Memed by Jened

I have been "memed" by Jened

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
Each player answers the questions about themselves.
At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What I was doing 10 years ago:
It was the week before my dad passed away and I was spending most of my time in the hospital.
Generally I was teaching high school at Park Hill Christian Academy.

Five things on my to-do list today:
Buy groceries
Go to an evening meeting at church
Go to the Goodwill to look for a couple of hats for the upcoming ladies tea at church
Fix supper
Vacuum my bedroom

Snacks I enjoy:
Chips and salsa
Chocolate ice cream
Little Debbie snacks

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Give to my church and pay my pastor a decent salary
Give to missionaries
Pay for my children's student loans, for their bills and buy them each and house and a car--however, I would limit how much they receive otherwise because I want them to be productive.
Buy us a home/pay off our bills
Give to a number of people I know who need help
Establish/help a ministry that reaches out to children especially in foreign lands
Pay for a maid 2x a week

Five of my bad habits:
Talking too much according to my husband & son
Often unmotivated
Wasting time
Being a little preachy (only a little & I don't really think this is a bad habit)

Five (or more) places I have lived:
Pueblo, Colorado
Bainbridge, Georgia
Mishawaka, Indiana
Canon City, Colorado
Fort Collings, Colorado
Loveland, Colorado
Springfield, Missouri
Arvada, Colorado
Toledo, Ohio

Five (or more) jobs I've had:
House cleaner
Greenhouse worker
Furr's Cafeteria waitress
Worker on CSU book project
Records technician

Five people I want to know more about (a nice way of saying TAG):
Jen chose most of my contacts.
I only have a couple others, and they may not have blogs. You can post on my blog if you want to. If you read this blog and feel like doing the meme thing, that would be great. I'm not going to contact anyone. It's up to you.
Jill and Karen

I played - Julie tagged me also - my answers are posted on my blog. I think I posted more than the initial blog in the comments section answering questions or just sharing more....

Loved your answers - its neat getting to know people better. I enjoy reading your blogs and comments on others blogs :)

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since you dad passed. I know it's been awhile, but somehow it feels just like last year. I read my mom's blog and I realized (again) how bad those few years were on all of our family. It was really hard on you. It's fun to see how alike we are and yet so very,very different. Have a wonderful Easter and tell your Hubby and eldest child I say Hi to them also. xoxo Julie
