Whoa, I was tagged!

I try to keep totally nonbusiness stuff to a low roar, but I was tagged by Adorneya, so here goes!

10 years ago today: August 27, 1995
Being super nervous about starting my junior year of high school because I was starting Governor's School of the Arts and didn't know what to expect

5 years ago today: August 27, 2000
Let's see, I was working at the Galaxy Diner, had just turned 21, and was living at 312 Laurel in Oregon Hill, so I was probably out with my (now former) best friend drinking ourselves stupid. We did a lot of that back then.

1 year ago today: August 27, 2004
I was 6 months pregnant with Eliza. It was a Friday night, so my husband of 5 months and I were probably at my dad's for Family Night. (yes, it's "funny math"....scandalous!)

yesterday: August 26, 2005
Spent the day making promos and the night at my dad's for Family Night! Came home a bit early because Eliza (now 9 months old) was tired and spent the rest of the evening figuring out and spending $50 (!!) on postage for said promos.

tomorrow: August 28, 2005
Sew, sew, sew! Have one trade to finish up and several to start, plus I have shows the next two weekends in a row, so have to stock up. Will also drop off promo packages, finish up last bits of promos to send out on Monday, and will kiss my cute hubby!
