Well Ceci wanted to know why I wasn't doing the tag thing so here goes.

1. 10 years ago: I was still living at the Tenny place in Abraham, Utah. Zane Bainter was born in February, Mom's open heart surgery was that June. I was working at the Family History Center as a staff member 1 day a week, working at the Delta Livestock Auction 1 afternoon a week, and started working for a caterer in Delta two days a week. At this same time I went to Murray and helped with Mom, changing her dressing on her leg at at the first of the week and back in Delta the last part of the week. Our beloved Smokey died also in 1998.

2. Things on my to do list today: I work on the church indexing and I want to arbitrate 100 names, do some embroidery on some quilt blocks, read, give Noah and Zane piano lessons, remember to get Stevie and Noah off the bus at 4:05.

3. Snacks I enjoy: I love to eat buttery popcorn, and a good chocolate chip cookie.

4. What would I'd do if I were suddenly a billionarie: Pay all my debts. Then I would like to get a place closer to the temple so I could do more temple work with Sid, go on church missions until I was to old to go, and go on trips to Germany and other places where my ancestors are from.

5. Three of my bad habits: hmmmmmm just kidding. I swear to much, I'm to selfish with my time, I am also not very thoughtful of others, I make snap judgements of others and have to change my option later.

6. Five places I have lived: Portland, Oregon; La Grande, Oregon; Salt Lake City, Utah; Murray, Utah; Delta, Utah and now Maryland.

7. Five jobs I have had: Babysitter, nurses aide in Delta, School bus driver, Caterer, aide for special education in Delta Elementary.

8. Five things people might not know about me: hmmmm I think I'm old enough everyone knows me. I'm basically shy person, I don't like going places where I don't know people. I have always wanted to sing in the Tabernacle Choir, big pipe dream. I really hate to drive, everyone knows I dislike being a passenger, but getting out of the house and driving makes me very nervous. I could just stay home, never grocery or clothes shopping and be happy.

Okay everyone happy!!!!!!

What have I been doing?

I have been taking it a little easy because my blood pressure has been to high. The doctor started me on a new medication that didn't do a thing but make it higher. But two weeks ago she added a new med, these days it is still one pill. I went to the pharmacy yesterday to fill the prescription and they had to order it special so I went back to the Dr's office yesterday and got two more weeks of free samples. The pharmacy called me today to say they had the prescription and it would be $123.33. Just took my blood pressure. The pill is working 122/78. I told them I would be in to get the prescription in two weeks when my SS check would be here. Now I know why I just took on two new piano students.
Now I'm going in to soak in a soda (baking soda, not pop) bath.

A woman in our ward had a baby so I decided to make her a baby blanket with my left over yarn. It looked like I had enough so I started and as usual I guessed wrong.

Here is Stevie's new doll blanket and she says her care bear blanket. I will post the care bear when I finish it. She asked her Mom if she thought Grandma would crochet her a care bear. Now everyday after school Stevie runs in here to see if I have it finished. It is almooooost done.

Last Wednesday Dad and I went down to Church, me to watch the Pinewood Derby and Dad to speak to the 11 year old scouts about being good citizens.

I watched Noah and Zane race their cars. They did really well. I will let Trudy blog the derby since she takes better pictures.

Dad took an old bull whip and had the boys get face down on the floor and lightly whipped their butts to show dictatorship.
