{memory lane tag...}

opps just realized that it has been over a week since i have posted. sorry. i guess that you just need to be in the mood and i've been sick... so i guess no mood.

i was tagged the other day by trudi and have done that one before so i thought that i would
take a trip down memory lane this tag....

20 years ago i was 8. i had just gotten baptized a month ago at temple beach in laie and had convinced myself that i wasn't doing a good job at it cause my ctr ring was turning my finger green. no matter how hard i tried to choose the right, it was green. then my mom bought me a cool new one from the bookstore and it never did it again. i was amazed... i was 8.

10 years ago i was 18. i had just gotten back from europe with the photo club, had gone to my senior prom, and was just getting ready to graduate. i was so ready to graduate from kahuku high school and go onto college...

5 years ago i was 23. i was living down the street from my parents, taking a year off from college to make money and working full time at surf n sea in haleiwa. it was fun, surfing, talking about the surf and selling the surf to tourists. i also got to meet wayne brady, david hasselhoff, christine taylor, drew barrymore and bryan brown from cocktail.

3 years ago i was 25. i was living in orem and was packing up my things to move back to laie to go back and finish school at byu hawaii. little did i now that things just worn't going to work out the way that i planned and i would be moving back to utah at christmas.

1 year ago i was 27. i was anxiously waiting to go back to hawaii... for vacation... had just started a new job that i love... 4 days out of 5... |stress| and would be getting married in a few months to kasey. great decision... i'm excited to grow old with this guy... s-l-o-w-l-y.

so far this year i have been really cold. i am ready for summer to be here and tan my legs. i want to cry everytime i look at them. kasey and i have been trying to finish the house, but that is never ending. one of my christmas presents this year will be a finished house though.

today i woke up by myself(mind you i wrote this post on saturday and forgot to publish it). kasey is off framing a garage for his customer and i was able to sleep in for the first time in months. i cleaned the house, did laundry, still searching out that smell... ate some malto meal with tons of brown sugar and, yes ginger, contemplated making mochi. now what movie to watch???

this year my goal is to get kasey surfing, jord to ride her bike with out training wheels, finish the house, not get so cranky, sleep better, relax more, finish more books then magazines, be a better friend, a better wife and learn from my mother.

anyone that needs a post and would like to do this one, its fun...
i'm not going to tag anyone... its a free-bee... go for it!

my kids were so in to mochi when we got back and we tried to make some here in Utah. It didn't turn out right maybe because of the dry air or something anyways I crave it all the time but refuse to give in unless we are back in Hawaii.
