…Carole’s topic for this week threw me for a loop – “Time Periods You Would Visit If You Had a Hot Tub Time Machine”.
1. I hadn’t heard about the Hot Tub Time Machine; but I knew
2. there wasn’t any other time period I’d want to visit – clothes, food, hygiene, technology, feminism…God knew what he was doing to bring me here in the 1960’s. I’m pretty sure I was very unhappy in any previous life.
So I was planning a post about today. It snowed.

I babysat Charlie (at Katie’s – like last week). Got in a bit of knitting while he napped.

And when he had the second blowout of the day (you know what pears and winter squash can do to your digestive system) we gave him a bath.
|love that he’s covering up the boy-parts so I can share the whole photo!|
Then I walked Holly and drove home…grateful I wasn’t living in some other time period where today would’ve been … uncomfortable at best, and cold starving at worst.
But now I’ve had a glass of wine. and I thought I’d see what that Hot Tub Time Machine really was (please – I never want to live without google…ever!) and oh. It’s not about visiting a time before I was born, it’s about visiting a time I lived…and doing things just enough different that today turns out better/different.
Yep, nothing. still. I might be ok with revisiting a few time periods just to watch (and take a photo or two – I missed many photo opportunities when my girls were young). But I wouldn’t want to change a thing – in case today wouldn’t turn out exactly this same way.
