Did/Did Not/Kinda

My sister sent me this meme and I figured I would play too. (And the fact that my life is boring and I have nothing else to talk about helps too.)

Want to play along? The basic premise is that you highlight what you have done, italicize what you kinda did and just leave the stuff you didn't do alone.

I did this.
I didn't do this.
I kinda did this.

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
