    I can relate to your list very well… We all have those days and times. The only one I haven’t done yet is #1 (maybe because I’m not 40 yet), we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Visiting from Mama Kat’s

  4. Do you want to know why I really LOVE you? Because you are brutally honest. I try to be… but – sometimes I still feel fake. IF I would have chosen that prompt – I could have posted almost all the things you did (except botox… but if we hit powerball. I’m lyposuctioning my entire body)… I just don’t want to admit them. *sigh* I hate admitting that I’ve done some things I wish I hadn’t. Today I football carried Addison to the table at Red Robin. Doesn’t sound so bad? Except it was upside down. Anyway – Love your list. Love how honest you always are.

    btw… baby boy cooed at me tonight. First time since he’s been sick. And I’m LOVIN’ it too!!! Just thought I’d let you know. Kristen

  5. Count me as another fan of honesty. Love women (and men) who don’t try to fake it. We’ve all done something and you go a long way towards banishing paralyzing, depressing guilt.
