11 rules

  1. Sometimes we just need to remember what the 11 Rules of Life really are:

    1. Never give yourself a haircut after three margaritas.

    2. You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it should move but doesn't, use WD-40. If it moves but shouldn't, use the tape.

    3. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship are "I apologize" and "you are right."

    4. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

    5. If he/she says that you are too good for him/her
    believe them.

    6. Learn to pick your battles; ask yourself, "Will this matter one yearfrom now? How about one month? One week? One day?"

    7. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately. It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm.

    8. If you woke up breathing..........congratulations! You
    have another chance!

    9. Living well really is the best revenge. Being miserable because of a bad or former relationship just might mean that the other person was right about you.

    10. Work is good, but it's not that important. Money is nice, but you can't take it with you. Statistics show that most people don't live to spend all they have saved; some die even before they retire. Anything we have isn't really ours; it was given to us by God; He's just letting us borrow it while we're here... same for our kids. So enjoy your gifts while you have them..

    11. And finally... Be really good to your family and friends. You never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.
