I am currently a kept woman with two teenagers and married to my sweetheart of 20+ years. I am very happy and loving life.
Shortly after high school I left my cushy job at Lynn's Hallmark Shop at Western Hills Mall to work in a Billy Bob the Bear suit at Showbiz Pizza in Midfield. After getting in touch with my inner grizzly, I got a real job at University Hospital in the Business Office. With a much improved income I was able to marry that boyfriend of mine some of you may remember, Jeff Huguley (1984).
I worked at University Hospital for seven years then left when we had our first child (1991). Three years later we added a second child (1994). I've been a stay at home Mom ever since and have found this to be a really good investment for my feeble, senile years when they will be taking care of me.
We lived in the Rock Creek community for many years but moved from there in 1998 after the F5 tornado came through. (That's a whole other story!) From there we moved to Vance, even though we have nothing to do with the Mercedes Plant. We've been here for the last 10 years, exactly 20 miles smack dab between the Bessemer and Tuscaloosa Wal-Marts.
And that is what I have been up to for 25 years. I'm at a really happy, good place to be in my life and just overflowing with exciting possibilities for the future. Someone get me some shades!
How wonderful to hear from you after 6 months. I just figured I had incorrectly sent the message. Tech challenged and poor eyesight combined with big sausage fingers make for adventurous typing. Good to hear from you! I have my 82 shirt too! I might could get it over my head.
saw where it is your b'day tomorrow - -wanted to say early HBD as I'm off tomorrow for a 11 trip to Dubai for work. Think it will be cool, but long ways away from home/family and my guess is I will be working much to much to enjoy.
Thanks for the encouragement. I love teaching, but it can be unnerving most of the time. I don't dress up for class, but i might try that. I can still tell you're a "spark plug". Keep on firing away.
We have 2 girls 20 & 16. Life's good. I'll talk to leigh ann and tell her to look you up on this sight.
NEIGHBOR! Finally you respond!! I'm back on dialup for another day, and I knowwwww how slowwwwww it is. lol :D You can't possibly be more boring than I. Seriously. I've done a complete turnaround since we last saw each other. Any time you want to get together, I'm free (for right now anyhoo). Tomorrow we have court, and tonight I'm working an auction but otherwise, nada going on. I'd LOVE to see you, as you well know you were my bestest BFF forevermore. :D :D My daughter saw your pictures in the annuals yesterday and thought you were gorgeous. I told her you still looked good (she's concerned about my graduating class for some reason). :D And your hair is still the envy of chicks everywhere this side of the Mason/Dixon. Feel free to call me at 541-4088 or 802-1542. I'm charging 541 right now so yeah. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear what's going on with you, and am so happy you and Jeff are still happy and together! :D
What a fantastic story Leigh Ann. And I still have my class of 82 T shirt, too. I think my will still fit. I would certainly have considered having the get together at the Midfield Brookwood game if I'd known of your connection there. But yeah, we'll do something else soon and I'll make sure it's a time and place when you can be there. Tell Jeff I said hi.
Hey Leigh Ann! I always enjoyed any class I had with you because you just had a way to keep the whole class sharing the fun you created. Glad you're still doing well. I'm having junior moments but can't even tell you when the last one really was!
