1. What I was doing 10 years ago. (I was 17)
  • Getting ready to graduate from high school
  • Planning to go to College at GBS
  • Falling in love with a guy that had the biggest and softest heart - and still does

2. 5 things on my to-do list today.

  • Dust
  • Sweep
  • Clean all three potty's/bathrooms
  • Vacuum
  • Read with Treyton for "right to read" week which they are having at school
  • Set up for the crop tomorrow night
  • Settle a dispute
  • Settle a dispute
  • Settle a dispute
  • Settle a dispute

3. Snacks I enjoy

  • Ritz Crackers
  • Townhouse Crackers
  • Triscuits
  • Cheese-nips
  • Graham Crackers
  • Yep, ANY kind of cracker would always be my first choice of a snack

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire

  • Pay for my kids school/college, and then their adult housing needs
  • Give generously and consistently to both sides of my family who are called to ministry.
  • Give a large sum to my church
  • Pay off my house
  • Invest

I must add a few "real" things here too....all of the above things are the important things and I would definitely do them first...but there are things that all of us want, too. Here are mine.

  • Open the largest scrapbook store you could find
  • Buy a 1967 Ford Mustang: Fastback for Nathan 8-)
  • I'll just take a little BMW or
  • Fly my family to Paris for a month vacation

5. Bad Habits I have

  • Not getting in touch with family and friends like I want to
  • Procrastinating - It all gets done, but not as fast as Nathan would like. lol
  • Would taking too many pictures fit in here? Depends on who you ask. Like Nathan...or Amanda?! lol
  • Getting sick to death of routine; I am always up for change. Any type. Sometimes though it could verge on not just being happy with life as it is right now. Like it is perfectly fine that my great room furniture hasn't been changed around in a couple of weeks. 8-)

6. 5 places I have lived

  • Brent, Alabama
  • I could list several million here while we were traveling, but oddly enough they only lasted a week
  • Beach City, Ohio
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Bedford, Indiana
  • Massillon, Ohio

7. Jobs I've held

  • Ice Cream Specialist at Midway
  • Waitress at a restaurant Nathan and his family owned
  • Kindergarten teacher at BCBMC
  • 4, 5 and 6th grade teacher at SCCA
  • Teller at Hoosier Hills Credit Union
  • Scrapbook Instructor at Scrap Happy Scrapbook Store
  • I do happen to be a Mommy, too although I'm not sure I'm employed because the paychecks seem to be non-existent. lol

8. 5 people to tag

Don't think I will tag anyone...this was fun though.

Thanks, Mand. Loved it.
I forgot to put 12 entries of "settle a dispute" on my tag list. How about a little brotherly love around here, huh? Especially when I practiced such sisterly love growing up!
Love! Mel

Are you ever going to update again!?! I'm back at work, but I'm still on afternoons, so maybe next week sometime I can bring Jocelyn out to see you before I go to work, or even a Saturday after 2, because then I have the rest of the day to myself. Anyway, let me know!

Sorry, my mistake, she's only 6 weeks old! I'll post a correction for you. I was probably fighting with her when I posted, she likes to hit the key board while she is fussing! Anyway, May 17th is national scrapbooking day and I think I'm going to take the day off to work on my scrapbooks...but you'll be at the WOW retreat :(
