Jumpin' on the train

But everyone else is doing it!

10 years ago: I was in my last year of undergrad, taking 22hrs, and working part-time at Zales Jewelers, and stuffing weights down my shorts so I could get diet pills from the doctor.

5 years ago: I had been married for 4 years, and had been trying, unsuccessfully, to get pregnant for about 2 years. I was also living in Atlanta, while Scott lived in Houston, and drinking myself into a stupor most every night and ate a lot of chocolate.

1 year ago: I sat back, and looked at how our family had grown from just the two of us, to the four of us. We also developed a fantastic friendship with another couple whom we love to hang out with now. I ate chocolate.

Yesterday: Woke up in Jenna's twin-sized bed, with Jenna curled up beside me, with my little one pulling my hair, screaming, "Mo'nin' Mommy!" Got them ready for the sitter's, checked the lump on Scott's head, and sent them off. Went to work, picked up the girls, then dinner/ate chocolate/bath/bed. Then Scott and I watched "Hitch," while Jenna, who was supposed to be in bed, sat in the big chair and fell asleep.

Today: At the office, because the ridiculous IT guy still hasn't fixed my remote access! Spending time with my girls tonight, as it's Scott's "poker night" with the guys. Eat chocolate.

Tomorrow: Grocery shopping (buy chocolate), helping my dad, then probably cleaning house/laundry. I *think* we're visiting with friends tomorrow night. Not sure.

5 snacks I enjoy: mini-carrots, trail mix, popcorn, granola bars, and chocolate.

5 bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: Chicago, BeeGees, Aerosmith, Madonna, Garth Brooks

5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Pay for my mom's retirement, College accounts for my kids, a bunch of land for Scott (with a hunting cabin on it), a new house with an awesome playset in the backyard, invest in chocolate.

5 locations I'd like to run away to: Mexico, Germany, Austria, Italy, my childhood.

5 bad habits I have: Worry constantly, eat too much chocolate, brush my teeth too hard, grind my teeth, leave my shoes all over the place

5 things I like doing: Loving my chicks, cleaning, taking pictures, reading, eating chocolate.

5 things I would never wear: biker shorts, a thong bikini (too much chocolate, maternity overalls, an "I'm with stupid" shirt, red high-heels

5 TV shows I like: Dr. Phil, Good Eats, Unwrapped, Iron Chef, and...hmmmm...I don't watch a lot of tv.

5 movies I like: The Princess Bride, Mona Lisa Smile, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Like Water for Chocolate, Dead Poet's Society

5 famous people I'd like to meet: Laura Bush, Jennifer Aniston, Eaven Boland, Seamus Heaney, J.K. Rowling

5 biggest joys at the moment: The chicks, Scott (and the fact that he's not hurt by the BIG BALL THAT HIT HIS HEAD), my family, my friends, chocolate

5 favorite toys: Umm...no comment.

Chocolate is in every part of your post. I actually have a bar or two everyday and if I miss I feel bad.
