I've been tagged by A B C to do this meme that asks What Were You Doing 10, 20 and 30 years ago.

So lets see 10 years ago I was marrying the love of my life on a beautiful day in May. It would have been my Grandparents 50th wedding anniversary that day and year so it was extra special to me. I was the mother of a 3 year old and I worked at a nursing home caring for the elderly. I lived in Winnipeg at the time, although we had tried a stint at living in Calgary, AB with my in-laws (yes I said I lived with my in-laws) which was wrong on so many levels but that is a book for another day.

20 years ago I entered my teen years, exactly where Morgyn is today. How did my mother survive 4 of us? and not kick some serious ass leaves me in awe! Times were different then I guess. I cheated and googled back to 1997 LOL and I totally remember listening to this music
1."Open Your Heart" ... Madonna
2."Livin' on a Prayer" ... Bon Jovi (see my love for them goes waaaaay back)
3 ."Jacob's Ladder" ... Huey Lewis and the News
4."Lean on Me" ... Club Nouveau
5."Nothing's Going to Stop Us Now" ... Starship
6."I Knew You Were Waiting" ... Aretha Franklin & George Michael
7."Died in Your Arms" ... Cutting Crew
8."With or Without You" ... U2
9."You Keep Me Hangin' On" ... Kim Wilde
10."Always" ... Atlantic Starr

30 years ago (sigh wow that sounds so long ago) I was 3. Yup just a little older than Jillian. I don't remember much about that time. I lost my Nanny that year, just days after I had turned 3. That is one thing I can say has left a void in my life I have always missed. All I know is what I was told about her and I, and it is heartbreaking to think how we missed out on the love of this wonderful woman.

While doing this is made me think of how significant different times in your life can be, but how they all come together later in life.

Now I can only hope that A B C shows up as the person who tagged me? (Nope had to remove what I had there since it wasn't right) If not anyone that reads this feel free to leave a long detailed comment as to how I can insert people I whos blogs I read onto posts. I just can't seem to figure it out??

Oh ya and I tag Chelle/Jolene/Kristi if you guys happen to come by :-) (and anyone else really, leave a comment if you do I would love to read your posts)

I'm glad you participated! To link me or other people to your blog post, you need to find the link button as you're typing the message. At the top of the area where you type the actual message, you'll see "Font" and count in 6 items along the toolbar, moving to the right. It's the button that looks like a green globe with one chain link at the top. Click on that and you'll get a box. Leave the first blank alone (as HTTP:) and the second blank you fill in the complete website of where you want to direct people. Or you can just go to the blog that you want to link in another window and click on the website address and copy it directly to this spot. Once you're done, click okay, and the word will have an underline, meaning it's a link. Good luck. Let me know if you have any questions!
