Another "5 Things", as posted at Polly-Esther's site...
10 years ago: Settling into our new apartment in Springfield, MO, where we’d moved in early June so Rob could attend college. Only two kiddos at the time (K@ytlin was a mere 3 and N@than was 23 months old). Started cleaning offices in the evenings to make some extra money while my secretarial/résumé service was getting off the ground.
5 years ago: Living in the St. Louis metro area; had been there for almost a year. Now with 3 kiddos (Kay was 8, N@than, almost 7, and P@rker, 2 – where does the time go??). The church we’d gone there to start was 8 months young. If memory serves, we were getting ready to head east for Mar’s wedding.
Yesterday: Saw Rob off to PA for the week. Painted the master bathroom (sage-y green). Balanced the checkbook and paid some bills. Started reading a new book.
Today: Slept in. Planning to paint the trim and window sill in the master bath (white) and touch-up the green paint as needed. Going to a FSBO seminar this evening. Missing Rob though he’s only been gone about 24 hours.
Tomorrow: Probably more painting and overall home preps for what seems to be an inevitable sale. Might need to venture out for a few groceries. May be taking a meal to a family who just lost a loved one. Community group in the evening.
5 bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: Does it have to be bands...ummmm...I really can’t think of any.
5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Pay off all debts, purchase a nice home, invest for college and retirement, give to churches and causes I believe in, get a 2005 Mustang GT (a white one, baby!). And if I could make it six, travel .
5 bad habits I have: Procrastination, arriving late, worrying, leaving shoes out, and (Rob says) touching my face (it makes me break out).
5 things I like doing: Reading, lounging by a pool, eating out with family/friends, watching movies with Rob, and sitting outside when the weather is cool.
5 things I would never wear: tanks with no bra (in public, anyway), short-shorts, fur coats (I just don’t like them or see a real use for them), spandex anything, spaghetti straps with bra straps showing (I think it looks tacky).
5 TV shows I like: What Not to Wear, Extreme Home Makeover, Six Feet Under, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Orange County Choppers.
5 movies I like: Steel Magnolias, Les Miserables, Chocolat, Pretty in Pink, and The Wedding Singer.
5 famous people I'd like to meet: Billy and Ruth Graham, Laura Bush (she seems so classy), Hillary Clinton (she intrigues me), Sean Connery (love that accent), and Mel Gibson
5 biggest joys at the moment: Rob, our kids, being tweaked in my faith, coffee in the morning, knowing I am loved
5 favorite toys: cell phone, lap top, our cats (they are so much fun to watch), Rob , and my bike.
5 people to tag: anyone who comes here and hasn’t done this yet.
