WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO?
Ten years ago, I was working as the IS Manager at a letter shop.

Finish the purse for Daughter #3;
Trace off a pattern for Daughter #1;
Yard work;

Thanks for the nomination, Paula. I finally responded...

I'll come cook for you! (...if you have a freezer. I've been making up freezer meals in advance; makes life a lot easier at suppertime...) How much is a ticket to Snohomish? :D
