You know, I'm not always the best about being on time, but since I've started working at Novell, I've started to realize how much time is really worth (both as far as dollars and otherwise).

And while the lesson seems harsh, I'm sure he'll always remember it.

I remember that there was one month that I didn't do my chores or something, and my mom made me pay her back after she gave me my allowance. I asked her why she was paying me the full amount initially, and not just paying me whatever the fraction that I had earned. She emphasized that she wanted me to have the feeling of giving the money back to her for the things I didn't do.

I remember thinking at the time that it was silly, but it's always stuck with me.

I liked the way you handled this, Mar.
And Karen, above, your Mom was very smart, too!

I have noticed a change in Smash! In fact, this morning when I got home from seminary, he was already up and going and eating breakfast!! It has been so much nicer in the mornings with all of us just getting up at the right time this week! :)
