“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet


5 Things

Tuesday, July 05, 2005

It's going to be another beautiful day here in the Metro area and I need to continue making our home beautiful for the person/people who will be buying it - whoever that may be. So, rather than a regular post, here are some things you may or may not already know about me. I will return with your regularly scheduled programming (and hopefully a picture of our landscape plans) tomorrow.

I borrowed this from Leesa who stole it from Stephanie

10 years ago, I....

1. was moving from a teeny tiny apartment to a slightly less tiny apartment.
2. was working at a medical supply company at a job I despised.
3. got my first cat with my husband.
4. had been married for two and a half years.
5. was about 40 lbs lighter than I am now.

5 years ago, I....
1. was very excited over the birth of my goddaughter.
2. was laughing with my computer geek husband at the people who panicked about the Y2K bug.
3. quit the stinky job I hated.

5. had not yet been disillusioned by the futility of that education.

2. will soon be acting as general contractor in the building of our new house.
3. use the skills I learned in tech school occasionally to make a few extra bucks.
