The "4" email

 copyright: istockphoto.com/Likhitha
In a previous post I mentioned I was sent this email several years ago.  The email had seven questions that each had four answers.  Many of them work for me, a couple don't, including the first one: "Four Jobs I have had". I haven't had four jobs outside of education.  All my work through university was child related; day camps, nannying, babysitting, tutoring etc.  Now this doesn't make for very interesting reading at all!    So I have taken this old email from February 2007, yes call me a pack rat, and made some changes so it works for me.  The email ended with the directions to delete the sender's answers, put in your own and then send it to a whole bunch of people you know including the person who sent it to you.  The theory is that you will learn a lot of little facts about those people you know.

So for something different and off the topic of adoption, as I am still waiting to hear something, anything from my local agency about my country, here goes!
