And sleek & red too

I’m a Chevrolet Corvette!

You’re a classic – powerful, athletic, and competitive. You’re all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

This is really funny because my first car was a Chevrolet Cavalier that I drove into the ground. (Literally. We eventually had it towed from the front yard.)

A quiz to keep my homeschooling status

I took the Overachieving Homeschooler’s Quiz and got a 24, which means:

Not even close! Your fellow homeschoolers adore you. We all need to know that, at the end of the day, we could have done a lot worse.

Heh. So feel good about yourselves. I do! 😀

(p.s. – that was a really funny quiz.)

You Are Socks!


Cozy and warm… but easily lost.
You make a good puppet.

Heh. We have a lot of Christmas stories involving socks.
