Mopey Monday!

Is it just me, or does it happen to the rest of you that at the point in time that you most need a daily planner to get things done, you don't have the time to put all the things in it, not even the things you've done to have a checked off "Look what I did" list. I do love a checked off list.

Anyway, that's what finds me writing Monday's post on Friday afternoon. The fact that I know I'll never find the time for it over the weekend and Monday will be more hectic.

Big Buddy - Folks should be at 43% today! How are you all doing?

Flash Challenge - "To Do List" Maybe someone puts "Tie shoes" so that they can check something off, or maybe "World Peace" just so someone else can't check off everything. Give me a hundred words or a graphic and I'll rave about how awesome you are!

Crossover Challenge has begun!!! Head on over and look at all the fun to be created! What are you going to do for it?

And this week's posts have been:
Nostrum - Torrid Tuesday - Cruciverbalist - Alma Mater - I - Gorgonize - Thursday Tropes - Weekend Challenge


Anything since Monday at 1PM EST will have to be found on your own. HAVE A CREATIVE WEEK!!!
