CityStreams tagged me for a meme. The history of this meme, according to CS, means that I am in the big leagues of blogging. Thank you for the compliment CS – back at ya! So here is my take on this, followed by the people I will tag.
What were you doing ten years ago?
In the spring of 1998 I was attending a community college after leaving pharmacy school. I finally had the guts to say I hated it there and wanted to follow my dream of teaching. I took that semester to fix a class that I needed to help me switch career paths and schools for the fall of ’98.
What are five things on your to-do list?
1. Get some sleep.
2. Finish shopping for items for JSL’s 1st birthday party on Sunday.
3. Purchase a gift for Mimi (my grandmother) to give to give to JSL.
4. Make Mother’s Day cards – the ones at the store were picked over weeks ago.
5. Find time to knit and read. . . and do the other 20 items on my to-do list!
What are five snacks you enjoy?
1. Graham crackers and low fat whipped cream 2. Cheese sticks 3. Trail mix 4. Yogurt 5. Granola bars (love the cherry and dark chocolate ones by Kashi).
Name some things you would do if you were a millionaire.
Pay off loans, buy a larger house in a better school district, help family fix up their house, get JL a new car, bring our entire family on a Disney World vacation (including a cruise) and invest for the future. The investing and saving for the boys for college is a must.
Name some places you have lived.
I have only lived in three places – 1. With my parents at their house. 2. Apartment that JL and I had when we were first married. 3. The small little house that we are currently living in.
Name some bad habits you have.
I am not good at making decisions. In addition to this I am able to live among the world of clutter that is my house. It is very organized clutter, but clutter. We are working on this because it is starting to become an issue when we want to have people over.
Name some jobs you have had.
I worked at my father’s baseball card store, pharmacy technician, cashier at a grocery store, test corrector for an educational company, assistant manager at a teacher store, and teacher.
Name those whom you are tagging.
Laura, Renee, and Elaine. I would list a bunch of others, but my brain is fried and I must go and attempt to cross #1 off my to-do list. Please know I have a ton of others that I would include – so if you want to consider yourself tagged. Please leave a comment here if you participate so I can be sure to read.
