A Few Questions… and Some Old Pictures

Our house being built.

What was I doing ten years ago?
Back in 2002 I had a 16 year old, 6 year old and 3yr old.  I was pregnant with #4,  selling primarily antiques and collectibles on eBay, homeschooling and doing stuff to our house.  We had just built the house we live in now.  My dad was not having a good year, and I flew back and forth to see him in Georgia every other weekend. 

5 Things I did Yesterday:

1. We went to my in laws house yesterday to celebrate their 50th Wedding anniversary. 

2. Look through old photos of The Man and his family. 

3. Ate some delicious BBQ

4. Loved watching my mother in law play with #6

5. Needlepoint for an hour in the car ride over there

#2 and #3 Ten years ago…

5 snacks I enjoy:

1. Mounds or Almond Joy

2. Hostess Snowballs

3. Russell Stovers Chocolate Covered Coconut Eggs

4. Reeces Peanut Butter Eggs

5. Popcorn with Hot Tamales


Things I would do if I were a billionaire: 

Build a homeless shelter in my community, Pay off my house, add a 3 car garage and a mud room.  College for my 7 children, set up some kind of college scholarship thing at our church.  Pay off my church's building debt.  Give money to each youth group in our community.  Take the youth on a mission trip that we would not normally go on… you know some place unusual.
