It's Wednesday

Wednesday usually means yoga for me but Houston has swimming lessons this afternoon and I don't have enough energy for yoga anyway. I'm starting to get my appetite back and today is the first day i'm not nauseous. Yipee! It's been raining all day so far, which we really need, but I hope it stops for swimming lessons. We got rained out after about ten minutes yesterday.

I don't have much to blog about today so i'll leave you with some quotes from a great book i'm reading ... Financial Peace Revisited by Dave Ramsey.

From Chapter 3: The Basics (a foundation)
"You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you."

When your priorities get off track, money will take command instantly because of its active principle. I love the old adage "Measure your wealth not by the things you have, but by the things for which you would not take money."

From Chapter 4: Understand the Spiritual Aspects of Money
There are those who believe that finance is merely an exact mathematical science. That is the way it is taught in the universities. In fact, finance is an exact mathematical science -- until a human touches it. Personal finance is who you are. The personal, philosophical, and emotional problems and strengths that you have will be reflected in your use of money. If you are very disciplined, you can be a good saver of money. If you are very selfish or self-centered, you will surround yourself with expensive toys that you cannot afford.
