WHERE IS THE LOVE - Mike talked with Dr. Misty Smith, LPC, from Mind, Body, & Heart Wellness Clinic about over commitment - something that we all struggle with and today's society. We make commitments to work, our spouses, our children, church, etc. If we aren't spending enough time with the people that really matter in our lives, our relationships will most definitely suffer!

Avoid overcommitting - 
1 - don't say yes too quickly
2 - consider the cost 
        -- What are you giving up? 
        -- Family time, couple time, sleep
3 - negotiate for when you do have time or provide them a potential referral
4 - set your limits. It's YOUR integrity
5 - serve as a team with your partner, spouse, or family
6 - stop feeling guilty
7 - learn to say no… Practice a lot!

For more information, you can contact Dr. Smith at 1-888-38-MYMBH - that's 1-800-386-9624.

OUR HOUSE - James Hindman with Bento Construction joins us with pointers on repairing the screens on your windows. He says having the proper tools is a must! He recommends using a four in one screen tool plus a rubber mallet hammer, small hand held metal hack saw, a rasp for rough edges, and a few hand clamps to hold. If you don't have a rasp, he says you can also rub the ends of the screen on the garage or concrete floor to help. James says you must be patient and take your time..... Going fast will mess it up. He also recommends you always measure twice and cut once. And he reminds us that we should not be afraid to read directions. For more information, you can find James Hindman at Bento Construction at 205-405-4347 or
