That's 58 for me. I was close to some others--like, I've been to Venice, but was too cheap to pay for a gondola ride. And I've been to the Great Salt Lake many times, but there is no way I am going to let that water touch my nearly-naked body. Yuck!

Anyway, it was fun. Who says a woman has to give up everything to be a homemaker? I've done lots of exciting things!

Which ones have you done?

The two that struck my interest: hitch hiked and fired from a job. Do tell...

Tracy said...

Fun! I didn't know you had been fired from a job. You seem so responsible. You've done a lot more than I have, you fun girl!

Mendy said...

FIRED FROM A JOB: My friend and I used to clean her husband's office on the weekends. He didn't own it, but he worked there. Anyway, we did it for about a year and a half and one day she had the unpleasant task of telling me that her husband didn't want to share that extra money with me anymore. He wanted to do it with his wife so they could keep all the extra money in their family. She was so nervous to tell me, but I was fine with it because I was getting ready to have another baby. We laugh about it to this day--how her hubby fired me!

Brenda said...
