Tag you are it!

My good friend Amanda has 'tagged me.' That means I get to answer these questions, the same questions she was tagged with and also had to answer on her blog. This is just a warning, my answers are going to be pretty boring, so if you want some excitement, click on Amanda Lee's blog or click on Tori's blog. She also got tagged. Come to think of it, so did my friend Brittany. Go see what she had to say. Here it goes!

4 JOBS I HAVE HAD:
1. Toilet cleaner, aka housekeeper at a motel near Capitol Reef National Park. I so hated that job. I really waited tables there and loved that, but every now and then they would need some help cleaning rooms. YUCK!! Cleaning up some stranger's toilet was not a good career move for me, no matter what they payed me!
2. I worked at Rue's Market, a little grocery store, from the time I was about 12 to 18, that is when I made the BIG move to the Capitol Reef Inn. I loved that job (Rue's.) I started out stocking shelves, bagging ice, whatever had to be done. Then, I grew to pretty much run the place by myself on most afternoons after school, even though I wasn't old enough to sell beer. I just told them that my boss went to the bank. It was small town and no big deal.
3. Wildland Firefighter. I did this for 5 summers. I worked for the Forest Service marking timber and went on fires whenever there was one to go on. I loved it. I can't explain what was so great about walking, sometimes running, around with a 40 pound pack on, a shovel or polaski, hard hat, 8 " heavy leather boots, long sleeves, and gloves in 100 degree summer weather chasing hot spots, but there surely was something. I think the camaraderie and just being a part of something bigger than yourself.
4. Plant Geek for a few years. That is how I got Matt through Vet School. I worked at plant nurseries in Washington, Oregon, and Colorado. Loved that too. I met tons of great people and learned so much!

MOVIES I COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER:
1- Cinderella Man
2- Everafter, of course!!
3- Master and Commander with Russell Crowe
4- This is so hard! Cars, no kidding.

3-talking about with TV shows these days. We do actually have a TV now, Matt
4- broke down and bought one, but we get NO channels. NONE!
Whatever happened to Family Ties or Eight is Enough???

FAVORITE HOBBIES:
1- Gardening, although I am so ready for fall to take it all away. I am getting tired of it all.
2- Sewing, quilting, etc.
3-I really like photography, I wish I knew more and did more.

PLACES I HAVE LIVED:

WHO I'M TAGGING:

1- Krista

Okay, now that you are tagged, you get to copy and paste this onto a post of your own. Delete my pitiful answers and type in your own. It is true blogging etiquette to really do this!!

Your jobs were fun and different! Now the fire fighter one sounds awsome....scary but awesome! I loved your answer for the TV shows.

My TV show answer is lame, I have no idea what is even on. The most I watch real TV is when we get to my parents house, which is usually around 10:30 and Letterman is on while my parents wait up for us. I watch a few minutes before I tell my dad how stupid it is, then he turns it off. That is seriously it.
