beware of a sale.

You have heard me say again and again "If you wouldn't pay full price for it, don't buy it just because it is on sale." If you would pay full price for something you see on super sale, then by all means snatch it up. If not, leave it on the rack. It's probably the sale that appeals to you, not the item.

Another good bit of wisdom: If you can live without it, don't buy it. This is what I say to you when you call me from the store and describe in detail this amazing clothing item you just found on clearance. I know if you are taking time to call me about it, you are having doubts and want some confirmation. You won't get it from me. Love it or leave it.

I don't know anyone who doesn't have too many clothes.

remember the four hour rule.

This is a valuable piece of wisdom. Basically it goes like this: If you throw up, do not eat or drink anything for 4 hours. Do not cheat on this time frame even by 10 minutes. It takes four hours for the lining of the stomach to heal. So if you have the flu and you keep drinking water (because you will be thirsty) you will keep throwing up. Wait the four hours. Then start with ice chips and tiny sips to test the stability of your tummy. You will thank me for this. No one likes cleaning up vomit, even if it is from your precious child.

get your sleep.

Your life will be sweeter if you get more sleep. Years ago I read some research that most people need 9 hours and 20 minutes of sleep every night - not just 8 hours - and I knew it was true. The research was from someplace very authentic like The National Sleep Institute. I'm not making this up.

I am convinced that the reason that many people are grouchy, unhappy, cranky, dull, bitter, discontent, with bad attitudes or the blahs is from not getting enough sleep. I think most of the world lives sleep deprived.

I want you to remember to always get your sleep.

Next time you can't think of ten things to be thankful for in two minutes, ask yourself "How much sleep did I get last night?"

If you possibly can, arrange your life so that you do not have to wake to an alarm.
