Susan tagged me for a meme that I’ve seen going around. I like Tamara‘s idea of not specifically tagging anyone (not sure how many are left who haven’t already done it) but would love to read everyone’s answers!
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.
- What I was doing 10 years ago:
A lot of the same things I’m doing now – designing and doing technical editing. Himself was still working midnight shift then, so I had to get him off to work every evening (retirement 2 years ago was definitely culture shock!). The kids were already out on their own, grandson Nathan was born in Feb of 98; but MIL was still living with us (she died in Sept of 98 at the age of 98).
- What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Update my portfolio and design proposals, figure out what to pack for TNNA; finish at least 1 of the 3 sweater pieces currently on the needles (added later: got 2 of the pieces done, still need to do the #’s), and work out #’s for the remaining piece; move houseplants outside and set up the sprinkler for them (finished! partially done).
- Snacks I enjoy:
Homemade chocolate chip cookies, chocolate, peanuts and cashews, and did I mention chocolate?
- Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Put a bunch away for the grandkids’ college educations, then I’d buy a bit more land as a buffer and get on with the addition we’ve been discussing forever. I’d help support our church’s programs, probably help our vet complete her new clinic that’s been in process for a *long* time. A housekeeper, a yard man and at least a sous chef don’t sound like a bad idea either – I like to cook, but some of the prep and clean up work aren’t all that much fun 😉
- Places I have lived:
I have lived in New Orleans LA; Yonkers NY; Arlington VA; Guatemala; Kirkwood MO; Parkville MO (NW of Kansas City); Webster Groves MO; and Cadet MO (43 years!).
