In all honesty I have a terrible memory, I need to have a brain MRI, I forget things easily and that drives my wife crazy, she tells me :" you have SELECTIVE MEMORY".
Whatever that means. LOL

Khaled, thanks for my very first tag! For some of those you tagged, they will still have been be in diapers using those wipes you mentioned 20 years ago!

Since I don't have a blog yet-

Nearly 20 years ago I left CA and moved to Europe to work in a refugee camp - certain God had more for me to do than develop real estate.

15 years ago my husband and I were married YAY!

10 years ago I was rejoicing over a busy one year old and mourning two miscarriages (in Jordan)

5 years ago discovered I was carrying surprise #4 and got the girl!

1 year ago I was going crazy trying to home-school my oldest son

What was next? whew, the brain dead thing, it's kids!

Last week, stressed to get an article written that my editor never told me was for NEXT month. House a wreck.

Yesterday, tried and get the house in order. Failed, but played with kids.

Today, tried to get house in order, enlisted the kids, succeeded. Emailed all the jp ladies for a lady meet-up! Next time, Mrs. Palforce will be an honored invitee.

Tomorrow, try to keep all under control when hubby goes on a business trip. Can't even think about the future beyond tomorrow!

(Probably alot like Mrs. Palforce!)

blessings! Hope you sold all you needed it. I'll pray for some wealthy shoppng addicts to find your store. :)
