Welcome, SITStas!

Welcome SITStas! I'm so excited to have you all visiting today, and I hope have fun poking around. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to clean more, but I'm still walking around one-handed. I wa planning to cook a whole feast for you, especially this new guacamole recipe I found is my current favorite.

At least I have the two wee ones -- Mister Man and Little Miss off to school, so it's a little quieter around here right now. They tend to entertain me. And drive me nuts. Then again, so does work, and yes, I'm working today, so it might take me awhile to get back to all your lovely, beautiful comments.

I've got a lot of posts out there, from my very first one where I found out why you want to change your water filter to more current ones reminiscing about my pets and learning about knife safety.

If you really want to make my day, come on back soon (or just you know, make it easy on yourself and boost my ego by following me...). I hope you enjoyed your visit!

In all seriousness though, if you are able to donate blood, please go donate now. Because of the weather and company layoffs, blood banks are way down on usual donations and are particularly short on O neg and B neg. Elective surgeries are being pushed back, and they are praying for no traumas. Find where you can donate near you (800 GIVE LIFE -- 800 448 3543), and make a difference! In fact, Manic Mommy's having a blood drive contest right now where you can actually win a six day vacation to Sandestin in Florida, among other great prizes. What more motivation do you need?

Congrats on being featured!!! Cute blog!

Great for you passing on that serious info!!! I didn't know that stuff! That's awful! I don't know what blood type I am either... I've always been limited on when I can donate due to getting tattoos too soon or something.

Anyway, cute blog!

Can't wait to take a look around your blog...

I'd LOVE to help out with the blood donation, but they won't let me...I don't weigh enough :(
Why is it always that way for someone who isn't too squeamish to give a pint or two???

Congrats on your feature day. I love your dinner post. It made me laugh. I just may have to count at dinner today. A Couple of mine are older, so now I let them do some of the fetching....

Your post about Moms doing for themselves is also great advice. Thanks for the reminder...

My toddler daughter also has a tendency to place underwear on her head. I just don't get it...
