Comment: My son, Ben, will be 19 (04/2006). He graduated this past June and is currently attending community college. My daughter, Sarah, just turned 17 and I'm hoping she graduates (06/2007).
I was laid off last January (2005) and have been upgrading my skills and adding to them.
Also, been creating stained glass, jewelry and beading. I've sold a few pieces, but mostly I give everything away, or donate to charity auctions.
Besides upgrading at school I've spent the year traveling. Nevada, Arizona, St. Louis, and winding up the year in New York at the Thanksgiving Macy's Day Parade. Was that ever fun! Now I have to concentrate on getting a job and rejoining the real world.
Favorite memory: My favorite memories from HS are anything choir related, anything involving Kristy Hill - especially the time she TP'd my locker which clued me into the fact she'd also TP'd my house the night before. Ski club. And Senior year. Molly Brown.
