Do you watch "Shark Week" on the Discovery Channel? July 31-August 6, 2011 was Shark Week. I loved it! I have watched in the past in bits in pieces but this year I was glued to my TV or DVR every night.

Andy Samberg of SNL and the big screen was featured as this years lead in and outs of commercials with his own "shark" encounters. The clips are fun and he did a great job. Can I just say there is something about the "Geeks" that are making me smile and laugh lately.

So if you missed seeing close encounters with Sharks from the safety of your couch go to YouTube or Discovery Channel and look for those clips. The one that freaked me out the most was the "Jaws Comes Home" episode featuring the Cape Cod area. Amazingly they have a growing number of sharks hanging out in that area because of the increase of the seal population. Also some of the more grotesque episodes were re-enactments of people who have been bitten or killed by sharks. Makes you think twice about what is lurking out there!

August Goals

Baby blocks seem very suitable for this month. It is me taking 'baby steps' back into my monthly goals. Below are my August 2011 goals:

1. Read 3 books!
2. Bring 3-4 lunches to work from home a week
3. 4 Dinners at home a week
4. Clean up the pantry
5. Ebay 2 items!

Nice slow start to getting into the groove again.
