Same rules apply as last time 🙂
I got tagged by Doodaddy for this 10-question meme.
1. What were you doing ten years ago?
I was teaching 3rd grade, Scout and I were in a weird place in our relationship (again), I’m pretty sure this is the week I had a bladder infection so bad I was convinced the middle of Hell had taken up reference in my body (and for no GOOD (translation: FUN) reason), we were waiting for our godson to be born.
2. What were you doing one year ago?
One year ago today we had our first ultrasound, and we started breathing a little easier that things were going to be okay. We started telling people once we could share photos.
3. What are five snacks you enjoy?
Jalape?É¬±o poppers. Mac n cheese. Ice cream. Um. Dark chocolate anything. Chips with cottage cheese.
4. What are five songs you know the lyrics to?
Guh. I’ve found that I only really know songs if I have the music along with it. So with that caveat:
Anything by the Indigo Girls prior to 2000. Anything by Depeche Mode prior to 1993. Every song from the Sound of Music. Amazing Grace. “Crabby Baby” lyrics by me, sung to Alex during the season of the evening scream.
5. Five Things You Would Do If You Were A Millionaire
Move to Hannover, Germany for a year – finally learn the language when my eating depended on it. Pay off the bills (yawn). Create the perfect Garanamals wardrobe for myself. Pay someone to make our lawn GREEN and healthy (organically, natch)…. Hm. I’d weekly complete spa treatments – head to nails to toe. Okay fine. For Scout too 🙂
6. Five Bad Habits
Nail biting, being sedimentary when I should be moving, my fucking foul fucking mouth, not writing my Grandma often enough, general laziness, not trying to actually do my hair.
7. Five Things You Like To Do
Sleep. Kiss the Scout, Have fun people come visit me, Make the baby laugh, make crafty stuff while watching tv.
8. Five Things You Would Never Wear
Hm. Gauchos make me look stumpy. Shrugs make me look like all boobs. Same for empire waist, but add in pregnant. I detest Tshirts that were free with loads of graphics on them that don’t fit and don’t flatter any woman. Ever. Ankle boots.
9. Five Favorite Toys
Garmin GPS, all things knitting, MacBook Pro, my former Blue Dolphin (rest in peace), my camera.
10. Five Things You Hate To Do
Make phone calls to people I don’t know extremely well. Touch slimy things. Use knives. Drive when I don’t know my way around. Run.
I’m specifically tagging Jackie. I’d like to hear from Flutter and TwoShews. As like before – anyone can either swerve to miss my tag, or come in for a big ole meme tag hug – I’m all inclusive here. No one gets deliberately left out in Kaiser Alex land!
