All About Me...sorta...

I am not totally sure how this works, but I read my name at the bottom of my friend Patience's blog, under a tag was assuming that she was tagging me! So here goes!

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Well, that puts it August 1998. We'd just moved from MN to NC in March 1998, so I'm guessing by August I was suffering through my very first southern summer. You know, where it's 98 degrees in the shade and so humid it feels like you are walking around wrapped in a wet, wool blanket? Yep, good times! Oh, but that's also when I met my BFF, Sandy!

What was I doing 5 years ago?
Five years ago makes August 2003. Guess what?! We'd just moved from NC to PA in June 2003. (Anyone see a pattern here?) And I know that it rained non-stop that whole summer. I've never seen so much rain! The new basement flooded, the creek flooded. I worried I could not get out for groceries. Horrible! My life seems to be marked by moving and bad weather!

What was I doing 5 months ago?
That was March. I was doing what I'm doing now. Homeschooling the kids, dealing with Matt's travel schedule, staying up too late playing on the computer, watching train wreck TV late into the night, reading so much my eyes itch, eating too much junk, buying too many scrap supplies, making too many mini albums, and just being me. I can't even complain about the weather now that we live in CA. (See, no one asked what I was doing THREE years ago - that would be moving from PA to CA!)

5 things I want to do in this life.
1. Travel more
2. Write a book
3. See my kids get married and have kids of their own
4. Learn to swim
5. Learn to speak another language

5 bad habits.
1. Denying I have bad habits.
2. See #4 below.
3. Gossiping
4. Being selfish with my time.
5. Hoarding chocolate.

5 things you don't know about me. (Are there 5?)
1. I love sappy romance movies and novels.
2. I also love military thrillers and spy novels.
3. I really don't care for music all that much.
4. I take the good candy out of the kids' Easter baskets and Halloween bags - and eat it.
5. I've seen Cool Hand Luke about a million times.

1. Jersey Shore, PA
2. Dayton, OH
3. Maple Grove, MN
4. Cary, NC
5. Coopersburg, PA
