If you could go back in time and witness one event from your family’s history, what would it be? (Be specific). How would this change impact your life? How would this change impact the lives of those close to you?
Hmm, this is a question I’ve often thought about these past few weeks. Would a decision made in the past, change the future impact of my life, my families life? That’s a good question, it could change, but would it be for a better or worse situation than we are in now?
I don’t know if there’s just one event I’d want to witness, could witnessing an event change the outcome of something? Do you gamble with the fact that if you witness that event, various things may turn for the worse, or may turn out to be the best change for your life.
The only event I would have liked to witness (again) possibly could be witness the thoughts I had in my head when I made my decision to move to the USA and get married instead of getting my husband to move to Canada and get married and start a life there instead. Would we be better off? Be in a better situation, I don’t know, it would have impacted our lives greatly, and would probably have changed a lot of the history of our family as we now know it, would we have had the girls already? A house? there’s to many questions to think about going back to change history.
I think I’ll pass.

We’re just having a lazy day here today. It’s grey outside and just not nice.
Rodney is playing video games, I’m listning to music and just surfing the web.
We’ve made some bunny cookies we had left over from Easter, they’re in the oven now, they smell YUMMY!!!
The girls are having a painting day and enjoying the paints they got in their Easter Baskets this year.
I hope everyone is having a fun day in one way or another.
