Just Five Things

I love how bloggers are so narcissistic that these things are called MeMes!  Long before I started blogging I had a t-shirt that I wore that said "It's all about me", so I was always destined for the bloggy life.  I started blogging because I love to write.  I had no idea of the friendships I would make.  I love the connections.  I totally see how people say they "fell in love" over the internet before even meeting.  Not that I still don't think it's weird or can take the place of real human connection, I just get it.  No, I am not "in love" with any of my bloggy friends, so don't get creeped out.

One of those friends, who I can't wait to meet at the Casual Bloggers Conference is Kristin at Shades of Blonde .  I still remember the first time I read her profile.  She is an 80's chick like me.  She had me at Erasure.  So anywho, she tagged me in a meme, called 5 Things.

1. Where were you 5 years ago?

Ummmm, physically, spiritually, mentally?  That is a loaded question.  I was living in the same house I am now, had the same six kids I do now, same two cars and the same husband.  And after moving about 7 times in 13 years, I will take the monotony.  (We are moving into a different house this summer, because moving a few blocks away sounded FUN)!

2. Where would you like to be in 5 years?

I would like to be retired, have all the kids out of the house and living on beach somewhere.  BUT reality says I will still have at least 3 kids at home.  Will still be mom, wife and by then a world renowned blogger or in a padded cell. Whichever comes first.

3. What is on your to do list?

Ummmm, physically, mentally or spiritually?  Okay I don't really have to do lists for all those things, though I think I did on January 1st.  I like to make do lists and cross things out. My mom used to write things down after she did them just so she could cross them out.  Right now it's sign up my son for lacrosse camp, reserve a spot at the lagoon for a graduation party, start packing my house, and decide what movie to see for girls night out tomorrow.

4.  What are snacks you enjoy?

Well, it could be a really long junk food list but you may be shocked to know that my fave snack is blue chips with hummus.  Yummy!  And then there is the junk....peanut M&Ms, Whoppers, chocolate chip cookies and Diet Coke.

5. What are five things you would do if you were a billionaire?

1. I would DO NOTHING!!! Everyday would be a spa day.
2. Oh yea, I would help tons of charities, promote world peace, blah, blah, blah.
3. No one that calls me family, would have any debt.  Dave Ramsey would be so proud.
4. Having a cook, a maid and a driver would be a no brainer.

Thanks Krista!  2 weeks until CBC.  Be ready to put the Dr. Pepper on ice!

Lourie said...

I was going to go, until our furnace died. That pretty much canceled that and whole bunch of other stuff too! I am glad you get to go.

Diet coke is the best, and it totally balances out the other stuff.

Krista said...

So, we like have so many snacks in common, dudette, totally rad! (I had to say that in our 80's lingo!) you know what food I miss from the 80's - Pizza Puffs! They were yummy! I'll see that Lisa brings the ice and I can bring the Diet Coke. PARTY! Sorry, reverting back to the 80's again.

Tio Rob said...

Don't let her fool you, it's really See's Creams o Lindell Truffles and full-strength Dr Pepper!

AB said...

Why does CBC sound like Girls Camp for bloggers?

And I want to know about your move...? New ward?

Momza said...

"You had me at blue chips and hummus"...
Your list, could be my list.
Which means one of two things--
We are long lost sisters of different mothers,
I have really good taste in bloggy-friends.
See you at CBC!

5 years in the same house sounds lovely. My record so far is 3. I love the "like to be in 5 years" part. Wouldn't that be nice?

Thats funny. My husband just yesterday said, "what, are you so narcissistic that you HAVE to check your blog to see who's read it?" I just looked at him, and said..."yes." So I'm happy to hear that bloggers everywhere are considered to be 'N'. I'm going to go tweet now about my morning breath...:) I love getting to know all these amazing, funny, interesting people through blogging.
P.S. Can I call you 'family' if you do become a Billionaire?

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I hope to be retired in 5 years too but that ain't going to happen either. Have fun at the conference.

I appreciate that you said everyone in your family would be debt free--because I've always thought that is what I would do if I suddenly came into money!

AiringMyLaundry said...

Mmm chocolate chip cookies and diet coke.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Whatever Girlie!!! I KNOW you love me, so stop fighting it already!!! LOL!

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

I'm it Diet Coke or DP that you like??? The people demand an answer!

Unknown said...
