Milestone.....

Tomorrow I turn the big 3-0. I'm not mourning it, but looking forward to it. As I think back of all the things I've accomplished in the past thirty years, I can only hope my next thirty years are as good. What have I done these past thirty years....let's reflect, shall we?
  • Got my drivers license, graduated high school and voted for president for my first time.
  • Dyed my hair various colors and styled it various ways. Some turning out much, much better than others.
  • Received one speeding ticket and talked my way out of three others.
  • Graduated with a 4-year degree in 3 1/2 years at SCSU (now that's an accomplishment!)
  • Worked at a golf course, a taconite plant, a restaurant, a library, Target, a manufacturing plant and a hospital.
  • Had 2 amazing, wonderful, beautiful boys.
  • Married a wonderful man.
  • Bought a house without even seeing it in person.
  • Walked sixty miles in three days for breast cancer awareness.
  • Bought two new vehicles at the same time. SCARY!
  • Made new friends.
  • Got laid off. Got promoted.
  • Have learned what's really important in life.

I could go on, but bottom line is that in the past 30 years, I've experienced many things and learned even more. Here's to another 30 years!
