What I did on my last 7 March Firsts

On March 1st my friend Christina did a great blog list of what she was doing on March 1st for the last 5 years. She is participating in the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) challenge to post a list every day in March. I’m not going to do that but I thought I would tell you what I was doing on March 1st for the last several years. It is always surprising to me how time goes by and how my life and the lives of my friends and family change.

2002 – I was working at Sun and spent the day in an all day managers’ meeting.

2003 – Duke and I ordered our wedding invitations.

2004 – I had a piano lesson and and worked all day at Sun then went birthday shopping for Duke.

2005 – I worked at Sun all day and was busy studying for my CFP exam. My March 2005 blog entries are here.

2006 – I was working at Intuit and went out to dinner with Bonnie, Bill and Duke to celebrate Duke’s and Bill’s birthdays. My March 2006 blog entries are here.

2007 – I was retired, I picked up Aidan at the baby-sitter’s and went with Shan to his 6 month check up. My March 2007 blog entries are here.

2008 – Last Saturday the 1st of March I was in the Bay Area visiting. I had breakfast with one friend, lunch with other friends and dinner with Shan, Aidan, Valerie and Vicky.

As you can see I’ve been blogging for more than three years but you may wonder how I know what I was doing on March 1, 2002 . Like Christina I also have a Journal 10+  . I don’t always get around to writing in it every day but I do enjoy looking back to see how my life is changing.

One thought on “What I did on my last 7 March Firsts”

  1. Isn’t it amazing how much changes. I remember when I first got that journal and couldn’t wait until future years to see how things had changed, blink, and now it’s five years later. Great post!
