Here is an update on some big news that has occured in the past week:

- I had an interview for a potential job last week.

- I worked at a volleyball camp all of last week, working long hours with the longest day being 15 hours.

- At a midnight showing of "Dark Knight Rises" on Friday, there was a massive shooting that has killed 12 people and injured many others. What drives people to do such cruel things, what pushes them over the edge, will always remain a mystery to me. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. I can't imagine how awful this must be. I also think about the suspect's family and what a strange and terrible situation they are now placed in as a result of this. And the suspect was a bright individual with his whole life ahead of him...only a year younger than I am. What makes screwing up your life (and everyone else's) "worth it"?

Could be worse...

Had a little diet slip up yesterday during lunch, and our water isn't working, but it could be a whole lot worse.

Day 1

Today is the first day of a 30 day "healthy food only" diet, with the only exceptions being ice cream and a wedding we are attending in a few weeks.

Turning a New Leaf

As I have found myself increasingly busy, and less able to keep this blog updated, I have seriously considered discontinuing the blog. However, I think it is important to me to document the events of my life, significant and insignificant, so that at a later date I can reflect upon them. I think it would also be neat to one day have my children read parts or all of my blog and see what life was like for me growing up, both the important milestones and the day to day occurances. I got an idea from Pinterest, of all places, to do a daily documentation in one sentence or less. They suggested to write it on an index card, and then to start over the next year using the same index cards, so you can see what you did a year ago on that exact day. Then as the years go by, you can look back at what you did 10 years ago on that day. I thought the idea was interesting and fitting for me as I generally don't have a lot of time to blog. I am going to start doing one sentence posts and include at least one picture as well. On the occassion that something particularly big or important happens, I will actually do a full length blog post, but for now, I will stick to one sentence a day...starting tomorrow.
