A MeMe

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Oh, 10 years ago. Young and single. Let's see, probably working and partying. I may have had a horse, I can't remember. I had had 2, then took a break and had 1 more for a bit.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today?

Since it's 10 pm, this is for tomorrow.
1. Grocery shopping
2. Finish swap/shower diapers
3. Find Snitch!
4. Spin!
5. Relax

3. Snacks I enjoy...

Chocolate is my favorite. I also enjoy popcorn, nuts, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, and cake. Fortunately, I can make some of those somewhat healthy. :)

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire....

Buy a house. Have a housekeeper and a cook. Get a new car that I really want. Pay off my mom's house. And I guess my brother's house too. Pay off our debt. Take a long vacation to Disney World and stay at the Polynesian Inn.

5. Places I've lived

I've spent most of my life in South Florida. Hollywood, Miami and then West Palm Beach. We moved to WPB when I was about 7 and I lived there until I joined the Navy at 31. Since then, I've lived in San Diego and Jacksonville. Temporarily lived in Great Lakes and San Antonio.

6. Jobs I've had.

I've had a lot of jobs between my first real job at TJ Maxx when I was 16 and my last real job in the Navy at 33. Mostly behind a cash register, but I've worked at warehouses, restaurants, vets office, horse feed store, horse barn, gas station, auto parts store, pharmacy, babysitting....I think that's it. My longest job was at a privately owned Mobil station. I was there for 4 years before I joined the Navy. It was the first time I was able to support myself on just one job, which was nice. It was also my favorite job.

7. Peeps I want to know more about...

Gosh, I hate bothering people with these things and I am such a loner. I don't think I'm going to tag anyone. :)

Pictures may either be posted to your site OR you can hyper-link to the pictures location, BUT when I visit your site I MUST be able to see or get to the pictures in some way by seeing or clicking. Simply having the words of what the picture is will not work.

Startling Revelation

That's what I had a few minutes ago when I realized that though I reminded all my fellow Gryffindors to post in their blogs, I had not done so yet myself.

So, I have figured out what I am making my spoilee, I just need to find and buy the materials. I also know what yarn I will be buying. Just need to find a pattern now.

This past week and next, I have severals days off from Hogwarts to visit with my mom. I still have to attend to my Prefect duties, so it's been busy and I have been slacking a bit. But we're having a great time visiting. :)

It's the Weekend!

Ahhhh... the weekend! Time to kick back and relax after a busy first week at school. Well, to semi-relax, as I have duties to attend to over the weekend and am just getting ready to start them. :) Next week there will be homework and Quidditch practice!

Almost time!

Well, this is proving to be a busy term already! Who knew being a Prefect involved more work? :) I finished sending all the owls out today, Hooray! It's been a busy weekend for all the owls.

I have my new spoilee. She's in Hufflepuff. I have already bought my stitch markers! I couldn't resist them. I can't wait to get the sign up info and get moving on the rest of the swap.

I think this is going to be a great term!
