Today is the 28th anniversary of moving my 26 year old New York self to San Diego.
I have lived longer here than in my home state of New York. They say once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker. I still have a loud, say what I think personality, drive fast and talk fast. As years pass, and life experience change a person, I have mellowed a little. It has been an interesting 28 years with sad times, happy times (my wedding anniversary of April 11th) and moments I sometimes wish never happened, like the day my daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 18 months. I’ll never forget February 10th, 1993. Then there is the anniversary of her bone marrow transplant, May 30th, 1995. That day is an anniversary to always celebrate, and for a quite a few years we went to Disneyland to acknowledge her surviving that disease and all the pain and suffering our entire family experienced. Right now, she is upstairs blasting music in her room. She turns seventeen next month. Let’s raise a glass of bubbly to that one!
