Tagged by Mrs Bigun Well, this is fun. I was just thinking that since I had reached the 100 post mark that it was time for a 100 things about me post, but this is more fun.
Jobs I’ve Held:
Corn detasseling in 7th and 8th grade. One time, my whole bus got fired because a couple guys got in a food fight on the bus and my dad drove me over to the office ad went inside. I was back at work the next day – very cool “papa bear” move. Little Caesar’s Pizza Pizza, age 16. I was the dough making queen High school and college summers- lifeguard/swim instructor at Rockport Pool Hands down the coolest job ever. High school winters – lifeguard for lap swim at Rock County Pool. Worked 5-8 Mon-Thursday. Did my homework while people who knew how to swim did laps. Quite boring actually but the hours were great for a teenager. College Year 1 – Waitressing Night shift at the Oasis Restaurant (Truck stop) – Yuck. Waitressing at Perkins – cool job, good money, always smelled like grease and syrup. Asst DON at Fair Oaks Health care center – first nursing job, totally blew. Lead RN/Care Plan Coordinator, then DON for Mercy Manor and then Mercy Manor Transition Center- good job, great hours, great people to work with. Being on call all the time and having to deal with sucky stuff, not always so fun.

My sister Tracy - who has an adventurous spirit and isn't afraid to try anything
RunAthena - who is a wonderful writer and one of the most interesting people I have met, one of the first people I met in the blog community who made me feel extremely welcome!
Pat in Arizona - who always has something funny and encouraging to say, has an interesting perspective on life
Regina - who is a dedicated cyclist and got married on a tandem bike in vegas which I think is totally cool!
Mike and I chose many of the same people so I am adding people to my list -
Obrats (good guy and big loser - in a good wasy), Erin (doing Ironman Wisconsin next month- hats off), Collin (new triathlete) , and Steve (the next biggest loser and soon to be triathlete!), Come on down! Inquiring minds want to know!
