When I was a child, I imagined all the things I would do when I grew up. I suppose my vision of my adulthood wasn’t too far off.
I thought I would go to college and have my bestie, Susan, for a roomate. Nope, went to school, but stayed at home.
I always hoped to get married, but was so scared I would end up single and lonely. The boys I liked just wanted to be friends, but I did get married a whole lot earlier than even I thought I would.
I thought I stay in my hometown. Nope, did not accomplish that one.
I thought I would be a teacher. Yep, even though it was a little later than expected.
I thought I would have children, 50/50 on this one. I expected to have my own, but ended up adopting. I couldn’t love them more if I had birthed them.
I thought I would have children early. Ten years of tears waiting, but it finally happened when I was 36.
I thought I would drive a Corvette. LOL, dream on! A 2000 Honda Accord and a 2005 Town and Country is the reality.
I thought I would go to Hawaii. Not yet, but I am determined that WILL happen some day.
So, some things may have been later than I thought, but for the most part, I was right.
