Tag You're It

I was tagged by Paula of Sew Confused. Thanks, Paula! Hope this makes sense. My brain is fried today!

WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO?
Same thing I'm doing now. Wife. Mom. Homemaker. Crafter. Seamstress. Add in Home Educator.

WHAT ARE 5 THINGS ON MY TO-DO LIST TODAY?
Supervise and Assist two teens hired to clean the basement - DONE
Supervise and Assist two teens hired to clean decks and paint porch - DONE
Spray Paint two end tables black - One down, one to go.
Sew side drapes for safari room - Haven't even started. Might be a late nighter
Register son for golf camp - Ummmm...where's the phone!

SNACKS I ENJOY:
I'm not really a dessert person. Favorite sweets would be cheesecake and white choc/macadamia cookies. Pizza is my favorite snack.

THINGS I WOULD DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE:
Give money to son's private school.
Give money to Carry the Cure
Buy a Steinway for our church (and one for me too!)
Help several deserving families I know
Finish our house and landscaping
Buy DH several toys he has denied himself in order to buy US things
Travel with our sons
Too much else to list here

PLACES I HAVE LIVED:
Eugene Oregon (yet another thing we have in common, Paula!)
Kirkland Washington (went to college there)
Fremont California
Roundup Montana (don't ask. It's too painful to talk about)
New Orleans, LA
Tacoma WA
Santa Cruz CA
Springfield MO

WHAT TYPE(S) OF WORK HAVE I DONE?
Babysitter (child)
Cafeteria worker (college job)
Librarian Cataloging Assistant (college job)
Designer Dresses, Coats and Furs Salesperson (also did modeling for the Dept. Store's fashion shows)
General Labor, Remodeling Work for FIL's investments
Church Secretary (before kids arrived)
Free Lance Writer
Various Entrepreneurial/Home Business Stuff

All of the above was brief and inconsequential. My biggest desire was to investment a lifetime in my marriage, family and home.

SIX (6) “PEEPS” I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT.
Those who want to play along...no obligations to anyone!

Sharon Sews - Sharon
Weekend Crafting - Reethi
Sew Much to Sew - Angelia

I'm too tired (did you see today's to do list?) to think of any others! Sorry. :(

Ok, nice list...but go back and put something really nice for yourself first on point 4 (the billionaire one) - you deserve it :)))

When did you live in NOLA? I was there from 75-82.

We only lived there about 10 months, Lindsay. DH was there for a special ministerial training program. We were there for the school year of 82/83. So we probably did overlap a little. :) I worked for Maison Blanche and DH worked construction when not attending school.

Small world, huh?

Vicki - Gosh...I already have far more than I deserve. But I did say I'd buy myself a Steinway. I'd get the biggest grand they have. I think they're about $300,000?
