Okay, so I’ve been tagged by two different people and haven’t responded to either of them yet. Danielle, your tag was too open-ended (list 5 things about myself? With no helping questions? I can’t think like that!), so I’m just responding to Carrie’s. At least there’s a little direction to this one!

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Hmmm…I have 3 kids…I can’t think back that far! Okay, 10 years ago I had graduated from Ricks and was spending the year living with my parents and working at Rite Aid. Ah, Rite Aid. At Christmastime. I think that was the year the registers all quit working. On Christmas Eve. In Park City, the craziest, busiest winter resort town in Utah. We had to ring EVERYTHING up by hand. Fun times.

What was I doing 5 years ago?
Working as a recess teacher (a term I prefer to “duty”) at Challenger School. And living in what we fondly refer to as “the 70’s apartment”. You know, the one with the brown and orange linoleum, brown shag carpet, and harvest gold appliances.

What was I doing 1 year ago?
The same thing I’m doing today, apparently: enjoying the beautiful Oregon winter weather (and if you’ve ever been to Oregon in the winter, you’ll catch the sarcasm there). Keeping busy with a 1st grader, a preschooler, and a 1-year-old. Probably just starting my Christmas shopping.

What was I doing yesterday?
Hanging out on with Vicki. It’s where her pet Chihuahua Rosey lives, and she was showing me around. And baking cookies. And reading stories. It was a good day.

5 snacks I enjoy
Anything chocolate, cookies, cheese, fruit, more chocolate

5 things I would do if I had a million dollars
Sign my kids up for all the sports/dance/gymnastics/preschool/piano lessons that we can’t afford to sign them up for right now, buy a piano (which would be useful when we sign the kids up for piano lessons, buy a bigger car, build the cabin that Chris designed, and buy you a green dress, but not a real green dress…that’s cruel. Oh, yeah, and save save save!

5 places I would run away to
England, the rest of Europe, the Carribean (‘cause I’ve never been there but would love to), Utah (not exactly exciting, but that’s where family is), and…I can’t think of a 5th place.

5 T.V. shows I like
House. So You Think You Can Dance (NOT Dancing With the Stars). Ummm…I don’t really watch T.V.

5 things I hate doing
Laundry. Looking at my kids’ closet. Laundry. Mopping. Laundry.

5 biggest joys of the moment
Vicki, Lexi, Ellie, Chris, imagining the girls’ faces Christmas morning

And now I tag…Danielle and Nicola…and anyone else who’s reading this and has a blog and hasn’t already been tagged with this one or tagged me with it. Ha!


  1. Ah, the 70's apartment. Everyone must have an experience with a giant gold couch (except me). Tee hee. Isn't it fun to go down memory lane?

  2. I'm sad I never got to see that apartment, Allie. It sounds splendiferous.

  3. So, if I get tagged with "List 40 things about yourself," I guess I won't tag you. (I've actually seen that one). Anyway, I would like to have seen that apartment. We had one that we nicknamed "the rathole."
