TAG! (Meme Time)

Thanks, Jen, for the tag. Not much effort has gone into my blog this week, so this was a good start. :)

The rules are:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What I was doing 10 years ago: I was almost 18, attending St. Joseph's Catholic High School, and getting ready for graduation. I was working as a hostess at Rafferty's Restaurant, dating the same guy since I was 16, and coming to terms with going to college out of state. I was very thin. ;) This time of year, to be exact, I was getting ready for the Prom. In fact, I wound up going with one of Jen's cute friends, and she came along as the date of one of my classmate's.

Five things on my To Do List today:
1. Pick up a green pepper for my dinner recipe
2. Go to our mom&tot rosary/play group (done!)
3. Swap out the Ford F-150 (monster truck) for our van, now newly maintained. (at the low cost of $1700)
4. Laundry
5. Plan next week's menu plan

Snacks I enjoy: A current favorite is chickpeas. I buy the canned Bush's. Rinse them, then eat them straight like that. Love them! I also like the Kashi cookies, and yogurt. Fruit, too.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire: (no particular order here)
Pay off all debt, especially our student loans.
Build a Victorian-style house with maybe 2-3 acres. (wrap-around porch)
Set up trust funds and college funds for our boys
Set up trust funds or special savings for our godchildren
Set up special savings for my brother who is mentally ill

Three of my bad habits:
1. Biting my nails
2. Ignoring my prayer life
3. Procrastinating in responding to people-e-mail, snail mail, etc.

Five places I have lived:
1. Michigan, where I was born. (with my parents and siblings)
2. South Carolina-moved there with my parents and brother in 1991
3. Ohio-4 years during college
4. Different part of MI when I was teaching and newlyweds
5. Austria-only for a semester in 1999, but it still counts. :)

Five jobs I’ve had:
1. Babysitting
2. Hostess
3. Server in restaurant
4. Assistant at an insurance company one semester in college
5. Tutor

People I want to know more about (a nice way of saying TAG!):
Mary from The Stump
