Things I Have Done

This has been one of those rare months when all of my major Home and School Committments occurr in the same week - along with Adam's 21st Birthday. It has been a challenge to keep up with the everyday blogging! Thanks to Palma and Marcia, I have an entry for today! Looks like I still have much to do!

Palma found this meme at Just a Beachkat. She very nicely passed it on to the February Bloggers, so thanks Palma and Kat, this was quick and fun. While I know that there are still many things I have yet to do or see, I was surprised when I saw just what I have done so far. There is still a lot of time left, but I can promise there will be no bungee jumping, no way, no how.

Sorry, Marcia. I didn't realize that I copied and pasted your opening paragraph!

Sheri, cool list. Who is the famous person you met I wonder?


It's OK, and welcome to the "once was enough deep seas fishing club".


Candi, I copied and pasted this from Marcia. Should have deleted the * by famous people. I've met some well know local people, but no one famous!
