Sunday Stealing: Janana's Now Vs. Then Meme

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: Janana's Now Vs. Then Meme
It's been a while since we had to post rules. But here we will list the relevent ones:

*Think back to ten years ago on this month.
*Write truthful answers and ELABORATE. This makes it more interesting!
*If you don't have a scanner you may omit #14 but I think if you do you should totally do it!
*It's about personal changes. Have fun with it!

Then: August 1999

1. Age: Heck I don't even remember how old I am today, much less then. I think I'm going to be 37 this year... so I guess I was 26???

2. Romantic Status: Had just celebrated our 4th anniversary.

3. Occupation: Mom

4. Fun night out: Going grocery shopping without the kids.

5. My BFFs: Melissa

6. I spent way too much time: on the computer

7. I spent not enough time: cleaning my house

8. I wanted to be when I grew up: ok if this is the same question down the line it would have the same answer, wouldn't it? Anyway. I wanted to be a vet.

9. Biggest concern: growing up... hey, I was almost 30 afterall.

10. What my biggest concern should have been: shoulda coulda woulda... who cares?

11. Where did I live: in a house

12. Dumbest thing I did that year: I don't know... got out of bed? It was a pretty good year.

13. If I could go back now and talk to myself I would say: the Powerball numbers for the next 10 years of weekly drawings are:

14. Picture of me then: thats me in the middle. Hey look - no double chin.


Now: August 2009

1. Age: add 10.

2. Romantic Status: Just celebrated our.... add 10.... 14th anniversary

3. Occupation: Mom & graphic designer

4. Fun night out: going grocery shopping without the kids

5. My BFFs: Melissa... and I've gained one - Kimber

6. I spend way too much time: on the computer

7. I spend not enough time: cleaning the house

8. I want to be when I grow up: I knew it wasn't going to make sense. Same answer.

9. Biggest concern: wrinkles.

10. What my biggest concern should be: it should be wrinkles. They are coming fast.

11. Where do I live: Same place.

12. Dumbest thing I have done this year: Started doing blog memes?

13. What I think I would say to myself in 10 years: why are you still doing memes? Aren't you sick of them yet?

Summary:

1. What do I miss most from 1999: those 4 & 5 year olds running around the house...

2. What do I miss least from 1999: the fear of the world ending on December 31st.

3. What have I accomplished in 10 years that I am most proud of: my computer skills

4. What have I NOT accomplished in 10 years that I wish I had: I never did win that damn Powerball.
