I normally don't like to do stuff like this, but I guess I'm in a different sort of mood today. Also I'm afraid Tiffany won't be my friend anymore if I don't...and since she's pretty much the only one that comments on my blog I can't afford to lose her. So here goes.

A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.
C: At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 Years Ago: I was half way through my sophomore year of high school, probably soaking wet from walking home in the rain, and obsessing over whoever was my current crush.

On My To-Do List: Today it's to buy more diapers so tomorrow when the storm hits I won't have to resort to tying kitchen towels around Tyler's bum. But in the future it's to: take a vacation touring all the church history sites, become a professional quilter (I don't know exactly what that is, I just want to be better at it), possibly get my teaching certificate to teach special education; take my kids to Disneyland; have my very own pool and hot tub.

5 places that I've lived: Sacramento, CA; Lake Oswego, OR; Provo, UT; Lehi, UT. That's not five, so I'll make one up. Baton Rogue, LA.

5 jobs I have had: Library shelver; respite care provider; warehouse worker @ emergency essentials; another job working with handicapped adults that I have no idea what my title was; mom

What I would do if I became a billionaire: I would buy my brother Aaron. Then I would turn him into my personal: slave/lawyer/cook/record keeper/shoe polisher/laundry folder/channel changer/do whatever I say-er. I figure that would only cost about $13,896, so with the rest...
-give large portions to the church (after tithing)
-buy my dad a sailboat (and a life jacket)
-buy the rest of mine and Jeremy's family members whatever they want
-save for college
-pay someone to come clean my house
-buy Jeremy 4x4's, but not snowmobiles
-buy Alexis 40 million barbies
-buy Tyler 40 million balls (oh wait, he already has that)
-buy myself a Nissan Maxima
and then I would get a whole bunch of $100 bills and start passing them out everywhere I go, just to see people's reactions.

Bad habits: picking my split ends; wasting time; procrastinating!; cracking my knuckles (I know, I'm going to give myself arthritis)

Things I enjoy: the SUN! my family; reading; quilting; water; being in nature; indoor rock climbing.

Things people don't know about me: that I hate American Idol; that the only guy I've ever kissed is my husband; that I work with Webelos scouts and LOVE it; I'm fairly obsessive about counting things, like the buttons on my remote control--there are 48. I've counted at least 1000 times; that I'm really boring and have no secrets.

I am now tagging: Shelise, Melanie, Giselle, Jessica, Karly

you can't have Aaron...he's MINE!

shellybellybee said...

You hate American Idol?! I guess that's easy to do. What else do you count?

Karly said...

Yay you tagged me! (Hope that's a good thing.) I loved reading your answers, and it made me miss you! I miss you picking your split ends and wasting your time. :) I love your blog Lisa, how else would I be able to waste all MY valuable time if I didn't have your blog to read? I guess that's why we're friends, what else are friends for?

by "Mine" tricia meant that she's already paid up for my services through the rest of '08. I am, however, a hot market item. I usually get sucked off the shelves faster than a pile of nintendo wii's at walmart. there are several reasons for this: 1. i'm the best; 2. there's only one of me; and 3. I can predict natural disasters. so it takes having more than all the money in the world to snaggle me...it takes timing and an intense hatred of the phrase "going green."

Thanks Lis! That was brilliant! Much better than mine. :) By the way, I'd never disown you as a friend! NEVER! Don't ever forget that either! :) Have a good one! P.S. I'm getting really close to getting Sunday's events downloaded. I just need to find out how to download audio onto my blog. I'll think of something...if it continues to not cooperate. Wish me luck!

I also attempt to count dots on the ceiling, like when I'm at the dentists. I constantly count kids that are running around me, especially if I'm supposed to be watching them. Lots of other dumb stuff.

I miss you too Karly! I'd tell you to move to utah but I wouldn't wish that on anyone right now.

I thought Tricia might put up a fight for you. Especially since you can predict natural disasters. That would have come in handy when I was getting ready to have Tyler. Not that knowing he was a "natural disaster" would have changed anything.

Tricia said...

oh...trust me...there would be a fight. I'm a brawler, all 90 pounds of me!

didn't you also work at the book warehouse. i seem to remember some discussion about kole honking the horn to pick you up at 6am.
and, if you need a 5th place to live, shelly's mother-in-law used to tell everyone she lived in north elk grove, california. so could you!
