Down and out 03

Well, here I am in Sick City, Idaho. I don't have much to do, so I'm just vegi'n out here. I got my laptop loaded with all the programs I'll need for when I head back to St. George, and all my music CD's have been condensed into a few thousand MP3's and stored on my new 20 gig hard drive. I can't believe how small those things are for laptops. When I was working at Hewlett-Packard (nearly ten years ago) I remember seeing a display some of the first hard drives, they were so big.

Tonight my mom and her husband remembered their wedding anniversary was last week. It's been 14 years. It's hard to believe I'm that old. I was 14 then. All my little sisters from then are married and have at least 2 and half kids (I have a total of 5 awesome nieces, and 4 nephews from my little sisters). Except my 4th little sister, she's only 12, soon to be 13.

Anyway, it got me feeling nostalgic, so I pulled out some of my mom's photo albums. I started at their wedding 14 years ago and looked through about three years of pictures. With the way my mom takes pictures, that's about four full albums. It brought back some fun memories. Not my best memories, I'd have to go back to ‘85 for those, but it was nice. Perhaps tomorrow I'll start from the beginning, that would be around ‘75, just slightly before me.
