Q&A part deux

I'm making my way back to the land of the living. Which means I'm coughing my face off at work today versus sleeping in a Lortab induces haze of goodness. The past few days I have not ventured out of bed until at least noon and it has been fantastic despite feeling like total crap. You know, cuz I heart sleep.

I did not forget about the Q/A post I did last week I think it was and today is brought to you by the fabulous who wants to know:

I'd like to know...if you could take back or change one thing in your life/past what would it be?
Also, if you could re-live one great moment, what would it be?

This was a tough one for me because I'm a big believer that everything happens for a reason. That said I would probably CHANGE 1999. Yep, the entire year. 1999 for me started out ending a long term relationship that I had thought would have lead to marriage. He was the love of my college life and after college our lives just took separate directions. Now I would not take back the break up because it eventually lead me to Joe but I kissed a lot of frogs in 1999 to get to eventually get to that prince. 1999 was labeled as "The year I forgot I was no longer in college" Yeah, I had some fun partying with sorority sisters who were still in school but trying to go to work in the big kid world with a college kid hangover was NO fun. There were fun "mistakes" like that random trip to Windsor that had me sleeping in a car in a parking garage with a boyfriend and his alcoholic friends because we did not book a hotel room....ahhh the good old days. WAIT, I mean MAN was I immature.

Anyways, 1999 was a year of bad choices that even though I came out of them okay I could have done without a few of them.

If I could relive any one great moment......I would probably have to go with the first few months of Pierce's life. I was "lucky" enough to be blessed with PPD after Pierce was born and it took me a good month or so to really fall in love with my baby. Isn't that awful? Instead of marveling in the beauty of my new baby I spent a lot of time crying and wanting him to be held by anyone but me. I know that he wont ever know this (unless I choose to tell him) but I really wish I had been one to just be magically overwhelmed with everything related to my newborn. That said....he is pretty darn cool now.

6 people fed my need for attention:


I would love to re-do those months after OJ was born....I was a mess and I didn't immediately fall in love with him, either. I wish I had. I'm trying hard to make up for lost time...and I hope he never feels the sadness of what was his first few months. :( I wasn't diagnosed with anything like PPD, I didn't even contemplate that was the issue. I just blamed Hubby and left it at that. :)


Great post! I too believe everything happens for a reason, but I would so change a lot of things that I did! Just like you mentioned! Also, it sucks that you had PPD, but I'm glad that you stuck through it and things are better now!


Wow, I have a year like your 1999, too...but it started in April 1996 and went until about April 1997. Yikes! But I really believe that year made me into the person I am...and I learned an awful lot about myself through those bad choices. So I guess I wouldn't erase it completely. Great post!

Great answer to a tough question. I don't know how I would answer that one.

Regrets - I've had a few...

Glad you got over the PPD. Pierce seems like a pretty amazing little fella.

Also glad to hear you are on the road to recovery.


I was lucky not to have PPD!! I couldn't let go of her, but I also let other people hold her. I wasn't the overbearing new mom.

Glad your feeling better..I want to hurt my hubby with all the coughing his doing. He's been sick for a week!! Oh will he get better????

Please stop by I'm having a giveaway!

This is funny you mention 1999, because the first half of that year I would do all over again. Lots of frog kissing over here too, plus that semester in college was the semester that cost me graduating with honors- d'oh! The second half is when I met my husband- so that part I wouldn't change!
