ok...this should be interesting....


lost a bunch of weight
spent a lot of money preparing for a wedding (by myself might I add, I had to pay for the whole thing because "cheapo" refused to help)
married an asshole (my ex-husband)
moved out of my parent's house for the very first time
was attending college full-time, while working 2 jobs (waitressing & a receptionist/billing clerk at a chiropractic office)...while jerkoff was barely working at all. >:(


still attending school and working 2 jobs, but I changed my waitressing job to another restaurant
realizing what a jerk I was married to, as I was being very much mentally/emotionally abused by him
horrible events of 9/11
began gaining weight due to stress :-\\


met Chris (who was there for me all the time, during a very emotional and stressful time in my life)
wised up and filed for a divorce (it went through the same year)
moved back in with my parents for the time being
went down to South Carolina to visit my relatives
still waiting tables...I had quit my other job, and took a break from school (couldn't handle it emotionally/mentally)
got my first tattoo (hurt like hell, but I love it)
stared regaining my self-worth


still dating Chris, exclusively
introduced Chris to family/friends...started getting back into the swing of things
Chris proposed to me atop of Mt. Washington (at a lookout, with the great view of the city of Pittsburgh...very romantic ;))
still waiting tables
got our tongues pierced
moved in with Chris for a few months.
quit my job


Got married in January
moved to a little apartment about an hour away from my parents
started getting my side business together and running
moved once again from the apartment, to a duplex out in a little country town
In March, my nephew Vaughn moved in with us as we made the decision to raise him together


Discovered Inthe00's in January of this year...went crazy posting! ;)
Continued progressing with my side business, as I remained a stay at home "mom".
Found out that our landlord was selling the duplex that we were living in, but wanted WAY more than what we could we started looking for another place to live.
Decided to attempt to purchase a house, instead of continue renting.
Found a house rather quickly, that was perfect for us....went through many ordeals...BUT, obtained the house and moved in May.
Started fixing things/decorating, etc. in our new home.

2006 I am...still posting Inthe00's...still decorating and loving our home....still working at my business....this year will be 2 years that we have been raising Vaughn (and we have discovered the many ups and downs of parenting)....we are planning a trip this summer (just Chris and I) to go down south to visit my relatives for about 10 hoping to get back and finally finish school...but that won't be until Vaughn enters kindergarten.
