The Party's Winding Down

Well, I hoped to have something witty and fitting to say for this, the last fun-packed day of The Ultimate Blog Party. Unfortunately, I think my Maine brain has Spring fever and has flown southerer for a bit of warmth. It's either that or I'm on overload from being locked in the house for 2 weeks with coughing, needy girlies.

Either way, I'm going to celebrate my last party day with this party meme I found completed on Life as a Mama:

Held a tarantula??? UGHHHH! You're talking to a gal that's terrified of even the teeniest tiniest spider! lol that was a lot of fun going down the list to see what you had done out of all of them!! I see you touched a cockroach...what am I gonna do with you??? lol

Tammy said...

Loved finding out what you have and haven't done, Groovy! You've accomplished some things here that I haven't...and a couple that I don't want to do! heehee
Oh, and yes...there is another way to make cookies. Nothing like popping that Nestle cookie dough onto the pan for instant gratification! ;)

Also, I wanted to thank you for wishing my mom a happy 80th! I so appreciate that!
And I agree about the vaccinations...I think overall they have been a blessings, but lately have become overboard, so I also pick and choose.
Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Ah Pea,

I love all things science related. Yes indeedy!

Tammy, NESTLE COOKIE DOUGH?????????????

Damselfly said...

Wow, that's some list!

Your comment on my "mom talk" post during this party was hil-arious! ;)

Susan said...

I linked to you from PEA site because your name caught my attention in her comments. I'm definately an old lady!

Michelle-ozark crafter said...

Love your answers to your meme! huggles

Karen said...

I'm impressed. We've done many (most) of the same things, with a few exceptions on both sides. I will not willingly touch a cockroach OR a spider.

Good lust, lost of interesting things. I'd write more, but someone is insisting upno talking to em even though it's obvious I'm BUSY...

Cindy said...

I just came here from Top Momma...I had to click your link, and come tell you to watch for mine, because I think you'll laugh when you see the picture I chose. It's VERY reminiscent of yours! (Mine hasn't come up on Top Momma yet, but it's on my blog if you want a preview....)

Dawn said...

That's quite a list! There are a few on there that I've done that you haven't, and a lot of vice versa.

You're right about the craziness of Colorado weather - you just never know!! But it's never boring, that's for sure.

Warm Regards
