Tag...You're It

Ok, this is not like the tag game I used to play. In fact, I don't really know what I am suppose to do but since EVERYONE is doing it, I am "suppose" to know the rules. I don't. But if you won't tell them I sure won't. I will start with Debbie from North Carolina, "Gettin It Outta My Head". She asked me to do this quite some time ago and I just didn't get it done, but I had promised her I would. Since I am a person of my word here I go, just three weeks later! Sorry Debbie!

Four Films I'd watch Again:
Remember the Titans
Legally Blond 1 and 2
Miss Congeniality 1 and 2
Any thing Funny, Kid Movie, and Sandra Bullock

Four Places I've Lived
Sand Springs, OK
Alva, OK
Enid, OK
Sapulpa, OK

Four TV Shows I Watch
Amazing Race
Desperate Housewives
Big Bang Theory
(Jon & Kate Plus 8) Had to throw that in even though it makes five.

Four Things To Eat
Homemade Tacos
Uncle Jerry's Banana Cake
Mexican Food from nearly anyplace
Food that is Sweet, and not good for you!

Four Places I'd Rather Be
No where Really, but since I have to answer:
Whitehouse Texas with my son and daughter n law
OKC with my daughter
Back in time with one of my best friends...Cathy
Somewhere where being thin was easy and didn't require work!

Then I got tagged by my friend in Texas Cara. She was tagged by Alaksa and hers were pretty good too. So I thought I would add it here right after Debbies. Might as well, while I am on a roll.

10 years ago: 1998, had been married to Scott for two and half years, living on Mayberry Street with some of the best neighbors in the world. Still miss them. Working at the Enid Police Department in the DARE program teaching. Not making much money, buying a huge in ground swimming pool for the backyard. Kids were 19, 17, and 14. Sarah the oldest was not living with us, she was with her grandparents. TJ and Beth were already starting to drive me crazy!!!

Five things On My To Do List:
Travel to Mt. Rushmore
See Martine in Holland
Lose weight
Buy a Bigger House
Spend more time with family

Snacks I Enjoy:
Unhealthy, good tasting anything
Deer Jerky made by my son
Dried Bananas

Things I would do if I were a Billionaire:
I don't want to every be one so there will not be a problem with this:
But for the game....take care of my kids, parents, nieces, nephews, grand kids, donate to organizations I feel worthy, buy a bigger house, visit Martine in Holland, go to Mt. Rushmore, hire a hit man for a couple people I don't like, move to another country so I won't get caught, buy a horse farm, buy more dogs, OK, this is enough silly stuff.

Bad habits:
I gripe too much at my family
Very sarcastic at times, in fact can be right down hateful.
Eat too much
Spend way too much time on the computer

Places I have Lived:
This is way simple,
Sand Springs, OK (born and raised)
Alva, OK (college)
Enid, OK (married and job of 21 years)
Sapulpa, OK (retired and moved home!)

Jobs I have had:
Worked for Whitey Spears, rode and trained Race Horses (was small enough at one time!)
Worked at a Western Wear Store in Sand Springs
Worked at Essex (can't remember what they were, worked there when Elvis died!)
Worked for Dr. Gasaway DVM in college
Worked for Enid Grain Inspection Co. (summer job before getting married)
Worked for Simpsons Mercantile (loved that job, sold cowboy boots and western wear again!)
Worked for myself selling Tupperware, even became manager and drove a blue station wagon!
Worked for Enid Police Department (sold my soul to them for 21 years)
Worked for Northern Oklahoma College teaching Criminal Justice
Worked for self teaching Defensive Driving for the State of Oklahoma
Worked for Autry Vo-Tech teaching drug classes
Worked at home with children, husband and house duties.

Now I am suppose to tag others, I just don't think I can do that. So I challenge anyone that reads my blog to volunteer to be tagged, just leave me a message so I will know you are doing it. I told you I don't know all the rules, and I sure don't play by them.

Well gosh...about time. Just kidding. I hope you enjoyed play time and are feeling better now!

Remember the Titans I love too and I watch Desperate Housewives.

I wish I could go back to 10 years ago. I was married and David was 12, we were camping and watching him play football. Much happier times!

Good to see ya back!
P.S. Have you tried a NetiPot for sinuses? It really helps!

We are THAT Family said...

You are too funny and rebellious! Me too. I play by my own rules. But these things are fun just because your readers get to learn a lot about you! Great job.
