So I was driving in the minivan on my way to work, listening to the Radio From Hell morning show on X96 as I do every morning. They were talking about a shopping Bingo that a Friend of the Program had sent to them. I thought it hilarious and wanted to share with all.

Now, as you read through the BINGO, keep in mind your most recent shopping trip.

I got this card courtesy of So get a card, make copies, give to friends and family, go shopping. Happy Hunting!

I am a list maker.

I enjoy making the grocery list. I even make it in the order of the aisles I will visit.

In October I am already anxious to make a Christmas Wish List.

During the summer I make lists of what to pack for vacations, or camping trips. Already I've been making lists of what we need for our trip to Wyoming for Thanksgiving.

At my brother's first wedding in Vegas, I had made a list of all the free stuff there is to do to keep us busy. I just wanted a plan, because I didn't want to sit around Vegas going, "What do you wanna do?"

Now, my mom posted on her blog about making a list of things she wants to have happen at her funeral. I haven't gone that far...

I remember as a young girl making lists of baby names for future children (I still make lists of names that I would like to have given to babies).

I make lists of things I want in a dream house. I've collected floor plans. I've saved clippings of items and styles that I like.

You'd think that I was so organized and goal accomplishing and such. The problem is, I make the lists or plan, but I don't always work the plan. That is something I need to work on. We all have our strengths and we all have areas that need strengthening.

Do you ever have those blah days? You aren't sick. It's not that particular "time" where your emotions run wild. Nothing is going on in your life (or so you think) where you are stressed or depressed. And yet, you just feel blah. For me, I feel kind of tired and apathetic.

I get these kinds of days now and again. My husband will ask, "What's wrong?" My answer is the typical "Nothing". Because there is nothing wrong. I'm not sick, it's not pms, I didn't stay up all night so I'm not tired. I didn't have a stressful, harrowing day. Nothing major happened to get me upset or depressed. But all I feel like doing is lay on the couch and watch tv.

I just say that I feel "blah". There isn't really anything to explain it. Maybe I just need a mental health day. Am I alone in having these kinds of days? Do I need to seek professional help? Is it chronic fatique? Epstein's Bar? Depression? Stress? Who knows.

Well, as I told my sister on her blog, "Ice cream makes it all better". (Which reminds me that it is the season for my favorite kind, Peppermint Ice Cream)
