Caught again in a tag!

A huge thanks for the tag from my friend at Depression Marathon! I liked her format of direct questions easier than the random facts about yourself, so I’m using this. So, here goes…

The rules are:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. 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.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1). What was I doing 10 yrs ago?
I was finishing up my first year of teaching at a private catholic school in central Michigan after relocating from Houston, Texas. I was also planning for my wedding.

2). What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
1. Laundry
2. Work on my homework
3. Finish at least ONE class’ worth of work
4. Write in my journal
5. Spend time with my boys

3). Snacks I enjoy:
Chocolate. Popcorn. Iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts.

4). Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay off our house, debts, save for the boys’ college educations, get a car that actually WORKS. Set up a tutoring center in our area, and have it open for all kids, regardless of ability.

5). Three of my bad habits:
1. Being very self-critical.
2. Losing my patience quickly.

3. Procrastinating- this is tied directly to my perfectionism.

6). 5 places I have lived:
1. Venice, FL
2. Garden City, MI
3. Fairfax, VA
4. Mt. Pleasant, MI
5. Houston, TX

7). 5 jobs I have had:

2. Salesperson at a shoe store in a mall
3. College tutor
4. High school teacher
5. Stay-at-home mom

8). 5 peeps I wanna know more about:

2. Homeschooled Twins
3. Suburban Wildlife Garden
4. Welcome to O-Ville!

  1. What cool facts about you. It’s good to read your lists to get to know you better, my friend. I see we’ve both lived in Florida & in TX. 🙂 Thanks for the tag. I’ll try to work on my lists and put them in my blog ASAP.


  2. OH, did you have to mention Dunkin’ Donuts?! Now I won’t be able to sleep tonight!! ;D
    The worst thing about moving back to MN from Boston–no Dunkin’ Donuts. At least they’re selling the beans at Target now, but it’s just not the same…boo, hoo, hoo.
    Thanks for playing!
    This has been a great way to meet new bloggers!

  3. D.D. Iced coffee rocks! and yes, ” Procrastinating- this is tied directly to my perfectionism.” I know exactly what you mean when you wrote this one, short sentence. EXACTLY. Hey, from now on, be nice to yourself, K? I gotta try that too 😉
