I got tagged.

I got tagged by Erin so let's see what I can do here 

5 Things I was Doing 10 years Ago
1.  10 years ago come December 13, I was telling my husband I wanted a divorce and owning up to an affair.  So, 10 years ago tonight?  I was probably scared shitless.
2.  I was an unschooling mom and still support unschooling when "done" right.
3.  I was living in a house over twice the size of the one I live in now with the most gorgeous green marble floors ever.  I still miss the floors there.
4.  I was feeding our big old German Rottie, Ruger. He was a lovely dog and I don't even like dogs very much.
5.  I was wearing clothing in the single digits.

5 Things On My To-Do List Today
"1. Empty cat boxes. It has actually been on my list for a week. I love it so much, that I keep moving it to the bottom. NOW it is mandatory. And for those who wonder, NO, I can't get the boys to do it. They do SUCH a horrible job, I have to not only redo them, but clean the entire bathroom. I know they planned it that way, and let me tell you...it worked."
This is actually on Erin's list and I'm cracking up since I could have written it myself and thought "oh, the litterboxes" the moment I read the question.  I'm just going with her answer here.
2.  Make the pumpkin trifle and deviled eggs for Thanksgiving.
3.  Empty all the dead annuals out of the pots and put silk flowers in until Spring.
4.  Go around the outside of the house with borax.
5.  Clean out the fridge.

5 Snacks I Love
1.  Chicken In A Biscuit crackers.
2.  Cold leftovers.
3.  Yogurt.
4.  Guacamole and most anything that will hold it.
5.  Tins of smoked oysters.

5 Things I Would Do If I Were A Millionaire:
1. Get a new roof.
2. Add a small, 5' deep (I hate deep water) enclosed pool out back.
3. Buy new cars...a Dodge Ram 4x4 quad cab for me and Dodge Nitros for my mom and Jake.
4. Buy a few investment homes in my neighborhood and rent them out at do-able rents to families who have fallen on hard times.
5. Donate to the local hospice that helped with my dad.

5 Jobs I’ve Had
1. Co-owned a trucking company.  Both hated and loved it.  Passionately.
2. Owned an employment agency.  This was fun, although not terribly lucrative.
3. Owned a painting (faux, decorative, murals) business.  Loved this.  Passionately. Poor money,  much glory.
4. Manager of a Nutri/System center.  Got in trouble for sleeping with my boss.  Long hours, free diet food, sucked at meeting sales goals personally, even though my center was always a top performer. I hire well.
5. Office manager/assistant to the CEO for a management company that took derelict properties and turned them into night clubs and supper clubs. Loved this job and quit only because they were relocating to South America and I didn't want to leave my folks that far behind.  Met Jake's dad here.  Bonus points, since I got my kid out of it.

I'm supposed to tag 5 people now...
