A dozen questions

1. What I was doing 10 years ago: I was attending UVSC, dating an actor, starring in a local theater-in-a-round production, practicing for an upcoming theater production, writing to Danny on his LDS mission and my missionary, teaching piano lessons to only three students, working at a movie theater and being an extra in movies and TV shows (all to pay off two credit cards), directing the ward choir, and being choir and primary pianist, and speaking in schools and for youth groups as first attendant for Miss Pleasant Grove about "Respect for Self, Respect for Others."

2. Five years ago: introducing my first child to solids, purchasing my first brand-new mattress and box springs, cloth diapering, we were living with my parents while Danny finished his bachelor's degree, just getting into OAMC

3. One year ago: Cleaning up dog poop. I had G and Bun in diapers and was just weeks away from finding out I was expecting Ham. I was preparing for snow, and revealed to the bloggy world that I was am a laundry fanatic.

4. Yesterday: I was fighting a migraine while preparing for Danny's birthday. We made lemon cake box cookies at Danny's suggestion and told the kids they were mini-round cakes. I frosted them with cream cheese frosting and let the kids go wild with the sprinkles-- which incidentally were Easter and Christmas sprinkles. These were big steps for me:

1. Putting a sugary frosting on a very sugary cookie.
2. letting the kids decorate cookies however they wanted with sprinkles decorating the kitchen floor
3. letting them use Easter and Christmas sprinkles
4. letting them eat the sprinkles off the floor

Perhaps the migraine helped.

5. 5 snacks I enjoy: Gardetto's original snack mix, peanut butter cups, garlic bread, chocolate with toffee, veggies n' dip.

6. 5 things I would do if I suddenly had $100 million: hire someone to potty-train my kids, donate more to Parker, get electrolysis, get a decent van, invest with Troy.

7. 5 locations I would like to run away to: Hawaii in the winter, Prince Edward Island, England, Italy, the bathroom by myself

8. 5 bad habits I have: overanalyzing, overeating, biting my nails, not being able to say "no", not exercising regularly (except my stomach crunches)

9. 5 things I like doing: reading, playing the piano, blogging, sewing, being with my family

10. 5 TV shows I like: Gilmore Girls, Jeopardy, House, Numbers, Sesame Street

11. 5 things I hate doing: confronting someone, potty-training, pulling weeds, pulling out the winter gear and finding a place for it all, putting leaves in bags

12. 5 biggest joys of the moment: Danny, Pookie, G, Bun, and Ham.

Thanks HotMama for the fun meme! It's interesting to see how much my life has changed. And how much more I enjoy it now!

I am so with you on the potty training thing. I have a 2 year old right now and I don't know how i am going to find the time to train her with a new baby. I'm thinking that if I just keep putting it off she will just teach herself but I don't want to change diapers of a five year

Gilmore Girls is great. I just watched the whole first season this week while i am resting. I seriously did nothing but watch Gilmore girls and sleep for the past four days. I have season 2 on order from the library and I can't wait.

Wow, you are such a healthy snacker, and it's so fun that you were/are such a thespian! Can I go with you to Prince Edward Island? My BIL took his wife there for their honeymoon - wouldn't that be awesome!?
