Tagged......you're IT!

Tagged and I didn't even realize for a couple of days. What a treat! My friend, In A Garden, has tagged me. I have seen the tagging going on and I wondered if I would ever get chosen. I hope this helps you to get to know me a little better. I have loved going to visit so many beautiful sites and I hope to get my blog up to speed with the bells and whistles soon.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was working in the same field, but close to home. I thought I'd be at that location until I retired, but found out God had other things for me. I was attending some writer's conferences and dabbling in some drawing. I was on-call 24/7 so plans were often scrambled. I was finishing up my degree after twenty five years of going to school off and on and changing majors until I was dizzy. I finally obtained a business degree. That's not where my heart is, but it served its purpose.

My five favorite snacks.
Dates with cream cheese
Cheese on crackers
Carrot cake
Dostios with melted cheese Cheese is a very good thing!

Five things on my to do list today:
Call my husband and daughter
Clean up the kitchen
Plan out what to wear to work tomorrow
Send a thank you note.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Help with some very needy ministries
Put huge amounts in cancer research
Set up programs for inner city kids
Help some physicians I know with their mission trips
Build a community center to teach writing and art to all ages and backgrounds

Five jobs that I've had:
Library worker in high school
Social worker
Technical manager

Five bad habits of mine:
If something is good, I usually think a lot is better. It isn't always better, just more.
Trying to do too many projects at once
Not delegating enough
Letting my car get dirty
Waiting until the last minute to do Christmas shopping

Five places I've lived:
Indianapolis, Indiana
Lake Worth, Florida
Augusta, Georgia
Atlanta, Georgia

Five random things people wouldn't know about me:

I'm usually very conservative, but married my husband after dating him for 6 weeks.
My husband is thirteen years my junior.
I was adopted.
I wrote a letter to Marilyn Monroe when I was a little girl and she wrote back to me. She absolutely fascinated me and I guess she still does.
I had an imaginary friend and dog until I went to kindergarten. Jimmy and Scruffy.

Five cds that I'd have to take on a desert island:
Andrea Bocelli
Chris Tomlin
Natalie Grant
James Taylor

I love your answers, and feel I now know you better. Very interesting about the Marilyn Monroe letter. Please scan and post it, if you can.. I'd love to see it. Or at least give us a peek at what she wrote back?

dates and cream cheese? I've never heard of that, but cream cheese goes with just about anything so its probably quite tasty...

Married after six weeks? Wow, a whirlwind courtship!

Pat said...

It was fun learning more about you Nanatrish! I love Andrea Bocelli too! :-)

Thank you SO much for coming and visiting my blog! Isn't Lavinia just lovely! I have met some of the most wonderful people through my blog.

I love that you married your husband after 6 weeks! I married mine after 3 months but was engaged after 6 weeks. (I met him on the internet...don't tell! lol)
