Yeah, I'm phoning it in. **Sorry**

Okay, so I've been sofa bound all week for some high blood pressure issues. Let me say, I missed out on the 1960s so seeing flashing spots and blurred vision because of an ultra-high BP yesterday was about as close as I got to the whole hallucinogenic trippy experience. I don't long to experience it again.

Not too much exciting or inspiring happens when you're stuck on the couch, so I've decided to cop out and finish out the week with a Meme. Forgive me for not coming up with something more original. I promise to do better next week!

Technically I'm supposed to tag someone, so I'm tagging all of you. You copy the list and bold the things you've actually done. Leave me a link in the comments if you do it so I can come by and read all about the things you've done!

I responded to your tag.
You have a good bit more than me. :)

Hope your blood pressure comes down and you don't have to stay on bed rest.
Tell the girls I said hello.

Thank you SO much for giving me inspiration today. I needed to phone it in too. I participated at:

BTW - I, too, was fired from a job by a parent. I was fired from my Dad's company where I worked as a receptionist (at age 16). Something about "undermining authority"...

Feel better!
