10 years ago...
oh wow... I can't remember last week but let's go back to 2005 & find some 5 things to chat about.
ONE // I never ran
I was not a runner till 2009. You couldn't PAY me enough to run. I thought it was dumb. I knew my knees couldn't do it. I thought it had to be boring. & why do people pay to do races. The whole concept was something I couldn't put my mind around. My fitness of choice? Jazzercise. Yeah baby. Break out the leg warmers. I really did/do love Jazzercise. It's a full body work out & if it fit into my schedule & I had one closer to me, I'd still go.
TWO // We got Bruno
We rescued a dog without even knowing what he looked like. What the heck is a Carine Terrier? A friend my husband worked with had a friend that had to get rid of her dog because she was moving to an apartment that wouldn't allow him. She was devastated. We had our grand-Pug at our house at the time & he was moving to his new home so we were used to 3 dogs & knew we'd miss the little guy when he was gone, so we said yes. No clue about the breed. Ricky went & picked him up, & I waited anxiously on the front porch with the other 2 dogs. Ricky came around the corner with him & said, "He looks like a rat"... I instantly fell in love with him. Now, Bruno didn't care for our 2 big girls, Sydney & Buffy & snipped at them but our girls knew how to handle themselves. It didn't take long before we were all a family. Our little boy is now what I call, our Grumpy Old Man.
THREE // We celebrated a wedding
My step daughter got married in 2005. We got to travel to Arkansas for her wedding - somewhere we had never been before. It was such a fun car ride. I had our grand-pug who stayed with us during their honeymoon for the ride from Indiana to Arkansas & we also had the youngest step daughter in the back seat to entertain us. I'm not a good traveler, but that really was a fun trip. & of course, weddings are just fun & beautiful & emotional all wrapped up together.
FOUR // Same place
My day job... still the same place. Been here 23 years. More then half of my life. That is depressing.
FIVE // I ate meat & drank diet coke
That disturbs me more then I can saw. When I think about my eating habits & the things I ate & the way it effects my health & didn't give 2 thoughts about it all - just makes me sad. Ever since I gave up meat, my digestive system is better, my skin is better, I feel healthier in general. & Diet Cokes? I'm so glad I opened my eyes to what all that junk does to you. Poison. & not the cool kind that sang Every Rose Has its Thorn.
