I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Tonia and she's probably wondering if I ever visit her page. It took me a while to figure out I was even tagged, Whitney had to tell me. Ok, here goes...

1. What were you doing ten years ago?
That would be 1998 in April, I was living in Texas and trying to survive my kids' teenage years.

2. Five things on my to-do list today?
Sew Emma's dress, finish varnishing the large piece of furniture upstairs and get the shelves all put back in, then I can start to clear out the schoolroom, which will give me room to finish the 6' painting I started two years ago, then clear out my downstairs "storeroom."

3.What snacks do you enjoy?
Cliff Bars, peanut butter goop, apples, cinnamon and raisin bread, nuts especially walnuts. I have an idea for a new candy that involves walnuts. Sometime I'll try to make some.

4. What would you do if you suddenly became a billionaire?
I'd make sure the name was spelled right, to be sure it was really me and not a mistake. Then I'd have a new roof put on my mom's house and get other things repaired so that it would be in good shape. Craig would have the option of retiring if he wished. Then I'd hire some people to help me with family research and travel. It would be great to visit ancestral places, maybe some of my family, brothers and sisters would be interested in visiting as well.

5. Three bad habits
Doing genealogy until 3, 4, 5 or 6 a.m., not reading my scriptures daily, not eating better.

6. Five places I've lived
Iowa, Montana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Louisiana, Colorado, Texas, that's seven.

7. Five jobs I've had
car hop, lunch room, waitress, truck stop - gassed up the 18 wheelers, testing tires and cleaning their windshields, and cashier at a hardware store. Only five? There's more....

8. Five things people don't know about me.
highly allergic to poison ivy, wanted 8 kids, last year I read the entire Old Testament, just finished the New Testament, I'm still head over heels in love with Craig. Oh, everyone already knows that last one. How about I skipped class in college once to go canoeing?

Now who do I tag? How about the guys, Ben, Tyler, Maynor and Jeff? Think I could tag Craig? Do you think he'd even have time to do something fun like this? Stay tuned...
