I thought I'd share a quick picture from vacation for today...with lots more to come! Sammie wanted to see Minnie Mouse more than any other character, so our first stop when we hit the Magic Kingdom on was Toon Town for a walk through Minnie's house! She just happened to be in the gazebo out back posing for pictures!

Well...perhaps I'll share the picture tonight...for some reason blogger won't let it go through! Sorry!

Thank for the blog challenge, KatieJ…here’s what I came up with!

The Countdown!!!!

Okay…so it’s 40 days until I turn 40. Can you believe that? I know I look so much younger than 40! (That’s what I keep telling myself!) Anyway, I’ve been trying to think of something clever to post about each day for my countdown, but I can’t come up with a single idea that I totally love, so instead, I’m just going to challenge myself to post once a day, every day, from now until I turn 40! I might find some old pictures and stuff like that to post. I’ve got some REAL doozies that should make everyone laugh...and I’ve been told I’ll definitely need a good sense of humor as I reach this milestone. I keep hearing about how everything just falls apart. Gosh, I hope that’s not entirely true! I’ve still got about another 63 years ahead of me -- at least according to the obituary I wrote for myself in Senior English in high school! Maybe I could even find that and post it for a good laugh!

Thanks for counting down with me!

Gas prices....

So, I hate to start blogging again and be negative right off the bat, but today I forgot my purse as I left for work. I realized it when I pulled into the gas station. I didn't HAVE to have gas right then, but thought I'd go ahead and get it so I wouldn't have to mess with it after work today. Not good news. At this point, gas was $3.22 per gallon. Down 7 cents from when I bought it on Friday morning.

Since I had no purse, which meant no money, Roger took me to lunch! As I was headed to meet him at Arby's, I passed a gas station and was SHOCKED to see the price of gas....$3.45 per gallon. That is absolutely CRAZY!!!!
