Cool meme responses. Your bit about 10 years ago, being a single parent, working two jobs really struck a chord with me! I did that for almost my entire work life! Out of 40 years of working, only about 6 years of that time did I have only one job! And about 10 years ago, I was working two jobs, averaging about 75-80 hours a week, just to support ME - no kids at home to feed, just my own fat self! No fun sometimes, ya know!

YEAH! I have finally been tagged :) I have waited SO long to be blog tagged. Several other bloggers dread it, yet I have always felt that I would be a "real" blogger once I had been "tagged". Pretty pathetic, eh? Anyway, THANK YOU! I will submit my "5 Things" list asap.

I LOVED yours :) I recognized myself in many of your responses.

Love,
Jodi
