Sunday Stealing

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Tattooed Minivan Mom from the blog The Scattered Mind of a Tattooed Minivan Mom. She explains that she got it from Janana Bee. It appears Jana might have actually written this meme. But, it could have stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time.

Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser.

It's been a while since we had to post rules. But here we will list the relevent ones:

*Think back to ten years ago on this month.
*Write truthful answers and ELABORATE. This makes it more interesting!
*If you don't have a scanner you may omit #14 but I think if you do you should totally do it!
*It's about personal changes. Have fun with it!

  1. ANNIE, there's no room for regrets where it concerns our health. wow, you must be one cool grandma. happy sunday!

  2. What at great grandmother and mother to boot. And your own business. You done well mu friend.

  3. If I've learned anything when it comes to health issues, it's that we need to pay attention to what our body tells us and to listen to the concerns of others. You can't go back, but you sure can move forward at full speed!

    My daughter got married in January, so I'm waiting for my turn to be a grandmother. Maybe next year. . .

  4. You seem very happy and well adjusted. But I'm not really surprised! Happy Sunday, Annie...
