Thanks A Lot, Carly!

Well, I read Carly’s Blog (Just Carly) and she tagged me. Apparently this is a game a bunch of blog-writing ladies play. They make up lists of things, tag each other and then the tagged lady must complete the list on her blog. Since I am home all day, I think Carly has made me an honorary blog-writing lady. She actually tagged me twice before. Once last November but I pretended I didn’t see it and I have felt guilty ever since. Is that a sin? Is it a lie if I didn’t actually tell her I didn’t see it? The other time was back in October and I really didn’t see that. I did a search of “John” on her blog and found it. So no guilt and no sin involved in that one. But now I have seen all three. In fact, I was going to ignore them again, but I might be awake all night worrying. Carly goes to my church, even though I have not met her yet, and she makes nice comments on this blog. Perhaps I have subconsciously avoided meeting her because I am feeling so guilty for not completing the tag lists. Guilt may negatively affect one’s immune system. I don’t know that for sure, but I can’t take anymore chances. So, Carly, here are my answers from the latest tag and also from the two tags last year. I am doing this so I can sleep at night.

8 People I tag to do this on their blog:
I’m not spreading the guilt this time

From when I was tagged last October:

Carly tagged me to blog about my hubby's favorite things. so here goes...
Umm, umm, umm, I was in the military. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

OH, OH, I just read the rules of this tagging business:
The rules are:
1. Mention the person(s) that tagged you. (I was tagged by Carly)
2. Complete the lists of 8's.
3. Tag 8 other bloggers.
4. Tell them they have been tagged.

Look at rule #4. Carly didn’t tell me! I bet she tagged a different John. John Smith, or John Doe or John McCain. Good grief. I probably wasn’t Tagged!!!!! All those months of feeling guilty for nothing. Well, after all this work I am posting it anyway. And I won't need to avoid Carly at church.

If it is any consolation, I don't ever worry about who does or doesn't act upon their tag.
Your blogs are always so entertaining, so you've accomplished one of your 8's.
I still look for you in church, but our class usually gets out late so we hardly see anyone in passing on Sundays mornings.

No harm done, I take pretty much everything in good fun. No strong titles today. :)
