Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow...

20 years ago:
1. I was 9 yrs old.
2. I was not student of the week in 4th grade. This is the only grade my whole school life that I wasn't student of the week. My teacher liked to choose the kids who needed a little extra help and boost. I was smart back then. Yah, I don't know what happened either.
3. I still thought boys were icky.

10 years ago:
1. I was in a bad relationship.
2. I had just moved out of Vernal.
3. I was going to WSU majoring in Child and Family Studies, Psychology and Criminology.

5 years ago:
1. I got married.
2. We built a house.
3. I quit my job to work with Marcus.

3 years ago:
1. We brought Christian home.
2. I became a work at home mom.
3. I had surgery that supposedly had nothing to do with our infertility issues. Have you met my daughter? She was conceived two months later!

1 year ago:
1. I gained almost 70 lbs while pregnant with Emma.
2. I was sick at Christmas for the third year in a row.
3. I lost all but fifteen pounds of the baby weight.

So far this year:
1. I had a miscarriage.
2. I ran a half marathon.
3. I made an amazing new friend.

1. I made raspberry jelly.
2. We made a heart wrenching decision.
3. I had a migraine.

1. I wore my boots over my pants...I don't know if I can pull that off.
2. I went to Temple Square and Crown Burger with the Young Men and Young Women and watched thirteen year old's get boy's phone numbers.
3. I took Christian out to lunch.

1. I will finish Christmas cards...I am determined.
2. We will celebrate Jessi's 12th birthday.
3. We will hopefully finish our Christmas shopping for the family.

Next year:
1. We will bring another baby home.
2. I will lose the rest of my "Emma" weight.
3. We will have a better idea of what our business future looks like.
