You're so accomplished! I mean, seriously, it's incredible seeing all that without it making you seem old or anything, if that makes sense. I mean, it seems like you're at the beginning of your life, but then you've raised children.

I'd have to really do some work to do this meme, I think. My life seems like a big mush.:-)

Accomplished! Woah. *G*

Boy, it seems like I haven't done anything at all. Although I will admit that raising the kids was a big Anything. They're so cool, all of them.
the day you left was just my beginning

Did I suggest that you hadn't?

Also, I bought that CD for my mom for her birthday. Along with a biography of Johnny Cash.

As I so often do with memes, I ganked this from you, and I was just saying to Way2, the thing that interests me about this meme is how much stuff you don't get to put on it because the stuff happened in "off-years." Not that it's uncool to see the things I've done at these time intervals, of course. It's just that some of the most formative events of my life don't even get a mention on this meme, because they were technically confined to "7 years ago" or "13 years ago," even though their effects continue every day. Know what I mean?

Yeah. Like when I was divorced and when I got better from my broken-heart thing, and. Yeah.
