Collective “ahhhhh”  for Friday.  That’s nice.

This week DRAGGED for me.  I’m not sure why.  I think between subbing some extra classes/more client orientations and spending a boat load of money at Lowes (patio doors…I’m thinking some oversized trash bags and duct tape would have done the job well), I’m just mentally and physically drained.  Good thing we don’t have anything scheduled for this weekend.  I plan to spend it in my pajamas.

I saw this super cool idea for a post on Christine’s blog last week.  She got the idea from a girl who got it from a girl who got it from a girl who got it from Greta.  (This is what you might call a “blogger chain letter” – remember those?!?  I remember doing one and getting a bunch of oven mitts in the mail from various people.  Good times.)  Unlike getting all of those crazy oven mitts, I think this idea is brilliant.  Greta actually has a link-up party for these “Life In Numbers” posts, so that’s what I’ll do after this publishes – link up!

Here goes…
