Lydee tagged me and I thought it sounded fun.
“The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 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.Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.”
1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
Hmm. 1998. Think think think. Heh. I was just finishing up my first year teaching elementary music, it was a hard but memorable year in which my learning curve was practically vertical. I lived in house with two college friends that we nick named the House of Doom. Our landlord lived in FL and wouldn’t let us fix things ourselves. So by the time we moved out, the swamp cooler, the oven, and the hot water heater no longer worked. I heard later that he had made some comment about never renting to girls again. I also later heard that he then rented to some boys who completely trashed the house. Hmm….
Big J and I moved into our first apartment up in Thornton. Sometimes I miss the simplicity of apartment living. Don’t miss the drug busts though. Or the loud people in the apartment below. Or the smell of Jim’s Burger Haven seeping in through the bathroom vents.
2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Hmm. Hang wasp traps so the kids can actually play the backyard this summer, fold laundry, put AWAY laundry (I separated laundry into two things since I often don’t get the second one done), go grocery shopping, actually make dinner (this may not be exciting to you, but I actually love to cook and haven’t been able to during chemo due to smell problems.)
3) Snacks I enjoy: Depends on the chemo. Bleah. Right now I dig the popcorn.
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay off all the bills. And fix the house the way we really want it. Selfish, I know. Probably a chunk to cancer research, especially environmental causes.
5) Places I have lived: Missouri, Kansas, Florida, Colorado
6) 6 peeps I wanna know more about:
Anyone who wants to play! I’d love to know more about all my knitty/cyber friends. You are all such interesting people!
And lastly, I should have moved Agent J’s popcorn bowl the other day. He rolled over with it. Good day to be the dog, though.
