All This and a Giveaway Too

So Tabi @ Tabi Rambles On , ahem , borrowed this from Momma Needs a Time Out so I decided that I would do it too.

Rules: ... scrapped em. BWAHHHAHAHAHAHahahahahahaha!

Oh, and if you just came in for the giveaway and could care less about reading my attempts at being witty using facts about myself then save yourself some time and scroll to the bottom. Other wise...

The Giveaway!

Its not mine but if you go to The Only Thing Worth Walking Toward and leave a comment on a certain post then you will be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card. YAY! While you are there take some time to get to know Darlene and read her blog. Its great fun.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This post literally took me all day. By the end of it the power was out. I guess a tree fell on a line somewhere. At least I have battery power and the phone line. Its 10pm and I can hear the work trucks out there right now beeping every time they hit reverse.

*sigh*

I want to stay up till its back on, which was supposed to be an hour ago, but the light is not good for reading. Guess I can work on my Ugly Mug post but that goes against the procrastinator in me. So, I guess I'll just meander around and see what you are all up to. :-)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just editing to say that the exact moment I hit the publish button the power came back on. I knew my words were magic but this is just too much...

I kid, I kid.

Oh my goodness...Great list, but too funny!

I can't believe you have gone bungee jumping! You are much more brave than me.

I see we would be the same color. Navy blue is my fav color, and I agree with food getting ruined by putting nuts in it. :)

Kate in NJ said...

As always, you crack me up!
If you lived closer, we could go thrift shopping together.;-)

Andi said...

Uh, Becky, how do I say this? I'm so flattered, truly I am...But that list is REALLY long. It looks like it requires lots of focus and thought. Can I do that? I'll try. Since it will be ALL ABOUT ME, I'm sure I'll muddle through! ;)
