All about me...Hummm in a nutshell!

This tagging really taxes my brain!

5 Things I was doing 10 years ago.. 5 things... Hummmm. Woooza
1. Well, the one thing I know is I'm too old to remember clearly back that far..Old age but I'll guess!
2. I think that's when we all went to visit Shauna in College(BYU Hawaii) and lounged on the beach. I do love the sun..
3. Joel was finishing up his Mission in Anaheim Calif. or maybe he was home and off to
Rick's College.
4. I worked in a Podiatry office and learned to like and enjoy OLD people.(That were patients)

5. Trying to figure out life and be a good Mom and wife (hummm or not)

5 Things on my to do list today...
1. Make fudge for the weekend
2. Wrap presents and fight the line at the Post Office
3. Wash and bleach all the dingy church tablecloths

5. Motivate myself to go to Balley's

5 Snacks I enjoy

5 Things I would do if I were a billionaire

5. Invest the rest so we could retire, help our kids in need and relax and enjoy life.

5 Bad Habits
1. I always set my bedroom clock 10 mins. fast. I know this and so I hit snooze for the next 25 minutes. It drives my husband nutz.
2. Skipping Sunday School class and talking to my young friends in the hallway.
3. Thinking the phone only rings one way... By not calling my parents, brother, kids, friends....etc.
4. Dwelling on the things I can't change instead of living life to the fullest
5. I have a rigid routine in the AM. Don't talk to me until after my shower, hair and makeup are done . No matter where I'm at this has to be my "anal" routine. My girls know this and accommodate me well. They don't want to see the mother bear come alive in bear mode!

5 Things you may not know about me...
1. Each Day I still think about my sister and miss her more than anyone could ever imagine. I have some crazy little superstitions that seem so real. Before she died she said she would always be with me no matter what, but I would have to figure out how to recognize her spirit. I have a Special rose garden dedicated to her since most of the roses are hers. I was feeling kinda down on Monday and was walking to get the mail and almost stopped dead in my steps. Her favorite rose bush is a yellow one. That rose bush had one new beautiful blooming rose! It's winter, it's cold and my roses have already been semi trimmed... but their sat the most beautiful rose ever! Superstition....hummmmm I'd like to call it an angel from heaven is still in my life. The next day I found a penny in the street which is a angel sprinkling blessings from above. Call it what you want but I know I'm protected from above. NEXT DAY....... Since I'm slow at finishing this game.. I have a little addition. Today, a day later I just walked out to get the paper. I now have 5 more roses about to bloom. Crazy or Angels????
2. Because I'm protected from is great!
3. I snore.. So Rick says, but I haven't woke myself up yet like he does when he snores!!!
4. I love to listen to music during the day....actually anytime. I don't much like a quiet house. That must go back to the days of raising the 5.
5. I wear socks to bed... Maybe nothing else but always socks!!

Now I tag five people....Diana, Emily, and any other YSA Friends of mine!

AH that is the sweetest thing ever! I don't even know what to write. Love your story about Aunt Jo. We think of her often as well. I am glad you are able to recognize her spirit and have that blessing in your life. I think you are crazy. . .:) and you do have angels protecting you. Love you. Thanks for sharing your story. It made my day and my heart melt.
