My dear friend DixiePeach has tagged me with a meme:

10 years ago: I was 911 Director at the Sheriff's Office and pretty stressed out. I was single, living in my own house with my three kitties.

5 years ago: I was married nearly a year and was happy except in that we lived in a VERY small town in a trailer both of which I hated and rarely speak about now.

1 year ago: E and I were beginning to look at houses to buy.

Yesterday: I had a fight with E and his grouchy self born out of the fact that he's quitting smoking and had finished his last pack. (We made up later, of course)
