My first meme

Wooohooo....I was just tagged for my very first meme.

Katie from http://the-view-from-the-hill.blogspot.com/ tagged me. I found Katie's blog via NaComLeavMo.

'The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then go to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

'1. What was I doing ten years ago? Ten years ago I was living in Kalamazoo, MI. I owned my own house, had a Bouvier and three cats. I was single and just starting to think about getting back in to the dating world after a painful breakup with the "boy next door." I was somewhat addicted to the Internet at the time and would spend hours chatting online. I was working as a community pharmacist and on my down time was renovating my 90 year old house.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Go to "mommy group," meet Amazing Daddy for lunch, have meeting at daycare with The Boy's "posse" to discuss his summer transition and how he's doing now, clean the kitchen (again), and work on moving my blog.

3. Snacks I enjoy: fruit, anything sweet, popcorn

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire: Oh my, where to start! First I would make sure that everyone in my family was comfortable, and that my boys, and my nephews, had college funds set up. I'd send my parents back to England to visit. I'd donate money to a bunch of charities. I'd pay off our bills. I'd buy a house with a yard! Most likely in the country. I'd probably have a couple vacation homes too. And a house keeper! And a part time nanny. And then...I'd probably go a bit crazy and have some fun shopping and travelling! And I'd do every thing I could to convince my husband to do IVF again and try for another baby.

5. Places I've lived: England, Michigan (South Lyon, Fowlerville, Albion, Hersey, Paris, Big Rapids, Kalamazoo) and now Pennsylvania.

6. People I want to know more about: Although I was excited to get tagged for this, I'm super uncomfortable tagging other people. Kind of makes me think of chain letters. So, if you are interested in doing this meme...consider yourself tagged!


  1. Another person who has lived in England! Thats why I lov NaComLeavMo, you find out the oddest things about people! Thanks for answering.

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog!

    I am definitely afraid of going crazy at home with baby all day... thanks for the validation on that.

    Coincidentally, my birthday is February 11 (a most fabulous day) and I grew up not too far from South Lyon. In fact, I took an ACT prep course there back in the day. :)

  3. Hello there...a NCLMer here just popping in! I have never lived outside the states however I have visited Egypt, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the UK....including Wales, Ireland, Scotland....Greece and several other places...I love to travel...and a BILLION DOLLARS....holy cow! What I wouldn't do for just a million! LOL

    Big Hugs!

  4. Ooh, I did this meme a couple of weeks ago. I'm always fascinated to see what kinds of things people will put. For some reason, I focus on snacks, but maybe that's just because I'm hungry?

    Here from NaComLeavMo.

  5. This looks like fun! I may have to tag myself. ;)

  6. Thank you for stopping by earlier in the week, Katt! If you want to do another fun meme, consider yourself tagged for the one in my blog today ;o)

    (I might try yours soon, as well)

  7. I'm going to consider myself tagged, I love these games! And I'm trying to post a new blog entry each day during NCLM and I'm having problems being interesting enough to do that!!
    Thanks for the idea. :)

    (here from NCLM)

  8. wow you have lived in a lot of places!

    thanks for posting on my blog! And you more then welcome to steal my fabric idea, since really I stole it from Starbucks!

  9. Stomping over from NCLM

    I actually lived in England for a bit to. I read up a little, and I want to send you Congrats for PN, and hugs for PA!! Hang in there, he sounds like a special little boy!!!


  10. NCLM! Thanks for your comment.

    Places I've lived: Michigan (born in the city of Detroit, grew up in Warren and Bloomfield Hills, went to school in Ann Arbor, got moved to Midland for a job, relocated to Troy, then Farmington Hills, then Rochester then Farmington Hills again) then moved cross country to California (San Jose and Los Gatos)...but traveled for business in lots of other locales. Phew. I'm exhausted thinking about it...

  11. My husband and I both attended Kalamazoo College, and we both did foreign study in England as well. I guess it's a small world (where somehow we wind up living the same places as you). :)

  12. Coming by - from England - to say thank you for coming by my blog. it is much appreciated.

    I've lived in England, Iran and Switzerland. 10 years ago I was starting out on IF treatments.

  13. I feel the same. I've been tagged once and didn't mind answering it but I almost feel like I'm spamming people to pass one on.

  14. Wow England to PA - what a change! NCLM
