Let's see if we can pull some people out! I loved the 10 things about you poll!! I guess everyone is just busy with school. I have so many things that are hanging over my head that it threatens to put me in shut down mode. I need to complete the kids' Halloween costumes, plan the boys' birthday party, start thinking about Christmas stuff, pack for this weekend, do a little shopping before this weekend, etc., etc. I hate to have this bogged down feeling. I just need to buckle down and get things done!!! It is always like this at this time of the year.
Anyway, enough of my complaining...here goes!

1. First person you talked to this morning.

2. A dream that you had last night.

3. What do you hear right now?

4. Last thing that you ate/drank.

5. What is the main thing you need to accomplish today besides school?

6. The last thing that made you LOL.

7. What are you doing this weekend?

8. What are you looking forward to?

9. Who will you most likely call first today?

10. How is the weather?

Okay so the last thing that made me LOL....Remy my youngest was naked yesterday because he saw me getting dressed to go out, which signals him getting dressed to go out. He screams, "Mama we can't go anywhere, cause my butt is NAKED!" Oh gosh it just tickled me.
