So I have had this idea for a little while running around in my head.
It is called Memory Monday.
It really is simple. I will share with you one memory or other and then if you want you can create a post on your blog and we can all travel down memory lane together. I am even going to try to figure out that Mr. Linky Thingy.
No matter how old you are life has had to change a tad. I mean when I think back there use to be a time where there was no Internet, no Cell Phones, and Apple was a dying company. Gas was less than a dollar and Johnny Dep was on "21 Jump Street."
There is just something about tripping down memory lane that brings a smile to your lips.
For my first post, I was thinking where should I start and it occurred to me I should start where my memory begins.
My very earliest memory has to be before I started school and I am standing in the house my parents are building.
What I know is we moved into that house before I started kindergarten. So I must be four years old.
I am standing in the front room my back against the banister because my mom doesn't want my brother and I running around.
Clearly, I can see myself standing next to my little towhead brother. We are in our pj's, with bare feet and the floor is still plywood waiting for carpet. My pajamas are a gown and I will swear to you a bright pink, but I will also tell you that my brother is wearing ET pajamas, I know that ET hasn't been released to the movie theaters so I know this is wrong.
That is all I remember. It is a memory with fuzzy edges and barely there. I don't remember when the house was completed or when we even moved.
However, I do remember shortly after we moved in while my dad was at work my mom, brother and I enjoyed a wicked mud bath in the unfinished backyard.
As I type a movie reel of pictures is flashing through my mind. Pictures of me coming home from school, the phone in the front room, the curtains, pumpkins on the porch, and Santa at Christmas.
It is strange to think of myself as a little girl in pink pajamas.
Who wants to play along?
What is your very first memory?
