Who says the flu should keep you from blogging?
I’m actually feeling a bit better today, after last night trying to fight down my 104.5 fever. Suffice to say that I spent most of the night in the shower or under a cold, wet towel.
Note to self: showers hurt like hell when you have a raging fever.
My fever hasn’t registered over 101 today (yet). I did a little work this morning, but promptly logged off the work laptop at 11am for the day.
I am just about to crawl into bed. But before I do….
did anyone see “The View” this week? Joan Rivers was guest hosting, and Barbara Walters asked the panel “what is/was your biggest regret in life?”
A pretty heavy question. Of course, Joy made a joke. And Elizabeth begged off the question with some wishy washy Mom answer, “I regret little things in a day, like I should have done this or that… but I am a Mom… so busy…” blah, blah… (I bet her answer really was she wish she didn’t have the smackdown with Rosie, but just my opinion). Elizabeth, I am sure you have a deeper regret than showing up late to an appointment. Plueeze…..
Anyhoo, Joan Rivers (who I love, don’t laugh) got all serious and said,”I wished I would have had another child.”
Barbara, who has a daughter, nodded in agreement, and exclaimed the same regret. That knowing look on their face, I’ve seen it. I teared up. I don’t usually get weepy watching The View.
It stung. All I could think of is fast forwarding 20 or 30 years (when I’m pushing 60-70) and thinking those words may come out of my mouth too.
Followed by “…. I tried, I really, really, tried“.
So I asked myself, what is my big regret? And the answer was no surprise…. I waited too long to have children.
Because in my perfect world, I would love to have three. At least, I always visualized that.
And now, having two may end up as a miracle, if the stars and moon align.
What’s your biggest regret?
