Things I have done!

I have been a bad blogger lately - I've not really been able to check blogs much the past couple of weeks. But as I sit here, holding a 12 day old baby who already thinks sleeping is for the birds, I thought I would do this tag. I'm at Annie's and don't have access to my pictures so this is a great way to spend some time :) I, like Mandy, feel the need to explain some of my activities and I am astonishingly sad or embarassed that at my age I have not done more of the things on this list.....
