Time marches on...

While I was in El Paso earlier this week I took a drive by some of my past and found some huge changes.

I had been warned about my old middle school. Here she is...





Apparently Eastwood Middle School has not just been renovated but it's a completely new building than when I was there.

There was foundational problems or something like that with the first building. I've been told the details but my brain chooses not to remember anything but the biggest and most obvious one.

I also drove by my grandparent's house. They recently sold it and the new owners got cracking on their to do list immediately. I guess a two car driveway just wasn't enough parking space for the new owners...



They also have completely ripped out everything in the yard...





(I really hope today is NOT the day my grandma decides to look at my blog.)

In the same neighborhood is the house my parents bought the summer before I started high school. It looks pretty much the same...





It was fun seeing my old stomping grounds but aside from loved ones and great Mexican food, I wouldn't move back to El Paso even if you paid me a million dollars. Well, for a million I probably would.

I love going back to the city I grew up in and checking out what has changed. Brings back so many memories. Makes me miss my family a lot tho.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend pretty lady!! :)
