Flea apparently decided 6 weeks was long enough for the blog to be dark, and tagged me in a meme. I am kinda glad, cuz I was gonna do it anyway. I’m not tagging anybody, simply because I don’t think I have 5 readers left to tag. If you want to do it, feel free.
Five Things, Five of Me, whatEVERRRR.
1. Where were you five years ago?
Five years ago this very day I had just finished up the worst year of my entire teaching career, and that’s saying a LOT. I was relieved that my schedule had been fixed for the fall, and things were looking up. Two months later it all went to Hades (with a new low in the Awful Year category), but that’s another story.
2. Where would you like to be in five years?
J/K, sorta. I would like to have gotten off the sofa and fixed my broken self, and escaped from the prison that has been my life in GA. I would like to be a published choral arranger, making a living from it. That nomination for a Dove Award would be nice, too. Heh.
3. What is on your to do list?
a. Cut down several of trees that have sprung up in my fence.
b. Laundry, always laundry.
c. Paint (which will only get done under threat of forced labor in direct sunlight)
d. Submit choral arrangements to publishers
e. Convince my pool to embrace the concept of clean and clear so that it’s less like swimming in a pond and more like… umm… a chlorinated pond.
4. What are five snacks that you enjoy?
b. chocolate anything
e. my cousin Glenda’s cheese ball (which I can only get at thanksgiving and Christmas)
5. What are five things you would do if you were a billionaire?
I am leaving out the tithe, because that would be an off-the-top given.
a. Pay off my church’s building loan and fulfill its’ wish list
b. Pay off my friends’ debt, as well as take care of some family members that need help
c. Set up trust funds to build and run several area no-kill animal shelters
d. Support several local non-profits that are underfunded
e. For myself… the dream house with a recording studio/computer lab, and a half-acre screened-in cat sanctuary, so my babies never have to fear a car, dog, or bobcat again
There ya go. You wanna play? Go for it! Just link back so I can read along!
