Another Hard-To-Resist Meme

Got this from Lick My Sticks, who is about to give birth any second, so I am amazed she even gives a crap about her blog right now.

1. Where were you ten years ago.

I had just graduated with my MSW less than a year before, working as a social worker doing home-based services, a fascinating but often unsavory job and peoples’ filthy houses. I also worked part time as a relief counselor at a transitional home for chronically mentally ill adults working overnight shifts. I was dating my now-husband and happy to have 2 cats (one of which I still have). I was probably celebrating my 36th birthday somewhere.

2. Five Things on Today’s To-Do List

Finished seaming Central Park Hoodie and pick up the dreaded stitches, touch up my roots, give Amelia a bath and do her toe-nails with blue nail polish, mow the dumb lawn, read some of my book (The Glass Castle).

3. Snacks You Enjoy

chocolate, tortilla chips, did I say chocolate?

4. Things I Would Do If I Were a Billionaire

Give lots of money to Barack Obama and causes I find important, pay off my mortgages (yes, I have two), buy my dd a good education and possibly a beach house, do the same work only part time and not charge people. Or maybe buy a sheep/alpaca/goat farm or yarn store/coffee and tea shop and retire!

5. Places I Have Lived

Arlington, VA, Alexandria, VA, Washington, DC, McLean, VA, Northampton, MA, Woodbridge, VA

6. Jobs I Have Had

Retail, Secretary at various places, social worker in various places, babysitter, preschool teacher, professional singer

7. Who I Would Like to Know More About

All y’all, and Dick Van Dyke

Aw, Shucks
