I Kinda Miss the Days When...
If I was being honest (and please forgive me ahead of time if I am being too honest for your tastes, but...) I kinda miss the days when...
I imagined I had bucket loads of patience.
I only had to worry about feeding one mouth.
I could work out at 4:30 am in the morning or 11 pm at night because I could count on catching up on sleep later.
I didn't pay $70 to fill up my gas tank.
"Quiet" was normal.
The floor hardly ever got dirty.
I stayed up late giggling with my House of Dreams roommates.
It didn't take as much effort to focus on metaphysical material.
A first kiss was something to lose sleep over.
I sang duets with my sister all the time.
Every possibility seemed possible.
Life seemed really difficult, but it really wasn't.
My bust line only needed a gentle reminder from my wire bra.
I could watch TV without worrying about what little ears might hear or little eyes might see or little mouths might repeat.
I was full of endless energy and adventurous ambition.
I had homework, late nights, early mornings, a work schedule, a piece-of-hud car, my eyes on about three different guys, loud music, a flat tummy, no money, no time, every excuse, and a little bit of self control.
This would be the part where I would interrupt myself with a big fat "BUT" (and not the one I seem to be toting around these days)...
Can I just wallow in a little reminiscing for a bit and kinda miss those days without the optimistic repercussions?
P.S. Feeling a little swap silly? Make sure to sign up for my first swap! Think Christmas ornaments.
