In the game of tag you have to be fast...

Man. This blogging community is high speed. You turn around and someone tags you and you are it. Just like when we used to play in our front yard with all the neighborhood kids--I'm going to move quick this time so I don't get stuck being "it" forever. Ahh. Late summer evenings.

Thanks to Bruce Buzbee at the RootsMagic blog and T.K. at Before My Time for tagging me. Fun to see old friends and make some new ones in the neighborhood. So here we go..

10 Years ago I:
  • Brought a child into the world. (of course the most important)
  • Finished scrapbooking my life and my husbands life up to that point (and haven't done much more since but at least did it archivally)
  • Found and bought the house we live in now.
  • Saw my Mother-in-Law for the last time before she passed away.
  • Was exhausted and blissful raising small children.

Hello! I am visiting from T.K.'s blog after she tagged me for the meme. Nice to see we have some things in common (besides genealogy).

Thanks for Tagging me - I just wanted to let you know that I also lived in Torrance for a bit (just moved to Lomita actually).
