I was having a conversation with a friend the other day and we were trying to figure out when an event happened. She was telling me how she’d helped to move her son into his apartment and was trying to figure out when his lease was up. My first question was if it were cold out, the second was if she could remember if they were wearing masks.

So many times we have timelines that run like this. For example: I got a cat for the kids after their dad left. We can count how old the cat is by that time line event.
I have others like, before the divorce and after. Before the ex left and after. Before this person died or after s/he did.
Do you have these types of conversations too?
How do you sometimes refer to your life timelines?
Do you refer to them by the significant events that have happened in your life?
