I've been tagged too!

For the first cinnamongirl over at Happy Handwork! Thanks for inviting me to play!

The Rules:
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was packing up my apartment back home to move to university here in London. I was terrified. I'd never been far from "home" and I already lived on my own so when I left, there was no bedroom waiting for me to come back to. Boy am I glad that I did it. Life now is a dream, I wouldn't relive those years though...not for a million dollars!

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

Take pants to get hemmed for conference in Philadelphia. (done, picking them up Tuesday...phew!)

Clean the house. (kitchen sort of half done)

Get hair cut and highlighted. (done, gotta look good for the conference :-)

Put the air conditioner in the window upstairs with my husband. (done, can't pack when it's 90 degrees in here!)

Pack the house for our move...(soooo NOT DONE!)

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Pretty much anything chocolate. I love dark chocolate, I love mint chocolate, I love chocolate with peanut butter...but not with any sort of tree nuts..because I'm allergic...(peanuts good...tree nuts bad). I currently have a standing order for hickory sticks and diet doctor pepper, and I eat waaaay too much microwave popcorn. Right now though..I've been good...snacking on carrots and celery :-)

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

Hmmm, yes, tithe first, then pay off our new house. Put money in some sort of a growing investment. Give money to our brother/sister in law to build their house. Pay off my sisters house. Set up education funds for our nieces, and any future little ones. Give our church money to buy our own building/land so we would have our very own place (we rent a highschool on Sundays currently, and so we set-up and then pack-up every Sunday. Oh, and I'd have WAY more yarn :-) and my very own spinning wheel.

5. Places I have lived:

Brockville, Ontario, City of the Thousand Islands, I grew up in the country, but always close to Brockvegas as we occasionally called it. Move into the "big city" when I was about 15 and then had my own apartment there on the water when I was 17 until I moved to London when I was 19 to go to school. I also stayed in Wolfville Nova Scotia for a summer in 2004, just hanging around scuba diving. Moved to Guelph during the week when I was working on my Masters a couple of years ago...but I quit shortly after we got married and it was just to hard to live apart. Awwww prevails... Sooooo, pretty much that's it.

I will tag, Stringativity, Learning to be Thankful, So Much Yarn, So Little Time, Wool Windings, Rapture of the Deep, (if you check that one will notice that there are no's's my husband...I'm trying to get him to actually post some of his writing :-)

Oh, and sorry for the repeat tagging of two of you...errr..ummm, I tried to avoid it, but three of the other blogs I read have recently said they're not going to blog anymore :-(

This was fun, I hope you guys play along, I'd love to read your answers!
