Day 16: What If's

Hmm, today is what if day. Let's find out what I go "what if" about. Some of the answers are obvious, some not so much.

The biggest what if moments often come from doing things I didn't care to do just because someone would not shut up one way or the other about it. Whether it was an attempt to get me to do something, or not to do something. 

What if I hadn't done what they were insistent that I do or not do just so they'd shut up and go away? What if I had given into the urge to beat them to death, hit them in the face with a baseball bat, er, excuse them from my life when it became clear what I wanted was not their concern?

Easy, I'd have spent less time wishing I had never had them in my life. That would be less time spent wanting to choke them, or move to my own planet.

What if I had given into the first instinct that told me to run, and not give someone the time of day instead of dating them? 

Same thing. The rest of the list is a rant, and so this ends here.

What are your what if's??

Remembering

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.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
