Past, Present and a few other things

Ok, so what were you doing in the past? What are you doing in the present?

Ten years ago: I was 33 and very unhappily married with a 9 year old son and a beautiful 3 year old daughter. I was having some major health problems. I was diagnosed with cancer, but by the grace of God it was all contained in one area and didn’t have to have any treatments.

Five years ago: I was still unhappily married! That was when I found out that the jerk was having an affair and I thought my life was ending.

Three years ago: I fell in love with the most wonderful man that I will spend the rest of my life with. I knew then that my life had just begun!

Yesterday: Work. Went home, cooked supper, babied my sickly daughter, crawled into bed with my sugar pie and fell asleep.

Today: Work, but tomorrow TGIF!!!!! … yippee…. Yes, I know I've been off work for two weeks but come on now... I got spoiled during that time. I got to take my naps... ;-)

Tomorrow: Work... again... then coming home and settling in for a peaceful but busy weekend. I must get my house cleaned this weekend. Matt's room is still in a shambles. I don't like to clean it too soon after he leaves because his smell is still in there.

Five snacks I enjoy:

Reeses Cups
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Nutty Buddies
Snickers Ice Cream bars

Ha, when I did this meme I put Zane down as one of my five favorite toys too. Yep, we are in love alright. Very well done. I'm glad that you are finally happy Dixie. It's a wonderful thing isn't it? Big hug. :)

It is so wonderful that your life took a turn from bad into truly wonderful. I'm so happy for you!

Enjoy your weekend and make sure you get a nap or two in! Naps should be reserved for adults as children just don't appreciate them at all!
