A must see..







I don't know how many people are familiar with Randy Pausch. He is the college professor @ Carnegie Mellon who has pancreatic cancer and has been given months to live. He gave his last lecture at his university and became somewhat of a "celebrity". Diane Sawyer is doing a special tonight on ABC (10/9 central) called "Learn to Really Achieve Your Childhood Dreams". If you haven't heard the lecture or seen him speak you really should tune in. He is an amazing person and the things he says really makes you think about how you are living your life. He has a wife and three young (6,3, & 18 mos) kids he will leave behind. It sounds like he is trying to live the rest of his life without regrets; without wishing he had spent more time with his family. He also has a book (just out yesterday) called "The Last Lecture".
I will spend most of the day cleaning, orgainzing, etc. There is always so much to do. My garage is starting to bust at the seams so I will try to get some things to St Vincent de Paul today. I hope to get a lot done so my husband will notice the transformation when he gets home. :) But I need to get off this comptuer in order to start....

Hi Debra,
In WA kids need to be in a car seat/booster until they are 4'9" tall. Hope that helps :0)
