  1. Hmmm, does anyone know why my numbered lists end up with little flowers instead of numbers, even though I'm using the numbered list feature in blogger?

  2. Honey,

    I would use .doc and then publish to make sure the characters you want stay the same. I like your list, except I wasn't the first but the second but nontheless, I love you for then anything. Also, maybe one day, keep praying I win the lottery or die so you can have some of your wish list.

  3. Jeff, Oh, please, I'm not going pray for you to die. Ugh! I didn't think of the lists as prioritizing the items from best to least, so it doesn't matter that you're second. I love you more than anything, too.

  4. Just want you to know that you and DH are in my prayers...I don't know why people are handed the rows to hoe that they are but I always admire the folks who take on their challenges with humor and grace. A list of things you love (in no particular order) just demonstrates your ability to focus on the positive even in dark times; we all need to do that sort of "taking stock" every once in a while. You go, girl.

  5. Bestest Thai in the area is within two miles of my house. Seriously. And no one is ever there. One day.... we could eat together. Seriously.

  6. I loved it that you enjoy going on dates with DH and taking kids to the library

    mmm I love Thai too- can I join you guys???

  7. Honey, can we work on the bikini part . . .MMMMMM

  8. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

    Well... I'm going to take up the sword (Eph. 6:17). Pray for me!

  9. It's the template. The bullets become the flowers on the sides of the page.
