I've been tagged!

My lovely friend Liana has tagged me with a MeMe and I need something to take my mind off of things so here it goes!

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

Wow - 10 years ago huh? I was working for MicroWarehouse which no longer exists. I was miserably single but doing all the fun things singles do like traveling, going out and partying.

2. What 5 things are on your to-do list for today?

Only 5? Dinner, have many drinks, play with Dylan, straighten up the house a bit, do some laundry.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?

Make sure that my Mom was taken care of (bills paid off, nice place to live, nice allowance to play with), start the adoption of our second child, redo our kitchen (or maybe just buy a new house), travel.

5. List the places you have lived.

Marlton & Cherry Hill, NJ; Philadelphia, PA and Israel

6. List the jobs you have had.

I'm only listing the ones I've had as a grown up :) I've been a clerk typist (just like you Liana!), paralegal, kereoke hostess, waitress, sales person.

So now I’m supposed to tag 3 other people. Hmmm - how about Cecily, Stiletto & Barb?

Rest in Peace My Dear Friend

Last week Marc and I went away for Marc's 40th Birthday. We went to Vegas. On the next to the last day of our trip, we got a call from our vet's office. Shadow wasn't doing well. His kidneys were failing.

The vet said to give it till today to see if he could turn him around. He couldn't. Shadow was 16 1/2 years old and diabetic. He was tired. We sent him to be with Saffie and Zayde. The house feels very empty now. He will be missed.

Goodnight sweet boy.... we love you.

Reaching out - Asking For Help

Not for me.... for my dear sweet friend Andrea. Her time on this earth is quite limited but she'll leave behind a large family and they need help. Fast.

If you are in a position to help, they need funds for child care, they could use gift cards to Trader Joe's or Target or for gas. If you are in the Philadelphia area, they are looking for people with construction skills/supplies to help rehab the home they will be moving to on August 25th (also, if you own or know the owner of a moving company who is interested in donating their time and skills...).

If you are a blogger who will help spread the word - it would also be appreciated.

Thanks! Julie
