Tag, I'm It!

I cannot believe I have been tagged for a meme. Katie from A View From the Hill tagged me, How cool!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. 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 go to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
I was graduating from graduate school in Mississippi, and moving back to Virginia. The graduate degree was an MCS in Microbiology from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Sounds all prestigious, but it is not, really. The degree was mainly collecting credits with a little bit of research thrown in. My micro degree is one of the things I am proud of, though. I did it, and I have the diploma on my wall. And it usually impresses employers when I interview.

2. Five things on my to do list for today.
Fold clothes (done), train dogs x2 (1x done), eye appointment at 2 pm (done), meet with HVAC guy at house around lunch (done), go to store (done, though I did not get everything I should have, oh well)

3. Snacks I enjoy
Red wine and chocolate chip cookies, strawberries, most things chocolate.

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire.
Pay off my student loans, our credit cards, our mortgage. Buy a house on 20 acres just outside of Radford or Christiansburg. VA. Obtain a whole herd of Great Danes, because they are the best dogs ever! I love what I do, so I might not stop working completely, but I might go part time, or I might teach.

5. Places I have lived
I grew up in Alexandria, VA. Went to college in Roanoke, VA, went to graduate school in Jackson, MS, Lived in Roanoke after moving back from Jackson, and then lived in Radford, VA for five years. Hubby got a job on the Northern Neck, so I followed him to Tappahannock, VA. We recently moved back to Roanoke. I was miserable in Tappahannock, and finally just had to leave. Thank goodness we are back in Roanoke. I feel like I came home.

6. People I want to know more about.
I think I am going to follow Katie's lead and pick the people whose blog I have commented on

1. "Just" a Stay at Home Wife
2, Infertility on the Brain!
3. Life in the White House
4. Postcards From the Edge
5. Speculum Stories

The scary thing is that I had so many blogs on my reader to choose from. These are only a few. NaComLeavMo has expanded my subscription set.

Great Danes are AWESOME! I love their personalities, all laid back (at least the ones I've known). My current favorite is the German Shorthaired Pointer. I have an 11 month old GSP.

NCLM has expanded my reader too!

I'll work on the meme later this week. :)

Thanks for "tagging" me. I will fulfill my duties later in the day. Promise, just got too much on my plate right now. But I do appreciate being tagged - its my first time and it seems fun.

Thanks for tagging me! This looks like a fun way to get to know people...I'll post later tonight or maybe tomorrow hopefully.

So you're a VA girl through and through. :) One of my closest friends from childhood lives in Richmond...and I'm actually trying to convince my DH to move to that area! We'll see what happens with that one...
