20 years ago...

Becca just tagged me. :O so now I need to do a blog on what I was doing twenty years ago...

20 years ago 1988
Twenty years ago.. I had just graduated from high school and was starting my first semester of college. I think I started working at the college Feb 1989 in the Media Center.

My school just had our 20 year reunion. I didn't go because I was in the middle of moving back to Utah.

10 years ago 1998
Ten years ago I had been married for five years and was working at Salt Lake Community College in the Media Center.

5 years ago 2003
After working in the Media Center I went to work for Distance Education from 1999-2002. In 2001 my husband joined the National Guard and then in 2002 re-entered the Army. We moved from Salt Lake to Fort Lewis, Washington. February 2003 my husband was sent to Iraq and four and a half years ago we adopted our sweet angel – Brandon.

1 year ago 2007
Let’s see…A year ago we were living at Andrews AirForce Base. In Nov 2004 Rich was sent to Korea and then 9 months into his tour he was sent to Iraq. March of 2006 he was injured and sent to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC (I was living in West Jordan, Ut). We (Brandon and I) moved to Maryland to be with him after 18 months. So a year ago we were living in Maryland, I had just been given the job as 2nd councilor in my ward Relief Society, Rich was recuperating and Brandon was a busy three year old.

Going back some more.. about a month ago we moved back to Utah.
I took my dog to the Vet. She had surgery on her right front paw. We thought that it might be cancer but it wasn’t. She is being naughty and keeps licking it.

Trying to buy a house and get a job.

Go to “build and Grow” at Lowes.
Go to the Zoo.
Go to our wards Trunk or Treat.

So a couple of weeks ago my sister called me and told me the Lowes has this program called Build and Grow for children. They make an item everyother Saturday that's free. They get a certificate showing it's done with a patch that can go on the apron that they give the children. They also gave him some goggles to wear to protect his eyes. So far he has made a firetruck and a skeleton. I couldn't resist taking pictures of him working on his project. Cute huh!

I'm back...

Okay, so I finally figured out how to download my pictures onto my moms computer. I think I will only show a few today and add some more tomorrow or Monday. This is our trip from Maryland to Utah. Not really exciting but I thought it funny that my cat decided to sleep in Brandon's car seat.Here he is looking out the window...
Looking at me.....
Stopped for lunch...
Stop taking my picture, I'm trying to sleep.
