I have been tagged by my friends Theresa at Theresa's Life and Renee at Renee's Ramblings for this meme. It looks like fun, so I'd love to play along! Thanks for thinking of me!!
1) What I was doing ten years ago:
I had just graduated high school, and was beginning my first year of college. That doesn't seem possible...
2.) Five years ago:
Celebrating my son's first birthday. Mourning the loss of a close family friend who died in a car accident - he was only 20 years old.
3) One year ago:
Celebrating my son's fifth birthday and my daughter's third. Beginning my 6th year of teaching.
4.) Yesterday:
Church, then spending time with my family. You can also read about Drew's accident below.
5.) 5 snacks I enjoy:
chips, popcorn, strawberries, snack mix, oatmeal cream pies
6.) 5 Things I would do if I suddenly had $100 million:
a. Give my parents 20 million dollars because they deserve this for putting up with me. No, not really, they deserve this for all of the things they've done for me, my sister, and my brother (not to mention my children) over the years. This would enable my dad to buy that Mercedes (he always asked how I would buy him one on a teacher's salary), and my mom to buy whatever her heart desires.
b. Put 20 million dollars up for my children. This could pay for their education and then some.
c. Donate 20 million dollars to my church and other organizations
d. Keep 20 million for myself and Craig - I think it would be neat to open my own daycare with a private kindergarten. This would enable me to do that without the worry of money.
e. The rest to Uncle Sam.
7.) 5 locations I would like to run away to:
a. my parents house b. mountains c. beach d. Bahamas (cruise) e. Spa
8.) 5 bad habits I have:

a. biting my fingernails b. procrastinating c. overly protective with my children (although I'm not so sure that's bad in the world we live in today.) I'll have to come back for the other two - I'm sure there are lots of others, but none that my tired brain can think of at this moment.
9.) 5 things I like doing:
playing with my children, reading, scrapbooking, swimming, blogging
10.) 5 TV shows I like:
Big Brother, Survivor, Everybody Loves Raymond (reruns), Two and a Half Men, Amazing Race (haven't heard anything about that this year)
11.) 5 things I hate doing:
laundry, washing dishes, mopping, do you see a pattern here...
12.) 5 Biggest joys of the moment:
Craig, Drew, Mikayla, other family and friends, and teaching!
...and I tag my sister Jennie, Mama Pajama, and Bridget

I am sorry about your friend-it is especailly tough when they are so young.
So have you had your 10 year reunion yet?
Have a great week, and great job on the meme
