chew on this for a bit

Again, this week promises to be busy! Tomorrow is my last MOPS meeting here in good ol' Nebraska *big tear*. Although I'm going to try to find a new group out in Virginia, it may be tough to schedule it in for awhile. And I really liked this group.

And I know my blog has been blah lately. I'm so sorry for those SITS visitors who happened upon this mess. It's like I haven't cleaned my house or something (which I do...sometimes). I hope they saw that I'm not always like this.

Anyway, here is a little something I stole from A Mommy in Jeans & High Heels to keep you entertained until I get back to my regularly scheduled blogging. AND check out the new contest hosted by A Daily Dose of Toni - very cool.

I'm going to italics all those things in this list I've done in my life. Then you can copy & paste it when you're having a blah bloggy day and do your own list then.
