No pictures for this post...just words for your online entertainment. Before I get into what the title means, I need to give you some background information. Yesterday HH was off. We spent it running errands, getting a quad up and running, and making out like teenagers. Too much information, I know, but you need this info for later. Trust me. So, during one of my errands I heard someone say "If you could change one thing in/about your life, what would it be." I spent the rest of the day contemplating this question. The thing that instantly came to my mind was my first marriage. It lasted 11 miserable years. However, then I would not have Stephanie and Maddi. I would take 20 miserable years so just to have them in my life. SO, obviously the marriage couldn't count. Laying in bed last night, I still couldn't come up with anything that I would change. Am I living in a fantasy world? Quite possibly. OR, it could be that life was going so fantastic at that moment that nothing popped into my head. Because at midnight, I sure came up with stuff. Quickly. Fantasyland vanished, and Realityworld presented itself. Dale was up sick...my first thought was the flu. Now mind you I wasn't thinking of the poor guy asking him if he needed assistance...I was thinking of myself, and how I was going to get the flu now because I had been making out with him all day. And then I started thinking about all the plans this weekend that would be ruined. So that is when I came up with a list of what I would change.
1. I would change that my family is constantly getting sick. Living in the Platt Petri Dish is not fun. I get one person well, and the next one goes down.
2. I would change my sleep habits. I wish I didn't require so much sleep to be a good mom. Trust me on this one. I am not such a patient person when I get less than 7 hours. Ask my family.
3. I would change zero period. I think high schools should start later than they do. Teenagers shouldn't be getting up at 5 am to go to school. Haven't the school districts seen the studies??? Teens aren't actually awake until noon.
The good news is this...HH had food poisoning, not the flu. So my mini crisis has been adverted. Still, I would change those three things. Nothing like a little drama to make me take off my rose colored glasses, huh?
