April 16 — 10 years ago.
I had a hard time finding a picture for this one. 2005 was a year before I started using a digital camera and downloading pictures to my computer. I do have some pictures from that year and, being the organized person that I am, I was able to find them, but I took no pictures until July 2005 and then only took a few. The next batch of pictures I have is from Halloween and then Christmas 2005. I do have my calendar from then, I save all my calendars.
I can see by looking through the year that I did a lot of driving as my son was playing golf in high school and since I worked from home I was the “golf mom” who took the high school golf team to their practices around the Bay Area. My daughter had softball on the weekends and I worked a lot (that’s a good thing since I was just in my fourth year of working from home)!
As I go through the rest of the year I see that two of our friends got married and I reconnected with some high school friends that I had not seen in a long time. We had a girls night out and went to see Menopause, The Musical in San Francisco. It was a really fun night and fortunately I’ve been able to keep in touch with them.
Other than that, and the fact that I turned 50 in March of 2005, not too much interesting happened in our little corner of the world. How about you? Where were you 10 years ago?
