How to Install Brakes on Your Hamster Wheel


Vlogging to you from Lake Almanor, California (thanks to frequent flyer miles and staying with our friend Lisa)! Sorry folks, we ran into “tech problems” yesterday and couldn’t get this up until today. But hey, the scenery alone is worth the wait!

So you wanna know how to install brakes on your hamster wheel? I thought the solution was crazy until I tried it. Take a gander.

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. Laurie… its gorgeous!!… I mean you, oh yeah the scenery too…
    I suppose people have told you that the vlog is choppy with breaks in the audio….? i checked it out on youtube too and the same problem. i got the idea but it was hard to follow.
    ……my hamster wheel is still squeeky…! but that is something I have to work on..

  2. Rats. (Or should I say “Hamsters!) Sorry it was still choppy. I worked on it all day Wednesday afternoon, trying to get my computer to work right…it kept shutting off and I wouldn’t notice until I had cut the whole thing. I must have cut this episode a couple dozen times! Thinking it was my computer overheating, I cut it again the next morning when it had a chance to cool down. THEN, there appears to be a connection problem! ARGH!!! I have a love/hate relationship with technology!

    About your hamster wheel, yeah, we can work on that together! Getting OFF it, I mean! 🙂

    Thanks for your comments, Amy! I so appreciate them!
