Thursday Thirteen

My #3, the #48 (I missed a few weeks!)
Got this idea from Smoochdog

Thirteen things about my last 13 years.

1. 2006 - I finally got a raise because I asked for it and definitely deserved it!

2. 2005 - Mum died June 26. Still healing.

3. 2004 - Went to Ireland with Mum and my youngest daughter. Had a great time. I started a new job as Project Manager within the same company. Another good move.

4. 2003 - My daughter went to Spain on an exchange. She really grew from the experience.

5. 2002 - My son graduated high school. This was a milestone. There were some days I thought this might never happen. He's doing great in college now!

6. 2001 - Started a new job with a new company. Good company. Good management. Good move.

7. 2000 - Got my doggie ~ my new baby. Had to really work on hubby at the time but they instantly became best buddies.

8. 1999 - Auntie Kay died March 15. My second mom. Still can't believe she is gone. She was such a strong influence in my life.

9. 1998 - Got a Nissan Pathfinder. Still have it, gas hog that it is.

10. 1997 - Can't remember what happened except that these years were good.

11. 1996 - Married 7 years, never got the 7 year itch. It will be 17 years this August.

12. 1995 - Installed an in-ground pool. Still loving it!

13. 1994 - My baby started kindergarten.

Very good memory, not sure I could recall all that!
My daughter studied in Spain for a summer too and loved it, I think in 2004!
