If you can’t say anything nice….

….blog about something random.  There’s some life-changing decisions being made (no, I’m not pregnant) and I’d REALLY like to blog about it.  I know the prudent thing to do is keep quiet until all is settled and decided.  Also, my little sister is having her first baby right now in a hospital several hours away.  I wish I could be there, but with Atticus/nursing it isn’t really practical for me to make a trip.  I’m nervous and excited for her.

So since mum’s the word on all the thoughts assaulting my brain I thought I’d do something random.  I saw this meme on Facebook (in fact I think I told people I’d participate and I never did).
