My Life by the Numbers........

As I was driving to work a few weeks back my poor old car turned 200,000 miles.   So as I was saying my 9 Hail Mary's and 1 Our Father and asking God to let my poor old Billie (Yes I name my vehicles) to make it until I graduate from Nursing School it got me thinking about the day I drove it off the lot when the odometer had exactly 23 miles on it, most of them from me test driving it.  That  lead me to think about all the changes my life has gone trough since I bought Billie nine years ago, especially the unexpected and life changing events my life has gone through in the last four years.  So here it is, for the official record, my life by the numbers:
