My family is like that of a Dairy of a Wimpy Kid

I opened the door and from the room came a glow. “Oh great” I thought “He is at it again!” inside the room was my eleven year old son with earphones on so that I could not hear the noise coming out of the television as he was busy playing his Xbox 360 game. He had added a sheet to the curtains to make his room darker than normal. I suddenly felt like I was the mother of Greg from the book series Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Dog Days.

Last year I wanted to get my 10 year old son reading, something he appeared not to enjoy too much and after reading a review of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid I purchase two books in the series for my son’s Christmas presents. He was not so impressed upon opening the present and discovering the books or the fact that I made him take them with us in the car to see his grandparents in the country. Sitting in the car I could fell my son’s anger as he sat behind me, so I decided that I should check out what the books were really like; within two minutes I was laughing and reading bits of the book out loud to my husband as he drove. My son then asked for a look at what I was talking about, so I handed him the book with the page open. Three days later he had read both books.

The book series ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ is quick and easy to read. There are little cartoon pictures to add extra laughs. I would recommend these books to any child (my nine year old daughter enjoys them also). There is only one word to describe reading any of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and that is FUN. Jeff Kinney has written a great series and I personally as well as my children cant wait for the next book in the series

Keeping New Year Resolutions

New Years Eve has been and gone and the New Year Resolutions are beginning to see the New Year and reality. I stopped making New Year Resolutions a few years back when I realized that I was not keeping any of the resolutions I was making. So what sort of resolutions do we really need to make for 2010?

It was interesting to watch the morning television show and see them talking about dieting as a New Year Resolution and what they recommend people to eat and not eat. There is many an article on how to make money in 2010. So is this all we are worried about? Is it just money and dieting?

Some times the New Year Resolutions need to be about trying something new in life or making better opportunities of what we feel are not up to our own personal standards. For some people it will be about taking that journey to find out who God made you to be and what you are going to need to do to get there.

No matter what your New Year Resolution is, keep your eyes focused on what it is that you really want and have fun on the way.
