A Lazy Meme?

I was feeling lazy this morning - cloudy morning, throw some cereal on the table, and stare at the computer, lazy. I really wasn't even sure I could muster enough energy to blog, today. I barely managed to move the mouse over, and click on a few of my favorite blogs, to read.

So, I was more than happy to find Ticia, over at Adventures in Mommydom, linking in with a Lazy Meme hosted at Making Home. The original post is nearly a month old, but still seems to be open to join in - so why not? Really, a Lazy Meme, what could be more perfect for today, than that!?!

I am SO doing this. I'm totally lazy today too. I blame the trip to the grocery store.

I'm so lazy today I couldn't even read the whole list!

You've never been stung by a bee!? How is that possible?


An Almost Unschooling Mom said...

mrana - Just lucky I guess :)

Christy Killoran said...

Also lucky that you have never had food poisoning!

Amy said...

I played along too:

Natalie PlanetSmarty said...

So I am dying to know - what was the job that you've been fired from?

An Almost Unschooling Mom said...

Natalie - Ha, ha! I was 15 and working as a maid in a podunk motel - apparently, I cleaned too slowly :) Worked out great though, because they fired me the day all my friends were leaving for summer camp, so I ran home, packed a bag, and my mother drove me up to the camp, just in time.

I'm loving reading these! It totally rocks.

Sigh, I can no longer say I haven't been stung by a bee. Stupid bee last night, and then I almost had 2 more sting me today. So cruel.
