3. Have you ever built a snowman? How about a sand castle?

4. Cat or Dog?

5. Do you like telling jokes?

7. In what month were you born?

I need a fun diversion today.

1. How was your day? I'm worrying about my family in Houston with Hurrican Ivan coming in. Oh, and they're working on our roof at work so it sounds something like sitting in a dentist's chair for 4 hours a day...other than that, great! ;)

2. What are you going to eat for your next meal? We are having a Greek lunch brought in at work.

3. Have you ever built a snowman? How about a sand castle? Snowman yes, sand castle no. And that's strange since I lived near the beach for the first 26 years of my life.

4. Cat or Dog? Human. Oooh, you mean pets. Dog. I would love to have a cat, but so would the dog. Also a dove, a cockatiel and a hampster, all adopted from folks who no longer wanted them.

5. Do you like telling jokes? No, I'm pretty shy.

6. What/Who is your favorite musical artist, or band? Forever and for always, Wings.

1. It's going pretty good!

2. I'm eating now..Chips, sandwich, and granola bar.

1. So far, my day has been fun! I went to Ikea with a friend and her three year old. I did not spend too much, and got some good organizing items... I have to go pick up my hubby from work, and traffic is gonna suck. :( But that is not for another 15 minutes!

2. I was just thinking about this. My family expects dinner. I feed them, then dang, but they want dinner AGAIN the next night! I need to learn to plan better.

3. Yes and yes. I grew up in the Chicago area. Snow men, snow forts, ice skating. Oh those were the days! Do I miss snow and ice? NO!

4. I have five cats. I like dogs, just have never had the pleasure of having one live with me.

5. I LOVE telling jokes, and I am pretty good at it I think!
