There is so much competition for game systems this year. Of course we knew this was coming but how many people have the money for them? I know my kids wish they could see a ps3 under the tree this year but that is NOT going to happen. Sorry guys, your mama needs a promotion first!
Wii is the cheapest system but I hear they plan on upgrading the system and coming out with a new model this time next year. I think I can wait on that one. As of today we have one game cube, one ps2 and two xboxes. Maybe next year we can trade them all in and get a PS3??!!

I took my best friend to the airport this morning. She was going to Japan for her fathers "homecoming". It has been one year since is death. In the Japanese culture they celebrate the one year and I think every year after their death. It is a rememberance thing but I think the first year is the most important.
She called from the airport because the travel agent booked her flight for the wrong MONTH. She was stuck at the airport with plans for her fathers special event and no way to get to Japan. She was in tears. My friend NEVER cires. I have not seen her cry but she told me that she was in tears and did not know what to do.
The flight attendant was able to help her by selling her a buddy pass for $800.
Just recently my aunt (hula teacher) graduated her first class of students. She has always had a class that she was grooming and we always started and never finished. I hated it. It was like a dog and pony show. I felt like I had to learn so many things....stop, and start all over again. I got so tired of it. It was like a dog chasing his tail. Well, she finally followed through and graduated a group of students that started in her school 4 years after I did. Now they can become hula teachers.
Why is it that I put a PAIR of socks into the washing machine and only get one back? I could swear that I put them BOTH in the washer and BOTH in the dryer and yet when I begin to separate the wash and fold the clothes there is always at least one orphan. There have been times when I got someone else's sock in my wash. How does this happen?
All women want to know the key to success. How do we define ourselves in society? Well, an article I read, written by Barbara Moss, answers such questions.
A survey was conducted. Included in this survey were accomplished, university-educated women in their late 30s to mid-50s. Some held senior positions in business, government and the not-for-profit and cultural sectors. Some had left marquee jobs to pursue a passion -- start a business, write or follow other personal interests. These were the top 5 answers.
1. Know yourself. This knowledge is the foundationf for making effective career and life decisions. If your job does not require your best skills or calls for you to act like someone you aren't, find another role.
2. Act on what is most important to you. Refuse to put on the back burner the things you care deeply about. Make a date with yourself at the end of each week and ask: What did I learn? Which of my values are being met? Looking to the future: How can I make my work a better fit with what I need? Don't drift. Make conscious decisions. Defend your personal time aggressively. Start thinking about the legacy you want to leave.
3. Maintain your integrity Stay firm on the issues that go to the core of what you believe in.
4. Distinguish between the big issues and the smaller ones Ask yourself, "Is this really important?" As tempting as it can be to let it rip, consider the consequences. Similarly, be open to influence.
5. Dont make work the centerpiece of your identity Many survey respondents regretted having put their work before their personal lives and having made too many sacrifices for their jobs. You can't cuddle or giggle with your job at the end of the day.
Refurbished iPod supply dwindles
Apple's refurbished iPod offerings have dwindled to just two items following the busiest shopping day of the year. The company's 4GB iPod nano ($149) and its iPod Hi-Fi ($299) appear as the only remaining refurbished iPod-related items in the U.S.
