Tagged by Mike for this Meme

Mike at Rambling Stuff tagged me a few weeks ago for this meme. Finally, here it is! Thank you, Mike, this was fun and a challenge to my memory. LOL

WHAT WERE YOU DOING 10 YEARS AGO; That's a long time ago - it's hard to remember. Either I just started at Suite101 where I would meet some great friends or I was working at Eye on the Web, which closed up shop without paying me.

WHAT ARE THE 5 THINGS ON YOUR "TO DO" LIST; Post this meme, get caught up with my blogging buddies, get my writing time in, contact the company that has not refunded my money on a cancelled order, check out some markets, and clean the bathroom.

3)SNACKS THAT YOU ENJOY; cheese cake, blueberries, and chocolate.

4) THINGS I DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE; Pay bills, college fund for grandchildren, share with children siblings and friends, setup a grant so no child in my town goes without, donate to various charities, get the latest equipment for my husband to pursue his hobby of car restoration (he is really good at it!) and build myself an observatory!

5) PLACES WHERE I HAVE LIVED; Only a few places in NH!

6)BAD HABITS THAT I HAVE; Not sticking to an exercise regimine and being disorganized. If I fail to make a list, I get overwhelmed and don't know where to start on anything - result: I accomplish nothing.

7) JOBS THAT I HAVE HAD; baby sitter, soda jerk, waitress, nanny, auto body helper, vice president & president of citizen's group, speech writer, researcher, public speaker, assembly worker, newsletter writer, web writer, web managing editor, freelance writer.

Sorry, I know I am supposed to tag people, but I don't. If you decide to do this meme, please post to let me know so I can check it out. :-)

Good meme, Tina. Now you have me hungry because cheesecake, blueberries and chocolate are my favorites too (and Fritos - lol).

I too have only lived in my home state, except for a year and 1/2 in Ft. Lauderdale. I like to visit places but after a while, I'm ready to come back home.

Home is home...:)

I enjoyed reading your meme. Cheesecake and blueberries are also favorites of mine. Dark chocolate is another but I get to indulge in that so seldom because of my diabetes.

Take care, my friend. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Love and hugs,

Tina Coruth said...

Thank you, Deborah. I like Fritos, too!

There are lots of places I loved to visit, but as Dorothy said, "There's no place like home!" :-)

Thank you! It's funny, I always loved blueberries and chocolate, even as a kid. I never tasted cheesecake until I was an adult. I fell in love with it at first bite. LOL

I'm sorry you have to be so careful about the chocolate. Are you allowed to have sugar replacements such as Splenda? There are some chocolate makers that make delicious chocolates without real sugar.

Love & Hugs,

Hi Tina,

I enjoyed your meme! You have had some interesting and varied jobs. And guess what? Cheesecake, blueberries and chocolate are favorites of mine as well. lol. We have a lot in commong around here.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, my friend.



Tina Coruth said...

Hi Renie,

Thank you, my friend. :-)

Some of those jobs were definitely more fun than others. Waitressing was the hardest job. As a result I'm a big advocate of generous tips!

It's really fun to see how many of us love the same treats.

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, too.

How fun to learn more about you in this way. I'm glad Mike 'tagged' you for this one. I've only lived in a few places too ... but in California where I was born. You've sure had lots more jobs than me!

I did it a while back on a Monday ... it’s in the last half of Fun Monday #4 (the post where I shared some awards too) ... so check it out when time permits!
Hugs and blessings,

Hi, Tina! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving a nice comment. ;-) Yes, I've made the big move to WordPress and am really loving it. I'm going to try to get a new post up this weekend. Life has kept me so busy, I just haven't had as much time as I'd like for blogging/visiting my favorite blogs. :'( I'm trying to get caught up though!

I love cheesecake, blueberries, and chocolate too. Yummo!


Tina Coruth said...

Hi Storyteller,

Thank you! I look forward to checking out Fun Monday #4, as well as getting caught up with your posts.

I hope you are having a good weekend.


Tina Coruth said...
