Filed under: Disney,Meme — by bethc @ 10:45 am

Since I am teaching squares and square roots today it seemed a good time to get around to answering the tag from Knitting Mom. I found this remarkably hard. I find I have strong opinions about a few things and hardly any opinions on other things. (Note: within each category the order is random!)

7 by 7 meme.

Seven things to do before I die:

1. Stay at the Ice Hotel

2. Cruise the Panama Canal

3. Have a clean, organized house

4. Go to Trinidad for Carnival

5. Dance at Bunny’s wedding (or commitment cerimony or whatever)

6. Spoil a grandchild

7. Sleep in Cinderella’s Castle

Seven things I cannot do:

1. Touch my toes (without bending my knees)

2. Place commas correctly

3. Remember names quickly
