Trivial Information

I am so out of my blogging groove, being away from home. I'm not sure why, since I have full internet access and can even take my mom's MacBook anywhere in the house (I have an iMac at home. not portable.). So today I saw these questions on Amanda's blog and now you get to learn trivial information about me. Lucky you!

1) What was I doing ten years ago?

I had been married for just over 3 months and Greg was on tour with Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn, so he was only home for 24 hrs every 2-3 weeks (for 9 months). I had just working for a large law firm downtown and quickly realized that I hated it. I was not yet knitting, but it was around this time that I started scrapbooking.

2) What are five things on my to-do list for today:

  • Catch up on reading some blogs
  • Work on the sock I'm knitting
  • Call a new friend that I met on Monday and try to get together with her
  • Remind Greg to go to the bank before 2:00
  • Watch The Water Horse

3) Snacks I enjoy:

  • Terry's Chocolate Oranges
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  • Doritos (original, not the flavored ones)
  • Blue Diamond Natural almonds (especially the vanilla bean ones)

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

  • Repay both my parents and Greg's for all the financial help they have given us over the years
  • Pour massive amounts into my church
  • Ensure long-term full support for my friend and her husband who are missionaries with YWAM in South Africa
  • Buy a Wii and whatever games I wanted to go with it
  • Buy or build a bigger house with a normal-sized bathroom (ours is tiny)

5) Places I have lived:

  • I was born and raised in Decatur, IL
  • spent 4 years in college in Wheaton, IL
  • lived for a year after college in Newquay, Cornwall (England)
  • lived with my sister for a year in Champaign, IL after returning from England
  • moved to Nashville once Greg and I were married

6) Jobs I have had:

  • Administrative Asst./Personal Lackey for a real estate developer (truly one of the most horrible people I have ever met)
  • Administrative Asst. for the Human Resources Director at a large law firm
  • Worked for a friend's merchandising company (no title, it was just me and him)
  • Teaching both piano and violin
