March Madness - Day 2

Every minute counts!

Busy body, that's me. 😜

As I was leaving the office and walking to my car, I started to consider my options for the evening. It would be the first Friday evening that I wasn't on the road or with my family. That meant I could find lots to get into, right?

I could go get ice cream. 🍨
I could find the mall. 🏬👠👗
I could go home and watch tv. 📺
I could read one of my many books.📘
I could go find something tasty to eat. 🍖🍕🍔🍗
I could ride through neighborhoods for housing options.🏡
I could go see where the middle school and high schools I interested in are located. 🏫

But I decided to work my plan. All of my earlier ideas were great, but they would not have allowed me to accomplish the task at hand. Since I was challenged to run one mile per day, I needed to get it done before the darkness became my excuse not to complete the task of the day.

Some people wonder how "successful" people become "successful."

How do you currently maximize your minutes? 

If you have not been maximizing your minutes, what is one thing you can start to do today to maximize your minutes?

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
