You Get One Life Do Over; What Would It Be?

It would be one where I did not have to jump out of a second floor french window.

For those of you who have come to the party late, both my hip joints have been replaced, one revised once and the other revised twice. That is why I am a retired hippie.

Okay, humour apart, if I got one life to do over it would begin in September of 2008 when I succumbed to values and invited my late father to come and live with me. The four subsequent years were the most stressful that I have had in my fairly long life and I would not like to have a repeat experience nor would I wish it on anyone else. I am not much for optimism of the past but there have been occasions when I have speculated as to how life would have been for me and my family had he not moved in with us.

But, life goes on, and I have put that part of my life behind me and am now back on placid waters.

I hope that you enjoyed reading my take on this subject which was chosen by Shackman for the weekly Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where five of us write on the same topic. The four other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order,  AshokgaelikaaMaxi, and Shackman. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, do give some allowance for that too!
