Congrats on the one year and 100 posts! I read all of your 100 things, and found I have much in common!

The blankie - I still have mine, and I still sleep with it and two stuffed bears.

Little Ms Blogger said...

OMG ...that was hysterical.

I understand why you think life is more important than work also being a cancer survivor.

Congrats on the 100 posts and one year anniversary. I think that may be longer than some people's marriages.
