Catching Up

I was tagged by Deb!
Rules:The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about himself or herself. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Ten years ago:1998. I was 35 years old and had been out of college for just 2 years. Babygator was 16 and Bebo was 5. We had the world's best neighbors. They were an older couple that just took us under their wing. Babygator was learning to drive and would drive up and down and up and down the drive way. World's best neighbor would come over and ask to drive up and down the drive way. She was so proud. When Bebo lost his first tooth, they made a big deal out of it and took pics. We were trying hard to keep our heads above water financially but life was sweet. I was still adjusting to my job and to my supervisor that did not care for me. I cried a lot. Who would have ever believed that she and I would eventually become bestest of friends.

Five things on today's "to do" list:
1. Go to work
2. Get some boxes
3. Take stuff to GoodWill
4. Field trip to Brownfield so I will need to get a buddy
5. Get rid of some more stuff.

Three bad habits:DANG! Hard to narrow those down
1. I talk too much. I know y'all find that so hard to believe
2. I talk way too loud
3. I can get paranoid in 0 to 60 seconds

Five places I've lived:
1. Clarendon Texas
2. Krum Texas
3. Plainview Texas
4. Post Texas
5. Decatur Texas....do you sense a Texas theme?

Things I'd do if I was a billionaire:
1. Buy everyone in my family a house
2. Establish a hefty scholarship for single moms going back to college
3. Establish some sort of a trust fund for my 2 children and my nephew
4. Give away a lot of money to worthy charities
5. Host a BIG blogger meet up

Five jobs I've had:
1. Youngest pink lady in a Denton hospitals history
2. Probation Officer
3. Insurance Agent
4. Volunteer
5. Mom

  2. Well on the billionaire thing, I would establish FREE DAY CARE centers for all those young women who want to use your scholarships... because as much as it pisses me off sometimes we have SO many young unwed mothers out there, it pisses me off even more that there are so many stumbling blocks placed in their way when they want to do something to better themselves and the lives of their children. Not being able to find decent safe AVAILABLE free or inexpensive day care is the NUMBER ONE issue. My GBaby's mom has told me countless times that she does not think she would have ever been able to finish her nursing degree if we hadn't been here to help care for the boys.
    (stepping off the soap box and calming down now)
