Meme

Thanks to Mary, I know what I'm blogging about today.

What were you doing ten years ago?

Working two jobs to help pay for my upcoming wedding!

What were you doing one year ago?

Not working outside the home anymore (see...it all comes back to you), and doing about what I'm doing now: homeschooling my daughter, writing, being a wife and mom. Though, last year I was determined to submit a novel, and I didn't make that goal. Shoot. I'd forgotten about that.

Five snacks you enjoy.

Dark chocolate in any form -- except when it has nuts. Yuck.
Salsa with Rosemary and Olive Oil Triscuits - I eat it by the gallon
Popcorn - but it has to be smothered in butter
Doritos
Dry roasted peanuts

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics.

Just five? I must know a couple hundred. I can remember once, in high school, my friend C.D. (waves) and I challenged each other to see who could write down all the lyrics -- from memory -- to "Renegade" by Styx first. I don't remember who won.

Still, because I live with a 6 y.o., I know pretty much all the songs from:

Mary Poppins
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
The Lion King
The Sound of Music
The Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack (My DD loves this, and we listen to it over, and over, and over).

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire

Buy a new house on a decent amount of property with a separate MIL house for ME -- I crave my own space.
Buy a house for my mom.
Open a shelter for unwanted & unadoptable pets to live out their lives
Pay off my brothers house
Take my DD to Disney World in style

Five bad habits

Not exercising enough (is this on everyones?)
Not playing enough with DD
Having a short temper
Not eating right
Not being as a good listener as I'd like to be

Five things you like doing

Writing
Reading
Gardening
Scrapbooking
Going to the movies (which I seldom do anymore... *sigh*)

Five things you would never wear or buy again

Black spandex dresses
Bikini
Low rise jeans (will they ever go away??? I hated them in the 70's!)
Blue frosted eye shadow
Leg warmers

Five favorite toys

Toys?? Erhm.... hubby has all the toys. Let me think...

My dog?
My daughter?
My record player (yup... I have one to play my 300+ vinyl records)
The leaf blower, when it works
Board games?

Five people I’m tagging

I don't think I know five people well enough to tag who have blogs...so, if you read this - you're tagged. How's that?

Judy?
Al?
Charity?
Eden?

Hey... that was four!

I'll take the tag... I was wondering what to write about this morning :-)

For some reason, blogger's not letting me sign in on here this morning, that's why I'm anonymous... this is Judy :-)

Dang, how could I have forgotten low rise jeans and leg warmers?? Like my legs NEEDED to look fat!

Gah! I've been tagged. I think this is a first. Hmm. Must think of answers, sometime today.
