My Answers to Christy's Tag

What were you doing 5 years ago?

OK, let's see...five years ago was 2003. Emma was in first grade. James was four. That means that I was living in Henniker, NH with my first wife and the kids, working at the Attorney General's Office. We had put our house on the market and were getting ready to buy my Mom's house in Sanbornton.

What are/were 5 things on your to-do list today?

Pay a couple bills (the car payment and homeowners' insurance)

Send in my signed contract for my summer singing gig with the NH Music Festival (Renee actually took care of this for me. Thanks sweetie!)

Email the powerpoint presentation for the sexual harassment training seminar that I'm teaching later this week.

Get to work on the summary judgment motion that I still have to write which is due later this month.

Go to an emergency selectmen's meeting for the town, and then race home to spend some quality time with my honey.

Pistachios (I'm not just saying that cuz it was on your list Christy. Renee and I have been going crazy with the pistachios lately)

Ice Cream

Damn, it was looking like I was going to get all five P-words, but then "Ice Cream" came along and ruined everything.
