i live in utah...

~If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September to May, you live in Utah.
~If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Utah.
~If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Utah.
~If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed the wrong number, you live in Utah.
~If 'vacation' means going anywhere south of Salt Lake City for the weekend, you live in Utah.
~If you measure distance in hours, you live in Utah.
~If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Utah.
~If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' and back again in the same day, you live in Utah.

~If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Utah.
~If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Utah.
~If the speed limit on the highway is 75 mph -- you're going 80, and everyone is still passing you, you live in Utah.
~If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in Utah.
~If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction, you live in Utah.
~If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly' you live in Utah.
~If you actually understand these jokes you live in Utah.

happy new year!!

a friend of mine emailed this to me and it really hit home for me... i am going to do my best to live by this handbook. i think it will be good! enjoy...

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5. Make time to pray.
6. Play more games
7. Read more books than you did in 2009.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take 10-30 minute walks daily. And while you walk, smile.
11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over-do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with His/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree...
25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything..
28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
i hope that 2010 is a year to be remembered for good! :)
