I've been *tagged*! That never happens!

1. Ten years ago I was...

Newly married, just starting at the job I still have, and had just turned 25.

2. Five things on today's to do list:
  • Cook Dinner (yummy Basil Shrimp with feta and orzo)
  • Get Widget to dance on time
  • Clean out my work inbox
  • Finish laundry
  • Beat one of my work tools that hates me into submission. Ha!

3. Things I'd do if I were a billionaire:

Let's see... I'd setup a scholarship fund for Widget's school, so they could truly be accessible to people of all degrees of wealth, and similarly endow a scholarship to mine and my husband's alma mater. I would hire a personal trainer and whip my fat lazy butt into shape for once and for all. I'd buy a (small) house on a quiet lake in New Hampshire - winterized and close enough to the mountains that we could use it for skiing too. I would travel all over the world, staying long enough in the places I went to really get to know them. I'd move to a neighborhood that made me happier - I don't need or want a palace, but I want to be able to walk places instead of having to drive.

4. Three bad habits:
  • I bite my nails to little nubs
  • I'm a terrible procrastinator
  • I'm a perfectionist to the point of doing nothing.
5. Five places I've lived (You'll sense a trend here, I'm sure. And this list is complete, btw):
  • Manchester, CT
  • Worcester, MA
  • Malden, MA
  • Dorchester, MA
  • Weymouth, MA
So, I think almost everyone else has done this already, so I can't think of anyone to tag. Just one more way I'm a bad slacky blogger, right?

HEY! Yours has an extra bit! :)
Did you finish your to do list?
I just love to read these! I can't help myself. Perhaps why I love reading the blogs anyway!
The week's almost done. Stay strong!

?Manchester, CT.. because of all the rich Silk history?

Wow--you lived in a lot of Chesters!

Sounds like a busy, busy day-- and lovely plans when you win the lotto--can I come visit you in wherever it is you love the best?
