What Was I Doing 10 Years Ago?

I checked out Tiffanie's blog yesterday and found her game of "TAG!" Her question was "What were you doing 10 years ago?" and she specifically tagged me! So here is my answer, daughter dear, along with the list you asked me to complete . . .
  • Ten years ago I was living in our peaceful little town of Farmington and I still had kids at home. I was doing laundry, preparing meals, cleaning house, grinding wheat and baking bread. I was playing with flowers in the yard. I was driving kids to cheer practice and music lessons and going to karate tournaments. I was spending time with good friends (that I miss with all my heart right now). I was working full-time at Life-Line. I was speaking to schools, churches, and civic organizations about drug abuse. I had less grey hair, fewer wrinkles, and less time to do some of the things I'm enjoying today. But I still wish I was 10 years younger right now . . .

5 things on my to-do list today:

  • grocery shop
  • have my Xterra serviced
  • get a physical so I can go to Girls Camp this summer
  • pack for the weekend
  • get this list done!

5 snacks I enjoy:
  • fresh fruit
  • pistachio nuts
  • string cheese
  • skinny cows
  • popcorn
3 bad habits:
  • procrastination
  • falling asleep during a video
  • expecting way too much out of myself and others
If I were suddenly a billionaire:
  • Randy would retire early and we'd travel around the world.
  • I would buy a house for each of my 8 kids so we could be near each other.
  • I would buy a family business and provide job security for our whole family.
  • I would put enough $$$ in the bank for all our grandchildren to go to college.
  • I would give $$$ to families in our church who can't afford to send their sons and daughters on missions.
  • I would run a soup kitchen and feed the poor.
  • I would help Life-Line build a gymnasium and donate $$$ to their endowment fund.
4 places I have lived:
  • Alameda, CA
  • San Diego, CA
  • Farmington, UT
  • Stockton, CA
4 jobs I have had:
  • Secretary
  • Wife and mother (the best and my favorite)
  • Dental assistant
  • Director of Admissions
5 things people don't know about me:
  • I'm afraid of heights
  • I can't sleep when it's light outside
  • I eat the center of my pancakes first before I eat the outside
  • I hate the smell of "old lady" perfume
  • I love Western movies
I TAG anyone reading this who has time to do what I just did!!!! Remember, Tiffanie -- I've never told you "no" because you've never told me "no" . . .
