Meme from Carrie

1~ Look around!! Describe to me the very first handmade *gift* your eyes run by that was made for YOU from one of your children. Then, tell me why you have it displayed where you do.
My daughter made the pencil holder in the kitchen. It's a can painted blue with a snowman on the front. It's been in the same spot for years even when out of season, just because I think it's cute, useful and makes me think of her.

2~ Looking back on our childhood, we all can remember something we *always* wanted as a kid, but just never got. What is the one thing you can still remember to this day that you never had the *joy* of receiving? I had a garage sale, B&W TV with foil on the antennae and broken dial in my room. Had to use pliers to change channels. Always wanted a new color TV. Maybe that explains why there are now 5 TV's in my house?

3~ What is one phobia that you have that others may find silly? I'm not talking fear of snakes. I mean *silly*, as in, others just don't get why on earth you're scared of *that*? Thanks to the movie, Sixth Sense, I always think there's someone under my bed that will grab my feet when I get up at night.

4~ Name one saying that you made up out of the blue. Nobody in the general public would know what you meant by it but your family is all too aware of exactly what you mean when the words spout out. "Laundry and dishes!"

5~ You have the power to grant one miracle to someone outside of your own family. This miracle can not be frivolous. Who would you grant this miracle to. What would the miracle be? How would you go about granting it? This is easy - heal Isabelle

Thanks to those who sent me the nice welcome messages! Thanks especially to Annie for fancying (is that a word?) up my blog! I can tell that blogging could get addictive, but that's okay. There are definitely worse things to be addicted to, right? Oprah says that keeping a journal is a good thing and blogging is kind of an on-line journal so I'm going to consider blogging a healthy thing to do.

I joined Weight Watchers last night. I've lost a lot of weight over the last few years and have managed to keep it off until recently. Last week I got a WW coupon in the mail for free registration. I decided that was a sign that I really need to get the scale moving in the right direction again. My home scale weighs 5 pounds lighter than the WW scale so it was a little sobering to see my # last night.

Uh oh, it's 7:13 a.m.!! I need to get ready for work and take my son to school........ Hope everyone has a good day!

I'm new to the blog world. Not sure I have enough to say to even have a blog, but my friend Annie is really into it and says I'm good at talking about nothing. Is that a compliment? Anyway, I'm glad to be here and hope to fancy up my blog in the days to come.
