Starry, Starry Night

Sitting in the living room with my computer on my lap and my cat tangled in my crocheting next to me, I had a flashback memory. I should preface by saying that yes, I do deal/live with depression these days. I combat the mild attacks, when they come, by either sleeping or thinking about happy memories. So, today, when it hit as I was sitting as previously mentioned. I was trying to find a good memory to cheer me up. The tv is on, and Im watching Ice Wars. Suddenly, this Hallmark ad came on for the new illuminations ornaments. The man in the ad asked his kids to "wish on a star" and with that phrase, I had my memory!

About 3 years ago now (November 2002), my husband came to visit me in Connecticut. We had been dating for only about 2 days "officially", though we had been on the computer and phone every day for the last 2 months. (For those of you who dont know, my husband and I have known each other for 10 years, and dated in college before going our separate ways. We hooked up again in 2002) ANYWAY, a meteor shower was predicted one night during his stay, so we all (Ash, Steve, Andy, Me) set our alarms and got up at 230 am or so, made coffee and hot cocoa, threw a few sleeping bags on the back porch, lay down, and covered up with a couple down comforters. It was really cold, but we had a blast. The stars shot across the sky, jokes were told, the Yorkies burrowed into the blanket pile... Sitting here thinking about how fun that night was, I was also struck by how our lives have changed in 3 short years. Back then, none of the babies was more than a gleam in the eye. Now, we have Grace (2.5), Jackson (1.75), JAcob (-1 month), and Jaime (-5 months). Andy and I had just started dating, and we have been married for over a year....Andy had just started the navy, and now we are almost done with our enlistment. The memory cheered me, but also got me thinking...

What will happen in the NEXT 3 years?
