    especially on mornings like today

    when I'm having trouble getting dressed. The weather's changing, and people think that it's old legend to be able to tell change is coming in your bones and joints. Both of my knees are moaning that fall is here, and winter soon behind. Not unpleasant thoughts, really, but the...

    Four years ago, my mom had a cerebral aneurysm.

    She survived, but hasn't been the same ever since. Two years ago, my grandmother passed away from cancer. I would want to go back to the time where none of my family was sick and just have more time.

    If I Could Turn Back Time

    That popular song from Cher "If I could turn back time.  If I could find a way.  I'd take back those words that hurt you and you'd stay."   I use to listen to that song and wish I could at times go back and take back some of the words...

    I would go back the medieval ages

    and see what it was like. I get how there was a lot of inhumane torture and inequalities in society, but it just fascinates me for some reason. Or I would go back to when I was a kid to relive my childhood and correct my horrific mistakes.

    I would have never gone back to you.

    if I didn't go back to you I wouldn't have moved out of my parents house, I wouldn't have gone to the hospital from getting attacked and breaking my nose, I wouldn't have started up drugs again, I wouldn't be where I am now. worse then where I started and without you again..

    I would go back to when I was 14.

    I wouldn't have let my first love go to NY where he was killed. I wouldn't have dated a guy with a kid. And I wouldn't have dropped out of college. I wouldn't have gotten stuck being miserable and trapped in my head.
