Thanks Dawn for tagging me! I am limited on time (can you tell school is out?)... if my answers seem rushed and make no sense go ahead and laugh at me no I mean laugh with me.

The Rules:
Rules are posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names. Then the player goes to each of the “named” people’s blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. If you’ve been tagged, you do the same, letting the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer. Your answer, of course, is the answer to the following questions.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago I was pregnant with #3. I was thrilled as I had a couple miscarrages, we moved to Idaho and I happily nested our little home. I also ate myself into oblivion, I gained more weight with him than any of my pregnancies. I was homeschooling then--this changed when we moved overseas and had wonderful international schools. They have all opted to stay in schools here, says a lot about me, eh?

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
1. Wait for the siding guy to come and give us an estimate on some storm damage. Done: $175-(ouch)
2. Work out an offer on the house we chose in TX. Done: I am so excited/nervous!
3. Clean out flower beds and wash porch with Molly and Henry. Done: this involved way too much use of the hose.
4. Eat a lovely dinner made by darling Maggie. She is a wonderful smells great- a garlic shrimp pasta.
5. Play a game with 4 of 5. Probably Parcheesi.

3. Snacks I enjoy:
Fruit, nuts, cereal

4. Places I’ve lived:
See the list on my blog.

5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
What wouldn't I do if I were a billionaire? I would never buy a sports car of flashy clothes but I could fill houses and barns with stuff I might use "someday". Most of all I would want to do something for kids--all over the world and even in our own backyard. My son played on a football team that had several players that lived in a safe house...they had been removed from their homes because of violence. I guess just getting to know these boys changed my views on so many things. They are great kids...great kids with no parents to hug them and laugh at their silly jokes. I am so very grateful for my kids and the happy home we have, at the same time I have all this guilt. To have so much and see worldwide how so many have so little. I guess if I had an abundance of money I would do something to better their lives.
Oh and I'd also have a personal hair dresser and make up artist for my head of fluff and abundance of freckles. But that's not flashy, right???

Kate, I certainly think you win the prize for the most diverse places having lived!

Thanks for playing!
