Yes it's a meme...

and I don't like to participate but my blogging is SO weak lately so here we go. I was tagged by Betmo

One: What was I doing ten years ago?

I would have been in the thick of raising my family. Two teens, 12 and 13, and 8 year old and a 5 year old. Volunteering my ass off and on the verge of change OR a nervous breakdown. Thank goodness it was change that was just around the corner. Although come to think of it there were probably a couple mini breakdowns.

Two: Five things on today's to-do list.

Workout. (Done)

Shower and wash hair for awards night. (Done. Only realized later the awards are tomorrow so I didn't actually have to wash my hair today. dammit.)

Deliver tiles. (Done. She loved them!)

Pick up a few more plants. (Done)

Find someone to pick up pizza for dinner. (Still looking)

Three: Things I'd do if I were a Billionaire.

Pay for all the kids to go to school.

Move my house by the water and add a huge screened porch.

Buy a place in the city.

(Can I please have one more?)
Take Carla on a bad-ass dream vacation for her 40th!

Four: Three bad habits?

Curse like a sailor. (Not proud. Trying to quit but it's harder than quitting smoking.)

Sugar. (also trying to quit this)

Sun worshipper. Not trying to quit.

Five places I have lived

This is embarrassing...
Denver for like a minute 'cause I was born there.
Bowie Maryland
Gaithersburg Maryland
Ocean City Maryland
Bishopville Maryland
Ugh! That is so boring!!!!!

Five Jobs

Gift Wrapper
Store Manager
Potters Asst.
Office Manager
Stellar list, I know.

I am tagging (oh yes I am)
Just Me

Come on, cursing like a sailor bad? Guess only I would think thats good. Cursing lets the rage out without...well...letting the rage out.

Anybody that gets four out of five things on a to do list done in one freakin' day can't be trusted.:)

This was fun! So glad it was change for you 10-yrs ago, not an NB! I got tagged for this meme, too, and am noticing a common theme in the "jobs". Almost everyone I see, no matter what they are doing today, has tried waitressing!

BB- I have to agree. I do like to let my rage out.

E4E- Billionaire was def my fav too. There's alot more I'd do. Especiallyto my home. I'd go off on my garden and convert my house completely to a green home which Betmo said she would do on her meme. Oh I could go on and on.

TUA- I know. I was cooking yesterday wasn't I.

D.K- Speaking of people you can't trust...I don't think you can trust someone who has never work in a restaurant in some capacity.

Ah but I lived in the DC area and as the Beltway Bastard will tell you the traffic around that area AND the people will get you cursing in no time.

Yikes! I've been tagged. I'll have to pass, too much on my plate right now.

Terrific answers. Good thing I briefly worked in a restaurant kitchen. Trust me.

Quitting sugar is futile. It's everywhere and in everything. Even hamburger buns. (Check the package). As for weak blogging, I have you beat.

Thanks for the tag. I just can't picture you cussing like a sailor. Now me, it seems to come naturally.

Now I guess I'll go put on my thinking cap.

Boy you sure get around don't you? I've done mine, but I modified it slightly (for a start I had to cut the number of to-dos down!)

Blogger Mary said...

Chewy- I do.

Sornie-Oh I know. It leaves me nothing to eat but those darn vegetables.

Just me- I try not to do it on my blog or really even in life. I think I may be getting better but it's almost too late. The kids are grown.

WT- I've been places. I just haven't lived there.
