Looking Back

It's not very often that I make a layout without a photo, but when I found this list my mom had typed on the day she retired, I knew it needed to be kept. It lists the places and dates of her employment and salary too.
Did you notice what her salary was for her first job?  77¢ an hour, 6 days a week. I can also tell by looking at the list that the 4 months she was unemployed in 1954 was when my dad was transferred to San Francisco while he was in the Navy and they moved up there, and that she quit work in October 1963 because I was due 2 months later.
I'm so glad I found this list a few years ago and thought to keep it. My mom's memory isn't too good anymore and even though she remembers some of the places she worked, there is no way now that she could go back and write it all down.
Preserving history and getting to play with pretty papers too...pretty much awesome!

I've never made a layout with out a photo, this gives me an idea to try for some memorabilia I have.
