Quote of the Week 8/20/06

I wanted to make sure the Quotes of the Week were saved in perpetuity on my blog, so here is last weeks quote.

The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice. - Mahatma Gandhi

Hurricane/Tropical Storm Ernesto

I am so tired of the hurricane watch. I feel like that is all I've done since 2004, even though I know that's not true. But that's the way I feel right now. In 2004, we were hit by both Frances and Jeanne. In 2005, it was Wilma. Now, we are waiting to see what Ernesto will do. And I've been very blessed with all of these hurricanes, as we haven't sustained much damage. But I am still just so tired of the hurricane watch. I love South Florida, but right now I am ready to live somewhere else.

I am 35 years old. I grew up in tornado country. In fact, I spent about 25 years living in tornado country. Do you know how many tornadoes hit me in all that time? Zero, that's right, zero. I've spent five years living in Florida and I've already been hit by three hurricanes and it could soon be four (the rest of my years were spent in either Utah or California). Those are not numbers that make me happy (well that I've never been hit by a tornado makes me very happy).

I know when the hurricane season ends, I will once again be very happy I live in Florida. Right now, though I am very tired of hurricane season and we still have three months to go.

I need to blog more

Okay, I need to post on my own blog more. This is pathetic. I am going to start doing better. I know I don't have the most exciting life in the world, but it's not this boring. lol
