More Fun With Lists

What were you doing ten years ago?
Wow...ten years ago...I was working with my buds at a property management company and having the time of my life for the most part. I had finished writing War Wounds but hadn't moved on to anything new. I was single and renting a townhouse with my brother. I had also just recently found Cooper in the back of a shed, paid my $50 and took her home. Still the best decision I ever made.

What were you doing one year ago?
Started my first attempt to finish The Outlaw Bride after placing first in the Toronto RWA Original Golden Opportunity contest and getting a request for a full from HQN. I was also trying to figure out my finances so that I could get to Reno.

I never understood the concept of socks with individual toes. ;-)

Ha! I loved the stuff you wouldn't wear again -- although I'm pretty sure that neon's going to come back big some day and I"ve got a mesh tank top I just can't part with ...

Wow, ten years ago seems like a lifetime to me now. My kids were only one and two, and very, very active. So what was I doing ten years ago...walking around like a sleep deprived zombie.
