reminiscing with you is like trying to teach my dogs to do laundry
There are tons of people on my facebook page who I know from high school and I really don't remember them well at all. To be fair though, I did pull away from most of my friends at the end of my junior year when I fell for Andrew's deadbeat dad, the sailor. And then I finished my credits halfway through my senior year so I didn't even go the last semester.
I had a conversation with a few friends from high school and it went something like this:
Friend 1: Do any of you remember Gina Fakename from high school?
Friend 2: Hmmm...is that her married name?
Friend 3: I think her maiden name is Blahblahblah.These are people MY age, who have gone through some amazing life experiences. We have all done a LOT since 1991 when we would have last thought about a girl who lived on bus route 39. But they remember things like bus routes and whatnot.
Friend 1: Oh yes---she lived on the corner across from bus route 39.
Friend 2: Oh yeah, we never liked her.
So it's just me? I'm 35 and my memory only holds tiny bits and pieces? Is this normal?
I have this picture from 8th grade trip for some class trip with three good friends of mine (Hi Holly!!!) and I have no recollection of that day at all.
So with that being said...how long is it before I forget other memories?
I just need to take more pictures.
And write more.
And get my scrapbooks together.
I have so many moments I don't want to forget.....
like this one:
I just don't want to lose the important moments. I feel like I need to get them all written down or they will get lost. It has been just Andrew and I for the last 15 years (mostly) so once I die, the memories of when Andrew was little are GONE. GONE!!!! It's depressing.
