Sonny and I went to a retirement seminar today sponsored by the Golden Boys. It was pretty interesting. It had to do with finding balance in your life. Each person (or couple) should assess their own balance and brainstorm the areas of your life that are important to you and put these on a wheel (see below). Then you rate each of these areas to determine if your "wheel" is balanced. After that, you should plan a 30-day action plan to help get your life in balance.
What would you put on your wheel? The items I included on mine were: Financial Security; Family; Friends/Social Life; Fun; Giving Back to the Community; Health/Fitness; Travel; Love. If you would like to make your own Wheel, check out the article HERE. There is a template included in the information.
Wednesday was my nephew, Derek's, 21st birthday. The family met at Kobe Steak House for his birthday celebration. That is the restaurant that Derek and Harrison always choose for their birthday dinners. Almost the whole family was there. Unfortunately, Harrison was at soccer try-outs (YEAH - he made Varsity!!) so he wasn't able to join us. Here is a scrapbook page I made from the pictures I took that night using My Digital Studio: (you can click on the picture to see it close up - just remember to hit the arrow button to come back to my blog)
These are the birthday cards that Ashley and I made for Derek:
This one was mine. I used a Jumbo (retired) Wheel for the bottom piece. Unfortunately, I did not have a beer mug, so used the drink from Tropical Party.
This was Ashley's card. Isn't the Sock Monkey the cutest? He has new accessories in the new catalog - check them out on page 83.
OK - I'm falling asleep at my desk. It's time to hit the sack!! Good night & sweet dreams!
