Tagged Again :-)

I was tagged yesterday by Sam at Sticks, Strings & Crafty Things. As most of my knitting buddies are still getting to know me, I will happily oblige and answer the questions:

"The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer."

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was moving to the USA (from England)! We moved to Pasadena MD in April 1998. Jason was being stationed at Ft Meade for a 3 year training program. I was driving on the right side of the road, which is the wrong side not the right side, ha ha J It took a little getting used to! And I was looking for a job so I didn’t get bored staying at home on my own in a new country!

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
do laundry, empty dishwasher and clear up kitchen, go to the library, pick Kristen up from school, make dinner (it’s an easy day today) ;-)

3) Snacks I enjoy:
Sweet: Cadbury’s chocolate
Savory: Lays Cheese and Sour Cream chips (trying not to even buy these right now so I can eat more healthy!)

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Live close to my family in a BIG house with an ocean view. (Preferably a mansion with lots of guest quarters that we can all live in together) :-)

5) Places I have lived:
UK: Sunderland, Bury St Edmunds, Mildenhall.

USA: Pasadena MD, Severna Park MD, Leander TX

6) Jobs I have had:
I left school at age 16 and my first job was in a library, but it was only temporary. Then I got a clerical assistant position with the DHSS. Got promoted to Clerical Officer and worked in the Social Security office in Bury until I moved to the USA and got a job as an Office Manager. I left that job to become a SAHM.
3 years ago I got my Real Estate license and worked as a Realtor for about 2 years. I quit when we thought we were moving to Denver, but we changed our plans and stayed in TX. I wanted to be a SAHM again as real estate was too stressful for me, so that’s what I do now.

7) Peeps I wanna know more about:

Amanda (but she's already been tagged so I'll just check her answers later)

Leslie (she's been tagged too)




But only if they feel like sharing!

OK, I'm off to knit me some more baby stuff!

As was said above, "It is nice to get to know you better". I love "Peeking", "fly on the wall", type things.
