Never did party like it was 1999, though.

Then: August 1999

1. Age: 20

2. Romantic Status: Engaged, Married August 28th.

August 1999 - Bridezilla

3. Occupation: Full time parent to one toddler and one infant.

4. Fun night out:  Any night out.  We didn't get many nights out.  They were usually nights out to grocery shop without two crying babies.

5. My BFFs:  Ha.  Probably Amy at this point, she would walk up to my house and we'd go for walks up to the playground with the kids.

6. I spent way too much time:  Changing diapers, potty-training my oldest daughter.

7. I spent not enough time: Doing much of anything else.

8. I wanted to be when I grew up: I had NO idea then, I have a little more motivation now.

9. Biggest concern:  Living on one small Wal*Mart Manager's income, dealing with a serious asshole neighbor, we eventually moved because of him. I wonder what became of that man.  *twitch*

10. What my biggest concern should have been: Getting some schooling accomplished - we probably qualified for aid then.

11. Where did I live:  A condo that we should have kept and sold for serious $$$ if we waited a little bit longer.

12. Dumbest thing I did that year:  Gave birth?  Got married?  LOL.  I don't know.  It's a bluuuur.

13. If I could go back now and talk to myself I would say:  Stop gaining weight now, stupid!

14. Picture of me then:

Just after baby #2, '99...

Now: August 2009

1. Age: 30

3. Occupation: Mom or four

4. Fun night out:  Again, ANY NIGHT OUT, there's fewer even NOW!

5. My BFFs: Ha ha, that's funny right?

6. I spend way too much time: Doing household shit and not being productive.

7. I spend not enough time: Being productive.

8. I want to be when I grow up: Many things, mainly retired from whatever it is I DO.

9. Biggest concern: Financial ruin, not being able to provide for six humans.

10. What my biggest concern should be: The same, and getting my ass prepared to work.

11. Where do I live: In the same area - four houses later.

12. Dumbest thing I have done this year:  Just one thing?

13. What I think I would say to myself in 10 years:  "Grandma?"  SCREAM.

Summary:

1. What do I miss most from 1999: Not a damn thing, oh, wait, we weren't plugged in to the 'net then!  Technology was not part of my life.

2. What do I miss least from 1999:  Being broker than broke.  Not that we're still not up to our eyes in bills, but we don't have to borrow toilet paper!

3. What have I accomplished in 10 years that I am most proud of:  I made two more healthy humans, I lost 170 pounds (initially, not right now) and made it to 2009!  We are all alive and well.  That's enough.

4. What have I NOT accomplished in 10 years that I wish I had:  A million things, but, I have time.
