13 Things in 13 Years 1993-2005
  1. 1993- It's my 21st Birthday, and I took my first trip to Mexico. I spent a month visiting the surrounding area of Mexico city in the state of Guerrero.
  2. 1994-My oldest daughter Marissa is born. I named her Marissa, because her name means "of the Sea", and I love the Ocean!
  3. 1995-I left CA to live in El Paso,TX. Don't ask me WHY, but if I had any regrets in my life, which I don't, but if I did, that would be one thing I would change!
  4. 1996-My Second trip to Mexico. I got to see the Pyramids.
  5. 1997-My dad passes away, we move to ABQ.
  6. 1998-Went to see the Balloon Fiesta in ABQ.
  7. 1999-We move to Phoenix.
  8. 2000-My son Joshua is born.
  9. 2001-We bought our house.
  10. 2002-My Mother got remarried.
  11. 2003-My second daughter Katelyn is born, and my son is diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
  12. 2004-I'm trying to learn about taking care of my son, while working full time, and taking care of a baby. This was probably my hardest year, so far!
  13. 2005-My son starts K! A very important day for me!We find out we could expect my 3rd daughter, Lindsay sometime in March of 2006. She was born in February!

Seems like you've had some challenges along the way. Even though difficult, I'm sure it made you a much stronger person. You should be proud of yourself!

Oh, Albuquerque. Home sweety home. That's quite a list. What a bummer on your son's diabetes. Poor little guy. My dad and my brother have it - my bro was diagnosed when he was 17.

A great idea for a list.
I didn't know Marissa meant of the sea.
My hubby has diabetes, but it's a recent change in his life.
Must be some work managing a small child with it - sending good vibes your way.
