What if I Had Seen the Future?

I met my SIL (sister in-law) in the dorms of USC. We became good friends and pledged the same sorority the following year. Who knew that we would go from being roommates...

to Sorority Sisters (this was a 70s party during the 90s-- so don't think I was old enough to be in college during the 70s)...

to sisters in-law...

to mommies-- each of us with two children the same exact age (only a couple months apart)...

I think that if I had known the future, I probably wouldn't have wasted my time getting my heart broken in college (twice--unless you count the gay ex-boyfriend heartbreak then it would be 3 times, oh and once more after college) and dated The Breadwinner instead. And then maybe I would have lost my virginity to The Breadwinner instead of the asshole dick jerk guy that I did lose it to. But then I think that if I hadn't dated the guys that broke my heart, then I wouldn't have known how good I truly have it. Because you know what? The Breadwinner truly is all that and a bag of chips (and so are my kids).

Have a good weekend everyone!

My best friend from high school (and to this day) were engaged for a little while (it didn't end up working out.) I still think about how nice it would be to have her as a SIL, too.

OMG, your wedding picture is gorgeous!

I often wish for a changed past, but who knows what it would have done to the future?

Cute pix!

I think you nailed it... you know how good you have it. Experiences (good or bad)always have value.
