80 Questions

Yesterday, I shared the first half of my Week in the Life pages. I was planning on sharing the rest tomorrow (or today when you're reading this, but I'm writing this on Tuesday night). I figured I'd go to work, go to Target, come home, make some dinner and scrapbook.

Except that plan started to go badly with the traffic on my way to/from Target. And then (after I schedule this!) I have to do a deep clean in the kitchen - I spilled pasta everywhere and made a gigantic mess, which means cleaning the stove, the oven, scrubbing the not fun!

I was getting super stressed, so I walked away from the kitchen to eat quickly and jumped on blogger to see what was going on and I found this 80 questions meme through Its on the Tip of My Tongue. It looks like fun, so I'm going to take a break and fill it out, then go finish cleaning!

Thank you for reading if you got all the way to the end of this! If not, I totally understand, that was a lot of questions!

Have a fabulous Wednesday :)

Sorry about your kitchen mess! That sounds like a lot of work to clean up! I loved your 80 questions and read every one of them!! I might have to do this, it's a fun one!! We have so many similarities (but we knew that already!). Yay for last day of teaching!!!!!

Isn't that always the way!!
That happens to me a lot on Saturdays.
I make plans to scrap, but so much always gets in the way. Usually some kind of mess :)

Fun questions! I quickly skimmed but quite a few caught my eye. Target is my favorite, too. Love Egg sandwiches for breakfast, too. And watching Phineas and Ferb with the kids :)
