|Today I’m linking up with Elaine (Miss Elaine-ous) and Heather (Theta Mom) for some old school blogging. Back in the old days of blogging, we used to pass these little lists of questions around and “tag” each other and then we would read and laugh and smile at each other’s answers. Fun!
Join in (please!) and link up so we can all read and laugh and smile at your answers!
1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
In 2003, my daughters were 1.5 years old and 3 months old. My ex-husband and I were packing to move from South Carolina to south Georgia. He was taking a job with his mother’s company, hoping to finally find a job that he would want to keep. Lakin was a ball of toddler energy and Addah was a tiny nursling when we moved.
2. What 5 things are on your to-do list?
3. What are 5 snacks you enjoy?
Apples, pears, pecans, graham crackers/peanut butter… and tuna salad on saltines. Yum!
4. Name some things you would do if you were a millionaire:
I would pay off all of our debts and buy a nice little 3-bedroom house in the downtown area of Greenville, SC. I miss living downtown, where I grew up. I’d fund savings accounts for my girls to go to college, make sure our personal savings was well-funded, and take care of our parents and siblings. A second vehicle would be nice, for David, so I could cut down on my daily commute back/forth to work/David’s school.
After all that, we’d go to Europe on vacation. David and I have always wanted to go and show the girls some of the world.
5. Name some places you have lived:
I was born in Falls Church, Virginia. My family moved to Greenville, South Carolina when I was 3, and I’ve lived here for the majority of my life. In 2003, I moved to Mount Vernon, Georgia for 2.5 years, before moving back to Greenville. In 2011, I moved to Keller, Texas for 3 months, before moving back to Greenville.
6. Name some bad habits you have:
I bite my finger nails. I’ve done it for as long as I can remember, and I do it without thinking about it, so it’s very hard to quit. I stopped biting them for a couple of months in 2011 and had lovely, shiny fingernails that I spent a lot of time filing and polishing. They got a little too long and I broke one… and then proceeded to bite them all off. I haven’t been able to quit biting them again since then.
Other bad habits include worrying too much, over-analyzing everything and staying up way too late at night.
7. Name some jobs you have had:
My first job was a drive-thru cashier at Long John Silver’s, then I worked as a waitress at a little restaurant near my house. After high school, I was a floral assistant for 2 years, putting together bouquets of roses and graveside arrangements of lilies. I became a mama in 2001, and opened my business sewing soft soled leather baby shoes in 2002. I closed Moss Feet Shoes in 2006, and after my divorce I took a job teaching knitting classes and selling yarn. After that, I worked as a web designer for several teachers in the school district, while volunteering with the school and chairing several committees.
