Good stuff.

I had myself a little giggle or two while working on this post...
A message popped up in my inbox telling me that
Angela had posted to her blog
soo.. I clicked over there to check it out..
and after reading
it was once again apparent to me why we
make great friends for each other...
she has a thing for losing computer mice
(or mouses or whatever the plural is)
I on the other hand never lose my mouse...
but have a problem with
just last week, I locked my ONLY truck key in said truck.
(I've only done it about 4 times in the past year.. ok.. so maybe that IS alot)
was rescued... lectured..
told to get more keys made..
yada yada yada
oh yes. yep. I will get right on that!
I cheerfully said to my annoyed husband...
but did I do it.. NOPE.
Lesson Learned.
I lost my keys.
Less than a week later..
to make a LONG story short..
Lucky for me they were
 IN the truck..
in my purse that I decided not to take with me.
{it was an honest mistake! honest!}

So.. Angela.. I won't ever give you the
because that would be downright hypocritical of me...
