Thanks for the Easy Out

I got tagged sometime during the week by Mom Unscripted (I love that title)! Thank you so much because I have a severe case of brain farts this week and needed at least 1 topic I didn't have to come up with.

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 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.

What I was doing 10 years ago: Ten years ago my husband and I had just started our own trucking company and purchased our own truck and trailer. We hauled produce from the west coast to Houston, TX, delivering every Sunday morning. We then hauled something (usually frozen chicken) back to California. Our very favorite backhaul to CA was fortune cookies. There is a marvelous little fortune cookie company on Dowling Street in Houston that makes the absolute best fortune cookies ever! Added bonus? frozen chicken weighs 45,000 pounds. Fortune cookies? right around 12,000 pounds. Can you say better mileage, less wear and tear on your tires, better speeds and oh yeah, the smell inside your trailer 1800 miles later - cookies are much, much better.

Five things on my To Do List today (Actually Thursday when I was off): (not in any particular order)

1. Hope that the plumber shows up since I have NO water, no clean clothes for work tomorrow and very few clean dishes.
2. Take Shorty to work and lil man to school.
3. Help Julie take 13 puppies to the vet to get their dew claws removed.

4. Hopefully, shower and wash hair and then sink into bubble bath with Antony and Cleopatra.
5. Spend evening home alone with hubby and Survivor.

Snacks I enjoy: Lemon bars, ginger snaps and any kind of cheesecake.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire: Buy a home in the hill country of Texas. Endow a library. Retire well.

Three of my bad habits:
I am an impulse shopper.
I get too many projects going at one time.
I am a sarcastic witch.

Five places I have lived:
Northern CA

Mojave Desert
New Mexico
Texas (home, sweet home)

Five jobs I’ve had:
Community Service Officer

Law Enforcement Dispatcher
Matron (doesn't that just sound kinky?)
Truck Driver
Scrap Yard Manager

TAG - you’re it!
I’m thinking Julie, Holly, Meg, Alison, and Kim…just might join in. If you read this, consider yourself TAGGED - and leave me a comment so I can read yours!

Thanks for liking my MomUnscripted title. I was surprised when it was available. I had tried every other combination of words I could think of. This was perfect for me!

There's nothing like the smell of chicken blood. EWW. My husband has always had the idea we would take off in a tractor trailer and live on the road. I say ummmmm no. But I could do a lot of reading!!
