My friend over at jonisjoy tagged me with a list of questions. Hers is so much fun to read. Mine won't compare, as I am not nearly as witty as she. Here goes:
WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO
-I, like Joni, was also a "DINK", as she says, and I'm glad she has introduced me to this acronym which means, "Double Income No Kids". What in the world did we do with all that money??
-I was celebrating my 1st anniversary, living in a rental house, and had just finished my first year teaching...32 5th graders in my classroom! (what a hard and LONG year that was)
-I was enjoying my summer by the pool reading books, and for the life of me I can't remember how I spent my time (as well as my money) pre-kids.
-Peanuts/chips, or anything salty. I'm not so much on sweet foods.
TO DO LIST
-Get oldest daughter's hair cut so that her ringlets don't form into dread locks!(I am SO NOT kidding here)
-Buy school supplies
-Get my son and husband baptized this Sunday at church
-Register girls for ballet class.
-Process tons of files (this is an every day thing)
-Put away clean clothes that have been folded in the laundry basket for over a week.
-Try my best to catch up on laundry, period.
JOBS I HAVE HAD
-(This is REALLY pitiful...) The first job I got I was hired at a local Goody's store, only because my father knew someone because I had never even gone to an interview. My first day of work, I overslept and didn't show up. I didn't have that job anymore...even before I even worked there! Again, so pitiful.
-Later in high school I worked at a local Doll Shop...BORING!
-My profession...Teacher. I taught at an underprivileged school for several years after graduation. I taught 4th and 5th graders. HUMBLING! (They will tell you "like it is!")
-Business Owner. I started my own business from home...I process bankruptcies for a local attorney firm. I have my own LLC and I can do my work in my pj's if I want to.
PLACES I HAVE LIVED
-South Georgia (Statesboro)
(How sad is that??)....Guess I'm just a Georgia Girl!
Well, as so not to incriminate myself I will tell you my "good"/BAD habits:
-Not putting things back in there place.(I am not the most organized person)
-Not using my time efficiently...I am such a procrastinator, plus I like to do things that interest me, not things that don't....like laundry and other household chores.
-Losing my "cool". I sometimes raise my voice and yell, perhaps getting into a battle with my children, when I know that I shouldn't.
5 RANDOM THINGS PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME
Honestly, this is the hardest question on here, mainly because I think I am an open book. What you see is what you get....so, I'm kind of at a loss here. Also, I struggled with this when I wrote my 100th post, so see that if you really want to know completely random things about me.
-I took piano lessons for at least 7 years and I still can't read music well (without saying in my head, "F.A.C.E. or All Cows Eat Grass...), although I can play by ear pretty good.
-I don't have very good rythym....NOT a good dancer!
CD'S I WOULD WANT IF STRANDED ON AN ISLAND
-I am a huge instrumental, classical kind of person (especially piano)..anything that makes me feel good.
-Anything by Alison Krauss because she has such an angelic voice that soothes my soul.
-I'm a sucker for good ole' country music because I can relate to the songs..they tell a story and I love it!
WHAT WOULD I DO IF I WAS A BILLIONAIRE
In no particular order:
-I would do is build a new house with plenty of closet space!!! I am seriously outgrowing my 60's style ranch house.
- I would put aside money for each of my children
- I would make sure all of my family members had what they needed and were financially secure.
-I would give money to the church. Probably most of the money would go to my brother and his church. He is doing a Presbyterian church plant in Boone, NC. He and his church could use the money to help them and people would be blessed by him and his ministry/preaching for many years to come.
-I would carefully consider adopting or fostering (although, I can barely manage the 3 that I have )
-I would travel with my children all over the world.
"That's All Folks" Now...I am supposed to tag a few other people, but since practically every blogger that reads my blog has already been tagged, I can only tag one person...BrewCrewFive your next (if you haven't already been tagged).
