Common courtesy seems to be something of our past.

People have allowed common courtesy to go out the window, with the advent of the belief that “I’m more important than you are”,

Things like young people not standing up on a bus to allow the aged to sit down, to driving down the freeway and being cut off by someone who absolutely must be in front of you just in case they can get to where they are going a few seconds faster.

Ever sit at a traffic light and have someone’s car thumping so loud from a sub woofer that your car shakes? They too must be much more important that you since they feel you need to listen to their music.  Oh and my favorite the people who stand there engaging in a cell phone call talking so loudly that you can hear everything they are talking about, from ex’s to sex and so on.  People we don’t want to hear your calls, that’s your business not ours.

If we all actually took a step back and thought about how our actions effect others we’d remind ourselves that common courtesy isn’t something we should let go by the way side. Take a moment to think about what you do and how it affects those around you.  Being courteous takes so little effort, so give it a try!

Have a great day!

Lazy Sunday

There are just times when you have to enjoy a lazy Sunday.  Today was one of those for the kids and I.Â

It started off with Ace trying to wake me at 5am, for some reason he hasn’t figured out that on Saturday and Sunday, he doesn’t need to wake me up for work, after snuggling with him for a bit he wandered off to play with Cera and Tori leaving me to snuggle back under the sheets and catch a few more winks until he decided it was time for Mom to get up.

Getting up at 9am is a luxury that I am rarely allowed, having no real drive this morning I flipped on the television, only to watch the various infomercials for products that I’m sure I can’t live without.  Finally the drive of needing something to eat drove me to the kitchen for that big bowl of frosted cheerios and soy milk.I noticed that while I was enjoying my breakfast that Ace was sprawled out, sleeping on the chair my parents brought down on their recent visit, seemingly exhausted at his job of waking me from my deep slumber.Â

I finally watched The Transformers, a movie I had bought a while ago and never quite found time to watch. I was surprised to find that I liked it.  It was just what I needed to start my morning off, a good shoot them up action adventure.Â

I finally at 3pm caught a nice hot shower and I think it’s time to put a London broil on for dinner tonight.

Lazy Sundays aren’t an every weekend thing, but I sure do enjoy them when I slow down long enough.

Enjoy what is left of your Sunday, lazy or not!

Little things in life do add up!

I have this one gallon apple juice jar that I save spare changed in, except for quarters since our washing machines and driers only take those.Â

In the course of a 3 month period, I sock away all my pennies, nickels and dimes. When the jar is about ½ full, I sit down, wrap them all and without a doubt I’m shocked at how much money is there.  The last time I had about forty dollars.

I add this bit of money to my stash for buying my favorite stocks, bonds and mutual funds when the market is low.  I enjoy watching these little purchases I make add up.  It’s amazing that just the little action of saving your change can result in a large nest egg over the long haul.

My mom once said that it’s the little things you do in life that add up, and I have to agree she’s right.

Have a marvelous weekend!
