Going Retro

Just some random musings. My daughter goes to Kindergarten in two weeks, and the memories of her infancy are fading. So it goes for everyone, days pass slowly and the years quickly.

One year ago, I was doing pretty much the same thing as today: surfing the internet, quilting, and taking a little girl to the pool.

Five years ago, I had season tickets to the WNBA Phoenix Mercury and we were waiting for our daughter's birth.

Ten years ago, I was a newlywed and taking summer classes for my masters degree.

Fifteen years ago, I was adjusting to single life after my first husband walked out.

Twenty years ago, I saw "Terminator 2" before my senior year in college. (Funny how those random facts pop into your head!) I had a computer in my dorm room, but I went to the library to do research. I used a push-button pay phone to call home on the weekends. We watched VHS movies and Garth Brooks was a superstar.
