Emotional Taggage

August 22, 2005
Witchful Thinking tagged me the other day and so here goes.

What was I doing 10 years ago?

1995 – August I was 19 years old. Almost 20. Thin, in great shape (or so I thought). I was on the last family vacation we’d ever take as a family (before the divorce). It was our first and last family trek to Walt Disney World. We had the time of our lives. Little did I know that I had cancer growing inside my chest. You can see the lump in my neck in our group picture outside of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Sad/

What was I doing 5 years ago?

August, 2000 – I was about to turn 25. I was living at home with my Mom in Brusly. I was working at some godawful job – who knows. I was dating the ex.

What was I doing 1 year ago?

Well – why not have a look-see here? Okay – so it’s the 25th of August – close enough.

What was I doing yesterday?

Yesterday we skipped church like the naughty kids that we are. He somehow convinced me to go to Hooter’s for lunch (of all places) but I did enjoy the hotdog. Then Target – then a child’s birthday party – which was cool – at home for a nap, tv, leftover pizza, etc. Pretty dull day, overall.

What am I doing today?
