I've Been Tagged...

(I know what you're up to!)

What was I doing 10 years ago
I was a 30-something mother of four with the knowledge that there was one more child coming and I was ok with that (little did I know there were two more, I don't recall signing up for two more...). We had just moved into our 2nd house that we had built and I was excited about the prospect of having a nice yard for my kids to play in finally (it didn't get put in until 6 months before we were to move out, which was four years after we moved in...).

What was I doing 1 year ago...
Enjoying the company of my sister-in-law and her five kids for the summer! Miss ya Suse!

5 snacks that I enjoy...
Toast and jam
Whatever sweet thing is left from the treat my hubby made the night before
Barbara's Cheese Puffs--these are the absolute best!

I know too many to choose from, but here are some that were on my most played list from my iTunes:

Consider the Lilies
Old Dan Tucker--Bruce Springsteen
Soak Up the Sun (not that I like the singer, but I do love the song)

5 things I would do if I were a millionaire...
Buy a ranch somewhere in the midwest
Buy a ranch by the coast
Fly all my family out to visit me, just once!
Buy an RV and take my homeschool on the road

5 bad habits...
Laundry day-putting it off just one more day
Not putting things away when I'm done using them
Yelling, but I am getting better
I don't want to think about them!

5 things I would never wear again...
Leg warmers
Hushpuppy shoes
Poofy hair
Plaid pants
Neon earrings

Monday, June 11, 2007 Summer Cleaning

Well, so far the junk is winning.

Ok, I've slowed down a bit, but am still trying to get some cleaning in each day. It seems that I get one room cleaned out and move on to the next, but when I come back to the room that was cleaned out, it's a mess again! At least it's just a surface mess, the extra junk that had accumulated has been removed, but still, it's a little (lot) discouraging to see it that way. If I could figure out a way to get rid of my kids for a few days (month or two or...)...

Anyway, still trying to make the dust fly!
