Mariposa is hosting Fun Monday again this week and she asks: Where were you and what were you doing exactly 5 years ago?
For those of you that aren’t aware, as long as you don’t delete messages in Gmail, it will keep them until you run out of space. As I wasn’t blogging then, I have to rely on email to tell me the story.
2005–end of August. It was a Tuesday. My husband had just started his 2nd full year of college, and I was recovering from my appendicitis. I was researching what to do with my401K. That may have even been the day I went back to work post surgery, but I can’t be entirely sure. We had just gotten text messaging and my husband, while walking to class was sending me information about the types of animals he saw on the way (8/24 he saw 6 deer, 4 of which had spots, who didn’t move as he walked by)—the text messages emailed themselves to me, that’s how I know! Also on 8/24 I sent an encouraging email to ‘the best man at our wedding’s’ mom. She had just gotten a job at the place I had just left, taking the place of a lady that had held the same position for 30 years. Wasn’t that nice of me?
