Fourteen

My blog turns 14 today! Can you believe it? And can you believe that I actually remembered?

So many things have changed since I first started this blog, though my lack of techspertise isn’t one of them. I wanted to make a list comparing the changes, tried a couple of plug ins to no avail, and ended up with old fashioned HTML (with limited success). You have been warned.

Then

  • Married
  • Living in San Francisco
  • Owning now million dollar art deco apartment with walk in closets and view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the roof. No parking for 1966 Mustang convertible (paid off).
  • Both parents alive.
  • Making enough money to go to Europe every year, not worry about paying the mortgage, and able to buy art and books.

Now

  • Not
  • Living in the boonies
  • Renting hippie hovel with no closets, no insulation, and no counter space. Lots of parking for 2008 Fusion (still paying it off), though.
  • Both parents dead.
  • Constant fears of how to pay rent and bills. Can’t remember the last time I went on vacation. Let passport expire for the first time in my entire life since I hadn’t used it in 12 years and couldn’t afford the requisite $150.
  • Of course, constants in my life are cats (though not the same ones; John still has Jack, the last of the cats we had together) and my family, to whom I am closer and more grateful for than ever. It will be interesting to see what the next fourteen years bring.

    A YEAR AGO: Happy blogday to me!

    1. Thanks for the many entries of very interesting and very well written stories on your blog. I know things do not all work out the way we expect in life. Things change, people in our lives pass away and others leave or move away, there are many disappointments, but through it all if we also look at what we have and even how things would have turned out if all would have remained the same, perhaps we would consider ourselves lucky on how things are at this moment and time. You have many friends and family who love you and there are many get together with them that you enjoy so much.

    2. By the way Suzy, I’ve never met a strong person that had an easy pass, you are stronger today because of all the sad moments.

    3. Never a dull moment….life certainly has its ups and downs. One never knows what is around the next corner.

      Let’s hope that the next Fourteen has more ups than downs for you Suzy…..

      I always enjoy your Blog which is always interesting – no matter what you write about. What a shame we cannot find you a Sponsor for that book ‘Walking with Suzy ‘ it would do so well.
