You make me laugh.


Great list,Kim! I want to resurrect my Blog too.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Sheri - you should! Would love to read it. :)


Next time you're out this way, how about some tp roll tossing lessons? I think I could do that.

The one I like the best is #15 about the orange bicycle - that is my favorite color, and I have LOTS of orange stuff!

Also #47 about being a Yankee fan. Me too! Since I was a little girl, and I rooted for the Yankees and my sister for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Of course, the Yankees almost always won those confrontations.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Jane, will you be at SlowBowl? We could have a contest :).

Nancy - do you ever get east? If you do, I really recommend the The Yankee Stadium Tour. And if not that, then definitely a game. Would love to go with you. :)


Thanks for the chuckle about the furniture.

Anita Fiessi:

I like your list Kim. I'm glad that you have friends that support you! Chris, your husband sounds great and so do your kids.
