new post...........
OMG girls it is safe to say I have discovered something odd about my self.........the amount of power boards I have in this house.........I have collected 7 up and serioiusly still have more that Mr Chooky might get a bit upset about if I take - like the ones that make his life function AKA the TV one.......and I am sure there are more...........power cords I knew i had quite a few but boards.........wow.........
also in my hunting around I have a serious snap lock bag issue too...great for EPP pieces but maybe a little excessive number of boxes of them.........
OMG 2 sleeps for most of you.........1 more sleep and Sonia and I will be putting the final touches on.......getting the room ready for you all.......
travel safe if I am not back here......OMG i'm excited........
