The challenge for yesterday for Blog Every Day in May was ‘what do you miss?’ I missed it because I worked from midnight Saturday night till 8:30 Sunday morning then picked up my brother and we did Mothers Day things all day yesterday. It was a really good day for us all I think! Cooking out by the river with the family and the furkids. Good day all around! But on to playing catch-up again.
I could really make this post deep and talk about people, loved ones, or lost pets I’ll always miss. I do miss those and they are totally worthy to be in this post, however, I kinda just want to talk about the carefree years for a minute. Can we do that? Just travel back to the teenage and young adult years with me for a moment.
What the crap were we thinking?! I had a solid job and didn’t save a dime. I didn’t have any responsibilities other than school, work, and whatever sports I was playing at the time and I couldn’t even manage to manage my money any better than I did? Shame, for shame! (as my lovely niece diva would say).
So what do I really miss besides the possible money saved during that time? I miss the fact that I was always surrounded by friends, I miss the fact that we didn’t have hardly any responsibilities because being an adult with all the worry of bills and stress of life can really tire a girl out. I miss being able to be as spontaneous without feeling guilty.
If I could go back and slap myself, I would. I was a carefree idiot! But I had fun. Those memories and trials that I thought would really be the end of my little world are things I wouldn’t trade for the world.
And I leave you with the always entertaining Jenna Marbles video about hating being a grown up. Seems appropriate for a post like this. Enjoy!
