Yet Another Meme Tag

Another Meme tag (courtesy Lory):

What were you doing ten years ago?
Let’s see, I’d just had my son right before Christmas.  Since hubby was self-employed and I was his secretary, my maternity leave lasted a whole two weeks, so I was back to work and very sleep deprived.  My son spent most of the first year of his life coming to work with me.  We were broke although hubby had one a big case earlier in the year and the worst of our debts had been paid, so we were okay.  My stepson was being a total pain in the butt.  And I wasn’t writing.  It was not something I was interested in.  That is about all I can remember.  Mostly getting used to being married and having a child.

What were you doing one year ago?
Ummm…..waiting.  I had three fulls out with agents and I was waiting.  Golly, that sounds a lot like what I’m doing now.  I know after a very productive writing year in 2004 I was really looking forward to a super writing year.
