When your a young couple expecting your first baby, your life looking forward will be filled with many decisions, important decisions to be made.
You never think your ready, but somehow most of us "man-up" and thrive on the new challenges ahead.
Here's a rule I would like to institute.
If you and your wife spend all the time required looking through all the "Baby Names" books, and you can't decide on a name, so you go to a social networking website and ask people you don't know to suggest names for your baby and you plan on picking a winner, and naming your baby something someone you don't know suggested, THAN YOU SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO HAVE A BABY!
Of all the decisions these parents will have to make, the easiest is probably picking a name.
I read a story tonight, the subject matter being glass half full or half empty.
Any time I hear that phrase, it reminds me of my wife. She is a glass half full person.
About 10 years ago, while on a boat in a Louisiana ship yard, for reasons I won't go into here, I packed up my stuff and walked off the boat. Quit. I don't recommend this.
I went to a hotel, booked a flight for the next morning to my home. While at the airport that morning, I called my wife, told her I was at the airport about to fly home, and explained the disagreement I had with one of my superiors, and told her I had just quit.
There was a a pause, and then she said, "Well, we'll look at this situation as an adventure."
Yeah, she's a glass half full kind of girl.
Update: I was hired back 2 days later, the gentlemen who was treating our crew no better than dogs in a kennel is no longer with us.
Am I the only one who is not surprised that Labron James and his Miami teammates have the cohesion of a playground pickup team?
A true team consists of much more than sticking 3 high scoring, pampered,spoiled players together.
Labron spoke of winning 6 Championships while in Miami before he ever scored one point.
Their record now is 9 and 8. They stink.
Why am I finding great joy in watching this overconfident team melt down.
I don't know, but it sure has been entertaining.
