Five Things Meme

Alfia tagged me with this meme, which normally I would decline, but what the heck, here goes…

The rules:
1. Post the rules of the game at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What were you doing five years ago?

I think that was the year we discovered South America. If so, we took a few trips to South America that year and probably a few more to other places. But since I am always traveling, and am not very diligent about dating my photos I can only be sure that I took several tri[ps that year.

What are five things on your to-do list for today?

Bridal Shower (outdoors and its is in the 90’s)

Groceries (never shop on weekends, but need food for beach. I talked my 2 daughters into letting my 3 youngest granddaughters skip school tomorrow, as it will be in the high 90’s, and we need to go to the beach….can you tell why my grandkids think I am the coolest Gram in the world!! LOL :)))

Laundry (won’t get done…too hot)

Gardening ( had planned to weed the garden…but thank God I had to go to the bridal shower…poor hubby stayed home and weeded all day… God love him!! LOL)

Reading (in the shade)

What are five snacks you enjoy?

Apples
Popcorn
Raw veggies
Almonds
Dark chocolate

What are five things you would do if you were a billionaire?

Build a sidewalk in my town from elementary school to new library(in the wisdom of our town fathers they build a new library and no sidwalk along the road to it. So the kids cannot go to the library from school anymore…how dumb is that!)

Build a park (next to my new sidewalk) with fitness and exercise stations throughout it. (I’ve enjoyed some really cool ones in Ft. Lauderdale and Honolulu)

Build housing for the needy in my favorite barrio(which is very poor) in Mexico

Start a scholarship fund for local high school kids.

Share my good fortune with family and friends.


What are five of your bad habits?

Laziness
Blogging
Impatience
Unorganized
Procrastination

What are five places where you have lived?

California
Connecticut
New Hampshire
Massachusetts
Mexico

What are five jobs you’ve had?

Teachers Aid
Real Estate Broker
Spanish Teacher
Laundry worker
Factory worker

Rather than tag five people, I will let anyone who reads this decide if they want to play along.

If you decide to do the meme, please let me know! :)

Oh, Gypsy Girl, thank you! I know how you feel, I am so not a meme person myself! It just caught me in a moment of weakness and total inability to think.
But I really enjoyed your answers! Your to do list was very impressive, as well as your management of wealth. I have every single one of your habits! :D
Thank you again,
MWAH!
