Have you ever had one of those days?  You know the kind . . . you feel full of energy, life seems to deal you Aces at every turn and nothing can get you down.  I almost hate to tell you this but I haven't had one.  Nope, not one but three.  Even better, I think that I know why.  I've always known that I'm a perfectionist but you probably couldn't tell by looking at my office at home or at work and that's been the problem.  I've completely organized my office here at home and viola! I feel absolutely great.  As Shanna can easily attest, I am one of the laziest people on Earth when it comes to household chores.  Now, I'm not making any promises here but if I'm right and having a completely organized office makes me feel so good, cleaning may just become an addiction.  Just as a side note, when I came home Friday the whole house was immaculate except my office.  That's was all the impetus I needed to get my but in gear and clean-up my office.  Thanks Shan!

I just have to point something out.  Today as we discussed raising our children, a question was asked how we as parents can best discipline our children.  To get the discussion started the question, Should we always be critical of our children?  As with anything, extremism is just not a good thing.  Children who are only criticized will grow up believing that they can't do anything right.  On the other hand, children who are only praised will grow up believing that they can do no wrong.  Good parenting requires balance between the two.  One fellow piped up and seriously asked What's wrong with children believing that they can do no wrong?  Am I the only one that sees a problem with that?

On a final note, on 11 September all of Ormonds.net will go black for 24 hours beginning at 06:46 UTC-6:00.

I really wanted to say that the problem with children thinking that they can do no wrong is that they grow up mean, self-centered brats, just like his kids have.
