20 years ago I...
-Was watching the Space Shuttle Challenger explode in the air.
-Was probably watching the premiere of Pee Wee's Playhouse.
-Couldn't wait to watch someone get slimed on Double Dare.
(I was 9, I watched a lot of television alright?)
10 years ago I...
-Was graduating high school. It was such a sad time. A friend of mine had killed himself in April of that year and all of the events after that were meaningless ~ prom, graduation ~ it all sucked.
-Started going to the Limelight in NYC. That's where I met hubby. It's a great story, I'll have to tell you sometime.
-Started college and failed two courses my first year.
5 years ago I...
-Was planning a wedding. I had such an awesome time at my wedding. I wish I could do it all over again.
-Was on my honeymoon in Aruba. Oh how I wish I could go back there.
-Was 20 pounds lighter. I actually wore a bikini!!!
3 years ago I...
-Was going into labor. It was late at night on June 6 and I started feeling contractions. My mom was living with us at the time so she told me to go to the hospital. By the time I got there, the pain was unbearable. When they examined me I was 1 CM!!! It got worse from there. I started shaking, puking, and hyperventilating. The nice nurses gave me some morphine to relax and hopefully progress a little more comfortably. I got to about 4cm and was finally able to get an epidural. After that it was smooth sailing. I didn't feel a thing. Really, not a thing. I couldn't hold my legs up, I couldn't feel myself pushing. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
-Was in the throes of post-partum. When the baby and I came home, I cried a lot. It was so damn difficult and I just wanted to give up.
-Loved where I was living.
1 year ago I...

-Bake cupckaes for my daughter's birthday party tomorrow.
-Clean the house so that my family doesn't think I live in a pig sty.
Tomorrow I will...
-Shower my sweet little girl with hugs and kisses in her third birthday. I can't believe my baby is 3 years old.

-Try to get the birthday girl to bed at a reasonable hour.
In the next year I will...
