Good morning, Peg :)

Hey! We have some places in common. I have lived in Brooklyn, and in Wisconsin (my mother's family is all from there), and in IL (Chicago), and PA (Pittsburgh.

Shoot, now that I know that you're an English professor, I'm going to have to clean my writing back up!! Yikes! :)

Wishing you a great week of weaving,

oh dear, I think I share all five of your bad habits! Minor variation in that I'm not married to my boyfriend of the past 14 years. Who'd of thought we had those things in common!!

Jane, don't let the English professor fool you. First, it was literature that I taught. Second, I haven't taught in absolutely years.
Dorothy, I think those bad habits are pretty universal!
Hmm. this is the first time I have seen word verification on my blog...! And this one is really tricky....will probably end up doing it at least twice. And I have to choose an identity, even though I am signed in!!

Very interesting. Bad habits #1, 2, & 5 are me all over. But whoever said snacking before bed was a bad "habit"???
