I just arrived home, and see that I got "tagged" by Barb - one of my new friends I made while at a TAC retreat in San Antonio early this year (and Angelhood1 sister).

The "rules" of the game: 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 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.

Ten Years Ago: I was engaged to my husband, Tim, whom I met earlier in the year. I was living in what he calls my "precious" Washington state (I had planned to stay there until I met a Navy man). I was working for a computer company in Bellevue (not Microsoft) and enjoying my job, friends and walk to work from my 1-bedroom apartment. I was driving a blue Toyota Corolla with Seattle Mariner's specialty plates (I still regret not taking a picture of them). And, I was ten years younger and skinnier! LOL

Five things in my "to do" list today:
1. Gas up the Mustang and drive home from North Carolina. (done) I just returned from a long weekend with friends - I met my friend, Crystal who lives in Florida for some time spent at Archiver's (she scrapbooked, I stamped cards). We stayed with my friend, Dee and her husband. 2. Unpack car (not done yet)
3. Decide if I want to go out to dinner or stay home - still undecided. Usually, it's a no-brainer - I love to eat out, but I'm feeling a bit tired after all that driving.
4. Play with the dogs - my babies!
5. Give my computer some attention, it's been sorely missed...I've been without REAL internet since Friday morning! Ahhhhh...

Snacks I enjoy: Red licorice, quality dark chocolate, caramels, potato chips (ok, pretty much anything with sugar in it)

Things I would do if I was a millionaire:
Travel lots more, buy my mom a house, own a horse again, drive a blue V8 Mustang (instead a of a V6), enjoy the debt free life, pay off family member's debt, buy both properties next to us and build us a new house, hire a maid, own a place in Washington state, upgrade electronic toys (laptop, camera, cell phone, game systems, etc.), and the list goes on...

Places I have lived:
Washington state (Everett, Snohomish, Lynnwood, Edmonds, Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Bothell, North Bend, Puyallup, Federal Way - yeah, I moved frequently).
Grayslake, Illinois
Piney Point, Maryland
Fantasy Land

My 5 people are SBS17 Sisters:

Ok - after seeing my blog again - I just can't stand such a large post without a photo. So, I have added a picture of me from my weekend trip. I'm in the workroom at Archiver's scrapbooking store in Raleigh, NC. That's where my friend, Crystal, and I meet to work on our stuff together - she lives in Florida (and I'm in Maryland). It's in black & white because I'm working on my swaps for TAC's Seminar - and the cat isn't allowed out of the bag yet.
