I was getting ready for the rest of my life, and I was excited!
Mom says that she wasn't.
I was engaged, to be married July 18th (later bumped to August 29th, then bumped again to ???)... so she thought that I would be leaving home, married to some guy that I would later find out, no one really liked...
Well, I sure showed them!
Ten years later, I am married to a totally different guy, whom they love... yes Merrill, YOU! And I have fulfilled my lifetime dream of being a mom, and being fortunate enough to be a homemaker too! My high school guidance counselor titled the "career" as a "domestic Goddess", on a little sheet she had with other information about me.
She was so confused why I was interested in early graduation, why I was so anxious to drop all unnecessary classes. I made a deal in the sixth grade at age 12, that if I took German, and got A's, for six years, they would count German as a fine arts credit, along with an elective credit each year. So senior year, I only had to take the one class, I filled the rest of my credits getting those A's and even playing sports, which helped fill PE requirements...
Oh, how I do not miss High School!!!!
But sometimes, when I look back, I wish that I hadn't wasted what could have been some fun years, with that goofball that was my fiance for such a short time.
Oh well... my dreams came true anyhow!
