I got tagged by Mike!

My dear buddy, Mike, tagged me for this meme. Thanx, Mike! Here are the rules of the game (post these first).

1)Each players answers questions about themselves.

2) At the end of the posting tag 5-6 people.

3) Post their names and then go to their site leave a comment telling them that they have been Tagged. Then ask them to read your blog.

4) Let the person who tagged you that you have completed your posting.


WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO: Same thing I am doing today...trying to take over the world! Ok, on a more practical level: Ten years ago in February, my Mom passed away, so I was grieving that loss. My kids were 14, 13, 9, and 8. I was swamped in female teenage hormones and two fellas who were in a hurry to be I was dreaming of the time when all that would slow to a dull roar. I am proud to say, "I survived!" I was also looking forward to the next decade because I knew my forties would be easier than my thirties had been.


Literally on a to-do list:
1) Finish Happy Hour Quilt
2) Finish a bag I started
3) Do PIFers' gifts
4) Find 3 quilt tops I have made plus a pattern I know I have
5) Have "family meeting" today

On an inner-personal level:
1) Spend more time praying
2) Organize fabric....the clutter gets to me-emotionally
3) Complete to-do list to eliminate stress
4) Start walking daily
5) Take yoga and belly-dancing classes for the fun of it

3) SNACKS THAT I ENJOY: CHOCOLATE, homemade sugar cookies, pretzels, peanuts

4) THINGS I WOULD DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE: I would give 10% off the top to a ministry or cause I believe in, loan money on KIVA, buy myself a brand-spanking-new hot little red sports car, invest, travel our great country and then Europe leisurely with my honey and maybe buy a villa in Tuscany, pay off my debt(which is small)and my honeys, too, buy each of my kids a good used car(they have to be able to afford insurance), put money in a trust fund for each of them that they would begin receiving upon college graduation & securing gainful employment(gotta motivate them somehow), and put a large down payment on the home of my dreams in the location of my dreams. The money for my villa, home, and car payments would be in an interest bearing account with automated payments:). I may also hire a personal trainer/nutritonalist/cook...or at least a personal assistant. I would do positive things for mine and my honey's health. I would purchase the farm that my Grandfather poured his blood, sweat, and tears into and restore it to it's former glory...all the way down to the old swing on the porch! Oh, and I would go shopping for Flip-Flops:).

5) PLACES WHERE I HAVE LIVED: Born in Cleveland, OH, lived in Fairmont, WVa, moved to Oakland, MD. Also lived in Deer Park and Friendsville, MD. Then Neeces, SC. Onto Williamsburg, Newport News, Yorktown, and Jamestown, Va. Finally, back to Northeast Ohio. Been in the same house for 17 years now:).

6) BAD HABITS THAT I HAVE: Cigarettes, caffeine, not drinking enough water, not doing some housework daily and letting it pile up, not staying on my kids' hineys to motivate them, and last but not least: saying Yes when I should say No.

7) JOBS THAT I HAVE HAD: Waitress, hostess, nail tech, homeless shelter manager(twice), fast food manager...Mother:). Definately the last one has the best perks.

Now for the tagging: Betty, Joyce, SAO, Nicole, and Storm.

If you do this meme, sign the Mr. Linky and get yourself some Linky Love!

I’m glad Mike tagged you for this one after seeing it at Small Reflections. I did it last week for Meme Monday (if memory serves). I loved learning more about you today. Okay … now that I see the Mr. Linky I went back to check … and added the link so others can find it in the 2nd half of my Fun Monday post there. Hope all’s well with you and yours!
Hugs and blessings,
