the five question meme

OK, I love me a meme so here goes on the one floating around in blogland:

1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Married w/ 2 small children, driving school bus because day care was such a nightmare, and we took the kids to Colorado for the first time.

2. What were five things on my to-do list (in no particular order)? Clean and declutter my bedroom, go grocery shopping, go to Target, water plants (don't have to now as it's raining:)), and take Claire and her friends to the new Indy movie:)

3. What snacks to I enjoy? Wheat Thins w/baby swiss and grapes, real popcorn w/ real butter, nacho cheese dorittos and cashews.

4. Where are some places I've lived? In Wisconsin: Green Bay, Pulaski, Appleton, De Pere, Black Creek and Oneida; while in college: London baby!

5. What things would I do IF I were a billionaire? Give more to my favorite charities, set up trust funds for my kids, take care of my parents, buy a second home in Colorado, go to Europe buy Bruce his dream bicycle pay off bills:)

There you have do with it what you will...I won't tag anyone as, well, who the hell would I???

oh my!

I've become one of those bloggers that drive me nuts...write much.

Well, it's Memorial Day, I took Friday off so I actually had a four-day work week, a four-day weekend followed by another four-day work week...wah hoo!! Great start to the summer.

But I am SORE!! We have been busting butt around here, and today is one day delayed laundry day because I wanted to hang it out and yesterday couldn't make up it's mind on what kind of a day it wanted to be.

Got the porch cleaned off so we don't look like "white trash" anymore, weeds are gone, new plants planted or transplanted (please don't die!) spent a boat load of money on it all too!

I am totally getting some pics and then later (if I can get Nick off this thing)get them posted.

The kids are looking at only eight days of school, which I too am looking forward to as I don't have to concern myself with getting them up and just need to worry about me getting up and out. Hopefully someone will answer my call to car pool soon, I may have to alter my hours but in the name of god I almost can't afford to even drive to work anymore...fu$%^&g oil monger, sons of a b1t8hes!!!

Well, off to enjoy the last of the holiday weekend tootles...
