meme fun

I've got a bit of writers block right now, it's what happens when one of the darling daughters goes on a sleep strike and keeps me awake for 2 hours in the middle of the night crying! As soon as we go into the room, silence, if we leave the room, tears and screaming. I don't know how Enya can sleep through it, but she's not disturbed, so we're going to try Cry It Out. Wish me luck!!

Any way back to the writers block, in one of the other blogs I read she had a meme posted which I thought would make a nice easy post, so here we go.

I thought you'd visited dad's birthplace? Doesn't that count as visiting the birthplace of your ancestors?

23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill-

When I was in the corporate world we called them "Mental Health" days.

Nothing wrong with spending a day getting a pedicure and haircut...

Thanks for leaving a comment on my delurking post - I really appreciate it!

I did this survey on my blog! I've been reading your blog for a long time. I'm friends with Jodi (mother of Olivia and Logan). Your daughters are so close in age to Olivia. I love seeing how they develop. Ciara and Enya are so cute!
