I need to answer 6 questions.I then tag 6 people and post their names here, then go to their blog and comment to tell them that they have been tagged and to visit here to find out the rules. I must then let the person who tagged me know when I have posted my answers.
What was I doing 10 years ago? 10 years ago I was finishing up nursing school (Queen's College), just married to my husband who was about to be stationed in Italy. We were both going up to FT Lewis for ROTC Advanced camp. He to be a TAC and me to be a cadet. He was supposed to be MY TAC, but let the commander know he had a conflict of interest as his brand new wife was going to be in his platoon. So he got to spend a bit of our summer doing operation orders while I pretended to be in the infantry. All through it I kept getting to hear, you are going to be a nurse so you really don't need this, but.... Yep...married 2 weeks and not able to touch or even speak to one another. It was pretty sad, but he would wait behind the barrack and leave me pogie bait on my bunk when we were out doing whatever it is we did at ROTC camp. We both were the big volunteers hoping to get to see one another. Oh well, it just gave me a taste of how hard it was going to be for us to be dual military. But my life was stretched before me and I was fearless and strong, oh and I think I knew everything back then as well. Ha ha ha. I was sooo naive.

Things I would do if I was a billionaire
- I would love to secure my children's future....well make it as secure as possible without spoiling them rotten. I want them to be productive members of society.
-I would like to expand my business by employing fellow Camp Followers or disabled service members....I want to them to thrive and grow. Similar to what Natalie Chanin did in her home town of Alabama. I can use my business and my nursing background to assist service members reestablish themselves in mainstream society, while keeping close to the Military family. Handmade quality products, no shortcuts, no Chinese Sweatshops....self reliance. OK that is enough of my soapbox for now.
Places I have lived
all over. Germany 3 times, New Mexico, Arizona, Honduras, Italy, Texas, currently the middle of Australia.

Oh and happy Memorial day! Remember what sacrifices have been made to make us the nation we are today. The freedoms we enjoy were NOT FREE! Some of the best Americans to draw breath died to protect and defend our way of life. May their spirits be enjoying peace in Heaven.
