This Open Thread Is Getting Sentimental

It’s Monday, and my littlest one has gone on holiday without me. I miss him so, and going through all those pictures of him, I gloss over the past by wishing he was still a baby and here with me. In reality, I didn’t sleep for 18 months.

But it’s normal to think you miss stuff that’s gone, isn’t it? Even when it was hard work while it was happening. (I also miss being a student sometimes, although that wasn’t all rosy.) What are you reminiscing about today?

I’m not really reminiscing lately because I have a lot to look forward to in the next year. I’m doing more imagining my awesome future than thinking of the past.

If I were to reminisce, I’d think about riding bikes with my best gal friend in elementary school. We rode all around the neighborhood and it was awesome.

I used to go on long bike rides around town on my own when I was… 13, maybe? I went everywhere. I wonder if my parents ever worried about me. The good old carefree days, eh?
Also, how exciting to have something awesome to look forward to! You lucky woman.
