Blog Challenge, Act your age...

If you could go back to any age again, how old would you want to be and why? What age would you least like to be and why?

Man, I had to really think about this one, it was hard. I finally came up with an answer though. If I could go back to any age, I would choose 23. Why? Because I had just "remet" Mike & we got engaged a few weeks after my b day. We were so in love, we had our whole lives to begin & look forward to. We didn't have any kids yet (obviously) & everything was "perfect", no cares in the world type of thing. Mike drove the coolest sports car, we owned a house (well, he did anyway), we were so... happy. (We still are, we just now have 4 kids & life is totally different, great, just different).

What age would I least like to be & why? Hmmm, I'm going to say 17. I had just gone off to college in a different state & got the dreaded phone call that really changed my life. My dad had had a major heart attack & they didn't think he was going to make it. I was flown home (I had NEVER even been on a plane before) so I could say my goodbyes. I had never been so scared in my life. Pops is now fine, he's beaten all the odds & is here & as ornery as ever LOL! He is seriously the World's Greatest Papa, & a pretty great Dad too! :)

Ahh yes, the dreaded phone call. I do remember the 5 mile walk down the hall to the HS office to take that same call from mom. My how times have changed!
