Huddle with all of your teams every day. It will serve the same purpose as a Huddle in Football. By the time you have gone to each team you will have read/ and heard in you head Go Team! Woo Hoo!

Both My husband and I enjoy cooking. We love to use fresh parsley. I buy it by the bunch at the Grocery store during the times when my garden isn't producing any.

I know this sounds crazy but..if you have medicine you are suppose to take every day..actually take it. You'll feel better. If you do it at the same times every day it is easier to remember.

I have in the past 3 years used more product Warranty's than ever before. In the case of my dishwasher I was able, by having my receipt handy, to show the authorized repair man the date that I had purchased the machine. The new motor it needed was covered and we just paid labor costs.
I walk a lot, both the treadmill and outside. Sometimes I even run. I often have places where my shoes rub on my feet, not enough for a blister,still annoying. I now use Dr. Scholl's Moleskin. It can be cut to any size I want and is very sticky so it stays in place and protects that raw spot so
I make Oatmeal every morning. I use the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats but I still microwave it. I use 1/2 cup Oats and 1 cup water and cook for 2 minutes. I have a canister that I store the Oatmeal in and I also keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in there too..makes preparing it that much quicker.
