I'm a mom who tends to live just to the "left" of most of the people around me here in Indiana.

Happy New Year 2008

About 5 years ago, my family started a new tradition as part of our annual New Year's Eve family celebration. We have the following survey saved on computer. Each year I print out a copy for each family member and we fill it out. We've kept the surveys in a binder and it is fun to see how we've all evolved over time. Anyway, I thought I'd post on my neglected blog and wish all my readers a Happy 2008 by sharing this year's survey with you. I do have to note that our home version includes spaces for "height" and "weight" (particularly interesting for growing kids and dieting parents), but I'm leaving those categories off my online survey. Feel free to steal my format for your own blogs if you wish.
