Life In The Fast Lane | Part 5 | PTA and Parties


Knee Deep in Kids


Let The Good Times Roll

Moving right along in my Retro Series, the 90s and beyond were busy times for us here in Dysfunction Junction.

The economy (to us) was pretty good, and we were heavily involved in all the usual sorts of parenting activities involving the kiddos – in other words, we didn’t have a life.

To add to the adventure, the Hubster started his own business, and we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 1999.

Here’s just a sampling

Swimming lessons
Dance lessons
First Day of School
Soccer, Softball Lacrosse, Cross-Country
Overnight camp
Family Vacations
Driving Lessons

Occasionally I found time to par-tay (just to keep my sanity) no, I don’t drink a lot, but it seems that whenever I’m not the one taking the pictures, someone else is capturing me at my “best” !

We’ve celebrated some milestones, had some fun, gained a little weight, pulled out our hair, and obviously dyed it several different colors over the years!

I’ve had a lot of fun this week showing my readers who’s behind the computer screen in this Retro Series , sharing tidbits of wisdom, or hot-flashing, ranting, raving at times!

If you want to know even more about me OMG, keep checking my 101 Things About Me tab that I’ll keep adding to!

  1. That was such a great post series! I loved reading about your life, seeing your photos and sharing your journey so far! It was really neat seeing how you and your family have grown and reading the little bits of wisdom throughout. I read the 101 list earlier and loved it as well. I love your posts like this! Hopefully in 25 years I will still be blogging and can do a similar one of my own! And congrats on your wedding anniversaries! That is so amazing these days! I wish I knew more people that have stayed together and IN LOVE! ;) Thanks again for sharing! <3
