let me start this by saying this is not a REGRET post... but kids change things. shoot even just being pregnant changes things.
im pregnant with #2, ds is 5. im very happy with my life but there are things is miss from my "old" life. granted, just having kids is not the only major change (yay careers, moving, schools, marriage etc) but it is definitely one that greatly effects what we can and cant do.
so what do you miss?
for me its:
(after writing the list, i think a big factor is suburban vs city living... )
-music... like spending money on it, going to shows, actively seeking out new bands etc. im actually gonna be 21/22 weeks pregnant at a show in february haha. ive been waiting 10 years for this band to come back around lol... missed them when i was just graduating high school
-music- playing it... i used to play violin and dabble in other instruments... now i have my violin in the attic with a broken bow haha... i want to get a new one (a bow), just never think about it at the right time.
-going out with friends- still do occasionally but its very different. most of my friends still live in the city... we are out in the burbs... the one night i PLANNED to sleep out was my bachellorette party but that went all kinds of wrong haha.
-poetry/cultural stuff- i never had the nerve to write, but i loved going to all different events. from film screenings, to art exhibits to poetry slams.
-getting wasted and singing karaoke- im adding this cause im 17 weeks pregnant and would love a drink hahaha... and well, finding karaoke in the suburbs has proven difficult
