Little things you might not know about me....

So my cute friend Michelle that is looking way too good for having her 5th kiddo also had this fun diddy posted on her blog.

I'm at a loss as to what to post today so I thought this would be fun. And heaven only knows you don't want to hear me drone on about my woes with my near 14 year old. I swear...I just don't know what to do with that girl and I'm darn near in tears about it.

I can't believe you've never donated blood or plasma! Today is going to be one busy house looks like a rowdy rock band stayed here for a couple of days. Smile. Talk to you later.

Kristy said...

Let's just say I don't like needles so much. ;)

Now my hubby...he has scars from donating plasma when he was an ever so poor college student trying to provide for his family!

Sheryl said...

Interesting list, Kristy. I've had a go at this on my blog. There's a lot I haven't done and, to be quite honest, a lot I really don't want to do! I'm surprised you didn't do Paris when you were in Europe!

Michelle said...

You are way too kind my friend! I'm glad you did your own list. It's pretty interesting to see what people have done in their lifetime! Now of course, if we can get on Amazing Race we could cross many of these items off! Maybe after tax season!!

Becky T said...

Wow, loved reading this! It's always fun to learn more about people and look at you even having that great picture to prove that you've seen Pisa in person! :) You're amazing!

That made me smile for some reason. I am going to do this.
