Back Injury Posting~Updated

Claudia tagged me for this meme. Ok, you are right she tagged anyone who would do it and I just jumped on the bandwagon. Actually Linda at NickersAndInk really did tag me for this! Sorry Linda.

Here are the rules:
1. Each player answers questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, tag 5 people by posting their names.
3.Go to their site/blog and leave a comment telling them they’ve been tagged. Invite them to your site/blog so they can read the tagged post.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve completed your tagged post.
1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
Hmm, 1988. An interesting year. Or maybe not. Let me think about this….*math*. Well I was mothering the Nannygoat who was 4 and MacD who was 2. It was near the end of the very short-lived time that I was (happily) a stay at home mom. We were in the midst of building our own home. See I told you I don’t do math anymore. I meant 1998 (ten years ago, not 20~hey MacD didn’t you see the year I wrote?). So 1998….I just moved from a ten year stint in Utah back to California. Mr. Vixen had a great job and the world was semi-rosy. I had a 13 year old daughter who thought she ruled the world, a 11 year old son who was trying to hide from the world and a little 7 year old pixie child who tried to hold the world in her hand. It was some of the best times ever. The hundred acre woods, horseshoes, the pool, the orchard….life at it’s fullest.
2. What are 5 things on your “To Do” list?
  • Hem curtains for the laundry area.
  • Complete more crochet projects than I could ever name.
  • Take all the aluminum to the recycling center for $$$$.
  • Find a photo for Wordless Wednesday.
  • Finish my quilt.

3. What are 5 snacks you enjoy? (In no specific order)

  • Popcorn, white only cooked in oil with real butter
  • BBQ chips
  • Homemade queso dip with tortilla chips
  • Cashews
  • Peanuts, salted in the shell

4. Name some things you would do if you were a millionaire.

  • Buy a home.
  • Buy each of the kids a home. (no mansions just places we can call our own and live without fear)
  • Retire.
  • All the things on my to-do list up there and the make-believe to-do list in my head.

5. Name some places where you’ve lived.

Santa Clara, California
Redwood City, California
Fruit Heights, Utah
Layton, Utah
Kaysville, Utah
Escondido, California (and back here again now)

And as Claudia said: That’s all of them, folks.

I Forgot The Rule


A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet


  1. MacD

    Wow, I’m only 12 years old huh? Well then I’m definitely suing wells fargo for using me as child labor! You may need to brush up on your math just a little bit more mum.

  2. Updated….because MacD is right. In a way. Since I plainly wrote 1988…..although that was 20 years ago.

  3. MacD

    Pssshhhh, I know it’s just because your mind won’t except that 10 years ago your kids were already teenagers.

  4. Stopping by to say hello 🙂
