The "Five Tag" Meme


Last week Laurie Ann and Debra tagged me for this fun meme that is all about 5's. Groups of 5, that is. This was fun and, on several, really made me think. For example, what in the world WAS I doing 10 years ago?? Still a bit of a mystery if I must be honest. :)

Anyhoo.. here's my "Five Tag" answers.......

10 Years Ago :

It was just hubby and I…. no kiddos yet.

We were just returning from a splendid 2 week vacation in Italy.

I worked as a quality assurance manager in an IT department.

Didn’t know who the Wiggles were…. Or Dora the Explorer… or Diego… or.. well, you get the picture. :)

I ‘m cheating and making this statement my 5th item… this is hard… 10 years ago was before we had kids… it’s true what they say… once you have kids you can’t remember what in the world you did before kids! :)

5 Things on Today's "To-Do" List:

Run by Office Depot
Help my son with his homework
Run a load of laundry
Respond to several emails from friends

5 Snacks I Enjoy:

Carrot Sticks (I had to get something healthy in there!) :)

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire:

Give a large portion to my church
Something special for my extended family
Buy a cabin in the mountains
Buy books, books, and more books!

5 Places I have lived:

O’Fallon, MO
Richland, MO
Harrison, AR
Independence, MO
Highland Village, TX

5 Jobs that I have had (or still have today) :

Registrar for Fellowship of Christian Athletes – this was my summer job during college and was the BEST! I was responsible for enrollments for 3-4 of their summer camps and would travel to each of them and spend 2-3 days at each camp site. The coolest college summer job EVER! And, a truly GREAT organization!

Administrative Assistant for software documentation department

Support Rep for a large software application contracted to a government agency

Software Quality Assurance Team Member (we made sure software worked well before sending to our customers)

Business Analyst for large corporation – I provide support to our business users in their use of our system that does the company financials, warehousing, purchasing, etc.

And, now.... if you're reading this post..... consider yourself TAGGED! :)

I loved learning more about you. I'm right there with you on the cabin in the mountains and buying books, hahah!

Thanks so much for responding to my election post. I am concerned, but praying. I'm afraid we're going to be in for it!

I loved reading your list Melanie!
We eat the same things and put carrots at the bottom. LOL
Hey you lived in Harrison? I've been there! Not that far from me!
I'd buy books too if I was rich.
What are you reading right now?

I totally have the giggles right now... coz I keep thinking of you wanting to buy a cabin in the mountains. That would be awesome... and what I'm laughing at is I think some people think I actually "live" in the potting shed. LOL
Must be the whole, "I'm from Arkansas thing??" -- oh yeah, and SHABBY, might have another thing to do with that? Oh well...
I'm wearing my shoes today!
