Ok, I'll Play!

I've been tagged by Jen for this latest meme. Here we go:

Here are the rules:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago:

Well, it was early 1998 so I was pregnant with E9 (about five months along) and I was teaching middle school science in Maryland. We had just been burned out of our condo and had just moved into our first house.

Five Snacks I enjoy in a perfect no weight gain world:
  1. vanilla ice cream with chocolate jimmies
  2. strawberries
  3. strawberry smoothies
  4. frozen cokes
  5. more ice cream
In the Real World:
  1. I drink too much Coke.
  2. I love to laugh.
  3. Our grass needs to be mowed- already
  4. I like to craft.
  5. I work out at a gym now including some weight training...look out! It might get crazy especially if I could stop drinking Coke!
Things I Would do if I were a Billionaire:
  1. pay off all my debts which currently mostly means my house
  2. buy a lap top (hey- it came after paying off debts) and load it up with fun photo and scrapbooking software!
  3. I'd buy at least ten acres of wooded property to build a house that is "big enough"
  4. I'd buy a new desk top computer
  5. I'd take an html class and buy more TIME to take it! HA! Then I rip up the internet with my mad code skills!!!
  6. This is my meme. I'm adding another...get another CAR!!
Five Jobs I've Had:
  1. teaching gymnastics for the YMCA
  2. work study student in a lab at the university- I cleaned up after a lot of graduate students. I think that is where my distaste for washing my own dishes comes from.
  3. Leggett Dept Store
  4. Resident counselor/camp director at The Bishop Claggett Center in Maryland
  5. 6 and 7th grade science teacher for a public school system in Maryland
Three of my Habits:
  1. I sleep nightly with two rice socks warmed up in the microwave. Every night. I'm addicted.
  2. I wake up and start my morning by getting on the computer and starting the FIAR decluttering thread.
  3. I check email. A lot.
Five Places I Have Lived:
  1. with mom and dad in Maryland
  2. Baltimore, MD (while at college)
  3. with mom and dad till I married in Maryland
  4. Virginia
  5. somewhere in NY state
What do I want others to Get from My Blog:

Well initially I started to keep far away friends and family up to date on our homeschool. I totally didn't get bloggers, but thought that this would save time rather than explaining all the time if I want to share things. Now it's an enjoyable hobby where I learn new skills and what was once a sharing place for family has turned into a sharing place for other homeschoolers. I made some changes so this could be a place of reference for other homeschoolers and a source of encouragement. I hope it is at least some of those things most of the time.

Five People I Will Tag:
Well that's a tough one, but let me see...
  1. Holly
  2. Ivy
  3. Melinda
  4. Marcy
  5. Shannon
