5 things I was doing 10 years ago:
-Wishing HubbaHubba were home from his mission, while I dated a dead-ender.
-Playing in the classical guitar ensemble at BYU. (Don't be impressed. I was the worst one.)
-Still trying to major in music.
-Exercising A LOT more.
-Working at a blender factory in Lindon, UT.

5 things on my To-Do list today:
-Be a better homeschooler. (like my homeschool hero, Karen)
-Do the dishes.
-Clean my room.
-Listen to more of The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. (the Percy Jackson series)
-Play guitar.

5 snacks that I LOVE:
-My chocolate/butterscotch chip cookies.
-Apple slices.
-Salad without dressing--best eaten by hand. (weird?)
-Home made soft pretzels.

5 Things I would do if I were a Billionaire:
-Pay off all our debt and our family member's and beloved friends debt.
-Set up charitable foundations: a fund to help good couples adopt children, a scholarship at BYU, a fund to pay for processing of all the backed-up rape kits across America, give to the Alliance Defense fund.
-Take all my girlfriends on a shopping spree with Stacy and Clinton to help us!!
-Get a personal trainer and a babysitter.
-Send my husband back to school so he can study whatever he wants and not work 3 jobs.

I don't think a proper home school hero would ever yell at her kids, and I'm here to tell you that YOUR "HERO" DOES!

Ah, Karen, you can't dissuade me. Even though I'm not there to see your failures, your successes are obvious. You have joyful, healthy, curious children. I don't expect perfection of my heroes--it's consistent daily effort and good planning that impress the heck out of me.

Okay. Just wanted you to know that I see the tag.

I agree with SumGreater, consistent daily effort. It's not about focus, but continually refocusing, right?
