  1. Good list! Mine would probably be very similar! I have driving issues too, read a book on Angels, said to look at someone pulling out in front of me as an Angel trying to save me from an accident. I don't know how but it does seem to work - at times, lol.

  2. Sounds like a lot but you are super woman and can totally pull it off! I just need to spend less time on this dang computer! LOL
