1. Just cross that bridge, Midge.
2. Hop in the van, Ann.
2. Go take his camper, Amber.
3. Just walk out the door, Lenore.
4. Make sure to pack a suitcase, Stace.
5. Get in a plane and fly, Skye.
6. Walk out the back gate, Kate.
7. Take the kids with you, Lu Lu.
8. Set the stage, Paige.
9. Join a harem, Karen.
10. Do it if you dare, Claire.
11. Shoot yourself out of a cannon, Shannon.
12. Don't think about death, Beth.
13. Just get yourself free, Leigh.
tee hee! Just some silliness for today.

1. a place to live, whether rent or mortgage
3. natural gas and water usage
5. Internet (can't live without it!)
6. Cable or dish service
8. car insurance
10. health insurance and monthly health costs
12. education expenses for the kids (supplies, music, etc.)
13. entertainment, clothing, or necesities.
What am I forgetting? Anyone know a part time job a mom with two kids and a full time job could get that would actually be worthwhile?
Visit Thursday-13 here!
And, no, I'm not moving out right now. But I've been considering it for almost a year, so I'm starting to realize it's inevitable, so I better make some plans. It's hard!

I didn't get to participate in the first one, but I had a blast filling a package of MY favorite things for the second one, and I got some great things from my partner, too. It's so fun to give and receive good mail. I've got to put my thinking cap on to come up with some different ideas. Hmmm... what, excactly ARE my favorite things?

Her blog is called My Life is Based on a True Story. I love that name! She blogs about a variety of subjects... her two children, movies, and her pets: a dog (Belgian Malinois), 2 cats (nothing fancy), lizard (bearded dragon), and a hedgehog. She's a great facebook friend and a FIRL (friend in real life) now since we actually got to meet in person a few months ago. I hope you'll hop over and visit her blog if you haven't already had the pleasure. And "D," this is for you!
