5 Things

Five Things About Me Meme
Morning Rose tagged me to do a Five Things About Me 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 five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. I was finishing up my first year of teaching 4th through 6th grade at a private Christian school.

3. I was pregnant with Elijah.
4. We travelled to Washington state to attend Dan's brother's wedding.

Thanks for playing along! I'm finding it interesting to see how much has changed in five years.

Name: Karen said...

Okay. I'll be posting in a few.....Fun! I love these things!

Name: Karen said...

I've replied! It was fun. I tried and tried to think of things to write that were different than some of yours (because I had the same answer) but just left some of them...b/c it's hopeless, we were twins separate at birth. I just know it.

Donette,
I actually did similar version of this meme on my blog a few months ago. If you are dying to know what my bad habits are, it is the April 3 post!

when were you a manager of a health and fitness club? and why don't you have me listed on your friends blogs? :)

Donette said...

Hey Pink Angel! I don't think I knew you had a blog! I knew you were on MySpace, but I will definately add you to my blogroll!

As for the health and fitness club, that was back in 2002-2003 in L.M., first part-time, then stepped into the manager's position. Then the call came in to teach at S.P., so I abandoned my health revolution and started snacking on teacher's lounge food! :)

PinkAngel said...

well, good for you! lounge food is the best! :) And i was just teasing you about the friend thing...but thanks for adding me! :)

Sarah said...

OK Donette, I did it. My life was as boring back then as it is now. :-) Thanks for picking me though--I feel like I am in jr.high again when I do these things for some reason---maybe it reminds me of "MASH". Do you remember that? :-)

OK, I finally got around to doing it! :)
