It's 6 am.  I'm bored.  I'll do it.

5 questions, and 5 answers to each one.  At the bottom of this post, you'll see if you were tagged ;)

Question 1: Where were you 5 years ago?
  • I was in Saudi Arabia, packing up to move back home - sad becuase I would be leaving my husband for a year or so, but happy, becuase I so desperately missed my family
  • I was teaching English as a Second Language
  • I was sad becuase my "last" baby had self-weaned from breast feeding.
  • I was scared becuase we were coming back home with nothing set in stone.  No home to live in, no job to work at.  I get scared when there are no concrete plans.
  • probably killing a cockroach or two -- the apartment we lived in between our Saudi home and our Canadian home was....gross.
Question 2: Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
  • In my home, renovated and fixed up to the way I'd like it to be
  • A house full of daycare kids who's parents are cool with me driving daily to pickup/drop off my daughter at the all-girls academy I'd like to send her to
  • Have found a middle school for my son that has standards like the one that I've found for my daughter.
  • Sitting on a wicked patio set on a wicked patio in my back yard.
  • Have learned how to actually grow plants instead of kill them.
Question 3: What was/is on your To-Do list for today?
  • attempt to finish Unit 4 of the diploma course I'm in right now
  • read another chapter in my book that I shouldn't be reading but am because it's more interesting than my text book.
  • Laundry
  • Get stuff ready for a "home made" pizza night (ie, making pizza and memories with my kids)
  • Get my stuff ready for class tomorrow.
Question 4: What snacks do you enjoy?
  • Peanut butter and banana anything
  • Really salty nacho chips and spicy salsa
  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Olives
  • Apple crisp
    • I admit it, Meaghan's answers were too good - except for the wine ;o)
Question 5: What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?
  • Pay off our mortgage (and those of the immediate family)
  • help build a newer/improved mosque
  • Buy a condo in Fairmont (or Jasper, or some other gorgeous mountain location)
  • Travel around the world -- take the kids to see the countries that our respective families came from
  • Build that daycare/preschool that I've been contemplating.

Old Muslim Woman <-- does this offend you by the way?  Should I use your name??

Asalaamu Alaikum

Its okay to call me that. I can relate to your two sad situations; baby self weaning and coming back to Canada with no where to go. Not at the same time though mind you. I came back without my husband too. But alhumdullilah he came back after 4 months. This was an interesting read :)

Please comment, please. It makes me feel good, and well -- a woman just likes to feel good every now and then. I may not agree with your comment, it may even tick me off and make me want to delete it...but comment anyway and make my day.
