Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing is from well Sunday Stealing.

Then: August 1999

1. Age: 35

2. Romantic Status: Married

3. Occupation: Home Duties!

4. Fun night out: I can't think of any work dinners or anything we went to. Actually we went on a plane to Sydney with the two little girls and stayed in a very nice hotel.

5. My BFFs: (best friends forever, I didn't know that) my husband

6. I spent way too much time: running up and down the road to school, it was fun though I got to see turtles

7. I spent not enough time: Our house of 16 years sold the next month, so I was doing all the right things. If I went back I would suggest I should have enjoyed the boredom and everything going well and left it like that perhaps? I think my husband's work made it like the calm in the storm.

8. I wanted to be when I grew up: just what I was.

9. Biggest concern: my husband's work. We got offered work in another city on settlement day.

10. What my biggest concern should have been: I think that was enough. It troubled me for three years.

11. Where did I live: in a mill town.

12. Dumbest thing I did that year: take on the garden before settlement day.

13. If I could go back now and talk to myself I would say:

14. Picture of me then: we had a family photo done, my expression on my face looked different.

Now: August 2009

1. Age: 45

2. Romantic Status: Married

3. Occupation: Stay At Home Mum

4. Fun night out: I bought a new house so I could do that, but it hasn't happened yet.

5. My BFFs: my husband

6. I spend way too much time: I can't say the computer, as it hasn't been here for months until very recently

7. I spend not enough time: washing clothes

8. I want to be when I grow up: not sure

9. Biggest concern: if and when I think about it, my son passing English in a sequence if that is what's necessary to gain an ENTER score, which house to sell, if it will be soon enough, if I should stay in this area for ever

10. What my biggest concern should be: being responsible and what that is

11. Where do I live: in the mountains

12. Dumbest thing I have done this year: thought to live at the new house during winter, or through two terms of school. Though I suppose it has been good. As you know it didn't last long and the freezer and beds are still there. The sheets now have mildew and are being washed. I suppose if we were there they would have kept drier. Our cat had surgery, lots of things happened.

13. What I think I would say to myself in 10 years: Wow, that is a good one. I hope I am not still wishing to be back in 1999, like I have been. Though I got over moving from that house.


1. What do I miss most from 1999: playing in the garden with the kids. Since moving to the mountains, there have been little trees or privacy in the yard.

2. What do I miss least from 1999: my husband working for the private sector, though it was very fun. It took awhile to get used to driving past the building.

3. What have I accomplished in 10 years that I am most proud of: I love my 7 year old daughter.

4. What have I NOT accomplished in 10 years that I wish I had: had one more perhaps! Adjusted to my environment.

Hi, Linda,

I enjoyed reading this. Maybe I will copy this idea from you soon. <3

I don't like mildew, either. Things are prone to mildew in our climate, too. Hope you get it all out. Have you tried putting a little white vinegar in the rinse water?
Linda said…
Will do that, thanks Joyce.
