I'm open to making new friends. Please, however, READ THIS first.
A few years ago I did a day on Christmas Eve. Thinking about it, it had to have been 6 years ago, because I was still living in my parents' house! So much has changed in those 6 years... I'm posting both an extended version with stuff after midnight at the beginning of my day for just my friends and the regular version for the ADIML community.

I'm Lisa.
Age 32
Spanish Language teacher
New York, USA (not to be confused with NYC, I actually live a few hours north of it).

I have done a bunch of previous days, but not very recently.

Without further a do, here is Christmas Eve 2014Collapse )

Thanks for following my day :)

4 Years

This week marks FOUR years since we bought and moved into our home. It probably doesn't look like much has changed, but we've done our fair share of work.

I am thinking about renaming this journal. I don't even know if that's possible, but I would like the name to reflect me a little better since I've grown up so much in the -gulp- NINE years that I've now had it. I don't post nearly as much as I used to, but I would like to get back to it for various reasons. We shall see where this goes...

Garbage Truck Theory

I found this in an email and wanted to share...

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And, I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.' He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so...
Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don't.
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a garbage-free day!
