From David Loveless – Things He’s Learned

From David Loveless, things he’s learned:

I’ve learned… That under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
 
 I ‘ve learned…. That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.
 
 I’ve learned…. That love, not time, heals all wounds.
 
I’ve learned….. That no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
 
 I’ve learned… That life is tough, but I’m tougher.
 
 I’ve learned…. That opportunities are never lost, someone will take the ones you miss.
 
 I’ve learned…. That when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
 
 I’ve learned…. That I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her one more time before she passed away.
 
 I’ve learned…. That one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
 
 I’ve learned…. That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
 
 I’ve learned…. That when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, that you’re hooked for life.
 
 I’ve
learned…. That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all
the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.
 
 I’ve learned…. That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

Raining Iguanas in South Florida

Apparently our little cold snap is causing iguanas to fall out of trees in South Florida.

O Christmas Tree

If you can tell the age of a tree by counting the rings in it’s trunk, you can tell the age of a fake Christmas tree by counting the layers of tape on the box!

Wii Staged a Coup

Dara got Wii fit and the Wii balance board for Christmas and we made the mistake of temporarily hooking the Wii up to the main TV. Now we’re hooked. We really need a second Wii but that’s not in the budget. So Wii staged a coup and moved the Wii into the BatCave (our media closet) where it will live permanently. Once I ran the Wii sensor cord through the wall, it wasn’t coming out so we’ll need a second set of cables for making the Wii portable but that’s a lot cheaper than a second Wii.

The kids no longer control the Wii, we do!
