I've been tagged. SOOOOOOOOO this is the drill. a little bit about myself.

What was I doing ten years ago?

Ten years ago, our oldest child was finishing up her freshman year in college. Which would have meant I still had 3 very busy kids at home. Which equates to driving, a LOT! DH was traveling between here and Princeton New Jersey 4 days a week. My sewing was pretty much as it is now. Smocking for gifts and trying to improve my embroidery skills. One big project I was working on was a christening gown. Surprise. But sadly I have no pictures of that gown.

What are the five things on my list to do today?

  1. Buy groceries.
  2. Vacuum, especially the stairs. I avoid them like the plague.
  3. See Molly's baby boy for the first time. I have no grandchildren yet, but baby daughter's best friend has a baby now and he is coming to visit. I can hardly wait.
  4. Pull a few more threads. My pink linen gown is almost ready to be embroidered. Only 2 more squares to do the drawn thread work on. Yeah!
  5. Mop the kitchen.
  6. Finish unpacking from my trip and do the laundry that goes with it.

What are my favorite snacks?

Chocolate of course. Depending on my mood whether I want it in candy, cookie, warm or cold.

Things I would do if I were a millionaire.

  1. Way more charitable giving.
  2. Buy a house in Kirkwood.
  3. Buy a house on the Gulf Coast
  4. Put some $$ in a retirement fund.
  5. Buy a new sewing machine. And an embroidery machine,
  6. Have a DAILY housekeeper. Life is too short to clean if you don't have to.
  7. Have the yard professionally landscaped.
  8. Travel. Places I want to see, Greece, Paris, Rome, Alaska, Australia.
  9. Attend every stitching school I can fit in.
  10. Have an apartment in every town my children live in so I can visit when ever I want and not feel like I am intruding.
