Socrates said, "An unexamined life is not worth living." So I did some examining and now provide the following:
Where Were You Five Years Ago?
This was a really tough one to answer because, as you all know, my brain is like a colander - full of holes! So I really had to think about this and employ some creative math to figure out where I was five years ago!
Five years ago, Man-Child was a mere babe at the age of 11. He was coming to the end of his fifth grade year - and the upcoming school year was more nerve-racking for us than most rising sixth graders. He was moving up to middle school; but not with his friends. He'd be moving to a new school. He was anxious, I was anxious, Hubby acted oblivious. But it turned out to be the best decision we could have made - thank God!
he was just a baby!
Sorry for the quality....but in order to get a picture of him these days, I have to be like a stealth ninja!
If my recollection is correct (cause I'm really, really iffy here....) I believe I had just moved into the department I'm currently in - moving from what, at least for me, was a very, very toxic environment. So I was very excited and happy with the move.
Where Would You Like To Be Five Years From Now?
Usually, I'm a "take each day as it comes" kind of gal, so I had to reflect on this one a bit. It goes without saying that I hope to be alive, healthy and happy. Man-Child should be finishing up his Junior year in college (it boggles the mind to think that! I mean seriously, look how much he's changed in just the past five years!) I imagine at that point Hubby and I will have settled into some kind of semi-empty nest routine - and hopefully, we will still like each other.....
What Five Snacks Do You Enjoy?
Truthfully, I'm not much of a snacker. Occasionally, I enjoy popcorn in the evenings but other than that....not one for snacks. Sometimes at work, you may find me reaching for a piece of chocolate from the dish on my desk...but that's usually out of boredom. Hmmmm? Does wine count?
What Would You Do If You Were A Billionaire?
This was, by far, the most difficult question. I pondered and pondered. I have come to the conclusion that I should NEVER be a billionaire because apparently I lack the imagination to figure out how to spend that much money!
My first thought was to take care of Man-Child's education, that goes without saying. My second was to travel. I would go everywhere (making a point, of course, to meet all my blog friends along the way!). Obviously, I would take care of those near and dear to me. I would also most likely set up scholarships for needy children and be very generous to those charities that touch my heart & that do the most good.
Without further ado, I pass the tag along to:
and, of course, anyone else who would like to join in......
And for the record? This post has been pure hell to post - apparently Blogger doesn't like Mozilla. Just so ya know.
