From Mrs. Rhymeswithplague

A few days ago, rhymeswithplague was tagged by Jeannelle (see previous post). He tagged our daughter, who gave her responses in the comments section of that post. And then who did she decide to tag? ME. So I will respond in this post since I don’t have my own blog:

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
I was in a transitional state from being hired to being retired. My long career as an RN had just come to an end and I was trying to get used to being awake in the daytime and sleeping at night, something that hadn’t happened for eighteen years.

2. Five snacks I enjoy
Corn chips with any kind of salsa, baked pita chips with vegetable-cream cheese dip, pretzels with mustard, spanakopita, cashew nuts.

3. Five things on my to-do list today
Fix lunch, put away folded laundry, change linens, make supper, go to choir practice.

4. Things I’d want if I were a billionaire
A paid-off mortgage, bills completely wiped out, to tour the U.S.A. in a big R.V., to live my life out with my best buddy (rhymeswithplague, who else?).

5. Five jobs I’ve had
Nurse in an oral surgeon’s and plastic surgeon’s joint practice, domestic engineer, orthopaedic nurse in a hospital, neo-natal ICU nurse (of course, in a hospital), domestic engineer.

6. Five of my bad habits
Sitting up too late at night, getting up in the middle of the night to play games on the computer, putting off going to see doctors for as long as possible. If rhymeswithplague can stop at three, so can I.

7. Places I’ve lived
Philadelphia, PA; Wilson, NC; Orlando, FL; Bellevue, NE; Poughkeepsie, NY; Boca Raton, FL; Cobb and Cherokee Counties, GA.

So now it is my turn to tag someone else. I choose Pat, an Arkansas stamper.


  1. Thank you (I think) Mrs. Rhymeswithplague. I've lifted the "tagged" jpg from yesterday's post here, and will put it on my blog. Just remember, you asked for it!

  2. Yes, its very nice to meet you, Mrs. rhymeswithplageue!! You should post again sometime!!
