Back By Popular Demand, or not....

Either way, I am back. What a week! We had so much fun and are now somewhat refreshed.
I have several things to write about, but for now I think I'll do a meme Ann @ More Questions Than Answers tagged me with. I enjoy memes so here goes:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
3. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Q. What were you doing five years ago today?
1. Wow. I can't remember that far back....
Probably freaking out because I was planning our oldest son's sssenior year of hhhiiigh sssschool and wondering about the core 40 and his transcript and helping him get ready to go to SUMMIT. (Which I highly recommend if you have kids 17 or older!)
2. Probably freaking out because I was planning our second son's sssophomore year of hhhiiigh sssschool and wondering about the core 40 and his transcript.
3. It's a long story, but we were also looking for a new home because our old home was no longer "available" to us.
4. If I remember correctly, 5 years ago I was also slowly walking into a time of anger, resentment, and rebellion in my relationship with the Lord and in my marriage.
5. On a lighter note, I'm sure I was enjoying our little guy-he would've been 1 1/2 at the time!

Q. 5 things on your to do list today.
1. Take our 3rd son to work and run some errands.(done)
2. Get my hair chopped off. (done)
3. Gather stuff from around the house that belongs to our oldest son; he moved out last night.
3. Try not to sob as I think about #2.
4. Bake cookies and make granola in our crock pot.
5. Our 3rd son is moving into the now empty bedroom that used to be our oldest son's.
That will mean a lot of organizing, painting, furniture rearranging, etc. I need to plan and start on all that.

Q. 5 snacks you enjoy.
1. Brownies
2. Popcorn
3. Chocolate Chip cookies
4. Nuts and raisins mixed together
5. Pretzels and an orange eaten at the same time

1. Hire a financial planner/advisor
2. Buy a house out in the country where we could have chickens, Pygmy goats, a cow, etc.
3. Adopt a baby
4. Help our kids, families etc.
5. Save for our retirement and GIVE THE REST AWAY. (I don't want that kind of money!)

Q. 5 jobs you have had.

  1. Welcome back! Glad you had a fun week. =) As for your meme- very cool. Looking back 5 years ago, my what you've accomplished!

  2. One of these days you'll have to explain to me what 'being tagged with a meme' really means. In the meantime, check out my 'meme.' I finished it.....just for you!!! :)

  3. Thanks for the tag Judy! I am finished! :)

  4. Your pretzel/orange combo sounds like my carrot/apple combo. I like to take baby carrots and apple wedges and eat them at the same time. The flavor is incredible and it's all natural. Of course, I'm also the weirdo that loves to drink carrot juice. I don't know what I'd do without Bolthouse Farms Baby Carrot Juice in the three pack from Costco. Should I feel guilty about drinking the juices of infant carrots?

  5. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I noticed you updated your little bio with a new number. ;-)

  6. ooops. I totally forgot one of the rules and didn't say I responded. I posted my meme...thanks for the tag!

  7. I'm right there with you on the money thing...I don't want to be burdened with that kind of affluence. Too much!

    This looks fun. My bloggy time is way down lately, but I'll try to get this done over at my place sometime this week.

    Thanks for the tag, at least. It's always nice to be invited. ;)

  8. Haha! Thanks Judy! I am taking American Sign Language, the second semester and am really excited about it (a class i can enjoy! :) Still trying to figure out what to do about the fall...

  9. I totally agree with you on the house in the country! :-)

  10. I wanna see the haircut picture! Thanks for sharing :) Mmm, I need chocolate now...
