Pretty Tough Tuesday & Tagged for Five


What a great week for College Softball. Check out my College World Series Wrap-Up blog for Pretty Tough here

Yay! I've been tagged by Angela.  I love being tagged and I hope my taggies' feel the same way. :) 

Here we go: 

1. The rules of the post are posted at the beginning. 
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves. 
3. At the end of the post, the player tags five people and posts their names, visits their blogs, and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged, and asking them to read 
the player's blog. 
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer. 

What were you doing five years ago? 

Hmmm.. I was coaching softball, working clinics and camps, and teaching seventh grade at Harrington Middle School in Mount Laurel. My hubby and I lived in Cherry Hill with our two little dogs. When, I first read this question, I thought I was in college five years ago.. Try nine. Urgh. :)

1. Hang out at the beach with Kaci. :)

You're young! College was 15 years ago for me. And that was even the master's program.
Sounds like you have a perfect day planned!

I'm starting to feel old. Bones are hurting. I need to stretch. :) Don't you hate when you think something was like a day ago and it was years ago? Urgh.

You lived at the Cape May Court House? Is there a story to go with that???

I thought of you this weekend--we were eating lunch at a sports pub and softball was on the screen behind Steve's head. That's some serious pitching!

Hi Keri,
Nice to meet you here. Thanks for the comment. Wow, another nurse. S.A Harazin is a former nurse too. She wrote Blood Brothers. Congrats on your book! It's on my list. I'm going to catch up on a lot of reading this summer.

Hi, April - Thanks.. Nursing is one of the hardest and rewarding jobs in the world.. (tips hat)

Hi, Megan - Yay!!! Can't wait to read it. ;) Thanks.

Hi, Beth - I'm really in the mood for some gummy bears right now. :)

Got the tag. Will post in the next few days. I'm in great 'tagged' company, though! I'm afraid I won't be very interesting by comparison!

And college was 15+ years ago for me, too, PJ!

Hi, Amy - Great tag! I enjoyed reading it.

Hi, Angela - Yes, I did. Now, it's hot, sticky, and cloudy. Urgh.
