This Week in the History of My Life

1958: I prepare to turn 1 and become a big sister.
1959: I prepare to turn 2 and become a big sister again.
1965: I prepare to turn 8 and become a big sister Again!

1975: I am about to start a 2 yr Medical Lab Tech training program and what I
fondly refer to as 2 years of hell. 2 years of peering through a
microscope at worms, sperms and germs until I thought my eyeballs
would dry up and fall out of my face.

1979: I am about to get married. There are a few glitches in the plans. We need
a new Best Man. We need a new priest (my cousin is sick). We need Dad
to recover from a stroke and be discharged from the hospital.

1984: I am expecting my first baby that will become Cape Cod Kid. (Dad called
him a little Pilgrim because he was born in Plymouth MA, right down the
street from the rock).

1987: Expecting my little Sorority Girl. Glad we are in a real house, now.

1994: Last birthday Dad and I would share. July would never be the same.

2006: Getting ready to fly back to MA after driving the Sorority Girl to Florida and wait for the Cape Cod House to sell.

2008: I want a new job and a new body. Both are getting really old.

Quite the momentous week for you!

I think you'll have an easier time getting the new job than you will the new body.
