Tag, You're it.

For some time I've seen "tag" games going around my friend's blogs. They all have slightly different rules and questions, but are pretty the same. I've figured at some point, I'd get tagged.
Well, I was right. Rebecca at Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness tagged me yesterday so here goes.
The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. 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. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What were you doing ten years ago?
Wow, the end of my freshman year of high school--it's been a long time! I was probably pondering what it would be like to be grown up, and how college was right around the corner (even college seems a long time ago now). Thinking about college sent me into wondering where I should go, etc. I also was asked out for the first time that year.

What are five non-work related items on my to-do list today?
Watching game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals with my hubby. Go Wings!
Playing with Joshua and Lydia.
Reading the book our small-group is discussing.
Cooking something fun for dinner.
Trying to find order to my house (that's pretty much on the list every day with two kids).

Five snacks I enjoy:
Definitely ice cream and/or frozen custard
Rolos
Pizza
Doritos
Cookie Dough (baked or not, I don't discriminate)

Five things I'd do if I were a billionaire:
Give alot of it away (put it into a foundation or trust probably) since I couldn't possibly wisely spend most of that amount of money.
"Retire" (i.e. James and I could stop working for a paycheck, maybe take a few years off to focus on kids and volunteer, then probably start a business doing something we love or have a job we've always wanted to try)
Travel and/or live internationally (there's a lot of world out there, I'd love to see and interact with more of it--although this might have to be delayed until the kids are a bit older.)
Help my parents retire comfortably.
Pay off debts (although in the scheme of a billion dollars these seem relatively minor!)

Places I've lived:
Nothing too interesting here. Durand, MI; North Branch, MI; Hastings, MI; Spring Arbor, MI; Ann Arbor, MI; Verona, WI

Jobs I've had (in order of appearance):
Baby-sitter
Farmer's Market stand worker
Instructor of Private Lessons (Piano)
Tutor
Camp Counselor
Administrative assistant
Resident Assistant
Nanny
Wife & Mom

Tagged Friends:
