Almost everyone of the tickets were wrong. So at 1 pm we leave El Chico - we got there at 11:35. Donna, Joe, Martha & I walk into the office building with the door propped open. THE POWER IS OUT. it is dark and spooky and scary. The power is out so we can't clock in. Ashley & I get to our desk and realize we aren't on the back-up so we have no computers. The power went out at 12:40. So everyone is sitting around trying to figure out things to do. At around 2:15 a lady came around saying that our CEO was sending us home if we didn't have a computer to work on. At 2:20 the power came back on. I was glad I didn't go home. I went to Tom's desk to get to work on the PDFs and at 2:22 Tom shows up. He was dismissed from jury duty. I decided to go out to the Celebrate Cooking photo shoot and it was a complete bore. It was kinda like you just sit around and wait. I watched two super simple shots and then it was going to be another hour before the next shot was going to be ready so I went back to the office. It is really sad when a photo shoot is so boring that you would rather be at the office. I read the recent issue of Communication Arts and then it was time to go home... I have played around on Facebook and iTunes and now it is time for dinner... wonder what other weird things are going to happen...
