5 Qestions

I've been tagged by Tricia! Here are my answers:

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?

10 years ago was June of '98, and I was adjusting to a new town and new church. Our house was a crazy mess--a major fixer-upper--so that was going on all summer. My Mawmaw moved in with us, and my brother moved out...though maybe he was there through the summer? Ooh, that was officially the first time we had a TV in the house since I'd been born, so my dad and I pretty much soaked up all the Law & Order, Lois & Clark, and whatever else was on that we could. We were pretty much TV junkies.

2) What are five things on my to-do list today?

Well, the day is almost done, but here was my list for the day: Photo shoot with Holly & Sophie, movies with Jon, take a nap, pick up stuff at Wal-Mart, babysit for Bekah.

3) What snacks to I enjoy?

Salty stuff! Chips and salsa, pretzels, chips, pickles, pepperoncini peppers, and cheese are all fair game for snacking. On the non-salty side I like apples, and sometimes I like sugary cereal eaten dry (woohoo for Marshmallow Mateys!).

4) Where are some places I've lived?

In the big city, in podunk-ville, in city planning at its best, in the sticks, in college-mania, and in the ghetto (back to the big city). All in Texas. :)

5) What things would I do if I were a billionaire?

I would try to maintain a normal standard of living, with a few exceptions: I would have an architect build our house, and I would hire someone to do the housework. Maybe I'd even get a hybrid vehicle. I would like to pay off bills, making sure everyone in the family is taken care of, including a trust fund or something for future family. Then I would use a lot of it for missions efforts, and some of it for research and implementation of effective no-kill animal adoption centers. With the rest, I would travel the world, sometimes for specific missions purposes, and sometimes just to see if Michelangelo's David is as really amazing as everyone says.

I tag:


  1. Yay for tagging me! How fun! I have never been tagged before! Here goes! You will have to tell me how to put a link to someone else's blog in my blog!

  2. Wow! No tv in the house until you were out of high school! I am amazed.

  3. I've seen's pretty good.

  4. Ha ha - I'm done! I, too, am impressed with the no TV!

  5. I always felt weird being the only one who didn't know all the Saved by the Bell episodes by heart, but now I'm glad for it. Lately, even though I have a TV, I've found that I hardly watch it at all, and would be happy without one again. TV just gives me an excuse not to read or be productive some other way!

    And, by the way, the no TV thing as a kid was an accident: the TV broke and my family couldn't afford another. By the time they could, they'd gotten used to not having it.

  6. Yeah, we got the new fancy TV with all the cool HD channels, but there's rarely anything on to watch!

    I keep checking for a new post, hopefully about kitties, and it bothers me that "questions" is misspelled.

  7. @KarenD: I JUST noticed the misspelling before I read your comment! Sheesh. I'll try to put up a new post soon. :)
