This tag is from my beautiful cousin Julia who has a secret and won't tell me. But I am going to do the post anyway. I'm sure when she decides to divulge, I will be the first one to know because I did the tag. So here goes.
20 years ago:
I was 11 and just finishing up the sixth grade at Mountain View Elementary in Burley. Sixth grade was a bad year for me. The three B's about sum it up: Braces, Bad perm, and Bon Jovi (that was the year he got married, I remember I was so mad). I still remember a substitute teacher telling us that the two boys who always got in trouble and had to sit in the "naughty chairs" or whatever, would end up in prison. They probably did, just because she said that. Maybe I should google them and see if I can figure it out.
10 years ago:
Finishing up my sophomore year at BYU and getting ready to go to London for my summer term at the BYU London Center (it is actually spelled "centre" but oh, that bugs me, so I refuse to spell it that way). I loved that summer so much! I wish I could have it back.
5 years ago:
My firstborn, Dallin, was 3 months old. I was working from home doing web design for the State of Utah and totally and completely loving my life.
3 years ago:
Dallin was 2 and I was pregnant with Lukie, just getting past the yucky sick stage. We were living in our old house. I loved that neighborhood! Yes, I know it is only 3 miles away and I know a lot of people from that ward better now than I did when I lived there, but I still miss it!
1 year ago:
I was pregnant with Abby and just getting past the yucky sick stage. I had just found out I was having a girl. I was the assistant camp director and trying to figure out all the food for camp so I could go and check it off my list and not have to worry about young women any more (ha ha!). The weeds in our yard were sprouting nicely. I'm glad it's not last summer!
So far this year:
I don't feel like I have had more than 5 minutes of spare time. We finally got our yard put in. Abby has been sleeping through the night since Valentine's Day. Dallin graduated from preschool. Luke puts me in time out on a regular basis. Jason made his first hunting movie and is getting ready to sell it. And me? I made an apron.
Did laundry. Ordered some wheat and thought about rice. Got my hair cut. Did some Young Women's stuff. Planted my potatoes. Helped Jason put together the kids' new play set (if you've never heard my husband swear, I think he is going to be working on it again today - come on over!). Cut out some muslin to start a new stitching project. Cleaned the house. Hung out with three of my favorite peeps (Alison, Julia & Teresa) and ate Cafe Rio at Alison's house while the kids ran around like tornadoes. Fell into bed completely exhausted without watching The Office.
Looking forward to watching The Office from last night with Jason (we're not allowed to watch it without each other. We usually watch it twice so we don't miss anything. We actually haven't even watched last week's episode yet! I'm so excited.). Going visiting teaching at 10. Finishing the laundry. Working on the play set. Getting the outside windows cleaned if it doesn't rain, and yes, I am paying someone to it! Making the dreaded trip to Wal Mart. Going to help clean a friend's house, which will be bittersweet, but I'm looking forward to it.
Abby's surgery at the end of the month. Not going to Lake Powell with my family (sniff sniff!). Not going to girls camp, which is more stressful than actually going! Having a wonderful summer playing outside with my kids and letting the house go to pot. I can't wait for my garden! I'm secretly planting some sunflowers and I hope Jason doesn't rip them out because he hates them and thinks they are weeds, but they make me happy so I think I should have them. The Cassia County Fair is on the agenda for August, of course. We are taking the kids to Kansas in the fall for our family trip this year (can't wait!!!). And of course I'm planning on enjoying every minute with my beautiful kids and great husband!!!
I tag... you. If you feel like it. Maybe I will tell you a secret if you do!
