Tag! I'm IT!!!

My cousin Lavender Ackerly tagged me to do a meme. Sorry she had to wait so long for me to get to it!

1. What I was doing 10 years ago...

10 years ago I was getting ready to move to Los Angeles CA to work as a travel nurse for the first time so that my now ex-husband could pursue his dream. I was kicking butt in my Mary Kay business as well but was to soon find out that I couldn't handle both in a new place. My sons were 2 and 11. The 2-year-old came with us to California but my oldest son stayed behind with his dad in Erie. THAT sucked.

2. Five things on my to-do list today

Well since it's 8pm as I'm writing this I'll give you my to-do list for tomorrow:

1. Mary Kay facial with my friend Lori at 9:30
2. pick up rental roto-tiller at 2:30 so that I can have it for Sunday when my boyfriend can till my new vegetable garden
3. attend my now 12-year old's soccer game
4. go to Lowe's/Home Depot for supplies to make the raised vegetable bed
5. go to a movie or other fun thing with my son and boyfriend. Maybe we'll go see Kung Fu Panda!

3. Snacks I enjoy:

1. Newman's Own mint chocolate oreo-like cookies
2. nuts-almonds, cashews, macadamias
3. strawberry shortcake
4. fresh fruit
5. kettle chips and popcorn

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

1. Pay off all my bills, mom's bills, dad's bills.
2. Invest so that I would continue to be a billionaire.
3. Donate to some favorite charities: the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, Heifer International, Habitat for Humanity, my local Whole Foods Co-Op, and other great ones that I don't know about yet.
4. Build a house that uses no fossil fuels...i.e. with a geothermal heating/cooling system, green roof, solar panels, etc. It would also look like a log home or a castle. Not sure which. And it would have a huge vegetable garden!

5. Places I've lived:

-Buffalo NY (birth place)
-Waterford PA (grew up there)
-Erie PA (several times and current domicile)
-McKean PA
-Batavia NY
-Los Angeles CA
-Torrance CA

6. Jobs I've had:

-cashier at convenience store
-nurse's aide
-Registered such I've worked in home care, infusion, critical care, and the cath lab.
-Mary Kay consultant

7. People I want to know more about:

My spoiler Antonia de la Weasley, and anyone else on the swap!

LOL, why did I know you were going to tag me!?!? Well It never hurts to have another weekly post, plus I'm sure my spoilee would like to know more about me.

Maybe later tonight though, I think I'm going to dye more sock yarn.

Of course I want to know more about you! Like when you're going to dye me some Slytherin yarn for my spoilee...:)

Wow... I love your idea about building a house.

Super cool.
