Tagged and this is how it goes...

So I've been tagged by Bonnie. Wow, talk about a walk down the memory tagging lane! Lets see if I can think that far back!

4 things I was doing 10 years ago (1998):
~I gave birth to my first son (thats huge!)
~We moved out of my parents house into our own place.
~Bought our very first new car (well new to us)
~Worked as an optician in an Eye Clinic

4 things I was doing 5 years ago (2003):
~Went to work as an Underwriter for a Mortgage company
~I now had two sons (oldest now 5; gave birth to the 2nd in 2001 which made him 2)
~Bought our very first home!
~Took lessons in Tongil Moo Do (its a form of Karate)

4 things I did yesterday:
(wow a glimpse into the life of Me is quite boring actually!)
~Folded Laundry
~Took a nap with the twins (as they were fussy ALL day)
~Watched the Golden Compass (while eating cold spaghetti with Italian sausage Mmm.. hey someone had to deal with the Cranky Bots while everyone else ate)
~Watched the Hub school our friends at some online Mario Kart (would have joined in but again.. I had the twins- Yay me! Needless to say I went to bed EARLY last night and by early I mean I fell asleep with my clothes on trying to get Oli to go back to sleep.)

4 shows I love to watch:
(In no particular order except for how they popped into my head)
~The Reaper
~CSI (any of the series it doesn't matter I'm just hooked on crime solving! *wink)
~Dr. Who (you have got to love the BBC!!)

4 things that make me really happy:

~Good children (polite, well behaved, good listeners that is!)
~A clean house! (Nothing better than to sit back and relax knowing its all been done and you can sigh relief of a job well done.)
~Sales in the scrapbook dept at JoAnn Fabric! (The only place I could spend tons money!)
~A Good HOT soak in a tub with a Lush Bath Bomb and a good book! (not to mention the doors locked with music silently playing to drown out the sound of rug rats screaming and yelling and knocking on the door constantly!)

That was surprisingly more complicated than I thought it was going to be. Looking back on parts of my life- I really didn't do anything all that worth while.
*Note to self- Be more interesting in the next four years!

So now I get to tag people! Mwahaha!! I tag you: Arizona, Jenny, Lyndsey and Tracy
I can't wait to read what your past reveals! *wink

+1 (Not that bad seeing as I switched to phase 2 and was able to eat more carbs and sweets. I'm ok with it. I'll try to get more physical time in and maybe get that lb off for next week!)

this was fun to read - not sure how 'fun' mine will be - or if I have half a brain to remember what I did yesterday, much less 10 years ago, ugh.

Thanks for playing along. It was fun to get to read about your life. It will be fun for your kids in the future. I also LOVE a quiet bubble bath with a good book. Clean houses are a wonderful thing. I also have been wanting to watch the Dr. Who series. Where do you watch it?

Erin - I have a question about how you put names in your blog that when clicked on - you can go to their site - how did you do that? - you can email me the answer as well.

It was fun reading about you. I am looking forward to playing myself :) I'm pretty sure there will be nothing interesting.

Don't be too hard about the 1 lb. Give your body time to adjust to your new food intake :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. 4 boys IS a blast isn't it. :) You have a beautiful family... i'll be back to read more!

Oh, they thought our twins were monoamniotic but they found the membrane at my last u/s. What miracle babies you have indeed. God is so great!

talk to you soon,
