Sheria over at On My Mind left me a nice comment last evening and added a postscript saying that I'd been tagged. I was reading that at 5 AM, and my seriously muddled thought process went something like, "Tagged? What's that? It doesn't sound good. But it's Sheria, so it must be an okay thing. Hey, I need to fill Sheeba's water dish." After I read Sheria's post, things became much clearer. Since I had another emotional day at work today (I'll post more pictures and write about it tomorrow), I thought I'd go with something a little less emo and a little more fun. And Sheria is right, it IS flattering to have someone want to know more about you. Thanks, Sheria!
The rules are:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 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 your blog.
1) What was I doing 10 yrs ago?
I was not in a good place. I was living with a boyfriend who was emotionally, verbally, and on the verge of becoming physically abusive. Hey, I thought this was supposed to be a little more fun! But wait, there's a happy ending. I started a new job (the one from which I'm now retiring), and quit the crummy relationship. After yet another crummy relationship, I got my act together, met Ken, and here we are! I can definitely say that I've found my happy place, and I am much better off than I was 10 years ago.
