David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.

"+100 on this. Exactly like setting a budget, you need to get real about where you expend your time and energy (not where you think you do, or wish you did, but actually do).  Then you can figure out strategies to work through it. "
