Lifetime Meme (blame Brad)

10 years ago: I was doing a play at a tiny tiny theater that involved wearing an ugly ugly dress, was in the scary fanatical phase of becoming a “Born-Again Christian” but still getting drunk way too often, and preparing for my first missions trip, to build houses with Habitat for Humanity.
5 years ago: Was living in an amazing apartment, working in a job I loved, spent most of my time at church or with friends from church, was just getting back into the SCA after a long break, and was getting ready to buy my first non-junker car.
1 year ago: Was living in a house with a juvenile delinquent who had just been taken back to jail complete with a “COPS”-worthy 911 call and pepper-spraying, was about to break the heart of the man I loved by telling him that I had been lying to him, was very much looking forward to meeting Brad and Jen when they came to california, and to flying to Austin to meet Caryn.
Last Week: (I added this one to make my “Yesterday” make sense) I decided to join OA, and went to my first meeting up in San Francisco.
Yesterday: I worked all day, managed to stay in control of my eating, and went to an OA meeting.
Today: Working again, and have a Westermark meeting tonight.
Tomorrow: Either hanging out with Lolly or going to an OA meeting, and finishing up the difficult post I am working on.

    Ah crap.
    I was looking at this thinking “Hey, this looks like fun— oh. I’ve been tagged.” That is, I look forward to it, but as soon as I saw my name I froze and couldn’t remember what I wanted to write.
    I’m gonna go out and when I come back I should have something. Yep.
    Congrats on OA. I’ve been thinking about doing something like that myself.
