I saw this blog post yesterday. The author, Derek, links back to blog posts that he has written on March 1st for the past decade. I haven't been blogging long enough to do that, nor am I a reliable enough blogger to be able to link back to past posts the way he did but it got me thinking about creating something similar. I do keep detailed calendar records and used that archive to note the following significant things about March 2nd in my life.
2003: Spent a quiet day at home (I was living with my Mom and Step-Dad in Salt Lake City at the time) in preparation for the following day which was my first 8-hour work day since completing chemotherapy in December 2002.
2004: Sat in a room at St. Mark's Hospital and did clinical chart audits from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
2005: Moved into my apartment in Queen Anne (Seattle) after a few days at my brother's house in Port Orchard and one night on the dining room floor under moving blankets. You can read more here.
2006: Mom and Rick (Step-Dad) made their first trip to Seattle since my arrival so that Mom and I could throw a baby shower for Kristen (my sister-in-law). We had dinner at one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Buckley's.
2007: My little brother Jimmy was in town visiting from Salt Lake City.
2008: Don and I returned from a weekend trip to Cannon Beach, Oregon to celebrate my 5 year cancer-free anniversary. You can read about it here. You can see the pictures here. I blogged about my first 3 years in Seattle (complete with chart) here.
2009: Spent the day at work but was barely able to walk thanks to sore muscles from hiking the Dungeness Spit the day before. You can see pictures here.
2010: Spent the day at work and then had yummy crepes and wine at Citizen with Don in the evening.
Don't know what today will bring, we shall see. :-D
