Tagged and some good news

I've been tagged! So I'm supposed to write some exciting stuff about myself and then ask other people to do the same thing. Here goes!

10 years ago:

Ahh, 1998. The year I finished High School in Radnor, Pennsylvania, spent the summer teaching canoeing at an all girls' camp and left for my first semester at BYU. I guess ten years ago today I was actually not quite done high school but almost and definitely iching to get out of town!

5 things on my 'to do' list today:

Well, let's see...

1) feed, dress and keep a clean diaper on Nora
2) library storytime
3) time-out for Nora for running away from me and screaming in the library
4) nap (battle) then bath (battle) for Nora
5) visiting teaching

I guess that pretty much sums it up!

Snacks I enjoy:

These pregnant days, it's any salty chips I can get my hands on! And this great new specialty edition ice cream that Edy's makes called 'most orange-inal'- it tastes just like the yummiest creamsicle of all your childhood summers!

What I would do if I was suddenly made a billionare:

Oh the possiblities! First, I already have the house picked out. We just need more space- for practical reasons, of course. I'd probably update my wardrobe, enroll Nora is the greatest toddler and mom education programs available, and have dinner delivered to our doorstep every night! Oh yea, we also need a really great get-away vacation. Something tropical... twice a year... All selfish, I know! I hope I'd search out some great charities in all the free time I'd have not making dinner.
Oh yea, and we'd finally fix the back bumper on the carolla where I backed into a fire hydrant.

3 of my bad habits:

These days,
1. Losing or almost losing my temper- most times this involves Nora and her carseat, shopping cart, or stroller- the little girl is almost stronger than me!
2. Falling asleep in the chair in Nora's room at her bedtime- too tired to move!
3. Over eating junk food at every possible opportunity- hate that!

5 places I have lived:

1) Wayne, Pa
2) Provo, Ut
3) Orem, Ut
4) Dayton, Oh (only 12 weeks but I needed this to add to 5!)
5) Boston area, Ma

Things people don't know about me:

I hate roller coasters, I'm usually a night owl (except when pregnant), I love sleeping in (but never do anymore), one of my worst fears involves speaking in front of crowds.

Sorry this took so long for me to finally do! I was tagged almost 2 weeks ago and have been putting it off ever since- should have added procrastination to my list of bad habits!

The good news that I promised at the end of all this useless information is that Josh passed his qualifying exams! All those lonely days and nights as a single parent have suddenly been validated. Only 2 1/2 years of school to go (hopefully)!
