Things You Don't Know About Me

Today's meme comes from frannie over at the t family syndicate. She tagged me for this meme ages ago and I hesitated with that one. It is a loong one with 70 questions to answer, and I'm pretty lazy, so I think it would take a long time. Plus, some questions are boring, some are too controversial and, you know, there's the laziness.

So, instead I will share with you things you don't know about me.

As a kid, I played soccer for many, many years, however, now I have no athletic ability whatsoever. It is even debatable as to whether I had any then.

My husband thought I was a snob the first time I met him. I do not recall this meeting at all (because I was so stuck up!), although I have heard him describe the encounter many times.

I LOVE calendars and planning and writing plans and scheduling things in advance. This may have been the part about being a teacher I liked the best. I really like planning units and lessons and penciling them into my plan book. (Now the following through with the plans? That is a different story).

I was a teacher in another life.

I don't know what I will be when I grow up. I want to do something fun and challenging and ideally something that involves writing and/or taking pictures of my kids. Cause those are the things I like to do most. If only I could get paid to blog, that would be a dream come true. Even easier would be if I got paid to read blogs. Anyone know where I can sign up for that?

Sarah is now sleeping through the night. That's not really something about me, but I wanted to brag a little by working it into the conversation.

I played World of Warcraft for a long time, but I don't have the time anymore to play. It was the perfect thing to occupy two parents of one child who needed something to do in the evenings after said child went to bed. But now, we just don't have the time. I miss it sometimes, we had a lot of real-life and in-game friends who played, but now it seems like a lot of people have moved on. (I am really looking forward to this, although it won't be out until at least next year.)

So, there you have it. You know me a little better now, and I have knocked out another meme! For my loyal readers (MK), there will be at least two more to of which will be on Friday!

I so feel you on the teacher planning thing. I actually miss my plan book and have resorted to driving Aaron crazy by writing him lists of things to do.

Thank you! I look foward to more!

I have a question for you - i fyou love to plan - do you plan your day out with the kids everyday? Follow an exact routine?

My husband and I used to enjoy playing video games together, too...but like you, there's just not time anymore.

And let me know if you find of the secret to getting paid to blog. :o)

so going back to teaching is out of the question? I would think that would be a good schedule for being a parent. Well, when both of yours are school age at least.

nice to learn so much about you!

I, too, love calendars and lists and planning. ahhhh, organization is a thing of beauty!
