You know…maybe I really will blog about some of these one day.


  1. I think you should blog about "I'm turning into my mother!" The older I get, the more often I say that. It could be a fun weekly observance. What do you think?

  2. I find that I most remind myself of my mother when I am "preaching" to my daughter! lol That, dancing a frantic jig if a spider ever gets on me....

  3. hmmm....some interesting ideas can do it too...all 27 of em if ya wanted. :)

  4. ovens are over rated in my opinion, LOL. love your new blog look. moms are wise people, aren't they? sadly, sometimes we realize they are wise when it is too late

    if you blogged about each and every one of these 27 things, I would read them all


  5. I've been without an oven at least that long... Goodness, you sound way to much like me, in a LOT of areas... :)

  6. You'd be amazed at how often I function perfectly without using my oven. ~Mary
