TT#30: Things I've Never Been Sorry I've Done

Thirteen Things about mom huebert

1. Married Hubby-- Well, I've had moments I've wondered about.... (Kidding, KIDDING!)

2. Had four kids-- I love them all, and sort of wish we'd had more.

3. Moved to Nebraska-- I just like it here.

4. Learned to play the violin-- I like the music I can make with it.

5. Homeschooled my children -- I've had my kids home with me a LOT, and have been able to create a closeknit family. (for the most part....)

6. Moved away from Kansas City-- I grew up there, but I don't miss it. The only thing I miss is that all the rest of my family is there, but I can go visit. I'm just glad I don't live there.

7. Bought a computer-- I was afraid maybe I'd be sorry for getting into the whole internet thing, but I'm not.

8. Planted lots of trees-- We have wonderful shade now.

9. Learned to drive-- My mom and grandma never did learn to drive. They were, and still are, too nervous. And besides, how would I get around out in rural Nebraska if I didn't drive?!

10. Stayed out of debt-- We have had very little debt over the years, and whatever we do get a loan for, we pay back as fast as we can. We have one credit card, and we pay it off every month.

11. Smoked-- I've never smoked, and I can't see myself ever starting. I think this is a good thing to keep off my to do list.

12. Forgave Hubby for the lousy honeymoon-- Part of it wasn't his fault, and the rest... well, I kept telling myself that the marriage was more important than the honeymoon, or even the wedding, for that matter. And whaddaya know-- I was right.

13. Learned to cook-- Let's just say it's come in real handy over the years....

Great list! I like all the things you're open to trying like planting trees, raising kids and learning to play the violin. Happy TT!

I loved the honeymoon one. We actually spent one night of our honeymoon sleeping in the car... his mothers very small sports car... at a rest stop... because he wouldn't listen to me. Like you I spent the night telling myself it wasn't about this one night, but about the rest of our lives. Now it is just a funny memory.

I congratulate you on daring to be different, and doing the things that had meaning to you.

Now that you've reminded me, I guess I've got to come up with thirteen of something....

I was born in Nebraska!! And I can empathize with your 'lousy honeymoon' too. But as you say it wasn't hubby's fault. We were robbed [our car was broken into, and everything was taken!]

My T 13 is shared, I hope you can find time to stop by if you haven't already! happy thursday!!

As a fellow homeschooler I am glad you are not sorry you have done that, too many people regret it, and that just isn't right.
Happy TT, Hope you'll visit my 34th T13...Weird Word Verifications" at The Cafe.
