Meme from Marji

What was I doing ten years ago? I was on bed rest with my second son and attempting to keep up with my job in Human Resources for Sears at their corporate headquarters in Hoffman Estates. I was fiesty and tired of Chicago's notorious power outages when it gets too hot and having to go and stay in a hotel to cool down. DH was in dental school at Northwestern University.
2. What are five things on my to-do list today? Finish sleeve on Lady Sweater, Take DS#2 to ortho appointment, Arrange service for DH's hummer, Meet friends daugther at airport, and attend golf lesson.
3. Snacks I enjoy. Chocolate (english candy bars are, of course, my favorite). Twix is my all time favorite candy bar. Cereal (I could eat it 24-7, of course, only once it's been nuked for one minute in the microwave) Honey Smacks and Special K are my favorites. Oatmeal, but I like that served cold. Licorice Allsorts. Pear Drops. Hum Bugs and Chocolate limess.

4. Things I would do if I were a billioniare? Okay, I'm with Marji on this one ... I'd buy a house in the UP (Northern Michigan Peninsula). Buy homes for my parents in both AZ and WI so that they could visit both kids and get them checked out and health taken care of by REAL (non-national health uk drs) doctors and provide them with all the medical care they would need. Buy a lot of land suitable for lots of off-road vehicle driving for DH to play with his hummer and his new fleet of hummers. Set up trust funds for kids, nephews and nieces. Donate to my church. Donate money to find a cure for Celiac Disease and Trigeminal Neuralgia. Get the parts of my body put back in the same place they were before having four children. Enjoy treating friends and helping them fulfill their dreams. Build a new home.

5. Places I have lived? Torquay, Devon, England; Las Vegas, NV (2 different addresses); Salt Lake City, UT (four different addresses); Buffalo Grove, IL; Schaumburg, IL; Wausau, WI (2 different addresses).

6. Peeps I want to know more about. Is there anyone anywhere that hasn’t already done this? Denise, Jessica, Charity, Sue, ??

For someone who enjoys chocolate, you're skinny!

My answer for #4 would include ... suck out the parts of me that weren't there before children ;-)

Marji said...

LOL, ROFLMAO on Marina's reply.

Yeah, well, me too.
I didn't know you'd lived that many places in Chicago area. See, these things are informative.

The DH has a Hummer? I want one more than I'm prepared to admit, not that I'd ever spend that kind of cash on a [insert tone of derision] vehicle. Yarn, yes.
