Eight Things I Say Often
Fooheart (This is my official swear word.)

I'll have another coffee.
I better not. (As in have another coffee.)
It is my turn on the computer. (Our desktop is no longer an option so Colin and I must share the laptop.)
Strawberry says, "Guess what?" I answer, "What?" She replies, "Nothing." We giggle.
You can have a treat after supper.
It's not sorcery. (I don't really say this but my coworker is trying to make this popular.)

Spend time with good friends
Continue to learn about life
Have a clean house for more than one day in a row

Eight Things I Learned In the Past Year

I am not the risk taker that I once was.
I need to do more for the environment.
That routine bores me silly.
That time is escaping me.
That procrastination is making me feel guilty.
I should be learning something.
Britney Spears needs some serious help.

I am guessing the eighth question is where I am supposed include eight bloggers to harass tag. Instead ask me a question in the comments. I'll answer it tomorrow with a link back to you!
