A Blast From My Past
I retyped them to make them easier to read. I cut out sections that I thought would be of interest.
I will give a little recap at the end to help you understand.
Thanks for reading along and joining me in my life. As it was or at least the way I saw it to be. I tried to make as few changes as possible.
I lost Cami's gift notebook. But I found this one for now.Time is 12:30. We originally got up at 9:30. We got recycling out+trash.I parted with an old fan, table metal from her (fathers) and punching bag. I had never used. I cleaned up cat liter in front to absorb oil(gas) jeep was. I threw out one fish tin litter box.We made love after that and then we were finished. We both just got a shower.Billy called said he got our Christmas card and he was getting something for us.We have to plan what where going to say.(any suggestions)I use to work 2 jobs no time.Busy coming and going.Now I'm down to one job don't overtime/cami same. Our hours are different. I work mostly nights.She works earlier than me.3:30 to 12:00. We use one car.I drop her off. That means most of our time is spent late night or when ever we get up.(no schedule)We sleep late often exhausted.
Cami is my fiance and later became my wife on June 23, 2001 a year later. I lost a gift book which didn't surprise me any. I am still misplacing things and hoping they will all turn up one day.I use to put the time in to record how my day unfolded. It looks like we slept a little later than usual. It was Tuesday that is when our trash day was. I had things I liked and parted with some stuff I no longer needed. They came from her fathers who passed away years later. I had an old mail truck that leaked oil.I use to drive and work my own business a food shopping service called Shop For U. We always made time for each other. My brother Billy called and we would try to make plans to get together. It was very difficult. Our schedules were opposite. Cami and I had a busy life. Years later time became less and less to see each other instead of more and more. My own family grew apart. I thought if you worked all you can when you are younger you could retire early. I worked two jobs. There was never enough time. My work never had overtime. I always worked nights and my wife worked earlier than me. Her hours had changed and so have mine. Today she works 2:30 to 10:00 and I work 4:45 to 11:00. We had only one car where now we have two. Most of our time was spent after work late night to early morning talking and playing catch up. We would wake up tired. Now we sleep more and spend our mornings together and late night talks as well. We wake up refreshed and ready to start our day.
I tried to fill in the gaps. How things have changed from the year 2000 to 2020. That may be only twenty years. To me it was like yesterday. Thank you for reading and sharing part of my life in a time that I lived it.
DREAM ON (author) on December 13, 2020:
John Hansen The sad thing is I could and probably put so much more. Only certain things come to mind. It was what I was feeling and thinking. Now I tried a new writing. i don't think I have changed my thought process for good or bad. The good thing is that some how it survived the years. It could of been easily ruined over many different moves. It brings back so many good memories. I am happy you got to see another part of me. Writing is something I have always enjoyed and had the passion for but lacked the skills and the know how. I do it anyway. Have a great day.

Thank you for sharing this Dream On. It was very interesting to read a day in your life from twenty years ago, It does go so fast and seems like just yesterday to me as well.
