"Tag! I'm IT"

Do you remember those days on the playground back in elementary school? The one, sad, little, pathetic kid who no one played with? That little kid would play tag all by herself . . counting out "eenie, meenie, minee, moe", then she would chase herself, declaring herself "it". So sad!

Well! I'm that kid -- I was surfing blogs yesterday, found a meme -- and without being tagged I am declaring myself "It!"

#1 - 5 Years Ago:

  • I was busy thinking how hard my life was while being completely oblivious to the fact that it was going to get much, much harder. I was also busy being oblivious that I had a greater capacity to love and to learn faith.
Man, these serious answers to stuff get to me . . .

#2 - 5 Things On My To-Do List Today:

  • Clean out my scrapbook room
  • Plan out meals for the next two weeks and go grocery shopping
  • Find the swimsuit/t-shirt order form for swim team
  • Put the mail in the mail box
  • Plant the new flowers that I bought before they die
As a side-note, these were all on my To-Do list yesterday too.

#3 - 5 Snacks I Enjoy:

  • The Sugary Ones
  • The Salty Ones
  • The Frozen Ones
  • The Fizzy Diet Ones
  • The Crunchy Ones
Let's face it, I wouldn't be participating in the neighborhood Biggest Loser contest if didn't enjoy practically EVERY snack. More notable than snacks I enjoy would be 5 snacks I DON'T enjoy:

  • Corn Nuts. After eating them for an hour in the car, getting out of the car for fresh air and then getting back in the corn nut fume-infested car: "Thanks, I'll pass on any more corn nuts!"

  • Burnt Almond Fudge ice cream. Ok, under extreme circumstances when that's the ONLY ice cream in the house, I will partake. But it's not one I really enjoy - chocolate with nuts . . frozen together. . . not delicious.

  • Pinto Bean Pie. Don't let the Auntie's bring pie to Thanksgiving . . . .

  • Blue Powerade at the gas station drink fountain. What's this even suppose to taste like? It's like blue Kool-aid watered down. (Now give me blue Kool-aid in a baggie with some sugar and my wet finger and I'll eat the whole dang thing!)

  • Boston Baked Beans. Nothing to say . . . they just don't do it for me. (I will eat Boston Baked Beans if left alone in a room with them and nothing else in sight ~ particularly during PMS season)

#4 - 5 Places I Have Lived:

  • My parent's house in Sandy, Utah

  • Apartment 23 in Rexburg, Idaho

  • The Glynhill Apartments in Salt Lake City

  • Our first home in West Jordan

  • Our home of 11 years in Pleasant Grove
It's hard to imagine that someone could be more well travelled than I. Sometimes I toy with the idea of getting a passport ~ but as long as Arizona, Idaho and California keep their borders open, I'm probably safe without it.

#5 - 5 Jobs That I Have Had:

  • Specialty Fry Cook at Jack in the Box (Yeah, there used to be one in Sandy, Utah . . and I don't recommend making out with your boyfriend on the roof)

  • Data Entry at Medical Information place. (When you leave your place of employment don't have your new boyfriend leave a nasty message for your boss in Portuguese . . . who knew it could so easily be translated)

  • Medical Document procurer at Medical Information place. (Desperate people will hire you back after receiving a nasty message in Portuguese)

  • Secretary at an elementary school. (Best gig ever! I loved being in school with my kids!)

Again, I would tag some of you with this and have you answer these questions on your blog . . . . but I'll just leave it up to you. If you're the kind of kid who would've reached out to the poor, suffering little girl playing tag all by herself . . . . then you'll give this meme a try. (Ah, the power of guilt!)

I would play, but I did this one a while back. I will have to revisit mine. I don't think my answers were nearly as entertaining as yours.
I enjoyed getting to know you better. I enjoyed our little "speed dating" session. (LOL)

Wendi- This is totally like speed dating. I'm going to have to look back for yours so I can get to know you better too. I just haven't been able to get over the Reynolds Wrap post of yours. If anyone hasn't seen it, check it out:

It's so funny!

Here is the link to the tag:

Just as I said...not as entertaining as yours.
