I've Been Tagged! And Given Some Bloggy Bling..

I was tagged by Charlotte at La Bonne Vie:

The rules are as follows:

1. Post the rules!
2. Answer the questions about yourself
3. At the end of the post, list 5-6 people you would like to tag and leave a comment on their blog letting them know
4. Let the person who tagged you know that you posted your answers.

So here goes....

1. What were you doing 10 years ago? I was living in Texas and we were about to buy our first house. We only had 1 child at the time!

2. What are 5 things on your to-do list today? Just 5? LOL... dishes, laundry, register for school, work on the kid's curriculum for the new year, and make dinner.

3. What are some snacks you enjoy? chocolate...anything chocolate... though lately I've been having a sordid affair with Ben & Jerry.

4. What would you do if you were a billionaire? pay off my bills, live an honest life, and start a few charities--anonymously...from my own island.

5. What are three of your bad habits? nail biting, disorganization, and procrastination

6. 5 places you have lived? Texas, California, Japan, Georgia, Nebraska

7. What are 5 jobs you have had? waitressing, telecommunications, cosmetician at a drug store, pharmacy clerk, writer

8. What is currently playing on your Ipod? don't have one

9. What are the last 5-6 books you have read? The Mermaid Chair, The White Isle, Created to Be His Helpmeet, History of the World in 6 Glasses, and Love in the Time of Cholera

10. Who do you want to tag? Maddy (because she won't be busy enough when she comes back from vacation.), Casdok (because I miss her!), Laura (because she showed me some love*), Melody (because she rocks), and Domestic Goddess (because I know she lives to be tagged.).

*Thank you Laura from A Day in the Life of a Mom of Six for giving me this:

"for sharing about life with Autism."

*She didn't realize that she blessed my day with this... I was having a pretty crappy one and this award made me smile!

I would like to 'pay it forward' to:

Melissa at The Diaper Heads because she is so sweet--she checks on me despite the fact that her life is chaotic as well!

The Dragonfly at On Dragonfly Wings because she is without the Sergeant at the moment too.

The Apron Queen at Confessions of an Apron Queen for sending me a beautiful vintage apron.

Kimmie at Over the Moon With Joy for making herself at home on my blog and offering prayers and support... she has such a beautiful, loving heart. Check her out for great tips around the house!

Sarcasta Mom over at Adventures of Sarcasta Mom because she needs some extra loving.

E over at Mrs. Paproth's Barn for all of the wonderful posts about Vermont...I love them!

Spread the love like wildfire ladies. Muah!

#3 . . . I can devour an entire bag of chocolate chips in one sitting (after eating a bowl of Ben and Jerry's).

#5 . . . the whole procrastination and disorganization (though I am an organizational freak, it is just never, ever enough)

#6 . . . must hear about Japan

#8 . . . get one. Addictive :)

Congrats on the award! So deserving!!!

Awwww...thanks!! It's such a pretty award, and happy-making. :)

I like that if you were a billionaire you'd live on your own island. Sounds lovely. :)
