I've been tagged. Twice in the same day, it would seem. By both Sara at Balancing Act and Kris from Reflections by Kris.

Ah, friends, what would I do without them?

The rules:
1. Post the rules of the game at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Umm, would you believe that I have absolutely no idea?
Let's see. The girls were 10 and 7 years old. And I, no doubt, was running around in circles pulling my hair out. Working part-time at two different jobs, one for a lawyer and the second for the Barristers' Library. Other than that, I have nary a clue.
