Hey ladies!

I always teach my students to reflect, reflect, and reflect some more.

I thought it would be fun to reflect on where you were a year ago. What was going on in your life? Were there milestones headed your way that you were looking forward to/dreading?

A year ago I was living with my mom but staying with Ryan on weekends.
A year ago I was preparing for Ryan to leaving on deployment.
A year ago I was teaching all subjects, now I'm just teaching English/Language Arts.
A year ago I was spending a lot of money on things I didn't need!
A year ago I was really sad about Ryan leaving.

It feels good to see growth in my life! I'm glad Ryan is home and is in school.

Oooh!

One year ago today, I was living in Washington and Ed was still in Iraq, a couple weeks from coming home! I was still working on the whale-watching boat, and was going to school full-time finishing up my marine bio degree.

Crazy what changes in a year! Now I am out of school, not working (boo), married, and living in California, and Ed is home for a few more months!

A year ago I was just getting back from my honeymoon.
I was getting ready to start my fifth (and possibly last) year of teaching.
I was starting my Portuguese Level 2 class.
I was thinking that I would be staying in London for a couple more years (things change fast!)
I was one year into a job and only going to be there for a few more months.

1 year ago exactly (this week) was when Tru PCS'd to Texas. He took a couple days leave and drove to spend a couple days (including his birthday) with me in Augusta then went back to his place at Benning and packed up the rest of their stuff (him and 2 buddies were PCS'ing at the same time so they all used one big moving truck) and started the drive to Texas. I was so upset, we had no idea when we'd see each other again (at least with a deployment you know you CAN'T see them and there's always a tentative end-date in sight, even if it's a range of time) in relation to his move we also had our first (and only)

A year ago I was chewing up percocet two-tablets-at-a-time and could barely move after having my first of 2 shoulder reconstructive surgeries.


A year ago, I was hating Todd and happy to know he had said already that he wanted to break up and it was a matter of time (6 more weeks)


A year ago, I was thinking I would be single the rest of my life, and I was ok with that idea


A year ago, I had only been in the Army for 7 months.


A year ago, I was still paying off the last of $30K from my divorce expenses. They are all paid off now.


This year, my kids are happy, we have moved on to Ft Belvoir, and I have watched them bloom and make great friends, I have found the love of my life and look forward to each day with him and find him exponentially sexier and hot than I did the day I met him, today we are talking about getting married when I am ready, my kids trust Justin (a big thing for them), my job is going great, I am working on my board file for promotion to MAJ in a few months and moving forward with military education....life is all good!!!

A year ago I was starting my first year in my Masters program.
A year ago I was a few weeks away from Y coming home from deployment.

Today I'm in my second year and about 9 months away from having my Masters.
Today I have less than 11 weeks until I can call Y my husband!

Hm. I don't seem to have such obvious changes. lol

A year ago a good friend I knew since 7th grade died unexpectedly in his sleep from a seizure. He was only 25.


A year ago I went to Vegas to visit Rob's family, they were all convinced I was pregnant...


When we came home from that trip, I got that BFP (Big fat positive)

Stacey - I remember talking to you in the DMM chat the night before you left for TX to get married. I can't believe it's been a year :) Congratulations!

A year ago...

...Mark was flying back to Germany after 2 weeks of leave. While he was home he asked me to move to Germany with him until he deployed.

...I was living at home and applying for jobs.

...I decided to move to Germany and ended up being there for about 2 months!

Now, I'm back at home (boo) after working in MD for a few months, and I just bought a ticket to go BACK to Germany from the end of Nov til the end of Dec!
