I love these things. It's interesting to see what others have done.

I think I stole the same thing from Daysgoby, I have just never gotten around to actually doing it! Maybe that should be one of my 99 things. *lol*

God, it's freezing. Are you guys getting the freezing rain/sleet crap down there, that we are up here in Maine? Just snow already. I can't stand walking outside and sliding down my driveway. I broke my tailbone in three places last year after a nasty fall and I don't want a repeat of that again! Oiy!

Ok, rant over.

I hate winter.
