With everyone gone this weekend (Tom is hiking the Cascades in the rain with friends, and the kids are all living those independent lives that we’ve gone and fostered), I’ve had some glorious solitary time. I may be a people-oriented extrovert, but I sure love having large spans of time completely to myself.
One of the things I’ve done with my weekend so far was try to make a dent in my effort to digitize old photos. The problem with old photos is that they bring back old memories and when that happens you can just kiss productivity and speed good-bye because you end up not only finding the photos, but the old journals and scrapbooks that went with them!
To my daughters, who are both flirts -- you, um, come by it honestly:
None of these guys (except another Tom, to my right in the above photo) was a serious boyfriend. I was just a very flirtatious and huggy young lady! My daughters’ Facebook pages are filled with them being the same way!
I also found some great photos of family…
(I love that picture of my parents. Look! Mom is flirting with Dad!)
…and a few old boyfriends, both of them German! (I came pretty dang close to settling back in Germany at one point!)
Now I have to get back to my actual 53-year-old life, which means getting some work done, cleaning the house, doing laundry, and paying bills. Immersing myself back in the late 70’s and early 80’s was much more fun!
