NBPM17 - Monday Meme - Who Needs a Title?

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at

Borrowed this one from All-Knowing Jen over at the Bus of Love. 'Cuz Monday's are for memes this month.

10 years ago:
  1. The first half of the year, I was teaching second grade in my hometown, in my old elementary school, with my own second grade teacher as a coworker.
  2. I was making lots of trips up to the TC to see Mr. Kluges, with whom I'd moved to the TC in 1997... and then left behind to take previously mentioned job.
  3. Applying for tons of teaching jobs because I knew the one I had was going away due to budget cuts.
  4. In the fall, I took a job at a wonderful school teaching in a kindergarten-first grade multiage, team-teaching, open classroom environment on an alternate calendar with fabulous coworkers.
  5. Most importantly, I got engaged to the wonderful Mr. Kluges!
5 years ago:
  1. Lived in an apartment in St. Paul for 6 months upon returning from Europe in December of 2002.
  2. Covered a maternity-leave that spring for a teammate on my old team at school.
  3. Bought our first house.
  4. Taught in a 1-3 multiage team with 3 great teammates (and 1 awful, b*tchy one)
  5. Went to the first big Mr.-Kluges's-side family reunion the weekend of their small town festival and we all marched in the parade wearing matching green shirts

5 things on my To-do list today:
  1. Get new bathmat from Target - done
  2. Pay bills
  3. Mail Grandpa Pharaoh's birthday card
  4. Pumpkin's dance class
  5. Make supper so it's ready for Mr. Kluges & Penguin to eat while we're at dance class but still yummy when Pumpkin and I get home

5 things I would do if I won a million dollars:
  1. Pay off the House of 42 Doors and all its repairs
  2. Put in main floor bathroom & do a few other repairs/improvements
  3. Set some aside to do some major world traveling when girls are bigger
  4. Share with family
  5. Take a couple thousand and just GO SHOPPING!

5 places I have lived:
  1. Wisconsin
  2. Ireland
  3. New Zealand (3 months)
  4. Minnesota (rural)
  5. Minnesota (urban - Twin Cities)
(Hey, I had to stretch it to make 5, you know.)

5 jobs I've had:
  1. Stay at home parent
  2. Elementary teacher (2nd grade, K-1 multiage, 1-3 multiage)
  3. Fast food worker
  4. Residential adviser (RA)
  5. Preschool teacher/child care center director
