Hind Sight

Have you ever looked back at life and decided that if you had done things differently things would be different? I do it some days, and it's fun to come up with different outcomes like the choose your own adventure books. I mean thinking back about high school, college, marriages and kids can be interesting when you look at the choices that you made.

They say that you don't always get what you want because it's not what you need. That guy you dated all through high school, the one you wanted to marry, you broke up and led separate lives. The two of you thought you'd spend your lives together but it didn't work out that way. One day all you had were the memories of the time that you shared together.

It did work out, just not the way that you planned. You moved on with your life and they moved on with theirs. The choices you made along the way shaped each of you into functioning members of society. Maybe you even managed to be friends in the end, after many years of not speaking. That first love was amazing, and sad when it ended. It helped to make you who you are today. It is not to be under valued or written off lightly.

The time that you spend learning is usually the most fun you can remember having as you get older. Family is great, kids keep you young, or is it run you to an early grave? Either way once you have them you wouldn't trade them for the world and that's the only thing that counts.

When it comes to hindsight you always know what you should have done to make things turn out differently......or you know what you should have done to delay the final outcome. When it comes to life it's always best to learn from your past instead of dwelling on it. Save the hindsight for the choose your own adventure series that you write.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
