Odd Things About Me

,

I’m a sucker. I’m a sucker for every little survey or quiz found on Facebook. Resist? Never. Resistance is futile (yes, I’m a geek).

It’s been pure craziness for the last 24 hours (or so) in my house. I heard that lice made life hell for parents, but I had no idea until now. I’m still not done laundering EVERYTHING.
