I've Been Tagged!!

My dear blogging friend, Lisa, has tagged me for this game. I'll answer five questions five times.

Where were you five years ago?
1. In the same house I am now.
2. Married for 14 years, with a 7 year old daughter.
3. Mom had triple bypass heart surgery
4. My husband was diagnosed with a tarlov cyst. LONG story short. He ended up having it removed, and then couldn't stop leaking spinal fluid. He was in and out of hospitals for two and a half years. I hope I never have to see Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore ever again!! He deals with pain on a daily basis, but at least his spine isn't leaking anymore.
5. My Oreo was a teeny, tiny kitten. Not so much now!!!!!

Where would you like to be five years from now?
1. Where God wants me to be.
2. Spiritually healthier.
3. Physically healthier.
4. Financially healthier. Katie will be 17, so college will be coming soon!!
5. A better wife and mom.

What is on your list to do today?
1. My job (school secretary). Will help out with Cinco de Mayo, and watch the kids bust open the pinatas they made!
2. After work, run a couple errands (library, post office)
3. General housework (cooking supper, cleaning, pay some bills-YAY for online bill pay!)
4. Treadmill
5. Relax!!!

What five snacks do you enjoy?
1. yogurt
2. oranges, apples, bananas
3. chips
4. granola bars
5. cheese and crackers

What would you do if you were a billionaire?
1. Pay tithes and offerings first!!
2. Give to ministry friends we know
3. Give to friends and family
4. Pay off all debt, save for the future.
5. Thank God for it!! Be thankful that Katie wouldn't have any financial worries.

These are the five I have tagged! I'm looking forward to reading what you have to say!! If you don't want to participate, I understand, and I will still love you!! Truly!! :)

1. Renee'
3. Bevy
4. Debbie
5. Katie

If any of my other friends would like to play, please do!! I'd love to get to know all of you better!
Have a wonderful day! :)



  1. Good morning, Melanie~

    It was nice getting to learn some things about you. My answers here would have been exactly the same:

    Where would you like to be five years from now?
    1. I would like to live closer to family, but I honestly want to be where God wants me to be
    2. Spiritually healthier
    3. Physically healthier
    4. Financially healthier
    5. A better wife and mom


    Great post!


  2. I love your answers! I'm so glad your hubby is doing better. What a traumatic time in your life. It's nice to look back to where Jesus brought us from to where we are today isn't it? (just like the song, ha!)

    Thanks for participating -- you're a really cool lady and I love ya!

  3. You hadn't blogged for awhile - I missed you.

    So glad to get all the information about you. Sorry about your husbands back.

    Now about you and Laura being better moms - if you are worried about it - you're probably GREAT moms already.

    I too want to be spiritually healthier, physically healthier, financially healthier, and a way better Christian.

    I will try to do this list - give me some time - but if I don't forgive me!

    Thank you - sandie

  4. this was a cute tag to read. sorry about your husband, sounds like a dreadful thing to have to go through; glad he's doing better

    it would be interesting to come back here in 5 years and see if you did become financially, spiritually, physically healthier, etc. But I already think you are a GREAT mom :)


  5. Liked your post and your answers. God Bless Trish

  6. It was nice to read about you and your life. When you look at it in 5 year slots of time, it makes you realize how quickly life goes by, doesn't it. Thanks so much for the well wishes for our boys on their graduation.


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from you. :-)
