Meme

This came by way of Travis' Blog.

The rules:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post,the player then tags 5 or more 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.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answers.

And on with it....

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago today I was a mother to a new baby Sledge-2 months old. Bama was 8. We were looking for our first new home. I was delighted and felt blessed in the fact that I was able to be a stay at home mother to my two precious children. Time passes quickly and they grow up fast. I am so glad I was able to relish it.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
Buy teacher gifts and party stuff for kids end of year parties
cook supper-BBQ
Watch Dancing with the Stars
Unpack my suitcase
Household stuff: laundry, strip beds, mop floors, hug the kids, kiss the Hubby....

3. Snacks I enjoy:
chips & salsa, cheese, welchs sparkling grape juice, spicy nuts, fat free Pringles, air popped popcorn, lifesavers, fruit, raw veggies with ranch dip, cheeseball with triskets

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy a beach house, a boat and a good fishing rod. Buy a jeep for beach drives with my sweetie so we can feel the wind on our hair and the sun on our backs. Pay my kids college and all my nieces and nephews schooling as well. Pay off my parents house, their beach house and any debt. Put my mother in law through a womens tennis camp (Sanddestin) every summer. I think she'd love that. Begin a scholarship program for children that work to better their world through community service and "pay it forward" acts of kindness. (those who Lead by example) Have a good summer bash with a killer band and great food with lots of friends and family.

5. Three of my bad habits:
signing (sign language) when I sing a song on the radio as I drive. I just sing and sign away.
washing my hands or using anti bacterial soap constantly
breaking out into song when someone uses a word(s) in a sentence that reminds me of a song. They look at me as though I have flipped.
(another bad one is reading blogs instead of doing housework. BAD!)

6. Five places I have lived:
Sarasota Florida, Portland Oregon, Hoover Alabama, Helena, Alabama

7. Jobs I've had:
Law file clerk, dolphin rehabilitation, kindergarten teacher, tux rental "measurer" (always felt uncomfortable with the pants measurments), cashier, pet store, car detailer (the weirdest job), photographer, writer and the best-mom! (which entails many in that title)


I will not call people out, but if you decide to participate (& I hope you will) leave a comment and let me know so I can stop by and read your answers.

Leigh, you are so amazing! You're a photographer, you sign, AND you were a dolphin rehabilator?? Seriously, you're so cool!

Travis said...

You sign? That's cool!

Leigh said...

Well thank you Trickie. Hey I always say, do what you wanna do, be who you wanna be. I am still working on the roller derby thing myself....

Indeed I do Travis. I was so proud to be able to comminucate with Marlee when we met.

Can I come to the party when you get rich? I bring the dip...

I laughed at the breaking out in song when you get a key word. I do that too, and I haven't heard anyone else claim that habit!

Take care Leigh!

Jennifer

Leigh said...

Hey J!
I am headed to your blog NOW to see what kind of stuff you are spreading about me on your blog! LOL!
I am glad to know that you and Jennifer do the song theing too. Seriously my friends think there is something wrong with me-except Flo she does that too.
And yes! I am so serious about the dolphin rehad...read these post from before to see what I had to say about it. It was so interesting and another passion of mine. I love the sea!
