I've been tagged...sorta

Patrick at Born Again Redneck had been tagged and rather than pass the tag onto specific people he said, "Now I'm supposed to name 5 or 6 people I want to know more about but I'm just going to tag anybody who reads this because I'd like to know more about everyone who reads my blog."
Well, since I read his blog on a regular basis, I guess I should consider myself tagged.
Here are the rules of this tag.
The rules:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 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.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer.
1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was a mom with 5 young kids who ranged in ages from 7 on down to 1.
2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Grocery shopping
Pick up some things from my mom
Clean the kitchen
Do some laundry
Fix dinner
3) Snacks I enjoy:
Ritz crackers and cheese
Popcorn with lots of butter
Jumbo shrimp (cold with coctail sauce)
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
-Buy the property behind my house. Plant lots of trees and install play areas for these kids.
-I would start a fund to help families torn apart by meth and other desctructive drugs.
-Buy a nice house for my parents or remodel (overhaul) their existing home because they wouldn't want to move from the house they have lived in for more than 40 years.
-Provide college educations to all 9 kids in this house.
-Then I would save the rest.
5) Three of my bad habits:
Staying up too late at night
Talking too much
Leaving the dishes till the next morning
6) 5 places I have lived (not in any order):
Salt Lake County, UT (Salt Lake City, Kearns, West Jordan, and Herriman)
Ft Collins, CO
Orem, UT
Pembroke, VA
Bluefield, WV
7) 5 jobs I have had:
Kitchen help in a small hospital
Cafeteria help in a large hospital
Reading aide in an elementary school
Webmaster for a small company
Child day care (at home)


Now I need to pick 5 or 6 people to tag. I like Patrick's line of thinking...so I am going to tag anyone who reads this blog. If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged.

James, you didn't mention the most interesting job you had.

I should put down what my hubby was doing 10 years ago...he was working for a computer game company writing code on Playstation games...that job was followed by writing code for Microsoft for the Xbox.

**Running away from tagging**

That dirty hippie fare didn't look at all good to me.

Dried squid? How come Japan wasn't on your "places lived" list then, phelonius? I always found it amazing to watch what some people were willing to eat, PROVIDED they had a cold brewski handy to wash it down with. ;-)

I guess there were 9 voices at that time, eh.

Interesting song, FJ.

Oh that's right. I did forget to mention my gig as an assistant funeral director in a small town in Arkansas.

FJ, that was my initial reaction when hearing that James had worked for a funeral home. But I have come to see it as fascinating.

I have learned a lot about his nature from hearing stories about that experience.

From this I have learned of his incredible reverence for life and, by extension, death. There are other things that support this thinking, but this here speaks volumes.

I had a co-worker who had been in the business. Unfortunately, he died about six months ago...

He had experience more heart surgeries that any human being should ever have to...

FJ, some people certainly have more than their share of troubles.



btw...I think it takes a certain kind of person to work in a funeral home. I knew a guy in the mountains of Virginia who owned the local funeral home, there. He was also a local christian minister. Neat guy!

I had not been back to visit that town for more than 15 years. A few years ago I had the chance to visit that small town again. When I got there I found that someone I had known from before had died and his funeral was that day.

It was good to see that same funeral home owner/minister doing his job.

BTW...I was not a member of his congregation, nor do I adhere to his faith, but I considered him a man of great faith.
