Tagged Again!

Here it is, Frankie!
What were you doing 10 years ago?

I just had a baby. We were living outside of Chicago, in Batavia, though we were still working in the city. We were deciding whether we would move back to Mississippi. I was preparing for another semester of teaching, though I knew it would be my last.

What were you doing a year ago?
Being a Momma, wife, farmer, homeschooler, web designer, and Girl Friday.

5 snacks that you enjoy:
  • Tab - though I really am going to quit
  • Guacamole and corn chips
  • Coffee ice cream
  • Apples sometimes with peanut butter and sometimes plain
  • The salsa we only have this time of the year when the tomatoes are perfect and the peppers hot
  • Chocolate - I'm not choosy
5 Songs you know all the words to: I know a lot of song lyrics. Here is a sampling. Don't judge. You can't always control what sticks with you.
  • Shave Yo Legs - Keb Mo
  • Up On the Housetop - The question is does my sister still remember the words?
  • Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding
  • Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd including the requisite "Turn It Up" at the beginning of the song
  • Amazing Grace and the rest of the hymns I learned growing up
  • John Henry and the other folk songs we used to sing with Momma

5 Things you would do or get if you had a Million dollars I can't think of anything I would rather be doing and I really need to get rid of about half of what I have but . .
  • I suppose I could buy a new fuel conscience car, maybe electric, but even with that I would like to wait until the technology moves forward just a bit and the children quit making a mess
  • The barn could use some work
  • Something to make my husband happy - maybe a new tractor and hay baler or a new truck
  • A camping/hiking trip in Alaska - I would have to wait a while for the children to get stronger legs. I can't carry them

5 Bad Habits
  • Tab
  • Inability to say No to Things I know I don't want to do
  • Letting the laundry pile up
  • Obsessive focus on projects
  • Being selfish

Heels on the city sidewalks

I distinctly remember my bartender's "uniform" during college was heels and a mini mini skirt. Honest to gods, I don't know how I managed it on my feet all night long, but I do know I had a really cute butt back then.

The butt is no more (sigh) and I wouldn't wear a minimini anymore for fear it would put someone blind. :-)

I can still remember the soles of my feet hurting - sometimes until the next morning when I would wear the same shoes again. Why would I walk so far and stand so long in shoes completely inappropriate for the task.
