My life, 4 years ago

During lunch, I was trolling through my Facebook page and found a note that I had posted (remember when we used to do surveys on Facebook and post them as notes?).  I looked at the date of April 2009 and thought it would be fun to post this on the blog today.  So without further ado, here is my life from 4 years ago….
