I wonder

Yesterday I felt like I was in a rut. It got me thinking about what things would be like today if I had made different choices in life. I wonder what life would be like right now if I hadn't taken my first nanny job and finished school instead. Right now I kind of wish that I had finished school first. Don't get me wrong, I loved that job and I'm so glad I had the chance to work for them and become good friends with that family, but today, I wish I had a degree. I also wonder if I would still be with that family had they not moved to Maine. I would be working on 3 1/2 years right now if I were still with them. I wonder if I would have finished school by now if I would have went back when I moved back to Michigan after Maine. I was planning on going back to school. I even had a student loan set up at the school waiting for me but then I decided to take another nanny job. If I wouldn't have done any of those things, would I have met Rob? Maybe. In the end, I think that living paycheck to paycheck and not having a degree is worth it. I wouldn't trade him for a degree and higher salary. Anyway, I'm going to be late if I don't stop. I just wanted to put a few thoughts out there.
