Wow.. what a task to account for almost a week and a half of no updates! Chalk up an extra $1.73 in change found in a variety of spots. Hopefully I'll be more descriptive at some other point.. my mind is consumed with HOUSECALLS right now (my current manuscript).

Hey Billy- miss ya bud. Hopefully Florida will yield much more success for you than Staten Island did! Cheers.

Total today: $1.73

Total thus far: $218.49

Chalk up another $0.65 for the changepot. Not up for typing much. My tooth is killing me. Hopefully this man will make some magic at the stadium tonight. I just LOOOVE my yankees!!

Check this forward out:

The philosophy of charles schultz

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners. Here's another quiz.

See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care. Charles Schultz was a wise man.

The little bug Kitty caught in school spread like wildfire in my house- making it near impossible to go out on our daily routines. Earlier during the week, Sandy found a quarter, Hubby found a quarter and a nickel while on a gatorade run (we were all quite dehydrated), and the pennies just keep coming along (ten in all).

I have developed a serious addiction to Tangy Twister Mike and Ike candies (pictured above). While I'm sure it will do some sort of damage to my assorted fillings and cavity ridden teeth, the sour yummies are too hard to resist! Even in my sickness and against my better judgement, I shamefully indulged.

Total found: $0.65
Total thus far: $215.85

Chalk up $0.34 for the changepot. Hubby found a cache of pennies at the handball courts and I found two dimes on the way home from the gym. On an unrelated note, I found out a friend of mine is a part-timer and will no longer be working close by. Oh well- there goes the neighborhood.

Total found: $0.34
