Did you ever stop and think...'if I had my life to live over I would do this differently'. I have a lot of things I would do differently....I wouldnt have been in such a hurry to get married...I would have gone to college. But when your young you dont think of things to prepare you for the future because you always think you are going to be young. And when I think of when I was young ~ I can see that it just went by way too fast.
When I was in school it was a time when girls didnt really think of supporting themselves in the future. We had steady boyfriends who most of us planned to marry after school and it was his job to worry about the future. We gals didnt go to work back after we got married. We stayed home, cleaned the house, cooked, and talked endlessly on the phone with our girlfriends. When we started having babies we got to stay home and enjoy them. I could have really enjoyed that time if my husband hadnt been such a dork. But then he was always a dork.
I can remember one summer when the boys were small, I didnt have baby girl yet. Hubby was on steady afternoon turn. Everyday when he went to work the boys and I packed up and went to the pool and stayed all day. All of my gf's were there with their kids,so we sat around and talked all day and got tanned and watched the kids play. None of us worked, very few of us had any college education. It was a good time.
We had card club once a month and we always had a great time with that. We took turns having it at each others house every month, then after we got done playing cards we went out!! Sometimes we didnt even finish playing cards , we just went out. We did all kinds of different things...we went skating, we went bar hopping, whatever we did we all went and it was fun! It was just us gals...we were all friends.
I guess the only thing I would do differently is....get some education. I loved taking care of my kids, having fun with my friends. I never knew there would come a day when I had to take care of me. But I do it quite well....and also take care of Mom. And its a good life..I dont have hubby to fight with anymore....and its peaceful, and he and I are better friends than we were husband and wife. You know how they say ' it will all come out inthe wash'...I guess it does.
