Eight! Eight things…ah, ah, ah, ah, ha!



Ok..so you caught me.

I do, on occasion, channel the count from sesame street.

He has been woven into the fabric of who I am.

I’m trying to learn to accept it.

But about the eight.

Whilst avoiding the myriad of chores that await my attention this evening, I stumbled upon some lady’s blog and she had this “eight things” post.

And since I’m super bored, and wish to continue to avoid said chores.

And because I am just stinkin’ depressed about the holidays this year and do not wish to delve into that abyss of my physche,

I am going to do the eight things.

You do it too.

Then post a link in the comments section here.

Oh come on!

you know you have chores you want to avoid!

Besides…it’ll be FUN!!

So, without further ado…

  • Hannah Montana not being popular anymore. Really.

8 things on my wish list:

  • A foot spa… my feet hurt soooooooo bad.
  • A “Mikey chair”.  My uncle had this chair in his house..it was huge and comfortable and I want one. And yes, I named it after him.  I’m strange like that.
  • A clean house.  HA!
  • A down vest.  I’d really like a down vest.
  • To be about 50lbs. lighter.
  • For my parents to come for Christmas.
