One moment...

It's funny how life can take us on such a different path than the one we imagined as kids.  Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade my current life for anything!  I love being a wife and a mother. I like owning my own home and having a job with flexible hours.  There are times though, that I do wonder what my life would be like if I had done ONE thing different.  

That one thing would be my decision not to go to college.  

I got married.  We bought a house.  We got a cat.  We had a kid.  We got 2 bigger rigs to hold our growing family.  We got a dog.  We had another kid.  I had to keep working.  Going back to school was not an option.

What if I had decided to go to college instead of taking that year off?  Would I be as happy in life as I am now?  Would I have gotten married?  Would we have kids?  Would we have 3 cats and a dog?  What would life be like if I could go back and change that one decision?

All of this I do not and will not know because of that ONE thing I didn't do.  And I am OK with that.
