OK so here is how it went down...First ChewyMom tagged Curmudgeon who in turn tagged me (Ironically some I barely changed)

7 things I want to do in 2006:

finish unpacking and be more patient.

Lose a bit (ahem... a lot) more baby fat.

Read to Squink more often.

Keep a much cleaner house and invite people over more.

Smooch (I forgot how much I adore that word) my husband a lot more.

Tell people that they are being nice and thank them (also do my TTOAST every week).

Finish at least one room in the house.

7 things to do less of in 2006:


Spend money.

Goof off.




Go to the dollar store.

Second meme tag, Guilty Pleasures Via Curmudgeon (again) who in turn got tagged by Mary

Meme: Ground Rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 Guilty Pleasures" and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their 5 Guilty Pleasures as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names

1. CBS News Sunday Morning

2. The dollar store (any one of them), or BigLots.

3. emolients.

4. spending time with my Squinky and family.

5. Reading every night

I do love a good meme

I tag... Curious hamster, Nettie (should she ever come among the living bloggers again), Catherine, Agnes, My mom, and my aunt ... pick one or both or none at all, but just know I am thinking of you!

Isn't smooch a wonderful word? :)

Blair said...

I just love smooch, it is a darn good word! Thanks for reminding me of it BTW!

Nettie said...

I live! And will try to break in the new blog with a few good memes!

Hi. I'm going to do the seven things meme shortly. Been tagged with a variant by a couple of other people too.

Struggling with TTOAST today (I'm in a bit of a bad mood for reasons I won't bore you with). I'm intending to do it tomorrow though. WTOAST doesn't quite have the same ring to it but it's the thought and stuff.
