Time travel

I saw this on Ann Douglas’ blog (the Mother of All Blogs) and thought it was a nice way to introduce myself.

15 years ago today I would have been:
… in year one of my “practice” marriage
… living with my (now ex) in-laws, looking for an apartment
… just about to start my first job with the government (yikes, just realized that would have made me basically unemployed and homeless!)

10 years ago today I would have been:
… happily single and living in a rented room in a house with two other women
… in year 3 of my 6 year quest to get my degree in Communications by studying part-time
… planning my solo tour of Europe for later that summer
… about one month shy of meeting Beloved for the first time
… working for the government, resolving client enquiries and complaints

5 years ago today I would have been:
… just about to get my referral to the fertility clinic after 10 months of unsucessful TTC
… working in headquarters of the same government department managing a national program
… taking a night course in woodworking at the local college

1 year ago today I would have been:
… mommy to a two year old boy (thanks to IVF) and a one-week old boy (a wonderful surprise)
… a hormonal, sleep-deprived, post-partum disaster
… looking forward to a year of paid ‘vacation’ – being a mom in Canada rocks!

This year I am:
… blissfully happy mommy to a three year old and a one year old
… a communications advisor for the same department
… a little overwhelmed by being a working mommy

Today I:
… am at work and will get to it shortly
… will have a long evening with the boys as Beloved teaches tonight
… will probably order pizza for dinner

Next year I hope:
… to be a senior communications advisor
… to be registering my eldest for school
… to be thinking about what to do with my little “frosty” (frozen embryo)

In five years I hope:
… to have both boys in school full time
… that maybe there is a little girl in the picture somewhere
… to be independently wealthy — where is that lottery ticket of mine?
