I have been taggd by Kim at Homesteaders Heart. Ya'll run over and visit her blog. She cracks me up with her humor, and her gift for encouragement and wisdom is a definite blessing to me.
I'm supposed to list 5 things about these 5 things that are about me. And, then I have to "tag" 5 people. That's a lot of fives!
Here we go.....
The Five Tag
10 Years Ago :
I was recovering from a miscarriage trying again to have a child. I was on massive amounts of infertility drugs. At the end of the year, God said, "Look around you and learn contentment with what you have." So I did.
I worked as a systems analyst.
My bonus daughter was 13 and still an angel.
I didn't know what blogger was.
I had my gallbladder removed.
5 Things on Today's "To-Do" List:
Read my Bible
Eat a cinnamon roll
Take a nap
I should mention that I have The Cold That Has Gone Down Into My Chest And An Ear Ache as well, so even watching tv is a challenge.
5 Snacks I Enjoy:
5 Things I would do If I were a millionaire:
Take care of debt.
Give to charity (probably an orphange)
Buy a second home in the Mountains next to Kim's - you were talking the Smokies, right?
Give the kids our home and build us a new one. (I should build them one, right? Their turn to become millionaires will come! Be patient!)
Go on a serious book-shopping spree.
5 Places I have lived:
I know it's only 4, but I can't lie about it!
5 Jobs that I have had (or still have today in some cases)
I worked for the state as a receptionist from age 16 to 18 on contract during the summer, Christmas Holidays and Spring Breaks.
I took a permanent position right out of high school with the Department of Education in Child Nutrition as a Secretary.
I moved to the Bureau of Building for DFA but went back to Child Nutrition as a Super Secretary.
Became a Systems Analyst for Education in their MIS department.
Moved to DFA and did receptionist work (I got burned out as a techie), then hopped up to manage our travel department. I have finally found my niche and know I am where God has called me to be. I have been with the state since October 1, 1989. That's a LONG time!
Okay now I have to tag 5 people. And you play along, too, even if I didn't tag you. I think it's a fun way to get to know each other.
Leave me a comment if you pick up your "tag" before I get back on tonight. I think I'm fixing to go take a nap, ya'll. The Cold is wearing me down. If I haven't seen a comment from ya I'll send you a comment or email letting you know you've been tagged.
