Meme Time

Thanks to all you lovely ladies for your sympathy and advice! I am feeling better today. I still can't stay upright for too long without the pain returning, but it's not as sharp as it was I guess it is an air/gas bubble...crazy what a little bit of extra air can do!

VA Blondie tagged me a couple of days ago, but I just wasn't feeling well enough to do this till very first meme. :)

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?
It was the summer before my senior year of high school, and I was in the midst of researching colleges to get ready to apply in the fall. I was volunteering at an early childhood intervention center (my third year to do so), where I fell in love with the kids and the cause, and decided what I would be studying in college (university for the Canadians): early childhood education and special education, concentration in early childhood.

2. Five things on my to do list for today
Ummm...given my current condition, there aren't too many things on my list for today...there are instead many things I was supposed to do, but can't because I'm not feeling so well:
  1. Go to my BIL's graduation. (DH is going without me)
  2. Go to a community barbecue. (DH went without me)
  3. Train my replacement at work. (will do when I'm feeling better)
  4. Return a few phone calls. (not feeling up to it...maybe tomorrow)
  5. Cook the fish DH bought a few days ago. (done)
3. Snacks I enjoy
What don't I enjoy? Man...I wish I didn't like food so much. Honestly, there's very little I don't like, but I especially like anything chocolate and anything with cheese (but not together of course!).

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire
Move back home and buy a house in the same town as my parents. Donate to as many charities as possible, especially those who serve people in countries that have recently been hit hard with disasters. Donate to all the causes that are near and dear at home - IF, autism research, and more. Set up a trust fund for my brother, so he'll be completely taken care of for the rest of his life. Have an IVF right away (jk!).

5. Places I have lived
I was born in the Big Apple and lived there for my childhood. Then we moved down South to Bible Belt, USA (I'm not Christian, but I LOVE the South). Got married and moved up here to the Great Arctic North known as Canada.

6. People I want to know more about.
  1. Alicia
  2. Dreams Come True
  3. Loren
  4. Mrs. Spit
  5. Mya
  6. Steph

Thanks for the tag! I'll do it in a day or so! And, mmmm.. chocolate!

I definitely don't mind at all if you contact me! I'd be happy to give you any suggestions that I can think of.

Just keep in mind, I've only lived in Florida for about a year!:D

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Cheese and chocolate top my must-have list, too.

Steph said...

Thank you for the tag!! I completed mine!! I think it would be so awesome to live in New York but it's kinda far from Texas! :)

seriously? said...

Hi thanks for visiting me. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. I will have to keep that in mind if I ever have the same procedure.

Congrats on your first Meme!

DC said...

What a fun meme! I love your ideas about how you'd spend your billions. :)

Chocolate and cheese - two of my favorites also!

I'm sorry about the problems with the gas bubbles, I had never heard of that before, and it sounds truly awful. I'm glad it's improved a little bit.

Dropping by from NCLM. Sorry to hear you are in so much pain. I had the exact same thing with my last GA for the laparoscopy (ectopic). Excruciating! I could only sleep on one side, and after three days my neck was so out I got a migraine as well. I've never had such a bad reaction to anaesthetic before, and I have had a few.

Sadly, time seemed to be the best cure, and a kind friend gave me a shiatsu session daily to help keep my side mobile, and the blood moving through so healing could take place more quickly. other than that, I used painkillers. I would have preferred the anti-inflammatory kind, but due to being post-ectopic, I wasn't allowed.

Hope you are feeling better soon, and back into your to-do list!

Great day - 10 years ago you were in high school. Crap I'm old.
Chocolate and cheese - you say not together like its a bad thing (heehee)

Glad your feeling better!

Mandy said...

Just checking up on you, hope you are feeling better!!!

Ps. I love chocolate too! We have some family here from Norway and they brought me a entire bad full of norwegian chocolate--it is so good! I could eat the whole bad in one sitting!

Loved getting to know so much about you on my first visit.

Sorry to hear about the gas pains. I had them with my lap and found that a heating pad helped as well as moving around. I hope you are feeling better soon. (Hugs)
