Day 1
Your earliest memory

I do not really know what my earliest memory would be but I have lots of fond memories from my childhood. I kind of remember when my brother was born because I had to go to my Grandma Mayberry's house and I got to watch The Wizard of Oz. Another fond memory is sitting on the porch helping my Uncle Craig shelling walnuts and his goose chasing me and "goosing me". Oh and there was the time the drunk indian came to our house and made my mom cry. There was the time that my mom was working and my Uncle David was working and I cut my leg taking the garbage out. When I was in kindergarten I got in trouble from my teacher because I was having trouble tying my shoes so she sent me to another teacher so she could deal with me. These were all memories of when I lived in Nebraska and all before second grade.

It's been awhile...

It has been awhile since I have blogged on here. I always say I want to get back to blogging but like a lot of good intentions it does not happen. For me I always end up spending my spare time reading instead of doing all the other things I talk about. So this time I am going to start small and participate in the Listers Gotta List with The Reset Girl. To join in on your own here is the link to her website . You can also connect with her and many other listers on her Facebook page. Since this is the 4th of July I am going to play a little catch up and post the first four days worth of lists.
