That was fun, thank you Carole. :o) Ok so I'm going to tag....Michele!

And speaking of Michele(teehee)...she tagged me for this meme:

The Rules:
“Each person links to the person who tagged them. Then each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people and then visits those peoples’ sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.”

(Ok I'm already going to bend the rules as I really don't have 8 people I can tag soooo I'll just tag 1 person. Well maybe that's more then bending the rules...)

1. I hate my hair! It's really frizzy/curly and I want to get it straightened using that Japanese thermal straightening technique but it's pretty darned expensive.

2. I'm an only child and I wish I could have had sisters and brothers to grow up with.

3. I've loved Sushi for as long as I can remember and I actually really liked octopus when I was little but I definitely don't like it now. Yech!

4. I only like one type of white wine called Gew├╝rztraminer because it's sweet and fizzy but it's not sparkling wine. All red wines are ok though. :o)

5. I like to play computer games, especially MMORPG's, which makes me a hero in my son's eyes. I imagine most anyone reading this has absolutely NO idea what MMORPG means. LOL!

6. I've never broken a bone in my life.

7. I've never had a cavity either. *crosses fingers*

8. I adore roses, gardenias and hydrangeas but have none of them in my yard! *sigh*

So I'm gonna tag....Linda! Have fun. :o)

That's it for me today. It's my birthday so dh should be coming home earlier than usual and we're going to have ice cream and rent a movie. Then hopefully I'll get to sleep in tomorrow!! :o)
I do have stuff to list on eBay and ETSY but I think it can wait a day or two...

Thoughts & Prayers....

Being pretty much MIA for the past week & a half I had planned on posting quite a bit but with what happened in Minneapolis I'm thinking of others today and sending my thoughts & prayers to all of the people involved in this tragedy and to those family members who still haven't heard from their missing loved ones...I can only imagine what that must be like.
It is truly scary to think that there are some 80,000 other bridges across the US that had the same rating (or worse) than this particular bridge. :o(
