April Barber said...

I like you! I laughed out loud on some of these and said "Really" out loud a couple of times (#6?). I'll try not to ever ask you to babysit! :)

Amanda said...

Jorja - I do it sometimes, too. Therefore, I occasionally get on my own nerves. Thanks for inspiring the list!

April - Yes to number six. For about a year and a half. And I didn't say I DON'T babysit ... I just don't prefer it. But I do prefer getting paid when I am poor. :)
