Glad to know I've been influential!  :)
Comment #17:
You're supposed to clean the shower?!  

Congrats to P (hopefully a little Cheer will help with your "Blahs"), if you haven't checked out her blog yet you should, she totally rocks, & E Rostron (I don't think she has a blog, I'm going to feel sooo bad if I'm wrong).  Send me an email with your shipping info and we'll get you on your way to doing laundry for free... well at least using some free detergent. (  And if for some reason, either one of these two fail to claim their prize, I'll be looking down the list to #4 and so on...

As to everyone else, thanks for entering.  Welcome, to my new followers... chances are I've already been stalking your blogs, hopefully I'll actually comment soon.

Now, it's off to get things ready so that we can get out of here this afternoon.  I hope everyone has an incredibly fun Christmas and a nice relaxing weekend with a fair amount of running sprinkled in.

Hmmmm....the guilt of not cleaning our shower in over a month is consuming me right now.
Have a great trip. I hope the weather cooperates. No matter what, you are going to have some awesome and/or memorable memories.

So stop procrastinating and get packing! ;-)
I think this yurt thing is going to be so fun.
AND, I saw what you gave Beth for the gift exchange. OMG - SO JEALOUS!! I've been eyeballing those Pre necklaces for a year. I decided if I don't get one for Christmas after all of my obvious hinting, I'm just getting it for myself. I really want to have it on when I do my first 1/2!

Have a fabulous Christmas!

You have a lot to do in 7 hours! Good luck!

P said...

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Totally cured of my blahs now, thanks!
I hope you have fun yurtin' (it really sounds more adventurous and exciting when you leave off that final "g" doesn't it?)
Merry, merry Christmas my friend!
