8 places I have lived

  1. I got tagged recently with a similar 8. The tag I got tagged with was "Crazy Eights I've been tagged" (I made my post in April). Anyway, the tag I had included 8 things I'm looking forward too, 8 things I did yesterday, 8 things I wish I could do, 8 shows I watch, Then my 8 tags. I wonder which "tag" was first? Did someone add to it? Or reduce it? hmmmm interesting!
