Guess what? We’ve been nominated for Blog of the Month over at Christie’s site.  As always there is stiff competition, so we pretty much have no shot at winning this. But, if you feel so compelled, vote for us!  I mean, you like a bargin don’t you?  If we win you get a 2-for-1 (hey, it worked for Bill).  You know you like a bargin!

In other news, Sheri, the fabulous Ms. Carrie and myself will be hitting the road on Friday to the land of big hair and shiny shoes.  So what did these two ladies want to do Friday morning?  Can you believe “S L E E P    I N “.  Then it hit me…I am traveling with two women with OCD.  Carrie manages to point out to me that we will be staying with someone who is also OCD. 

Somebody Help Me!

    Sleep in? Yeah, right! I just wanted enough to get my nails did before we head to the land of big hair and shiny shoes. Just kidding.

    See, I’m the truly lazy one – since it’s just the girls, screw the nails looking good – I’m sleeping in. 🙂 heehee

    Suz, you’ll be just fine – if we get on your nerves just count to three then back down then back up to four then back down, then repeat the process so you’ve counted to three three times and four four times then check the locks and make sure everyone has their seatbelt on at least twice and you’ll be fine…or, I could just give you a xanax to knock you out on the way up there…. 🙂 heehehheee
