Six Things

Sorry for being absent. I've had so many bloggable things lately but I just can't seem to get my self together to get it done! I've had amazing weekends for the past, I don't know, 4 weekends! But I'll speak on that soon. For now, I'm easing back in with a meme...

The ever-lovely Sophanne tagged me with this:

"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 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer."

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was living in Tucson, working at a nefarious bar, finishing massage school and in October of that year, meeting my husband.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
work, return some things to stores, go to Costco, make more Stitch Savers, knit

3) Snacks I enjoy:
anything with sugar, but lately I've been addicted to hummus and Ritz chips

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire: hire a maid.
D and I always talk about what we'd do if we won lottery - travel, buy a medium house with a lot of land, buy cars for friends and family. Parker had a bill on the table to build this fancy new library with a preforming arts center. D said he would build it but they'd have to name it after the Nebraska Huskers (which, in Colorado is sacrilege!)

5) Places I have lived:
Reedley/Clovis/Fresno/Shaver Lake, CA; Ft. Jackson, SC; San Antonio, TX; Ft. Benning, GA; Wurzburg and Schweinfurt, Germany; Tucson, AZ; Parker, CO

6) Jobs I have had:
packing baby products for retail (you wouldn't believe the mark-up on that stuff!), optician in the Army, waitress, massage therapist, head-hunter, many others that I'll discuss someday...

I was once offered a job as a student beautician in a mortuary. I was all for it until the tour and there was a small child on a slab. The funeral director was in mid-sentence but when I saw that little girl, I just walked out without a word. I took the job as a student beautician for an insane asylum instead.

7) 6 peeps I wanna know more about:

NoMoreSweaters (maybe then she'll start posting again? Miss her!)

and anyone else who wants to play!

Getting back in the saddle, Ruth!

I have a deep horror of insane asylums. I think it comes from all those slasher movies I watched as a kid when I was supposed to be sleeping. I'm not sure I'd consider that an improvement over a mortuary (although I get the part about the kid--that would be very, very tough).

Hey there, 5elementknitr, contest winner!
I've decided to reward everyone since there were only eight comments on my post "What dreams have you deferred?" and the little portable kleenex holders are so easy to make (and I need sewing practice before my dreams of being on Project Runway ever come true--JUST KIDDING! I suck at clothing making and will never be a contest for project runway unless they decide to make it like American Idol and completely tear people to pieces and treat them like trash for tryouts!) Unfortunately--or fortunately depending on your perspective--I will be making them without the googley eyes and instead be using pretty fabric from my stash!
So send me your address!
