I was tagged twice over the weekend! Kat tagged me for the book meme which I hope to do later this afternoon, because the book I’m reading is upstairs and I’m too lazy to go and get it. Plus, I have to leave for work in about 20 minutes and…well, I’m wasting time by explaining.
The other tag I got was from my New Friend Siobhan (she’s Scottish, you know! LOL). Here are the instructions and my answers:
A) Each player answers the questions about themselves.
B) At the end of the post, the player then tags 2 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
10 years ago:
*I was still working in the nursery at the health club where I now teach. I was able to have the job and have my kids with me, which was fantastic.
*We had just returned from a great trip to San Francisco: I LOVED IT, but haven’t been able to get back there!
*I was in my second year of teaching second grade religious school
*I had already been married for 11 years (wow, now I feel really, really old)
*I was driving a cherry red Plymouth Voyager (red because it was my favorite color AND because I was trying to make a family minivan “sporty”)
5 Things that were on my “to-do” list for today: (I’ll use yesterday’s list since today is still fresh!)
*Teach both 2nd grade classes at religious school, since my “partner” is in CA
*Work on magazine article
*Try not to fall asleep
*Watch the finale of “American Gladiators”
*Walking the dog (but haven’t in a couple of weeks: too cold and icy outside!)
*Group fitness classes
*Being at home
*Spare time (I don’t get it very often)
*Conversing with my kids
What would I do if I suddenly became a MILLIONAIRE?:
*We’ve actually talked about this before, though we never play the lottery…
*We would set up better college funds for the kids
*We would pay off the house
*We would invest some
*We would share some with our family
*We would give ourselves a little raise in the monthly expense money we write into our current budget.
5 Jobs that I have had:
*McDonalds (one of my fave jobs: I worked at the location just off the high school campus with many of my friends!)
*Head cashier and Custom Framer at Leewards Craft Store
*Custom Framer and Art Gallery consultant in a Kenosha, Wisconsin art gallery
*Membership Sales at a health club
*Part-time Salon Coordinator
5 Things People Don’t know about me:
*I sometimes put a knife or other object under one end of my plate so gravy or other liquid food doesn’t run into everything else
*Sometimes I listen to aerobic music while I drive
*Although I seem organized on the outside, it is mostly an illusion
*My first and only “big breakup” was with a woman and not a man (get your heads out of the gutter: she was my best friend for 5 years and we ended up having a big falling-out)
*Due to the fact that I wear a size 11 shoe, I hate shoes.

(but if the spirit moves any of the rest of you, do this meme and let me know!)
Alright fine……I’ll be back to let you know when it’s done 🙂
I’ll get right on it. Thanks!
Your knife idea is GENIUS! I’m so using that the next time I have gravy!!
I’m done!! Hope ya like it!!
I have a lot of friends in the UK that have a size 8 foot (US 11). I don’t think it’s big at all. Plus, you get all the bargain shoes because all the other sizes are sold out. Lucky.
Melissa: I’ve been doing that since I was a kid, and taking heat for it from many (my dad REALLY enjoys teasing me about it)…but I don’t care. I don’t like when my food mingles! 🙂
Siobhan: I try to look at it that way BUT many stores don’t even bother getting 11’s in many styles, and so I end up getting stuck with little variety…
Qweenie: I’m going to your blog right now!
