Jupiter High School 20 year Reunion Okay, so here is where I totally date myself by announcing that I am attending my 20th year reunion. I can't believe it either. I think back to all the fun times I had in high school and I can actually remember them better than what I did yesterday. I guess my long term memory if much better than my short term memory. I can remember rides in golf carts that we were not supposed to take, gates we weren't supposed to open, breakfast we at Jim's , classes we … [Read more...]

You determine how to react to your environment based on these determinations. I am going to ask you today to suspend all judgments. … [Read more...]

I have to say that the job board was created to help others. I … [Read more...]

Coaching: The season is over and we won

I can't imagine how the season came and went so fast. I started coaching basketball with a limited amount of basketball knowledge. It was actually a fluke that we became the coaches. I was the head coach and my husband the assistant. I was very surprised that my husband was cool with the titles since he is the athlete in our relationship. I was also pleasantly surprised that he was excited that we were going to coach. I am not sure that I signed us up to coach in the first place but we were … [Read more...]

Thankful

thanksgiving pictures

  I was recently asked to explain why I am Thankful. That is a really loaded question. I really do not have anything not to be thankful for. I learned a long time ago that every minute counts and with every action you should think of the reaction. I know that being thankful isn't as important as setting an example. I know that being a good person helps me to be a better wife and mother. I know that if you look at a problem long enough there is a solution. I am not afraid of the work … [Read more...]
