10 years ago – I lived in Haslett (east of East Lansing), I still worked at the Department of Education for the State of Michigan. I really miss both, I loved the job (I left because my boss left and I went to work for him at another job) and I really miss the Lansing area. I definitely miss the (lack of) traffic and (lack of) construction that we have in the Detroit area. I miss my little apartment too, I was right next door to a 24 hour Quality Dairy (w/laundramat) so I could get ice cream, donuts, milk, do laundry, get lottery tickets and use an ATM any time of the day or night. And I was right by Lake Lansing, I could put in all my laundry (not just one load) and go sit at the park by they lake or rollerblade around the lake… Did I say I missed living there?!?
5 years ago – I’m thinking I was sick. I only remember because it was the year I bought my condo (in October) and I remember being so very sick that September with (I don’t even remember exactly) some kind of lung infection. I had moved back to the Detroit area the year before and I don’t remember much else.


1 years ago – I don’t have a clue what I was up to last year at this time (same job, same home, same stuff). I don’t even remember what I did for labor day (I hope that’s not insulting to anyone).
1 day ago – After all the chaos of starting up the school year, I had a nice quiet day at work (we were closed so no one was around) and got to catch up. In the evening I hung out with a bunch of my high school friends (some were in town for a reunion, so we all got together). Always great fun to see all of them!

One day ago is referring to Friday, since I wrote this late Saturday but I try not to post that late at night since it ends to be garbly posts that need to be corrected later. This one probably would have been okay :)

Now I’m really missing mid-Michigan though…

Had a great day yesterday. Stopped at the Howell Outlet Mall, got the exact shoes I was looking for and some stuff I wasn’t looking for: shirts, sunglasses and some bowls. Weather was great until we got to EL then it was drizzly on and off :(

Got chinese (I love Charlie Kangs!) and ice cream and long islands and saw some friends we hadn’t seen in a while. Found an Egypt book on the discount rack at Barnes and Noble so I’ll be looking that over. Never did get those chicken wings I wanted though…
