Totally Cheating

It has been such a long time, and there is so much to tell... and yet I am going to cheat by doing a meme. I haven't been tagged (because honestly I don't think there is anyone out there reading these words), but what the heck. I just want to keep this blog active, and my New Year's resolution is to write at least once a week in 2010, and hopefully more. I love reading other "Mommy" blogs, even though I hate that label, and I would love to add to them, and possibly be a source of entertainment and solace for some other first-timer out there. Anyway. On to the meme!

Ten years ago, I was 21 years old. I think that should probably answer that question!
