    The Good Ol' Days

    I often find myself wishing that I was a little kid again... wishing I had the opportunity to go back and make different decisions... to do things over I know that if I did have that chance, and I did change anything, a lot of things would be different in my life today. And I...

    No Worries...

    I would love to be a kid again! I had no bills, no problems, no responsibilities and no worries. I had only to worry about my grades and chores. Oh how I long for the old days!
