Here is a fun test for you...My car is back!

Hello all in J-Land!  My car is finished!  Yay!  I get to get back on the road!  No more mooching rides!  Freedom again!

                                                               !     Chelsea had such a hard time not having a car.  I am sure she is happy as a clam!  She has two jobs to get to, so I am sure she is happier than I am!  I got a call from Krissy last night.  She is back in town and very, very tired.  I don't know if she will be updating her journal for a few days so I wanted everyone to know that she is doing well.  She is very glad to be in her own bed.  John is sick with bronchitis and had to go to the emergency room while he was in Ohio.  He is feeling better, though.  It is always nice to be back in your own bed.

I got an interesting test from my sweet sister-in-law, Shawn, this morning and thought it was interesting.  I was wondering how observant everyone was.  I missed three.  She missed only one.  The person who sent it to her only got six right!  Interesting.  Some of us pay attention to detail and some of us don't.  Let's see how well you do...Here it is...Go ahead and try it and let me know how you do!  Have fun and be honest!

Hope you all enjoyed taking that test!  I had a lot of tun with it.  I realize that some of you in the U.K.might have trouble with a few of the questions....Do you have Campbell's soup over there?  Hmmm..... 

It is still raining and icing outside.  When will this wintery mix stop?  Is it raining and snowing everywhere else?  Well, I think I will go talk to my sister as I see she is on the computer now.  Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

    My friend and her husband have four cars and they are down to one they are sharing. Using the new van but still have the old van, mom borrowed the truck because her car was damaged in an accident and their fourth car is a summer car so not rain proof.

    Anyway my husband and I took the test together and we only missed four. Fun test!

    Have a great day. It's not supposed to rain on us today.

    Great test! God Bless

  9. I know you are glad to have your car back. I will definitely have to take this test I read a few of the questions and it seems really interesting.

    I also had been wondering about Krissy and I'm so glad she's back.  I've missed her.  

  11. Glad you have your car back.  Glad to be back from Ohio.

  12. YAY for getting the car back!  I'm glad to hear Krissy is back, she's been missed here.  I can only imagine how much you must have missed her.  I've seen the test before and I did pretty good but, I remembered a lot of those answers ~ not fair, huh?


  13. Good news about your car.  I know you are happy!

    We are very warm here.  No snow or ice in sight. But, this weekend we will be back below freezing.  Yep, winter is back.
