Meme oh Meme oh My!

You know, a few months ago, I had no idea what a *meme was. The first time I came across it, I had to look it up. Now look at me. No longer a newbie blogger, I've been tagged! Thanks Lauri!

So, here we go:

1. What were you doing 10 years ago? Ten years ago, I was in my last semester of undergrad, student teaching in an elementary special education classroom. My host teacher was toying with retirement, and ended up taking leave. I was given the classroom (as a long term sub) for the rest of the year. I spent the semester sure that at any minute someone was going to come in and accuse me of not knowing what I was doing. And they would have been right.

I was back living at home with my Mom and stepdad, driving him crazy with my messy room. (My Mom is awesome about messy kid bedrooms. She just says, "If you don't like it, shut the door!") Still licking my wounds from a bad break-up the previous summer, I was in the biggest dating lull of my life.

2. What were you doing a year ago? A year ago, I was 6 months pregnant with Party Girl. She was doing her deep sea flips in my belly, while I was trying to prepare Sass for a sibling. We (which means M.) was busy scraping, sanding, and painting Sass's big-girl room. We bought her a big bed, and when we showed her the new room and bed, all put together, she wanted to sleep in it that night. She slept soundly, but it took me a good week of checking on her 10 times a night. She looked so little in that great big bed, and still does. At a late ultrasound, we found out that PG was a girl, and decided to keep it to ourselves. We told Sass though, and everyone thought it was so cute how, when you asked her if the baby was a boy or a girl, she always chose girl, and told them her name. When my water broke, it was 4 AM, I went to tell Sass we were going to the hospital to "get" the new baby. I was so afraid she would cry and cling and not want me to leave, as I'd never left her at night before. Instead, she said, "Mama, don't bring home a boy!" Then she rolled over and went to sleep.

3. Five snacks I enjoy: Hah! Pre or post diet? I'll do a little of both.

5. Sunrise - Norah Jones

2. Put money away for my girls
3. Buy two new houses, one here, one up north
4. Donate.
5. Stay home with my kids 'till they're grown

*a meme is an idea that is passed and shared from blog to blog

Thanks for the tag, Bethany. I'm trying to think of a way to make that fit on my blog. Maybe an image about lists. ;-)

Oh - and thanks for clarifying. I didn't know what a meme was either!
