I’m almost a good sport

I’ve been tagged for a meme by Luisa. If you have been reading my blog for any length of time you know that I am not a big meme fan. I liken them to chain letters. Since Luisa let me know of the tag by commenting on my blog –I decided a would play a tiny bit. I am like that kid on the playground that you hated because she always wanted to play everything her way. Another reason I am not a meme fan is because I don’t think people would really be that interested in my life to such detail. Anyway, I will try not to bore you sick, and I will not tag anyone else. Video killed the radio star and rj killed the meme.  

What were you doing ten years ago?

I just graduated from High School and I was going to college as a pre-med major. I lied. Okay, I was gaining lots of weight. I was pregnant with my first-born, and I was about to be promoted or just promoted to Account Executive at the advertising agency I was working at in North Carolina.

What were you doing one year ago?

I had just made a huge move from Rivas-Vaciamadrid, Spain and was staying with my sister in South Carolina.  I think my husband had just left for a trip down further south to help re-build after Katrina.

    I’m shocked! Ice cream is not first on your list? If you become a millionaire you can come visit me and we’ll go shoe shopping 🙂
