Foolish Games

(fyi, not saying this is "foolish" just trying to stick with the song title motif) I was tagged by Tara to share the answers to these five questions:

1. What were you doing five years ago?

I have a hard time remembering what I was doing five minutes ago but...I believe I was living in a single wide, two-bedroom trailer (which I loved) with two boys -3 and 1 and waiting not-so-patiently for news from Haiti that we could come and pick Mamoune up. I was also spending an insane number of hours on the phone and instant messaging with a certain Haitian missionary. =)

2. What are five things on your to-do list today (not in any particular order)?

-laundry, laundry, laundry
-home school the kids (without killing anyone)
-clean out and switch over the boys winter to summer clothes (I keep bumping this one to the next days list)
-shop for new closet storage stuff
-take a nap if at all possible (my head is full of snot and I am a crab)

3. What are five snacks that you enjoy?

-milk/white chocolate
-pickles with salt sprinkled on them
-lemons/limes with salt sprinkled on them
-cheese cake
-salt-n-vinegar potato chips

4. What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

-I would rent out an entire tattoo parlor so that I could get a teensy tattoo without anyone seeing me or hearing me cry like a wuss.
-I would pay off our house and buy the two lots on either side of us for neighborhood ministry
-I would probably adopt waaaay too many more kids
-I would let my husband do what he loves just because he wants to, without the pressure of having to provide for his family.
-I would buy three Great Danes (Larry, Curly, and Moe) and the rest of my budget would probably go toward feeding kids and dogs.

5. What are five of your bad habits?

-overeating (and under-exercising)
-not flossing/avoiding the dentist office
-sleeping late
-letting my imagination get the best of me

6. What are five places that you have lived?

-Riverdale, GA
-Milledgeville, GA
-Wake Forest, NC
-Youngsville, NC
-back to Wake Forest, NC

7. What are five job's you've had?

-floral arranging/sales (enjoyed the flowers but worked for psychopaths)
-receptionist (at a veterinarian's office, my favorite out of the house job by far!)
-data entry for a physical therapy office
-sales clerk at a department store (would've been okay if only I'd had a fake tan and eating disorder to fit in)
-day care worker (I should share those stories...another day)

8. What five people do you want to tag?
-Lisa Shay
-Joanna C.
-Chris M.

(I know that several of you have major things going on right now (traveling, moving, missionarying, ect. so, if you don't have time to play -don't sweat it!)

Oh, and I'd like to add one more:

Why does a game about "FIVES" have eight questions? hmmmm.

Pickles with salt sprinkled on them? Bravo. That is a whole new level of salt intake I had never even thought of.

Salt is my weakness. Well, salt and sugar. Come to think of it, where food is concerned, I have no strengths -only weaknesses. shrug.

Bobbey said...

Really?? You don't salt your chocolate or cheese cake???


Troy & Tara Livesay Family said...

aaahhhh - the good old days -- salt and vinegar with an occasional dove chocolate thrown in ... canker sores be damned.

Ok so I am getting a complex. I never win or even get an honorable mention in your stinken contests and now I don't even get my name on the tag list. Find another sucker... I mean person to watch your kids.
You think I'm kidding well I'm not.
You still think I'm kidding Well OK maybe I am a little. Well really I am kidding a lot. Love you Amie even though I'm not on your favorite list.
:) By the way Pickles are great with ham and cream cheese all rolled up.

Nancy -you goof! I had to tag people who actually have BLOGS!! Get one. I'll tag you for sure. =)

Oh, and you WILL keep my kids even if I have to dump them in your yard and drive away at breakneck speed. Don't test me, now. ;-)
