5 things about me that you didn't know

I have been tagged by the Queen of PRH

Miss Connie @ Living Beautifully tagged me. {thank you sweetpea}
I am to answer 5 questions about myself and then tag 5 others.
So here goes:

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Oh geezzz...... I don't remember what I was doing 10 minutes ago!
Let me see.... in 1998 I was 10 years younger, 10 years healthier, we were living in an 1800s victorian farmhouse doing extensive renovations trying to bring it back to its original state, loving and sometimes hateing the house!
Our first winter we froze... you could actually see your breath in the house, there was no insulation so we had to wear 3 pairs of soxs, 3 shirts, long johns and jeans! The only way to get warm was to take a hot bath!
Oh and there was no shower just a claw foot tub!
{this was the hateing part.... we gave up a warm, totally finished 1970s brick ranch house with 3 showers, garbage disposal, central air, swimming pool,fireplace, etc.} To live in a house that was crumbling around us! Plaster falling, many of the windows missing, racoons living in the attic, creaky floors, peeling paint, water logged cellar, everyone who didn't appreciate the beauty of a historical home thought we had lost our minds!
{and I'd do it all over again if I could}
On top of all that we were helping raise our 1 year old grandson so his momma could finish her schooling and work to support them!

2. Five things on my "To Do" list:
{todays.... to do list}
Go to nursury to buy veggie plants
Plant my veggie garden
Finish the laundry
Finish and mail swap and etsy orders
Clean Miss Gooseys pond and clean around her pen!
{when I get time... to do list}
Get the rest of the porch furniture out
Paint porch furniture
Paint guest cottage
Open a boutique in the old barn at flea market
Renovate the old potting shed
Extend chicken coop and get more chickens!

3. Snacks I enjoy:
pretzels, popcorn,
pork rinds, {anything crunchy and salty}
plus grapes, strawberries and carrots

4. Things I would do if I were a millionaire:
Buy a big old victorian house to renovate!
{yep I'd do it again except this time I could afford to hire most of the work out}

Give to charities that are close to my heart!
Put my grandbabies thru collage!
Take care of my mum and mom in law!
Make sure hubby has everything he desires since he has worked so hard to provide for us all these years!

5. Five places I have lived:
Michigan & oh yeah

Okay, now I have to tag 5 people! I'm tagging
