20 years ago I...was 14 years old and going through my most goofy period of life. My mom made me play on all my brother's sports teams so she didn't have to travel to two different games. I was in the 8th grade and lived in Northboro, MA
10 years ago I...was 24, married and recently moved back to Northboro, MA from Rexburg, Idaho. I had Kayla and Kaleb and Steve was working for Domino's Pizza still.
5 years ago I was...29 and the mother of four children. We were living in Laconia, Nh and Steve was in his 5th year as a police officer. Our house was only 880 sq. feet and in need of lots of repair. We were pretty squished with 6 people. A new house was on the horizon....yay!
1 year ago I...was spending a lot of time in the hospital with Ben and just started my Thai Kickboxing class. Steve was approaching his 10th year with the Laconia Police Department and Kayla had entered the Middle School - YIKES!!
So far this year I...have been to the temple once, played 4 games of scrabble with my parents, played 2 games of basketball with the men's league at our church and helped shovel the driveway 22 times - WOW!
Tomorrow I...will head back to Gilford with my girls after spending two days with my parents, say goodbye to Ben as he heads to Maine with my good friend Becky Billin, try to make it to my Thai class at 6pm and kiss Kaleb and Steve after not seeing them since Monday afternoon.
In the next year I shall...be better about my temple attendance, help my daughter get ahead with her personal progress, continue my blogging, laugh more and become debt free. (again)
I TAG PAULA, MARIA AND LAURABETH

When did you meet? August of 1992 at (formally known as) Ricks College. Steve was actually my Family Home Evening Brother.
How long did you date before getting married? We dated from October of 1992 - June of 1993
Where did you get married? Washington DC Temple
Who said I love you first? Steve did
Who cooks more? I do but according to him he thinks he makes the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. (I asked Stevie who is sitting next to me and she says mine are better - although his are pretty decent)
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Depending on the set up of the room, I pick whatever side is closer to Ben since he often needs assistance at night.
Who is taller? Definitely Steve. He's 6'3 and I'm 5'7.
How old is he? Old....he's going to be 37 this April.
Who drives? Usually him, sometimes if I want to razz him up I'll hop in the driver seat. He doesn't like that too much.
Who proposed? Steve did - I could never imagine me being the one to do it - wierd.
Who wears the pants? Both of us. Sundays I usually wear skirts or dresses though. (hee,hee)
Who kissed first? I am not a forward person so again this one goes to my husband. Call me old fashioned.
How many siblings? 3 - 2 sisters and 1 brother
Who does the laundry? Definitely me - his idea of laundry is to see how much he can stuff into the machine no matter what color. A little scary.

with you because there is no where else to cool down.
Love is when your Aunt sends you a lifetime supply
of chapsticks so that your lips will stay kissable.
(Thanks Aunt Suzanne!)
Love is when mom will let you lay with Ben until
you fall asleep because sometimes you get lonely.

This was the night of the storm, we lost power as you can see. It happened twice during the day. The first time was around lunch for about 1 hour and the second was at dinner time. Thankfully I had just finished baking my pizza so our food was nice and hot. The power did not return until 12am which meant that I had to stay up and play nurse to Ben. Because the power was off, the pulse oximeter wasn't working. That means that we would not be able to tell if something went wrong with Ben while asleep. I called the power company to get an estimate and they were pretty accurate as they had told me the power should be back by midnight. Time to look into getting a generator.

The poor trampoline is almost completely buried in snow

This picture was taken today around 10am. You can see that his urine still has blood in it. We will continue to monitor it.
