before i go....

i am off to see my baby sister in Oregon, in a few hours!
i can't WAIT to be off the clock!
if you have kids, i am sure you know what the week before this departure day has looked like, so i won't bore you with the details of the chaos.
i am finally going.
but before i do, i am sending a special lady a bell that matches mine.
i think it is a fair assumption that she may even need it more than i do.
she has five kids and one is a teenager, so you tell me.
i am sure you all are just as inspired by Meg as i am.
and if you have SOMEHOW missed her blog, Whatever, after all the times i have used her ideas and linked to her, you can go look now, by clicking here.

one more thing.
meg and i want to name our bells!
don't you want to help us think of a good couple to name them after?
we have thrown around Lucy and Ethel, Cheech and Chong, Thelma and Louise.....
what do you think?
Beauty and the Beast?
come on, people, throw some at me....


  1. Love Meg she's awesome. For your bells what about
    Laverne & Shirley

  2. Laverne & Shirley...Mork & Mindy.. : )

  7. what about favorite guy character's names. as in, "You can ring MY bell, Mr. Darcy..." OR what about Maria, because nobody solves a problem like Maria. Or I also like something contrasting and along the country mouse and city mouse theme. so many good ideas going on above too!
