Today is Oldest's last day of school. I assume they'll be making up for that math final. Either way he was ready to gooooo this morning. I think he's got a few more phone numbers to get before the summer break.
We had more storms last night, but this time it wasn't so bad because we were prepared. I had candles lit before bed in case the lights went out. Which they didn't, probably because I was prepared :P.
I slept like a rock, and only woke up when Mini gave me a kick to the stomach around 1 am. I woke to find he'd somehow flipped completely around in the bed. His feet were up by my tummy and he was sacked across the covers with his head toward the foot of the bed. He usually flounders like that when he's got a tummy ache, but he didn't mention anything about it when he went to bed last night. I better watch him today and make sure he eats his "beggies" at lunch.
Today I'm going to work on the HQN wip a bit. Try to narrow down those last few chapters. I think there are 2 left? My goal is to have the whole thing (in its rough state, of course) ready to print up by tomorrow evening.
Now for the quick and dirty. I got tagged!
Ann tagged me, and these are the rules:
Posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves 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. Play nice, children.
1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Hm. 10 years ago I reaaaaally wanted to have another baby, so hubby and I went through a grueling year of fertility treatments, only to be told by my doctor he didn't think I'd ever get pregnant without surgery. This is also the wonderful year that I found out I'm diabetic and have PCOS. Not the best time of my life, but I can say with confidence the doctor was full of sh!t. I didn't need surgery, just the Atkins diet. 7 months on Aktins and a romantic weekend = surprise stork visit, aka operation Welcome Mini Bear. Take that Mr. Fertility Specialist. :P
2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today.
Mini's breakfast, Mini's lunch, Backyardigans dance break, NAP TIME, oh, and writing and coffee in there somewhere too.
3. Snacks I enjoy.
Pecans, chips, Diet Dr. Pepper, and all the usual artery clogging junk.
4. Places I’ve lived, in no particular order.
Texas and Louisiana. Exciting, no?
5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
Hm. I'd invest, that's for darn sure. A HUGE chunk of it. That money would be making me money, that's for sure. From a home life perspective, bills and family would have to be taken care of first. I'd have to set up at least three trust funds: for my parents and for the kids. Then I'd make sure Oldest got his dream trip to Japan (I'd never hear the end of it otherwise, ROFL!). I'm sure Hubby would have plenty of input for what to do with the money *snork*, and I imagine he'd quit his day job. For me, I'd probably buy a private island, have a house built, and then I'd find a comfy spot to lounge on the back deck of my new dream house to write books while Mini plays on the beach. (That's some sand box you've got there, Mini!) ^_^
6. Peeps I want to know more about.
This is all voluntary, of course. Here goes. I'm tagging Leah, Isabelle, Crystal, Jenji, demon, and... someone else? *_* I'll stick with these, kthanx!
Happy Thursday, everyone!
