What were you doing 10 years ago tonight?

This morning I was browsing through the blogs of note when I came across the blog Yes and Yes. The author posed the question of "What were you doing 10 years ago tonight?". As I was reading what she was doing 10 years ago, it made me remember my New Year's Eve 10 years ago. Remember 10 years ago when people thought the world would come to an end and computers would cease to function because we were moving from the 1900's into the 2000's.

I remember this evening because my husband had to work. In fact, practically everyone that works for the power company had to be in a substation that evening working, just in case the equipment and computers failed to handle moving into the year 2000. I hung out that evening with a group of power company wives. We ate, drank and were merry without our husbands. Later we all laughed at how the media had hyped up this moving to the year 2000 because of the stress and worry that it caused people.

So fellow bloggers, I pose the question to you, " What were you doing 10 years ago tonight?"?

Have a safe and happy New Year!


  1. Well I was getting ready to turn 20 and still in college. I can't believe that!! I was at a party with friends and I remember stopping at midnight waiting for everything to go dark. As I am typing this, I still can't believe that it has been 10 years. Happy New Year!

  2. Ten years ago, Cory and I were at The Cornhusker Hotel dancing the night away! Ten years later, we celebrated at the Children's Museum for Make Believe Midnight, but we had a blast!

    Hope you have a Happy New Year!

  3. You will have to check out my post to find out. We opened our eyes to make sure the world was still there and that was about it. It is hard to believe we are in a new decade! Have a great one!

  4. we were moving to MO from MI and I fell asleep and woke up in the year 2000... amazed that after all the hype, nothing happened! :) happy new year!

  5. I too was with out someone that evening, Joel and i were engaged-not married yet. But he was working at a sub, waiting for the worst! Do you remember the survival kits?

  6. Actually, I don't really remember! I tell you, this mommy brain is really something!
