I'm It!

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

Ten Years Ago:
1. I was recovering from having my ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus repaired-hence, the cheerleading that I was doing my senior year of high school came to a screeching halt (I wish I had a cool story to go along with this injury like maybe I saved another girls life as she was fallling off the top, but really I was just showing off with my really great high kicks!).
2. I came to the conclusion that college was going to be placed on hold and began meeting families in NY, NJ, and CT that I would possibly nanny for.
3. I was taking my "Dean" and placing him adoringly in the corner of my bedroom to admire over and over again. Thank you to my favorite ever english teacher.
4. And, I have to throw this one in for Adam......camping with my best friends on the lawn of the high school before gradation most definately takes the cake for year 1998!

Five Things On My To-Do List Today:
1. Aroebic conditioning for chix (I will be there today ladies....I have run out of good excuses!).
2. McDonalds date with Heber.
3. Return library books, and pay a "hefty" late fee.
4. I get to play with my little guy today since my hubby cleaned the "whole" house on the
weekend........there is still a "little" to do.
5. I get to have my hair cut this evening! HOORAY!!!!

Things I Would Do If I Were Suddenly Made A Billionaire:
Tithing right off the top (that would be a big check), pay off Ben's medical school loans (also a big check), build a surgery center in Jackson Hole so Ben could set up shop, build a "modest" house in or around Jackson Hole so I could set up shop, college education for my kids, spread some love around the family, and I would fly to NY and have one major shopping spree at all of the stores I felt too underdressed to windowshop at when I lived there.

Three Of My Bad Habits:
1. Okay, I will admit it.......BLOGGING. I sometimes forget that I am a mom and a wife when I log in to this little world.
2. I have a big problem with popping joints in my body.....fingers, toes, elbows, wrists, ankles, back, neck. I have this ritual that takes place several times of day. I do stay away from my knees though if that is any consolation.
3. I eat when I am bored or sitting in one place for an "extended" period of time. Yet another reason why #1 is bad for me.

Five Places I Have Lived:
1. Montpelier, ID
2. Garden City, UT
3. Long Island, NY
4. Kirksville, MO
5. Canton, OH

Five Jobs I Have Had:
1. Raspberry picker (I still can't eat the little things).
2. Front desk help at local motel
3. Nanny
4. Pharmacy Technician
5. Medical Transcriptionist

Things Most People Don't Know About Me:
My closet is organized according to sleeve lenth, color, and pattern. All hangers have to be white and all tops have to be placed on the hanger in the same direction, My jeans and pants are also stacked on the shelf above according to brand and color. I am equally as particular about Heber's closet, his toy area, and our pantry.
I have a to do list that I make everyday. If I do something that was not on the list I have to add it to the list so I can check it off.
I really don't think I need to say anymore about things you don't know about me....I assume you can take it from here.

You're It:
Jen, Annie, Sari, and Suzanne

Ohhh, camping! Is that what it was? I though it was laying in a tent listening to friends make-out all night! Hey I found Suzanne on your blog and want to say what's up but it wont let me comment cause I'm not on her list. (what's new, right?) Anyway, tell her to send her e-mail address to Ash at ashleephelps2010@yahoo.com so we can send her an invite. SEEE Yahhh!

Hey-
It was good to hear from you. Your little family is super cute. I have to say, I'm kinda freakish like you about the to do list. I do it every day and have to mark everything off just like you.
Take care,
Amanda
