Five Things

What I was doing 10 years ago today:

--I was 17, in my senior year of HS, and probably ditching some (or all) of my classes for the day
--Working as an assistant manager at Blockbuster Video
--Dating Steve...a tatooed and multiple pierced boy with purple hair and a penchant for whiskey...oy vey...
--Probably getting ready for or just got back from some concert
--Getting rides to school from a nice boy named Andy, who when my dad asked why I never dated "nice boys like that kid that picks you up", I scrunched my nose, rolled my eyes and walked away

Five things on my to-do list today:

--Send GIANT thank you notes to Jen and Tracy for taking care of my little man today!
--Straighten up the kitchen
--Put together all of my notes on what Henry's been eating all week for our appointment with Dr. Bravo tomorrow
--Maybe do some more work for his birthday party...but probably not
--BE SHOCKED that as I was typing just now, I watched my little boy WALK all the way across the living room!!!!
--Thank God for saving me from myself (which makes sense if you read what I was doing 10 years ago!)

Snacks I enjoy:

--White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Cookies
--A big glass of Orange Juice with ice in it (is that a snack?)
--Salt and Vinegar chips
--Those chocolate raspberry sticks from Trader Joe's

Things I'd do if I was a millionaire:

--Give lots and lots of it to families with children with serious medical expenses
--Adopt and start some kind of scholarship fund for adoptive families
--Honestly...get massages...regularly
--Travel some.
--I'd love to own a few acres of land out in the country somewhere

Places I've lived (in order):

--Artesia, CA
--La Mirada, CA
--San Luis Obispo, CA
--Santa Maria, CA
--That's it...I don't get out much...

henry's walking?! that's so great. so, andy was the nice boy in high school that gave you rides to school. that's so funny. i love how things work out. and, yes, i'd have to agree about the massages. they're definitely a good thing.
