Going 5 Deeper

Leigh Anne tagged me for the latest meme. I actually went online yesterday to learn how to pronounce that word, and learned that it is actually a word, and was in existence before blog chain mail. Now, on to learning more than ever about mememememememe!

What was I doing ten years ago?

Let me do the math…1998. Oh! I was living in Germany; married for two years and some change; no kids; traveling around every weekend we could. I was either working as the Customer Service Rep for the Army Payroll (horrible job because I’m not a finance person…why would they ever hire me for that position?). OR I was a Test Administrator for City Colleges of Chicago (way cool job because I only worked Tues-Thurs and got to drive on the Autobahn two of those days). It was so long ago I can’t remember which. Hubby and I were buffing up for the EAS competition. Dude, my arms rocked.

Five snacks I enjoy?

  1. Peanut butter M&Ms
  2. Reece’s Peanut Butter cups
  3. Popcorn and Raisinettes (yes as a snack)
  4. Tortilla chips
  5. Cheese and coke (you must read the post to understand)

Five things on my to do list TODAY

Ok. First. I’m supposed to have a to do list? Maybe that’s the problem. Surfing shouldn’t be one of them I guess.

  1. Laundry (usually a Friday ritual–I only do it once a week–but we’ll be gone tomorrow)
  2. Pack for trip
  3. Go on trip
  4. Relax on trip
  5. Oh, return a Blockbuster movie

Things I would do if I were a billionaire

  1. Tithe. What would that be? $100,000,000? I can’t even fathom that many zeros.
  2. Fully fund the girls’ college accounts, for private colleges.
  3. Fully fund the girls’ wedding accounts.
  4. Invest and save
  5. Spend some, of course.
  6. Travel. My dream of dreams.
  7. Continue to give away.

Five jobs I’ve had

  1. Owner of Sew Petit, LLC.
  2. Administrative Assistant at The Flickinger Center (Performing Arts center in Alamogordo) where I got to sell tickets, help write grants, do radio ads (if you’re nice I’ll tell you about the time Du made an ad with me for the radio), etc. I was even on their Board of Directors for a while (INO).
  3. Test Administrator for City Colleges of Chicago in Germany. I administered the tests and made sure people didn’t cheat. I actually did not relish having to throw guys out of the classroom.
  4. Customer Service Rep for the Army payroll system. Let’s just say I had a lot of headaches during this job. I hated it. Switched to Test Admin. to save my sanity.
  5. Hostess at Mick’s Restaurant in Decatur. Awesome food. My first experience with restaurant workers. I did not fit in.

Five of my bad habits

Here’s where you think you’re getting the dirt on me:

  1. Procrastinating
  2. I just noticed yesterday that I’ve started wringing my hands
  3. Sticking my foot in my mouth (more on that to come)
  4. Talking on the phone while driving and not using my ear piece
  5. Eating food that’s not necessarily good for me when eaten on a constant basis

Five places I’ve lived

  1. Pensacola, Florida
  2. Warner Robins, Georgia
  3. Decatur, Georgia (suburb of Atlanta)
  4. Stuttgart, Germany
  5. Hampton, Virginia

Five people I want to get to know better (I’m tagging you in the hopes that you’ll play along. Please?)

  1. Kerith of The Right Wife. Your latest post has me very interested.
  2. NV of This D*mn House. I’m intrigued that you’re a fixer upper (I’d love to do), a scrapbooker (I love to do) and a genealogist (I’d love to do again if I had more time).
  3. Tori of Snapshots of My Life. I remember spending the night at your house once. But after that I don’t know much…
  4. Cher of Wich4. A really good friend who reminds me of Beth Moore.
  5. Kristen of We Are That Family. Your life through your blog is terribly funny. Your life before your blog must be as well.

If I could pick two more I’d ask Heather and Rachel to play along as well. I know both of you pretty well, or do I?

6 random things

  1. I’m numb now with the news of Steven Curtis Chapman’s daugther. More here.
  2. News like that really puts life into perspective.
  3. Do you honestly know where you’re going when you die? You don’t know when that time will come.
  4. Have a relationship with Jesus and everything else is cake.
  5. Your kids need to know about Jesus too.
  6. Reagan and Du’s favorite song right now is I Danced With Cinderella. God, give us the chance to have all of those moments with our girls.

I haven’t proofread this. Hope it’s ok.
