I've Erased The Last Seven Titles

Must be the age . . .

Ten years ago, I never used the words:
  • blog
  • texting
  • curriculum based assessment
  • service learning
  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • merino
  • K2tog, SSK, yo (well, maybe a variation on that one)
  • high speed Internet
  • HD
Twenty years ago, I never knew that:
  • my bachelor's degree would be useless
  • having an empty nest would be okay (or that I would even have a need for that term)
  • being married to the same person for almost 20 years is doable
  • I would live so far away from my family
  • I might get back in contact with friends from high school
  • meeting people from the Internet isn't always a set-up for involuntary organ donation
Thirty years ago, I never worried about:
  • wrinkles
  • terrorism
  • the economy
  • how many students would be on the autistic spectrum
  • whether or not my children were okay
  • my students and their high stakes testing
  • my husband every time he leaves for a long flight
  • if I would move away from Indiana
BAM: On Turning 41
BAM . . . week one

Forty-one years ago, it all began.

    The empty nest is OK...20 more years should be easy...thanks for worrying about me on the long flights.
    I love you,
