To spare you...

Ohh fun I want to do that :)
Sorry you're having a crappy weekend/start to the week. Blah!

btw: I buy a big bag of dry pinto beans, sort through them and wash them to get all of the dirt and other bits of stuff out. Start them on low around 8pm the night before. Let them cook all night and all the next day, salt and pepper a couple of times throughout the day. Then around 2 hours before you eat, turn it up to high and slice an entire polish sausage or kielbaska and put in with it. YUMMY!! You have to make cornbread with it too :)

I'm totally doing this.

I swear something in every one of your posts cracks me up. This time, it was the world being thankful that you haven't sung a solo.

I was Conjunction in my 5th grade school play about the parts of speech... the only part with a solo!

That looks like fun! I'm going to have to steal it off your blog.

I have writer's block today...consider your post plagiarized.

I'm loving the list! I hope you have a better week!

Also, if you feel like answering some Christmas questions, I tagged you with a Deck the Halls Meme.
