Tagless MeMe...Where was I?
I wasn't tagged. But I have to prove to Dr. Flea that he didn't alienate me by answering another "meme".
Well, that, and I really like these things. :)
Where was I one year ago?
I was finishing my 2nd semester of Nursing school (Level 2). I was finally feeling more Nurse-y with the greater responsibilities I was given. Planning my daughter's 4th birthday party, swearing I was going to lose weight and quit smoking over the summer during my Psych rotation. I was also thinking that this time, this month (Now) could not possibly come any sooner.
Where was I 5 years ago?
Was just about to give birth to my first child, my daughter Ari. I was just about to start maternity leave at the hospital and attending my baby showers and finishing up the final touches on the Moon and Star themed nursery. Mike was still alive and in remission having just completed radiation therapy. All residual side effects had faded and he was feeling pretty good. The plan was for me to have baby, stay home with hubby and baby until June and then go back to work part-time. That worked until Mike got really sick again in August.
Where was I 10 years ago?
Still in Newlywed status, Mike and I were just growing accustomed to living in the armpit of the US; Shreveport, LA. The smelliest,rudest, most crime infested city I've ever lived in. Mike was in the Air Force doing his police thing. I had just begun working at a discount drycleaners, where I would stay for 2 years. I worked about 55 hours a week there for minimum wage and managed the store by myself for a year of that. I dealt with it because it was an easy job....take in clothes, tag them, bag them,wait for boss/owner to pick them up, give clean clothes back, count register, deal with complaints. It was a job.(and it was me and Mike against the whole world....sigh)
