I found this meme on Musing’s of a Housewife’s blog and thought I would join in. I love answering random questions. I am linking up with The Miss Elaine-ous Life and Theta Mom. What were you doing 10 years ago? I was 18 and in my first year at York University, studying Chemistry. I worked as a part-time waitress in the holidays.
