For Your Information

My good buddy "J" tagged me to do this revealing blogger activity.

Ten Years Ago
I was pregnant and barfing my brains out and completely miserable. I swore I would never have more than one child and wondered if I would ever feel like my normal self again. Actually, I'd long forgotten what my "normal" self felt like. I laid on the couch and watched daytime TV and considered calling the depression hot line because I could answer "yes" to all 6 questions.

Five Places I've Visited
I've always wanted to go back to Lugano, Switzerland. I spent one night there and thought it was absolutely beautiful. I would have listed Como, Italy, but I didn't visit there...I only drove by at high speeds with my dad, grandma and grandpa during an automobile tour of Europe in which half of the people were too old to actually get out of the car and walk anywhere.

New York City--when I first arrived, I knew that I would never leave. After three months I couldn't wait to get back to Utah. So I guess I was wrong.

Moran State Park, Orcas Island, Washington--we camped here when we lived on San Juan Island and I've always wanted to go back. Anyone want to make it a group camp out?

Disneyland--I was just there a week ago! Good times.

Homer, Alaska--The halibut capital of the world, a hundred miles from a Wal-Mart, located in the banana belt of Alaska.

Five Things on my To-Do List
1. Order sugar snap pea seeds from seed catalog, plant pea seeds in garden
2. Pull up all the pavers in the back yard, organize and reorganize them into groovy, mosaic-type path-ways.
3. Make Ethan an appointment with the orthodontist for an evaluation.
4. Get quotes from cement people and yard grading people.
5. Write, edit, write.

I Enjoy...
(This will come as no surprise to most) Reading, writing, checking blogs, requesting books through the library, getting book recommendations.

Five Things You May Not Know About Me
1. I wish I never got my ears pierced (just one hole each, but I never use them, so what's the point?)
2. I'm still in love with the white leather fringe boots I wore in high school, even though I don't have them anymore.
3. I'm not bothered by long periods of solitude.
4. I have no plans to ever attend a high school reunion.
5. I sometimes throw away pennies.

Now, I'm supposed to tag 3-10 people (I'm not sure of the exact amount) to carry on this activity. (Keep it going or bad luck will come to you, blah, blah, blah.) So I choose Darcy, Betsy and Catherine and Angela. I'm also tagging Corrin because girl, there are tumbleweeds rolling through your blog. I totally made up the part about bad luck, so if you don't want to do it, I'm sure your luck will not be affected.

I'm happy to be tagged. I like these things, plus I need something to blog about this week before I leave on my trip. But (everyone I know has a big butt) in return, you have to do you 100 !! :)

Betty Grace said...

p.s. Reading other people's 100 helps write your own. Link from my blog to my siblings (Stephanie, Heidi and Darren) and read their 100 (I think they're pretty good). Darren just started blogging and he's pretty entertaining all around.

I started making a list of 100 and only got to 28. I used 5 of those things on this activity, so now my 100 will have repeats. I'll keep working on it.

This totally cracked me up. I will get started on mine right away!

J said...

Angela Hunter said...
