Thursday Thirteen #22: Live Through This

* Header by Goofy Girl of Goofy Girl Designs

Thirteen Things I've Survived, Mostly Unscathed
  1. Starting over in a new country (and I didn't even speak the language!)
  2. Being forced (as a newly-minted teen) to move away from my friends in the city to live in the 'burbs.
  3. Death of a beloved childhood pet.
  4. Parents' divorce.
  5. Multiple break-ups with my first love.
  6. Death of a family member.
  7. Amway.
  8. Finally marrying my true love.
  9. Losing good friends because they didn't agree with how we got married.
  10. Being downsized due to restructuring.
  11. Firings (doing and being).
  12. Scary bosses, nasty coworkers, and other corporate evils.
  13. The late 80's and early 90's (although the jury is still out on whether I'll ever manage to not flinch when seeing 'vintage' fashions of that era).

re. #13 - it's scary isn't it that shoulder pads have come back - and today I saw someone wearing in leggings - in public! At an upscale mall no less!
