20 years ago.....

I haven't been tagged to do this, but I saw where Julie did this post and it looked kinda fun, so I thought I'd jump in and do it too. I'm supposed to tell what I was doing 20, 10, 5, and 1 year ago, also yesterday, today, and tomorrow. goes!

20 years ago (1988)

I was a sophomore at Greater Atlanta Christian School and 15 years old. it bad that I can't seem to remember too many details? Anyone reading this who knew me then feel free to help me out with this one! I was living in Lilburn, GA (suburb of Atlanta) and attended Campus Church of Christ. Likely friends to hang out with on the weekends: Alethea, Tracy, Cheri

10 years ago (1998)

Chris & I had gotten married August 1994, and we were living in Uvalde, TX after having lived in Abilene & Lubbock. I was in my 3rd year of teaching (2nd year of teaching 2nd grade). We hadn't bought our house yet, so we were still living in our rent house. That rent house was really neat. Not to say that I'd want to still be living in it because it also had some odd things about it, but it was neat. It was out by itself on some other guy's land and it was quiet. I'm not sure I appreciated that too much until we moved here to Houston! ha! :) We were attending church at South Getty Church of Christ and had a nice group of 'older' Christians to look up to: the Royal's, the Lester's, the Forehand's, the Hale's, among others. No children yet at this point.

5 years ago (2003)

We were living in Aiken, SC having moved there in May 2001. Our precious Gracie had been born in July 2000, so she was just over 3 years old and I guess by this point we knew we were pregnant again although we didn't know if the baby was a boy or a girl yet. (We didn't find out for sure until Katie was born in March 2004) We were attending Aiken Church of Christ and had many friends in our same "stage of life."

1 year ago (2007)

We were still living in Aiken, SC and still attending the same church. We didn't yet know we were pregnant with our adorable Ellie although maybe we actually were???? Close anyway if not since her birthday is June 24! :) At this point we had NO idea we would be living in Houston, TX less than a year later although I think Chris was starting to feel quite unsettled with his job, so maybe he had more of an idea of a move than I did! Wow! What a change! Gracie was 7 and in 2nd grade at Millbrook Elementary School. Katie was 3 and going to Mother's Day Out one day a week at First Baptist.

yesterday (September 27, 2008)

I actually stayed inside most of the day and slept a good portion of the afternoon since I've been feeling quite under the weather. Allergies, sinuses, etc. Hard to believe you can feel so bad from something like that! I did go through some of the girls' clothes trying to figure out what they have for this Fall.

today (September 28, 2008)

We went to church this morning. Gracie went out with a group from church for a service/fun project. Katie & Ellie napped. Chris watched football. I went to 2 grocery stores. Ellie & I stayed home tonight because I really wasn't feeling well. We watched the premiere of Amazing Race when Chris got home-our favorite show!

tomorrow (September 29, 2008)

Chris will go to work. Katie, Ellie, & I will take Gracie to school. Provided I feel like it, we'll work on getting the house ready for Grammer to come visit this week! Another week will begin!

I'd like to see these people complete a post like this of their own:

*Cindy D.
