Janet's Meme

Janet tagged me and I've finally made time to respond.

What was I doing ten years ago?
Marley was nine months old and into everything. I'm sure I was chasing her, chasing the older children outside to play, and because we were in Jacksonville, NC then, and summer is quite steamy there, I'm certain I was listening to complaints about having to play outside in the heat.

Five snacks I enjoy:
tortilla chips
dry roasted peanuts
peanut M&M's
trail mix

Five things on my to-do list today:
Get dog from animal shelter.
Get Jacy's Lizard Ridge afghan from Darlene's Knit Shop.
Take Marley to a pool party.
Make beef stroganoff for supper.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
The only thing that immediately comes to mind is pay a huge amount in taxes.

Five jobs I have had:
food-service worker
gas-station attendant
ESL aide
long-term substitute teacher

Five of my bad habits:
Waiting for someone else (anyone else) to answer the phone.
Cracking my knuckles.
Reading instead of doing what I should be doing.
Yelling up the stairs at the children instead of walking upstairs and speaking in a normal voice.
Washing almost all the dishes, but leaving one or two in the sink.

Five places I have lived:
Auburn, Alabama
Irvine, California
Memphis, Tennessee
Beaufort, South Carolina
Romulus, New York

Five people I would like to get to know better:

Five random things about me:
I like figs.
I rarely have trouble sleeping.
I do not enjoy flying.
I like using my solar-powered/wind-powered dryer.
On Monday I dressed in the dark (so as not to wake Steve), left the house, ran various errands and was in and out of several stores and at 10:00 a.m. (four hours after getting dressed) I discovered - on my own - that I was wearing these shoes:

I thought it was hilarious! But I couldn't get home to change them until after noon. What do you think everyone who saw me thought? And why did no one say anything?!

Man you must have been distracted to not even feel the difference!

So funny!

Yes, Donna! My children asked why I didn't feel the difference - one flaps like a flip-flop and the other is strapped firmly to the sole of the foot! I think I must be losing what little mind I had left....

Are they birks?

Yes they're Birks - and I love them, too. I've bought all my Birkenstocks for the last few years from - they have shoes on sale all the time. That's why I ended up with green shoes - they were on sale!

Now that's a perfect example of a preoccupied mind! Too funny.

BTW - I share all your bad habits... and could add a few more!
