I guess my friend Shilo decided I needed something to blog about, so I've been tagged. Here are the rules: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 other people and posts their names.

And now the questions. . . .

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

Graduating from high school, preparing to have my wisdom teeth taken out, and saying goodbye to friends and family. Less than a month after graduation I moved out to live with my aunt and uncle and work as a nanny for them.

2. List 5 things on your to do list.

* Make a menu and go grocery shopping.
* Buy a new tire for my running stroller.
* Clean my house. (this one is always on my to do list)
* Organize all of my miscellaneous recipes. (I have the recipes, I have the book, I just need to put them together).
* Yard work.

3. What snacks do you enjoy?

I have a terrible sweet tooth. I am not picky, but some of my favorites are cookies, brownies, and ice cream. Recently my vice has been my homemade concoction of almonds, craisins, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

4. What would you do if you were suddenly a billionaire?

First of all I would pay my tithing. Then I would probably buy a house that is not on one of the busiest streets in Ogden, and a more reliable car for Brian. Then I would invest in gold and silver and some securities (I still a little nervous about the state of the economy and don't have a ton of trust in the stock market). I don't know what else. Probably take some to travel and give some away (anonymously of course, I don't want all of my phone calls and mail to be people begging for me to donate to this or that.)

5. List 3 bad habits.

* Procrastination first and foremost. I am terrible about putting things off.
* Independence, if that can be a bad habit. I hate asking people for help. And I'm so independent, it leans a little too close to anti-social.
* Watching too much TV.

6. List 5 places you've lived.

* Baton Rouge, Louisiana
* Athens, Georgia
* Kailua, Hawaii
* Gallup, New Mexico
* Ogden, Utah

7. List 5 jobs you've had.

* Lifeguard
* Nanny
* Cashier / Waitress
* Pharmacy Technician
* Accountant

8. List 5 things people don't know about you.

* I only eat one hot dog a year.
* I'm totally addicted to Sudoku and I love to do puzzles, but I hate crossword puzzles.
* My natural writing is incredibly small and anytime someone watches me write they comment on it.
* I shop at Target instead of Wal-Mart if given the choice.
* I love musicals and have a strangely large musical songbook catalog in my head for someone who does not have a dramatic bone in my body.

Now I tag Rachel, Elan, Elyse, Sarah, and Becky. If you don't want to, I won't be offended, though.
