99 Things

I can’t blog surf tonight because we have once again used up all our bandwidth in less than 2 weeks, and waiting for pages to load on this super slow connection is driving me mad. So I found this on Kelly’s blog, Reclaiming Me, and thought I might as well fill it out. It’s pretty boring, because I haven’t travelled a lot and most of the questions are about places and things around the world. It’s just something to fill in the time, and this space.

Watched a meteor shower – no.
Given more than you can afford to charity – no.
Been to Disneyworld - no, not really on my list of must dos.
Climbed a mountain - yes, a long time ago.
Held a praying mantis – yes, I’m the only one in our house that will go anywhere near them, so I am on bug removal duty.

Now it’s only 9:30, everyone else is in bed, and I have nothing to do. This never happens. It’s times like this I wish I had a craft room, so I could get my craft on without waking everyone up.

One day.

Soon I hope!
