First of all…I do NOT know what’s up with WordPress lately but the last few blogs I have tried to comment on refuse to show the comments. Therefore, I am taking a break from reading all the blogs I am subscribed to and hopefully, it will be working when I get done with this blog.

I stole this X List from another blog called “Walk a mile in my shoes”…I tried leaving her a comment letting her know I was “stealing” but it didn’t show. I’m crediting her blog here so she knows that I chose to be brave and post it on my blog too! 🙂

(X) this « Walk A Mile In My Shoes.  <—And if you don’t already subscribe to her blog, you should! I love it and I think you will, too!

If there’s an X beside the item listed, then it’s something that applies to me…if not, then it doesn’t! Thanks Stacey for posting this first! 🙂
