Did You Know Tuesday...Enter at Your Own Risk Edition...

Back in the old days last year, I made up a bloggy thing called "Did You Know? Tuesday"...It was my very lame and lazy attempt to write a bunch of stuff and pass it off as a post...oops...did I type that out loud???  I meant to say that it was my brilliant way to creatively write snippets of thoughts into one tidy post.  So dear readers, today I bestow upon you the return of "Did You Know? Tuesday" in all it's golden witty splendor....that's right...prepared to be (bored silly and yawning in about 30 seconds...) DaZzLeD!....Ready...set...Go!  

that my 7 year old daughter received a job promotion today?  That's right!  She was promoted from "Pack Mule" to "Roadie" for doing such a bang up job carrying her brother's guitar gear to his lesson.  Bravo, Teen Caveboy for offering up such a worthy promotion! (and for promoting child labor...good on you!  High fives all around! That's my boy!)

Did You Know...
that my home is about to become (hell on earth) a wee bit tense due to the appearance of this (starts with a "B" and ends with "itch")  lovely creature...(I know...you've seen her here before)....All I can say is "Run for your lives, people of Tucson...Run as fast as you can!" (I'll understand if you're too afraid to read further....)
Attn: Chilly (the hubs)...if you even try to talk to me this morning, I promise this is what you're gonna get...


Just back quietly out of the kitchen and run as fast as those swollen feet will let ya....The kids have already made their way into the fallout shelter...

Did You Know...
that I was terrified of Witch Hazel when I was a wee girl?


I also had nightmares about Bugs in this costume...I'm not kidding! Completely freaked me out! 

Did You Know...
that I'm absolutely crazy about hat boxes...especially vintage ones?


Did You Know...
that we have a Kissing Bug epidemic in Arizona? I know...sounds so cute, huh?  These evil creatures can bite you and then infect you with a disease that won't show up until 10-20 years later!  A very bad "I can kill you" kind of disease! WHAT???  What the heck?  Aren't rattlesnakes and scorpions enough torture for us in AZ?????  Welcome to our nightmare...


Did You Know...
that something amazing happened to me?  Well, smack my bottom and color me surprised!  I won a giveaway!!!  That's right! I am the proud new owner of an $80 CSN gift certificate thanks to Mr. Fabulous himself...Otin...or more properly known as Wizard of Otin.  Not only is Otin a spinner of tales, he also has a very generous and kind heart.  Thank you, kind sir, for the winnings! Now get on over there and grace him with your presence!


Did You Know...
that I'm thrilled to be back to blogging and connecting with you all again!!???
Wishing you all a lovely day!

xoxo
