Five Things About Me Meme

This meme is from one of my darling daughters, Alyson from In Nuce.

5 Things I was doing 10 years ago: (I can't even remember yesterday!)
1. Getting ready to send my 3rd baby girl off to Air Force Boot Camp
2. Teaching 8 different science classes at the local alternative high school
3. Trying to think of a memorable way to celebrate our 25-year wedding anniversary
4. Wishing for a grand-baby
5. Enjoying my favorite snack - Mystic Mint cookies which have since been disguised as Dark Chocolate Covered Oreos and are not carried by any grocery store. Instead they carrie the Milk Chocolate version which is no way as delicious! GRRRRR!!!

5 Things on my T0-Do List today:

1. Get feeling better
2. Go to bed early
3. Watch the last 2 episodes of Prison Break Season Two
4. Read 100 pages in book 4 of the Cliff Janeway series, Sign of the Book
5. Finish this post

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire:
1. Take my mother, brothers and sisters on a cruise to Scandinavia
2. Take my children and their spouses and my grandchildren to Disneyland
3. Pay someone to help my husband with the basement remodeling
4. Remodel my kitchen
5. Add dormer skylights to gather lots of light into my house

5 Things I'll never wear again (or have never worn):
1. Sleeveless blouses
2. Fake fingernails
3. Stiletto heels or any shoes with pointed toes
4. Maternity clothes
5. A bikini, although I will be wearing a swimsuit in the spring when I start going to water aerobics again

5 Favorite Toys:
1. Computer, obviously
2. iPod
3. DVR
4. Slow cooker
5. Food processor (I hope I get one for Christmas and so I can play with it by the hours!)

Hey, how is one of your favorite nieces not included in this Disneyland trip? Just kidding. I think a Scandinavian cruise would be fun too. I just need to become a millionaire too.

Ten years seems like a long time ago for some reason. Okay, so I bit and did this thing. It was harder than I thought. Still, I was glad you did it and I enjoyed your answers so I thought, "It must be a good idea."

I miss Mystic Mints too. Sure glad we're not still waiting for grandkids.

Cassie, if I was a millionaire I'd take you. I'd have to have you decorate me a cake though.

Even if none of us become millionaires, we should plan a trip to Scandinavia sometime. I would love to go.

I agree with Candleman, ten years is a long time ago.

Alyson said...

Yeah, I had a hard time coming up with 5 things I was doing 10 years ago.

I really enjoyed reading your answers. I'm glad I tagged you. :)

Lynne said...

Your blog looks so pretty - just like a wrapped package under the tree!

I loved reading your answers, what fun, and then I scrolled down and read your post about your head leaning against the window and noticing the stars. I loved that! What great memories. Thanks so much for sharing.
I actually did this meme not to long ago, so I'm going to find it and link a new post to it instead of doing it again. Thanks for tagging me!

I love my food processor. I don't cook nearly as much as I'd like because of the extreme smallness of my "kitchen", but I still use my food processor on a fairly regular basis. So handy. So very handy. I hope you've been a good girl this year so Santa will put one under the tree for you!

Hey mom! Sorry that I never comment! I love you! As soon as I read about the mystic mints, I searched online for some place that I could buy them for you. I thought that would be a great birthday present...I already have your Christmas Present taken care of! :P No such luck! I'm going to look for Fudge Mint Oreos too, just to see. Aren't they the ones you mean?
