My First Tag!

I've been tagged by Ronnica (Tale of a Kansas Girl) to state some personal things about myself. Thanks Ronnica, I look forward to getting to know you better too!

I've never done this before, so I hope I'm doing this right.

Let's see...rules first.
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 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What I was doing 10 years ago: I was celebrating our 17th anniversary! March 22. Being a SAHM, home educating my--then--10 yr. old daughter.

Five things on my to-do list today:
1. Take 7 yr. old daughter to library...and return some...ahem...overdue bad!
2. Go to CVS and snag some deals.
3. I suppose I should clean I'm committed
4. Help my daughter rearrange her bedroom to fit a hand-me-down desk from big sis.
5. Change husband pulled the sheet up and RIIIPPPPPP! Tore 10" across the top, then daughter took it upon herself to tear the top completely off. All this right after we turned out the lights. We woke up the next morning with a bunches of thread clinging to us. Yep...time to change those sheets.

Snacks I enjoy:
Of course, #1 is dark chocolate
Homemade baked corn tortilla chips
At Easter, those malted milk speckled eggs--Yum!
Wendy's or McDonalds french fries--every once in awhile
I know there are more, but I probably won't think of them until I'm reaching for it.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Wow! Seriously, give, give, give!
Of course, get out of debt.
Pay off all of my family's debt.
Make sure parents are secure
Travel more--not necessarily to exotic places but being able to visit with family and friends who live in other places, until they get sick of us!

Three of my bad habits:
1. My time-management skills are lacking. The stress that comes with the 'whew, just made it in the knick of time' kind of management. Piddling around and waiting until the last minute, then rushing to make it somewhere on time.
2. Lack of steady exercise regimen...doing better though!
3. Not keeping my house as clean as I should...not a slob, yet not a perfectionist...just know I can do better.

Five places I have lived: Only 4 for me.
Pueblo, CO--born and raised
Wichita Falls, TX
Fowler, CO--30 miles east of Pueblo
Flagstaff, AZ--current

Five jobs I've had:
1. Maker of Dentures! Don't know the official name, but did the first few steps in the denture-making process.
2. Dunkin Donuts--I'll NEVER eat another one!
The following three while having the privilege of home-educating our daughters:
3. Cashier at Walmart
4. Stocking Hallmark cards at two Safeway stores.
5. Currently housecleaning the rental pool at an exclusive golf resort. God's blessing for sure!

Five people I want to know more about (a nice way of saying TAG!):

1. LeAnn

If you all would like to humor me, thanks ahead of time. (I know with meme's there's what seems like 'so much to little time!')

It's All Good!


  1. Hey Brenda! Sure I'll play along. It may take me a day or two but I will let you know when it is up. Memes are fun and you did a great job on this one! The question about what were you doing 10 years ago....Wow! That will take some thought!


  2. Hi Brenda,

    I would love to play. I am headed home to Ohio tomorrow from Tennessee and will post this weekend.

    LeAnn :)

  3. Hi Brenda. I'll be glad to do another meme. This will be my third one. These look like interesting questions to answer. I enjoyed reading your answers. This is a good way to get better acquainted. I'll have to think about it a day or two.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. I love the give, give and give. That is just what I would expect you to say Brenda. Great tag and great fun. Have a wonderful Easter with your family.

  5. Thanks for playing along!

    I don't do so well on the exercise thing, either. I was doing well for a whole year, and then life happened. I've been meaning to get back on track, but you know how that is!

  6. Hi Brenda, I think I did this meme quite a few months ago, but since we get new readers all the time I'll re-do it soon. Thanks for asking me!!! I need to post about last week and then I'll do it.

  7. Hey Brenda, it is fun "getting to know you" and I may not play the game exactly as posted but will do it anyway. I had several people w/out blogs send me e-mail with their MEME. Love it.....Connie


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
