What a fun post! I love all your goals! Give me a call when you go in to have your varicose veins fixed -- I'll go with you! I can't figure out how childbearing, obviously being a part of God's plan for humanity, can reek such absolute havoc on the human body! (maybe it was part of the curse.)

This is a fun post! Are you going to let us know when you accomplish something on it?

I Loved your goal list! Thanks for your 108th goal you did last night to us! Your words of encouragement meant a lot! :)

It wouldn't allow me to post on your newest post...so, I'll post on this one!

LOL, I too will go with you to have your legs done! Delilah, I agree with you about childbearing. I never had a stretch mark (still don't) or vein problem. Then....we moved while I prego and the veins on my left leg started looking all weird. So, I made a doctor appointment because I thought I had blood poisoning. I was really worried. He Laughed at me and told me that I had a bad case of varicose veins and I started crying. Well, I got to wear those long, white, tight socks all the rest of Nora's pregnancy! :)

You seriously crack me up. Your blog has inspired me to laugh and think on quite a few occasions (and I only check in on it from time to time.) You should definitely work on that memoir!

Careful what you ask for, though, about the veins! I had spider veins treated by a friend of mine who is a sadist surgeon and IT WAS HORRIBLE. I'll live with the injury to my vanity from now on!
