Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Where Were You in 2000?

Randy Seaver has a new challenge for us on this week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun on Genea-Musings:

1)  Do you recall what you were doing in 2000?  Family, school, work, hobbies, technology, genealogy, vacations, etc?  If this doesn’t work for you, what about your parents?

In 2000, I was well into my teaching career, having spent ten years at Vineyard Junior High School in Alta Loma, California as part of the Special Education Department. I was one of two resource specialists and mostly taught Language Arts to RSP and Special Day Class students in 7th grade.  I had taught at other schools, but Vineyard was brand new in September 2000 and I was fortunate to be on the first staff of a great school. I still had ten more years to go until retirement, though!

I felt quite lucky to live only three miles from my workplace because Dave had to commute 55 miles each way to his office, which overlooked Los Angeles Airport. He was up at 3:30 a.m., gone by 4:30 and at work by 6:00.

I don’t remember where we went on vacation that year, but it was probably a driving vacation visiting national park sites in the West. We loved seeing the parks and the historic sites and, by 2000, had been collecting the National Park Service stickers and stamps for years.

For the Christmas holidays, my mom came out from New Jersey, which she did every year, and we all spent the day with Dave’s family, who all lived nearby.

There was nothing else memorable that happened that year so I don’t have much else to add to this post.

Thank you, Randy, for this week’s challenge. 🙂
