5 Things Meme

Posted on February 20, 2008 - Filed Under Fun |

I still haven´t gotten my Photoshop installed to downsize my photos, so yet another Wordless Wednesday is going by with a lot of words . . . perfect time to do this meme that Jessie tagged me for!

Five things 25-year-old Genesis didn?t see coming

  • A certain little person named Dante
  • A successful writing career
  • Being fluent in Spanish (I thought I´d never get there!)
  • Actually surviving 5 years of couplehood! :P
  • Dorian´s medical issues . . . I was pregnant around that time, but never thought he´d be born with an imperforated anus!

Five things I was doing 10 years ago

  • Working my way up the ranks of the local Air Cadets
  • Recovering from a wrecked hip in karate
  • Working as a nanny
  • Doing respite care for kids with Down´s Syndrome
  • Hiding out in my converted garage bedroom and writing all night long

Five things on my to do list for today

  • Wash dishes . . . ugh!
  • Finish all my blogs
  • Plan meals for the next month
  • Go into Antigua and get a month´s worth of groceries (can it be done?!?)
  • Wash bottles (Aren´t I so darn exciting?)

Five things I will do when I am a millionaire

  • Buy a plantation and build a writer´s retreat on it
  • Buy curriculum for the boys, all 12 years!
  • Build a bathroom
  • Get a car!
  • Fill my house with books.

Five things I will never wear again

  • Plaid flannel shirts (but pjs are ok)
  • Wool socks (military, blech!)
  • Earrings
  • High heels
  • Ruffled dress

Five of my favorite toys

  • Lego
  • Computer
  • Sewing machine
  • Playstation
  • Water guns

Five banes of my existence

  • Fleas (Dante has them in his bed and I CANNOT get rid of the suckers)
  • Toys that break in five seconds
  • French fries (It´s a love/hate thing, I love the taste, hate the extra pounds!)
  • Writing clients who don´t pay
  • Dry, cracked skin and lips :( Both mine and Dorian´s.

Ok, I have to tag someone new with this . . . YOU. If you´re interested, take up the challenge!

    Wow, that was fast! Some of your answers are so interesting. I really think you should write a book. Not an autobiography exactly, but maybe an autobiographical novel. You have had such a unique life experience already and you’re just 28!
    One answer that surprised me though… you never want to wear earrings again? I’m hardly ever without them (though I do rotate the same few pairs over and over!).
    Good luck on the month menu thing. I listened to a lady at a mother’s group once describe how to plan your month’s menu and shop for it. The best I’ve ever done is two weeks at a time. I bet you can do it though. :)

    Oh, and good ol’ Vaseline works wonders on cracked skin and lips!

    Ok, I liked this list so much, I have also do it… BUT, it is sitting in draft until L has a look at it…

    It will go up in a little while, I promise!

    Yay, I´ll be checking yours out, Bernie, thanks for playing!

    Jessica, the whole earring thing is because I didn´t have pierced ears until about four years ago. I finally had them done and they got SO infected. They were basically sore and causing major problems for 3 months. Then I was in the hospital and took them out and afterwards, when I tried to put them back in, my ears were already healed, just a week later. So I´m not really interested in trying that again!
