I like that. But good grief, what kind of a question is #22?

I don't know that I remember reading about the Disney vacation, did I miss posts, not have you on my radar yet? I'm going to have to go back through the archives.

My neighbor made some crack about teenagers being the wonder years, "you wonder how you'll get through it." Hang on and New Year Blessings!

I love this list!!
So cool- I did #9 too I am so mad at myself.
You have to try to come to the blog party this year. I am going to try to be there. Of course, it's a lot easier for me to just drive there. It would be so great if you came!!!!

Cool List, but I am with Carlo. I was trying to answer these in my head, and I think it would also take me til 2009, maybe 2010!
Happy New Year!
