10 Greatest Accomplishments in My Life

[In chronological order, my take on Ten on Tuesday's prompt for today. Check out what others have done in their lives by clicking here.]

1. When I was 8, after three years on the swim team, finally getting a 6th place at a meet. This following three summers of competing without knowing how to dive.

2. Straight A’s my freshman year of college.

3. Ryan.

4. Sammy.

5. Luke.

6. Although it makes me management scum, capably handling the frenzy surrounding contract negotiations at The San Francisco Chronicle.

7. Throwing my mom a great 70th birthday party in Las Vegas.

8. Working (on the media and public relations side of things) to help keep reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams out of jail.

9. Quitting a job I was good at and that I enjoyed a great deal so I could stay home with the kids.

10. Not driving my husband Pete away. (Yet.)
