Crazy Eights

I’m still a little new to the wonderful world of blogging but I’m finding that I’m getting quite addicted to it. And I’m finding that it’s tough to come up with something to write about everyday so little breaks like this are very much appreciated.

My dear friend Danifred tagged me on on this questionnaire and I have to give her and her blog a shout out of thanks. Reading her blog helped me refocus my priorities and helped me find my way out of a very fogging time in my life. Plus I just enjoy reading her funny stories about her kids.

So here it goes….

First, the rules:
1. Mention person who tagged me (Hi Danifred!)
2. Complete the list of 8s
3. Tag 8 people

And, I’ve decided to be a copy cat so I'll be adding in some of G’s, Seena’s, maybe AJ’s, and Teen’s (if I can find her) answers too.

And, without further ado, the lists:
