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!
