46 years old today.

On the CD player: Like a Rock, by Bob Seeger.

Twenty years, now.
Where’d they go?
Twenty years, I don’t know.
I sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they’ve gone.

Twenty years ago, I was
US Army veteran
dating an old friend from my Army days
graduating from Community College
living in Plaza Apartments in Sierra Vista, AZ
working for ManTech, developing training materials for the US Army
moving to Flagstaff, AZ to attend NAU
wearing braces
mother of three cats (Cookie, Esther and Lady M)
driving a 1985 Ford Escort I bought because her stripe matched my blue shoes
very blonde
in pretty good shape (running 5 miles a day)

Twenty Years Later, I am
US Army veteran
a college graduate
living in my own home in Las Vegas, NV
writing a novel
working for an architect
mother of two cats (Pumpkin and Jax) and a dog (Bailey)
driving a 2002 Cadillac STS
sorta dark blonde
eh….I walk the dog 3-4 miles a day

What a difference a coupla decades makes!!!

In twenty years I want to be

a US Army veteran
finished with grad school
living in one of many homes I own
a successful author
mother to many cats and dogs
driving something big and cushy and fast and cute
have hair and teeth
able to walk 3-4 miles a day
