Philosophy Friday


I start back to physical therapy for my back next Tuesday
My house is (mostly) clean and the laundry is (mostly) done
I went to a really inspiring sales training last night
I've gotten very positive feedback on the ASOM site

"she made it to that mountain peak that had seemed so far away! she leaped, danced and rejoiced! and then, quietly, holding a pebble from that sacred spot, she took her first step towards the rest of the mountain range" terri,

(Take a moment to check out the website. terri has some beautiful poetry and I feel better everytime I read her work)

A Great Trip for a Good Cause

Brenda Novak's Third Annual On-line Auction for Diabetes Research is in the planning stages. In 2005, the auction raised $34,982. In 2006, $62,706. That brought donations almost to $100,000! In 2007, Brenda is hoping to raise even more money for research. Help make it happen just by going shopping during the month of May (The auction works just like E-Bay).

Here's my donation:
"LAS VEGAS, BABY! To celebrate the October 2007 release of her first single title, best-selling author Mia Zachary is donating an autographed copy of her romantic mystery, ANOTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT, for you to read on the plane to Sin City.

Once you get there, she'll treat you to two nights at the Luxor and one of the hottest shows in town (choice of Lance Burton, Danny Gans, The Blueman Group or La Reve), as well as providing two books to help you enjoy your stay: The Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide to Las Vegas and 1000 Best Casino Gambling Secrets."

(Does not include travel to and from Las Vegas. Also, you must use the trip between Oct 1, 2007 and Mar 31, 2008; the room is subject to the hotel's availability and the show tickets are subject to theater blackout dates and dark nights.) Value $450"

Philosophy Friday


I twisted my back but the pain is much less today
I got my hair done yesterday and today I'm goiong to the nail salon
Two new people want to schedule jewelry shows with me
I got back to ASOM and started editing today
