**10 Years Ago
I was living in Johns Landing near downtown Portland, in a little apartment overlooking the river. I worked at Fred Meyer's corporate headquarters in the payroll department and was 6 months away from meeting Brian.

**5 Things On My To Do List
Paperwork (always)
Grocery Shopping (always)
Prune rose bushes
Rake lawn
Clean out fridge

**3 Bad Habits
Fast Food
Staying up too late
Feeding my kids cereal for dinner

**Places I have lived
Medford, OR
Provo, UT
Portland, OR
Salem, OR

**Things most people don't know about me
I can tap dance
I have an insane fear of birds
I have never been drunk

I don't have anyone else to tag, except maybe Katie. Maybe this will inspire Jamie (I know you're reading this!) to finally get her blog going! :)

So much for.....

New Years Resolutions! I have flaked twice on my scrapbook group (for legitamite reasons, but nonetheless flaked), and once on my weight loss group, and I obviously haven't blogged in a while! But in my own defense, January has been a little crazy.

We have finally been introduced to the "joys" of having a teenager in the house. Without getting into too many details, it all culminated two weeks ago when his dad was ready to send him packing back to his mother. But, I think we have worked through it, and I have added another resolution to my list - less effort towards ungrateful teenagers! It should go a long way towards saving my sanity.

Brian and I also started teaching a class at church the first of the year. We have 3 kids between the ages of 6 and 8. It actually has been a lot of fun so far, and after just 4 weeks, a little boy who started out the year sitting in the back of the room now starts the day out at the front of the table, participates fully and wants to sit right next to us during "Sharing Time". So, small victories.

So, here is to February being the month I really get on track...
