Well. The Monday after the reunion my husband Brad called me at work to let me know he had been laid off ! It has been a rough 7 months but we have survived. Thankfully my "seasonal position" turned into my being retained FULL TIME at Mollen - something that not too many people are asked to do - so I feel very proud of myself by showing them I was a hard, reliable and trustworthy employee. Brad has returned to work - thank goodness - but like the economy it will take awhile to get "turned around".
I had such a great time in Yakima for the reunion and discovered that there was so much more to do now than when I lived there and left in 1992 that I really do want to plan a trip again soon and hopefully reconnect with as many of you guys as possible.
1/19/14 - Wow - it is hard to believe we have been out of school for 35 years ! The old IKE may be gone but the memories live forever.....
Since I last updated I have had a change in careers. My former place of employment closed with no warning leaving me unemployed after 5 years of work. Fortunately I was able to hear of an interview and was hired within 6 days of losing my job.
I love my new job helping those wanting to continue their education and earn a degree so much so that I have been thinking of going back to school myself. It is never to late to earn your degree.
Became a great aunt to Titus Montgomery Brown in 2012 and lost my sister in June of 2013.
Brad and I will celebrate 17 years of marriage in October. We have our health and health insurance and feel blessed to celebrate these things.
12/6/14 - Wow another year almost gone. I lost my job as the Admission's Consultant 2 weeks after I had been there a year. I think I was pushed out but since losing that job I am much happier and under far less stress. The good thing was I was not out of work for long and am in training for my new job. I am excited for the opportunities it will allow.
Brad and I moved into a fantabulous new apartment in June after being in the same location for 18 years. I love our new surroundings and neighborhood.
I became an great aunt twice with the birth of Jesse Alan Thompson to my niece and Abigail Grace Brown to my nephew. She is Titus' little sister.
9/23/15 - While I am still with the company I was in training with on my last update my position itself has changed. I am now a Paralegal with Lexington Law. My field of expertise is solely in credit repair. Not much else has changed Brad and I will celebrate 18 years of marriage next month. I hope to get back to Yakima in the new year.
3/13/17 - Not a lot has changed. I am still with the Law firm. The main change has been the loss of my beloved mother in law Margie in Decemer 2015. It was a devastating blow to all who loved her. She had a fall in the home just before Thanksgiving and a brain bleed occurred and she slipped into a coma and passed. Brad and I will be married 20 years in October. Other than that life remains unchanged at The Nelson Penthouse.

School Story:

Had the BEST time at the reunion. Thanks to all of you who made me feel so welcome. I really enjoyed talking to those people whom I never had a chance to talk to in high school. Sometimes it takes a long time for good things to happen. It was so great to see those great people who were such a part of my life at that time...both in AND out of school.

While there are some great times that I can recall from school my favorite was the state bowling tournaments in Bothell especially senior year. Due to inclimate weather that prevented my mother from making the trip that year Lori Hopkins and I had the hotel room to ourselves. Imagine the look on Mr. Kring's face when he came to get us for dinner and the Selah High bowling team walked out with us. Lori Hartshorn, Laurie Hauser, Lori Hopkins and I taking the special "cough syrup" I had for my cold........we had such a blast!!!!!
