Jen at Life in Small Town USA tagged me today! I'm in a bit of a funk and was glad to have this to blog about instead of a bitter diatribe...okay, I promise I would have spared you the sarcastic, depressed entry. Anyway...

What I was doing 10 yrs ago:
I was working at Conner Prairie, getting ready to travel to Scotland for 2 1/2 weeks, and planning to start college in the fall to major in dental hygiene.

Five things on my to do list for today:
1) Work
2) Send out a couple of e-mails
3) Make pizza with the kids
4) Fold laundry
5) Have a family night (unfortunately Andrew has to work late so just the boys and me!)

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1) Adopt many more kids.
2) Start a non-profit to give adoption grants.
3) Donate to Compassion International, Wycliffe Bible Translators, and Samaritan's Purse.
4) Build a sustainable home on several acres.
5) Open a lunch and dessert restaurant.
6) Travel.
7) Invest and save for our children's future and our retirement.
8) Hire a maid for cleaning & laundry. :)

Three of my bad habits:
1) Chewing ice.
2) Forgetting about laundry.
3) Leaving the driver's seat too far forward for my tall husband.

Five places I have lived:
1) Indiana
2) Chicago, Illinois
3) Central Illinois
4) Kansas
5) Florida

Five jobs I have had:
1) Babysitter
2) Autism Therapist
3) Historical Interpreter
4) Dental Hygienist
5) Event Planner

If you would like to join in the fun, please do!

Autism therapist....what an interesting job! I volunteered one summer at a school for children with autism when I was in 8th grade. I didn't get the impact of what I was doing until many, many years later. I bet you were fantastic as a therapist!

Jen - I really enjoyed being a theraptist! I worked with one little boy several years ago - he is doing GREAT now!

Thanks for stopping by, Ian! We really like what Compassion does!

Mailee - I think you know...I lived in Lincoln. :) Didn't Kurt go to school there?

I like your idea about adopting many more kids and hiring a maid for cleaning and laundry. Sounds good to me too.
