A to Z, Redux
My apologies to Geekwif. She told me about this idea and that she wanted to do it soon. I had planned on doing a different, much longer post tonight, but it's late and I want, want, want and need to go to bed, so I am taking the easy way out. I would feel guilty, except read her post on June 26, "You are So Jealous". My best friend went to Ikea without me. I promised that I would take no physical retribution, but I did not promise I would not steal her blog ideas. Therefore, I give you the ABC's.
I took this from Blog, blah, blah. Thank you, Heather Nicole.
